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. This year, the promotion is running from June 10 – July 12, 2013.Each week of the promo, five daily travel deals which go live at 1:00 pm EDT each day, and American Express cardmembers receive an additional 10% off their purchases, so be sure to use your American Express card if you buy any of these..

This year’s Daily Getaways promotion starts on Monday, June 10, and will feature a week of packages from Marriott, Harrah’s, Alamo, City Pass and Busch Gardens.

Looking ahead to week two, here’s what will be on sale from June 17-21 – there are plenty of Vegas packages as well as some points purchase options from Club Carlson and Avis discounts.

The ones that might be most enticing are the Club Carlson packages where you are essentially buying Club Carlson points for 0.385 cents each instead of the normal 0.7 cents they usually cost. Those $385 you’re paying for 100,000 points will get you two nights in a top-tier Radisson Blu property like the May Fair in London where room rates this summer are starting at about $450 per night – so this could be a really significant discount if you can find award availability. Plus if you have one of the Club Carlson co-branded credit cards you get the last night of any award reservation of 2 nights or more for free. So let’s say you have one of the credit cards and use 50,000 of those points to book a room at the May Fair for one night and then get the second award night for free. You’re paying $192.50 for those 50,000 points, but getting $990 in value – pretty huge savings.

That sale is on Wednesday, June 19, but besides that, here’s what else you can expect.

American Express Daily Getaways is back for another week of deals.

    The avis chairman’s club membership sounds great. Do you know anything more about it? Is there any other way of getting one? – thanks

  • Alex

    I think the chairman’s club is invite only. NetJet and Marquis Jet owners’ get it for free. Status matching could work. Amex Centurion card holder’s get it as well.

  • Marc

    Centurion does not give you Chairman’s at Avis

  • Alex

    My mistake. It gives Presidents correct? Or did they do away with that?

  • Raffles

    Given the generous Club Carlson earning rates on cash stays, I’m not sure that buying $385 on non-refundable points (and hoping for award availability) trumps $450 for a cash night at the May Fair.
