The U.S. Travel Association’s five-week Daily Getaways promotion is coming to a close soon, so you’ll want to make sure to jump on the deals while they’re still available.

This year, most of the promotions are hotel-related, and they’re available on a first-come, first-served basis. Also, you’ll want to be confident about your travel plans because these deals are also nonrefundable. Just keep in mind the promotion lasts until Oct. 20 — so you only have a few more days to take advantage.

Which deals are available?

The final three deals come from Best Western, The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas and Marriott.

The Best Western promotion, which kicks off on Oct. 18 at 1 p.m. EST, is for 10,000 Best Western Rewards points for $55 (835 deals available). Using this promotion, you’ll pay just 0.55 cents per point. TPG values Best Western Rewards points at 0.7 cents per point, meaning that your points haul for this promotion can be worth $70.

While this isn’t the flashiest deal, Best Western redemptions start at just 5,000 points a night. That means you’d be close to a redemption at a hotel such as Hotel Cabana Shores, BW Premier Collection in Myrtle Beach, which is only 12,000 points a night.

The next deal comes from the Venetian Resort on Oct. 19, also at 1 p.m. EST. There are two deals travelers can consider: a certificate redeemable for three nights in a one-bedroom suite in The Palazzo at The Venetian Resort for $850 (20 deals available) or three nights in a king suite for $650 (30 deals available). Given how few deals are available, you’ll want to act fast if this deal is of interest.

Las Vegas isn’t known for being cheap. But for three nights, you can score a room at one of the most iconic resorts in town for only $283 per night if booking the one-bedroom suite deal, or from $216 if booking the king suite. This could potentially save you upwards of $1,000 on your stay.

That’s because some nights in a Palazzo suite can cost as much as $530 per night.

Just remember that the certificate is valid through Dec. 27, 2022, and blackout days may apply. But the rate does include room, tax and resort fees.

The final Daily Getaways deal comes from Marriott on Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. EST. You can save 20% on Marriott gift cards, where a $100 card will cost $80, a $250 card will cost $200 and a $500 card will cost $400. More than 1,500 gift cards will be available in total, and you can purchase up to three.

The gift cards can be used at participating Marriott Bonvoy brands, such as the JW Marriott and The Ritz-Carlton, as well as on retail, spa, golf and food and beverage purchases.

Finally, keep in mind some past deals may still be available, so consider looking through previous promotions if you’re interested in a deal from a different brand.

For instance, Hilton’s buy points promotions are still available where you can buy 30,000 Hilton Honors bonus points for $150 (450 deals available), get 100,000 bonus points for $500 (225 deals available) and get 225,000 bonus points for $1,250 (176 deals available).

To determine whether or not these deals are a good value, we determined how much you’d spend per point with each deal:

  • Spending $150 for 30,000 Hilton points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.
  • Spending $500 for 100,000 Hilton points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.
  • Spending $1,250 for 225,000 Hilton points gets you points at a rate of .55 cents per point.

TPG currently values Hilton points at .6 cents apiece, so you can get a slight deal through the Daily Getaways promotion. Just keep in mind that spending $1,250 for 225,000 points is actually the worst value, however, so if you need to boost your Hilton balance, opt for one of the more affordable deals.

IHG and Choice also have buy points promotions still available, starting at just $25. Here’s the breakdown for Choice:

  • Spending $84 for 14,000 Choice points gets you points at a rate of .6 cents per point.
  • Spending $155 for 28,000 Choice points gets you points at a rate of .55 cents per point.
  • Spending $220 for 42,000 Choice points gets you points at a rate of .52 cents per point.

As we value Choice Privileges points at 0.6 cents each, this isn’t the best way to spend money to buy points unless you really need to top up your balance before a redemption.

Here’s the breakdown for IHG:

  • Spending $12 for 2,500 IHG points gets you points at a rate of .48 cents per point.
  • Spending $25 for 5,000 IHG points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.
  • Spending $125 for 25,000 IHG points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.
  • Spending $250 for 50,000 IHG points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.
  • Spending $500 for 100,000 IHG points gets you points at a rate of .5 cents per point.

We value IHG points at just 0.5 cents each so, again, this should really only be an option if you have a redemption coming up soon.

How to buy

There are no tricks to find these deals and discounts. Just head to the Daily Getaways page and search for your preferred deal. But be sure to act fast because past deals have sold out within seconds.

What credit card should I use for Daily Getaways?

In the past, Daily Getaways purchases have coded as general travel, which means you’ll want to use a credit card that has a category bonus for general travel such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x Ultimate Rewards points) or Ink Business Preferred Credit Card (3x Ultimate Rewards points; on the first $150,000 in combined purchases each account anniversary; then 1x), or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x points).
