The Daily Getaways promotion is returning as of Monday, June 12, 2023, and could potentially offer some awesome discounted travel opportunities. Daily Getaways has just released some previews of the offers we can expect, so let’s go over what we know so far.
What is Daily Getaways?
Daily Getaways is a promotion that’s run by the US Travel Association, which is intended to encourage tourism within the United States. This has historically been offered once per year, though it was suspended during part of the pandemic. The promotion was last offered in the summer of 2022, so it will have been a year since the promotion was last available.
Daily Getaways partners with major hotel groups, rental car companies, theme parks, etc., to offer discounted travel packages. These promotions come in different forms, from vouchers for travel experiences, to points packages, to discounted gift cards.
When is Daily Getawaysreturning?
The Daily Getaways promotion is available this year for four weeks, between Monday, June 12, 2023, and Friday, July 7, 2023. To access the deals, simply visit the Daily Getaways website each weekday at 1PM ET, which is when the offers go live.
What kind of deals does Daily Getaways offer?
Daily Getaways has so far revealed the first two weeks worth of offers that we can expect for this year’s promotion. This includes deals with Accor, Best Western, Choice, Hilton, IHG, Marriott, Omni, Wyndham, and more.
More specifically, here are some of the offers we can expect:
- On Monday, June 12, you can buy IHG One Rewards points for as little as 0.5 cents each

Are Daily Getaways deals worth it?
Back in the day, participating in Daily Getaways was almost unarguably worth it. The program had amazing deals, and there wasn’t that much competition for the packages. However, over the years the value proposition has worsened a bit.
Not only did some of the best deals become less valuable, but competition for the better promotions has increased significantly. For example, I’d say buying World of Hyatt points is more like a raffle than a promotion, based on how quickly the packages sell out (I suspect that offer will be available in week three or four).
So it’s always worth keeping an eye on what’s available, but I wouldn’t be planning any travel around this just yet.
The Daily Getaways promotion is returning as of June 12, 2023, and we now have a preview of what we can expect in the first two weeks. You’ll be able to buy discounted points with Best Western Rewards, Choice Privileges, Hilton Honors, IHG One Rewards, and Wyndham Rewards, as well as discounted gift cards with Marriott.
Do you plan on taking part in the Daily Getaways 2023 promotion?
Your write up mention buying Hyatt points, but there is no Hyatt points offered this time around
Funny, you post a photo from a Bodrum, Turkey Hotel but write about the possible "bargains" any overpriced US Tourist attraction or accommodations might offer?
Am i glad, there is NO EDITION property in the US that i know, that could compare in any way with Bodrum! ;-)
I travel to Europe at least once a year, and using Choice points for Nordic Choice hotels made buying those very worthwhile. So far the Nordic parent company changing to Strawberry hasn't affected bookings for those hotels... (I keep hoping a trip works out where I can use them in Japan or India as well, but that hasn't panned out yet.)
Otherwise I might get some IHG on general principles, but that's about it unless they later reveal something I specifically need.
I have regularly purchased Choice Privileges packages from this program in the past, but with the purchase cost increase for these points and the decreasing value of them when it comes time to redeem them, I think the "deal" is pretty much gone.
I still find this a pretty good deal. Choice has a lot of properties in places I usually travel like around national parks where other hotels might not have that much presence. Redeeming choice points at such properties usually gives 1-1.5 cents worth of value which is much higher than what they are selling for in these promotions.
20% off of a Marriott gift card may be interesting, as you can use the gift card for yourself to pay for a room,. You'll have paid 20% less for what it woukd be counted for at the hotel.
