Discover America Daily Giveaways is starting back up on April 11th. The way it works is a limited number of discounted travel deals will be sold starting at noon EST each day over 5 weeks. These deals range from hotel points/vouchers to amusement park passes. Currently only week 1 and 2 deals have been posted (which I have posted below). Many of these deals will go fast, within minutes, so make sure to act quickly.

Few personal favorites:

Hyatt – although it states a free night hotel room for a certain price during their daily deal on Friday, April 15, they are really selling points at a discounted price. There are four different options for purchase, which can then be redeemed at Hyatt Hotels worldwide (pending award night availability). You are restricted to only purchasing 1 package per deal, but can purchase more than one deal.

  • 24,000 Gold Passport points for $250 (purchase price of 1 cent/point)
  • 30,000 Gold Passport points for $333 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)
  • 36,000 Gold Passport points for $415 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)
  • 69,000 Gold Passport points for $778 (purchase price of 1.1 cents/point)

Currently purchasing Hyatt points cost 2.4 cents/point, with a cap of 40,000 points a year, so this deal is less than half the cost! To redeem points at a top-notch hotel will run you 22,000 points (cat 6). For example, a room at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris will cost at least $900/night – however, you can purchase 24,000 points at $250, or a higher point package if staying multiple nights. Another example, is the Park Hyatt Buenos Aries (cat 5 – 18,000 points/night) cost about $500/night, but can purchase points for much less. Remember – when using points you cannot earn points or receive nights/stays towards status.

Radisson Hotel – On Thursday, April 21st you can purchase a 1 night Radisson Hotel voucher to be used at any of their hotels in the US for $89. While I am particularly not a fan of the Radisson Hotel chain, this is a great redemption in NYC. NYC hotels are at least $250/night on off-peak times, and in a big city you are never in your hotel room anyways. You can purchase 3 of these 1 night stay vouchers to be used anytime, excluding blackout dates which are subject to hotel’s availability. These vouchers have no expiration date also.

 

Pingbacks

  1. […] One of my favorites was just announced: Daily Getaway. From April 9 to May 11, AMEX partners with travel companies to give special breaks to help travel in the USA. Last year they offered 20% Marriott Gift Cards, Hyatt nights, Airline vouchers, theme park tickets, and lots of other items at discounted prices. Best of all, AMEX cardholders get an extra 10% off the already great prices! The deals go live at noon daily…I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the best ones. For more details about last year’s promo, check out this Boarding Area blog post. […]
