Today’s Daily Getaway installment is an offer to buy United domestic flight certificates for $280. Considering domestic roundtrips have been skyrocketing lately, this seems like a decent deal, however there are only a measly 20 of them for sale and you don’t earn miles on these trips. I suspect they will be snatched up instantly at 12:00 EST, but if you have time it may pay off to try your luck and keep refreshing – often times you can snag one a couple minutes later when someone decides they don’t want to purchase it (or their credit card isn’t accepted). That’s how I won my 15,000 Hertz points – just as I was about to give up, they magically showed up as available and I quickly checked out and paid with my American Express Platinum card, which got me 10% off the purchase – as all Amex cards do with this promotion.
