American Express and the US Travel Association (a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting US travel) have partnered to offer discounts and deals with various travel brands and loyalty programs during the next month, including hotel packages, points/miles purchase promos, rental car discounts and more. These deals are called the Daily Getaways.

Each day we’ll hash out the details of that day’s deal to see whether it’s worth taking advantage of.

Today’s deal goes live at 1 pm EDT, and you can sign up for alerts if you’d like to be notified when the deals go live.

All of these promotions have the added benefit that you can save an extra 10% for purchasing with an Amex card, like the Platinum and Premier Rewards Gold, or even co-branded cards like Delta Gold and the Starwood Preferred Guest Amex.

A 5 night stay at a Diamond resort for $600

Daily Getaway For Thursday, May 29: Diamond Resorts

  • Five night stay at a Diamond Resorts property worldwide for $600 (200 available)

If you specifically want to stay at a Diamond Resort, this deal has value. A quick search on the Diamond Resort website showed me a five night trip to the Scottsdale Villa Mirage in October costs $967.50 in total. At $600 (or $540 with the Amex discount) you’ll save $300-$400 off the regular price. The price for the Alpine Club in Austria is around $130-150 per night, so again this deal would allow you to book it for cheaper. There’s good value if you know you want to stay at a Diamond Resort and you price out your specific location ahead of time to make sure the savings is significant.

However, keep in mind that Diamond Resorts are actually timeshares, so you’ll be staying in a timeshare resort as a non-timeshare owner. Since I don’t have much experience with timeshares, I probably wouldn’t book this offer just because I usually prefer a hotel or Airbnb type lodging, but if you have experience with timeshares and like them, this deal offers a significant discount.

There are only 200 of these deals available, so if you’re interested, have your Amex ready and jump on it when the sale begins.
