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 additional 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 Credit Card from American Express.
Wednesday June 11, 2014: Universal Studios Tickets
- One four pack of two-day Universal Studios Hollywood Tickets for $336, 94 available
Four two-day passes on the Universal Studios website comes out to $436 for four adults (tickets are $109 for adults and $101 for kids). If you’re certain you’d like to visit the park, this is a great money saver, especially if you plan on using your Amex card for the additional discount, which would take the price down to $302. I am not into theme parks myself, but this is a excellent money saving deal, especially if you’re planning a family trip to California. There are only 94 packages available, and this park is a popular tourist destination, so be ready to buy promptly when the deal goes live.
