Details: Daily Getaways Travel Deals Return In 2021

28
Update: This is a reminder that at 1PM ET on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, Daily Getaways is selling Choice Privileges points at a very attractive rate, significantly cheaper than Choice ever sells points directly. If you’re interested in this offer, get ready!

The Daily Getaways promotion has finally returned, and it potentially offers some awesome discounted travel opportunities. This year’s Daily Getaways deals are launching as of today, so I wanted to recap what’s available, especially as a further preview of the offerings have just been revealed.

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 every spring, though this year it’s returning in the fall, as it has been skipped for the last two springs due to the pandemic.

In the past Daily Getaways has partnered with major hotel groups, car rental 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 Getaways returning?

The Daily Getaways promotion is returning as of Thursday, October 7, 2021. To access the deals, simply visit the Daily Getaways website each weekday at 1PM ET, which is when the offers go live.

Historically there have been five weeks worth of promotions, with a different deal every weekday. Up until this point we’ve only learned about the offers for the first three weeks, so it remains to be seen if there’s anything beyond that.

October 13, 2021: Daily Getaways Wyndham Rewards offer

On Wednesday, October 13, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling Wyndham Rewards points at a discount. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points for $175

October 14, 2021: Daily Getaways Omni offer

On Thursday, October 14, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Omni stays. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • A two night weekend getaway for $175
  • One night at an Omni hotel for $235
  • A two night weekend escape for $245
  • Two nights at an Omni hotel for $334

In this case it’s not points being sold, but rather stay certificates. You’ll want to visit the promotion page to see exactly which hotels are eligible for these offers.

October 15, 2021: Daily Getaways Accor offer

On Friday, October 15, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Accor stays. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • A New York getaway for $1,000
  • A Washington DC getaway for $1,000

October 18, 2021: Daily Getaways Best Western Rewards offer

On Monday, October 18, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Best Western Rewards points. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • 10,000 Best Western Rewards points for $55

This is an opportunity to purchase Best Western Rewards points for 0.55 cents each.

October 19, 2021: Daily Getaways Palazzo & Venetian offer

On Tuesday, October 19, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Las Vegas hotel stays. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • Three nights in a Venetian Grand King Suite for $650
  • Three nights in a Palazzo Grand Bedroom Suite for $850

This has the potential to be a good deal, though based on blackout dates and the general lack of flexibility with these packages, I’d only take advantage of this if I definitely had a trip to Las Vegas planned, and could take advantage of this.

October 20, 2021: Daily Getaways Marriott offer

On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, Daily Getaways will be selling discounted Marriott gift cards. You’ll be able to purchase:

  • A $100 Marriott gift card for $80
  • A $250 Marriott gift card for $200
  • A $500 Marriott gift card for $400

This has the potential to be a solid deal, since this is a “good as cash” discount at a Marriott property.

Are the Daily Getaways deals worth it?

Based on what we’re seeing so far, I’m not sure I’ll be all that engaged with this year’s Daily Getaways offers:

  • Hilton Honors and IHG Rewards points will be sold at the same rate at which they’d be sold directly during a promotion; some people may still appreciate the opportunity to buy points if they’ve bought the maximum number of points a program will allow in a year, since Daily Getaways purchases don’t count towards that limit
  • Choice Privileges and World of Hyatt points will be sold cheaper than they’d be sold directly during a promotion, though I don’t have a need for Choice Privileges points, and the World of Hyatt points promotions tend to be more like a lottery, given the amount of interest
  • Wyndham Rewards points will be sold at a much higher cost than Wyndham Rewards sells them directly when there’s a promotion
  • I generally find the stay certificates too restrictive to even bother
  • The Marriott gift cards could be a good deal, but then again, there’s also generally quite a bit of competition for those

Bottom line

The Daily Getaways promotion is returning in the fall of 2021, following the offer being suspended for two springs due to the pandemic. As of now Daily Getaways will be available from October 7 through October 20, with a new offer every weekday. Some of the offers may interest people, but personally I’m not too excited.

Do you plan on taking part in the Daily Getaways 2021 promotion?

    Other than the obvious Hyatt deal (which I failed to get like most people that tried), the Choice points and Marriott gift cards are good deals. I got 4 sets of 42,000 choice points just now, and seems like since they raised the cost of points when buying through the usual portal (discounts apply to the higher rate), this was a good chance to snag some.

  2. CJ

    How long does it take for the points to show up ?

  3. jordan23

    Hyatt offering 16 total packages was garbage

    @Ben, FYI Daily Getaways no longer codes as Travel:

    A whopping 16 opportunities over the 3x Hyatt point offers.

    How do we sign up to receive these?

    I'm trying to view it, I've tried 3 different browsers. I've looked forward to this for some time now, over the last two years I've emailed USTA and sent messages via Twitter and got the standard reply of we're not having it this year, etc. Yes, they are hard to get into for some programs, easier for others. I've never had any luck on Hyatt but the Choice points I've bought plenty of and Best...

    I'm trying to view it, I've tried 3 different browsers. I've looked forward to this for some time now, over the last two years I've emailed USTA and sent messages via Twitter and got the standard reply of we're not having it this year, etc. Yes, they are hard to get into for some programs, easier for others. I've never had any luck on Hyatt but the Choice points I've bought plenty of and Best Western, Hilton and if memory serves, Marriott? In fact, I used the Marriott to buy a package deal with Southwest points and got my CP back when you could still do that.
    Something is definitely wrong with the site bc when I went on the 3rd browser, it says someone is trying to hack me from it, it isn't secure, etc. so they've probably been hacked or have some major issues right now. I'll start looking for deals as they pop up and hope they get the site working properly before it starts.

    Keep this in perspective as many will complain about these offers.

    Daily Getaways is put on by the US Travel Association, which is a non profit "lobbyist" that represents the US travel industry.

    Daily Getaways is a fundraiser for the US Travel Association. The offers are donations by the hotel chains, ect to support the US Travel Association.

    This is why some are great and some are terrible and why no one should...

    This is why some are great and some are terrible and why no one should be on here complaining about how they can't buy anything. USTA doesn't care who buys them just that someone does.

  10. Steve T

    I didn't see a way to access the previews on the Daily Getaways web site. Can you help.

    1. JoeSchmo

      Steve T - it seems the offers aren't viewable on Apple devices. I can see them on my work computer but not my iMac or iPhone.

  11. AZTravelGuy

    Oh good. The promotion that sells packages to a grand total of about 1000 people is back. I'll be liberal, let's say it's closer to 5000 people. Waste of time.

    Granted I purchased plenty years ago before there was massive exposure.

  12. Sean

    If I’ve already maxed out buying, for example, Hyatt points for the calendar year would I be ineligible from buying more through this promotion? I’m assuming the answer is yes but wanted to check. Thank you

    1. Murph

      I believe you are eligible still. This is separate from buying through the program itself (via points.com). Last time I was able to buy IHG and Hilton after I had maxed out…and when you could get a decent return on points.

  13. LuAnne

    Ben,
    Do you know if we need to register ahead of the promotion?

  14. Adam Garrett

    Daily getaways is now saying that offers can be previewed starting October 4th.

  15. Terri L

    Any updates yet on DG?

  16. Adam B Garrett

    I love Daily Getaways! Thanks for spreading the word!

  17. Bob

    The Choice points were always a smoking deal for Norwegian hotels in the summer time
    Those hotels are often best in town.

  18. Mike

    I'm still not convinced that the items they offer are even made available, given how quickly they supposedly sell out.

      I'm still not convinced that PS5 exists, given how quickly they supposedly sell out.
      I'm still not convinced that graphics card exists, given how quickly they supposedly sell out.
      I'm still not convinced that limited edition sneakers exists, given how quickly they supposedly sell out.

    Congrats to 5 people who'll be able to buy Hyatt points…

    1. Eskimo

      Technically, congrats to 5 robots who were able to buy Hyatt points.
      Beating few thousand other robots by 0.001 seconds and the first human by 3 minutes.

  20. Jill

    I am shocked by this announcement

  21. Tracy S

    This is excellent news, just in time to stock up on hotel points for the European trip we're planning for the spring.

  22. Andrew

    This is great news! Thanks for the heads up.

    1. JoeSchmo

      My sister is able to view the pricing details somehow, though I can't see it. She sees laughably small number of Hyatt points for sale in increments of 80k ($960), 50k ($660) and 30k ($396). There was a good number of Choice points and it says you can buy 4 of each increment. I didn't retain the pricing info on that.
