Daily Getaways returning in June of this year

Daily Getaways is a promotion sponsored by the US Travel Association and American Express, offering some amazing travel packages at a discount. You can find some of the 2012 offerings here, for example.

It looks like the promotion will be back this year, though two months later than in the past. A preview will be available on June 3, while the actual promotion will start on June 10, 2013.

While some great deals can be had, to be honest I found it more of a gimmick than anything else last year, given the limited quantities of packages and insane number of people competing for them. Hoping for better luck this year, and especially that Hyatt and/or Starwood points return at a reasonable cost!

  1. I’m a big fan of the $50 Alamo rental certificates for $25 (can use up to 3 on one rental).

    I was also able to score some Wyndham points, which ended up as a night at the Ramada New Yorker hotel pre-devaluation, 12,000 UA miles (which pushed an additional 5K miles thanks to a UA promo :)) and 12,000 AA miles.

    None of the deals are life-changing, but there’s decent value.
