Friday’s Daily Getaways deal: Buy Hyatt points at a discount
Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information and offers.
We're wrapping up the annual Daily Getaways promotion from the U.S. Travel Association, which has featured daily deals from major travel brands offering discounts of up to 50% off hotel points, theme park tickets, vacation packages, hotel stays and more, for the past two weeks.
Today, beginning at 1 p.m. EST on July 29 is the final day to shop the sale with a new offer to purchase World of Hyatt points at a rate much lower than TPG’s current valuation.
The promotion runs through Aug. 12 or as long as supplies are left, so be sure to head to the Daily Getaways website to purchase any remaining deals, which will be available online for the next two weeks. Some offers have already sold out.
You can review all of the daily offers here.
This sale is much anticipated yearly by those who like to stock up on different types of points or snag a discounted travel offer. Many TPG staffers have successfully shopped this “travel sidewalk sale” over the years. Just remember these promotions are nonrefundable.
Here’s what you need to know about the final sale of the 2022 Daily Getaways promotion.

July 29: Hyatt points for sale
Saving the best for last, Friday brings us an opportunity to save big on World of Hyatt points, which will be on sale with three buying options:
- Spending $396 for 30,000 World of Hyatt bonus points gets you points at a rate of 1.3 cents per point (two deals available).
- Spending $660 for 50,000 World of Hyatt bonus points gets you points at a rate of 1.3 cents per point (six deals available).
- Spending $960 for 80,000 World of Hyatt bonus points gets you points at a rate of 1.2 cents per point (eight deals available).
This is a good deal for two reasons but may be irrelevant for a third reason.
First, you can buy points through the Daily Getaways deal at a rate significantly less than our current valuation of World of Hyatt points — which is 1.7 cents per point.
Also, this is much lower than Hyatt’s public online promotion which offers the opportunity to buy points at 1.8 cents per point through Aug. 1.
We looked into how you could use this deal for specific properties. For example, if you buy the 30,000 World of Hyatt points, you could stay for two nights at the Andaz Savannah, a hotel that routinely goes for over $275 per night. Additionally, the destination fee of $33 per day would be waived when using World of Hyatt points.
Given the limited packages available per point quantity, however, this is a sale you'll want to jump on ASAP given the lottery style of limited quantities available.

How to buy
Just head to the Daily Getaways page to search among the remaining deals. Be sure to act fast if interested, though, because limited quantities remain after the first two weeks.
What credit card should I use for Daily Getaways?
In the past, Daily Getaways purchases have been coded as general travel.
This means you’ll want to use a credit card that has a category bonus for general travel, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3 points per dollar) or Ink Business Preferred Credit Card (3 points per dollar on the first $150,000 in combined purchases each account anniversary, then 1 point per dollar), the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2 points per dollar) or the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card (2 miles per dollar).
Through Aug. 12, you can explore savings — including up to half off hotel stays, theme park tickets and vacation packages — thanks to the return of the Daily Getaways program.
Be sure to jump on any offer you are interested in since there is a limited quantity of each available.
