For the past couple years the U.S. Travel Association (a non-profit trade association with the sole mission to increase travel to and within the US) and American Express have teamed up with travel providers and loyalty programs to offer some unbeatable deals on travel packages and miles/points. It usually runs in May, but I just got the following email announcing the return of the program, but a little bit later this year:
Daily Getaways“Save the date for Daily Getaways this summer! Every weekday from June 10 to July 12, 2013, amazing travel offers from America’s top travel brands will go on sale at discounts up to 60% off. Save big on your next vacation through the purchase of travel points, hotel packages, theme park tickets and more at DailyGetaways.com.”

Each year these deals get more popular, so I hope this year they increase quantities. Last year it was a bit of a lottery and I suspect this year it will be the same, but more like Powerball. Some highlights of past deals:

Hyatt points for under a cent a piece
Choice Points at 4/10th of a cent each
100,000 Club Carlson points for $385

You usually get 10% off by paying with an American Express card and even though the packages are marketed as “Two nights in XYZ  hotel”, you are really just purchasing points.

Stay tuned for more details, but mark your calendars!
