Daily Getaways is a travel promotion sponsored by American Express and the U.S. Travel Association, a non-profit trade association with the mission of increasing travel to and within the US, where you can sometimes purchase points and miles packages for a fraction of the price they would normally cost. I’m not really excited about the first week’s offers, though an 11% discount off Marriott stays isn’t bad, and that goes up to about 20% if you pay using an Amex since you get an additional 10% discount, so if you know you have some Marriott stays coming up for sure, that could be a good value for you.

These deals will go live every Monday-Friday at 1:00 pm EDT. In addition to the discounts on these deals, American Express cardmembers receive another 10% off when using an Amex card to purchase them, so be sure to use your American Express card for the most savings.

This year, the promotion is running from June 10 – July 12, 2013 and Amex has just announced the first two weeks’ packages.

Here’s the sales calendar for Week 1:

  • Joe

    Are there shipping fees associated with gift cards?

  • rosaic

    The deal looks much worse than last year

  • Frank

    Are these certificates good on any Marriott rate, or only on certain room rates?

  • thepointsguy

    Looks like all rates, the only restrictions are that: “Card may not be used for deposit, advance purchase or to secure a reservation.”

  • thepointsguy

    They’re sent by US mail, so it looks like no.

  • Jeremy

    Do these things sell out within seconds?

  • Vinnie

    How do I buy the Marriott gift card? Can’t seem to get to the site to purchase it. Please help

    click ‘buy now’ at exactly 1pm (was watching the clock turned from 12:59p to 1p), and the site said the deal is sold out. What a waste of time to even try to get these deals.
