Update: The offer mentioned below for the Platinum Card from American Express has expired. View the current offer here.

American Express and the US Travel Association (a non-profit dedicated to promoting US travel) have teamed up to offer various discounts and deals with travel brands and loyalty programs including hotel packages, points/miles purchase promos, rental car deals and more over the course of a month or so. The last time they came around was in June 2013, but Amex and USTA have announced that they’ll be back in May and running May 19-June 20, 2014.

Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 4.32.37 PMDetails on this year’s packages will be released starting May 12, and they usually announce them week by week. As a reminder, past highlights have included the ability to purchase Hyatt points at an incredibly low 1.1 cent each, buying Choice Rewards points for 0.4 cents each (and you could then convert to Southwest points at a bonus), and purchasing Club Carlson points for 0.385 cents each – so some pretty great values if you know how to leverage the various loyalty programs.

There have also been some pretty fun Vegas packages, Hilton points packages, Hertz discounts and more, so if you read through the promos carefully, you are bound to find some interesting values. Not only that, but if you use an American Express card to purchase any of these – including cards many of us travel points people have like the Premier Rewards Gold, the Platinum and the Starwood Amex – you get another 10% off.

Just remember, the number of packages is limited and goes live at 1:00pm EDT each week, so if you’re interested, you have to act fast, especially with those points bundles. So though details are still scarce at the moment, stay tuned because I’ll be covering the deals as they are announced and writing about my top picks.

    Dumb question (just got my first Amex card recently)… where do they post these deals? On Amex or on the ustravel.org site? Or do they email deals to the cardholders? Thanks!

  • ed

    LindaK, most likely here: https://dailygetaways.ustravel.org/
    If not there, that link will give you the correct URL.
    You can use ANY Amex to get the discount.

    trying to take advantage of the boston –> dubline via avois deal. Any chance this program offers a transfer bonus?

  • studd

    why would anyone want more pts when they can devalue or disappear at any time and for any T&C “violation.” Really AMEX must think we are crazy to want more points!!

  • Trying to travel

    Can I use the amex JetBlue and get 10%?
