The Daily Getaways have traditionally been a great way to lock in some travel certificates/points for less than retail. Every year, I am a buyer for things like car rental discounts and some points, depending on if I am luck enough to buy them! One year (the last year they had them, 2019), I actually was their grand prize winner for their $10,000 travel getaway! So, yeah, I am fond of Daily Getaways!
The 2021 Daily Getaways
The Daily Getaways are sponsored by the US Travel Association and are typically held in April/May for about 5 weeks. This year, they slid it to October and for less time.
On the calendar they have published, it is just hotels – no car rental certificates or elite status this time. Not a complete surprises since the car rental market in the US is total chaos. Also, there are not a lot of “gotta have” discount options. Like, for today, Hilton points. They are selling multiple packages that work out to .5 cent per point. Not only is that about what they are worth but that is also what you will pay when Hilton themselves put the points on sale. In other words, definitely not a must-have for anyone.
In fact, I think maybe the only reason someone may buy would be to get around the cap that Hilton has on purchasing points in a year. This is not a purchase from Hilton so it should be fine to give you as many points as you plan to buy.
If you are interested in this Hilton package deal, be ready to go at 1PM today, October 7. But, they will likely be around for a while.
- 30,000 Hilton points for $150 (450 packages available)
- 100,000 Hilton points for $500 (225 packages available)
- 250,000 Hilton points for $1,250 (176 packages available)
Now, tomorrow is a different story when Hyatt points go on sale!!!
