Daily Getaways Week 5 Posted!

I am very excited to announce that Week 5 of the Daily Getaways offer is now posted! We are currently in Week 3 of the 5 week program and for those of you who have been following my blog (along with many other travel blogs) know that today was one of the best offers yet with the Wyndham Rewards points. I was able to purchase 3 offers for a total of 130,000 points and Mr. Deals was able to purchase 2 (one during the pre-sale and one during the regular sale) for a total of 78,000 points. This was an amazing deal! I have not figured out yet how I will use these points, but I will be sure to keep you posted.

While I’ve been slightly disappointed with the offers up until now, Week 5 could potentially be promising for some. Hyatt and Radisson points could be a decent deal depending on how you plan to use them. Remember that you’ll receive an additional 10% off the price listed if you use an American Express card. Also keep in mind that these sales go quick (as we saw today), so make sure to not delay. Offers go on sale at 1pm EST sharp and can sell out within seconds.

While none of the deals are nearly as good as today’s Wyndham promotion, they could be beneficial depending on how you plan on using them. The one kicker is the offers for Week 5 are EXTREMELY limited. I was hoping for a free night certificate at any US Radisson hotel for $80 (like they had last year), but it looks like they are instead selling points. I might try for some of the Hyatt points, but have a feeling these will be extremely difficult to purchase.

Has anyone taken advantage of any of the deals thus far?

  1. Is this one really right? This would stomp all of these other deals at this price…missing a digit?. ‘6 nights to be redeemed at two Hawaii properties: The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui or The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii for just $175’.

    • @steelsnow – Unfortunately I missed a 0 in there. The price is $1,750. Thanks for pointing this out, I just updated. That would have been AMAZING though.

  2. The purpose of the web site http://www.ustravel.org is to encourage travel to the USA by foreign tourists? I was on it today trying to grab a Wyndham points package. I was lucky enough to get one but when I went to pay for it, it wouldn’t accept my Canadian address for the credit card. It only accepts US states! I just assumed that business is sooo good they didn’t need any visitors from abroad wanting to spend money…

    • @hotshotcourier – I am not sure that it is to enourage travel to the US by foreign tourists, but instead to encourage US citizens to travel. The site says that it is: “Aimed at stimulating travel in time for summer.” Unfortunately it is limited to those with a US address/credit card.

  3. Thank you for the details. I was also thinking of getting hyatt but it seems like hyatt has a different rate for grand and regency brand but the description on the dailygetaway says it includes those brands. For example, dailygetaway says 36000 hyatt points for 2 nights at category 5 hotels including, Grand and Regency. But their award chart says cat 5 hotels in grand and regency brands need 22000 points er night, meaning 44000points for 2 nights…Which one is correct? Or am I missing something?
