For the past couple years the U.S. Travel Association (a non-profit trade association with the sole mission to increase travel to and within the US) and American Express have teamed up with travel providers and loyalty programs to offer some unbeatable deals on travel packages and miles/points. It usually runs in May, but I just got the following email announcing the return of the program, but a little bit later this year:
Daily Getaways“Save the date for Daily Getaways this summer! Every weekday from June 10 to July 12, 2013, amazing travel offers from America’s top travel brands will go on sale at discounts up to 60% off. Save big on your next vacation through the purchase of travel points, hotel packages, theme park tickets and more at”

Each year these deals get more popular, so I hope this year they increase quantities. Last year it was a bit of a lottery and I suspect this year it will be the same, but more like Powerball. Some highlights of past deals:

Hyatt points for under a cent a piece
Choice Points at 4/10th of a cent each
100,000 Club Carlson points for $385

You usually get 10% off by paying with an American Express card and even though the packages are marketed as “Two nights in XYZ  hotel”, you are really just purchasing points.

Stay tuned for more details, but mark your calendars!

    I was just thinking about this the other day. I snagged the Hyatt points last year. Came in very handy.

    Right on with the Right on!! I purchased 100,000 Club Carlson points last year that I used in DUBLIN Ireland this past November. Can’t wait to splurge again.

    One deal that I thought didn’t get a lot of coverage attention last year
    but sold out almost instantly was the Hertz deal. I don’t remember the
    exact #s, but it worked out to be very cheap rentals for pricy places,
    such as NYC, Hawaii, etc.

    I sat there an hour before each one went live for AmEx cardholders (I think there was a head start) and a few minutes later the offers where gone. This is good stuff. I’ve been getting lots of great use from my Alamo gift certs.

    May you use an AMEX pre paid card and still get the 10 percent or does it have to be a AMEX branded CC? Thanks.
