Welcome to week 3 of Daily Getaways — the annual five-week-long travel discount extravaganza hosted by the US Travel Association. Offers this week include discounted Alamo car rentals, Loews hotel stays, Caesars properties, Best Western points and Universal Orlando packages.

Each deal will go live at 1:00pm ET, so make sure that you set your alarm a few minutes earlier than that if you’re really interested in snagging a deal. Based on the Daily Getaways purchases I made in week one, these purchases code as travel. So, make sure to use a credit card that has a category bonus for general travel such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x Ultimate Rewards points) or the Chase Sapphire Preferred (2x points).

Let’s dive into the details to see which offers you might be interested in this week:

In This Post
