Today’s Daily Getaway offer is from Choice Hotels.
In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying.
For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes. It’s also important to be patient. If you click shortly after an offer becomes available and it shows sold out, keep trying. Someone may have an offer in their shopping cart but change their mind or have their computer crash. When that happens, their bad luck or change of heart can be your good fortune.
There’s no 10% discount this year for paying with an AMEX card. However, it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the pricing of most deals, with some being slightly better (and others the same or slightly worse) than last year.
40,000 points for $160
32,000 points for $132
36,000 points for $155
20,000 points for $90
You can see my full breakdown from last year, which is still pretty accurate(though the Southwest Rapid Rewards math has changed since their devaluation last year). The prices are closer to .4 cents a piece this time around, a bit cheaper on some packages, though the most expensive 40,000 point package is a bit more than last year. You’re limited to 2 of each package and a total of 8 packages per Choice Privileges account.
There’s value to be had here if you follow the program (I don’t). A quick perusal of rates again this year shows that you can save 20-30% without trying too hard.
