Daily Getaway Leftovers – What’s Worth Buying?

latest IHG Pointbreaks

There are 10 Daily Getaway leftovers here! Find out what is still available and what is worth buying. There are a couple of good options here!


Yesterday closed out 5 weeks of the Daily Getaways. I ended up with some IHG points (the day before I found this great deal for IHG points), 3 Alamo certificates, 7 Avis certificates, and a Hertz package. Yes, I went kind of heavy with car rentals. 🙂 Given the cities I normally visit, a single day rental can be very expensive so these will save me a lot of money! Hope you were able to get what you were looking for as well.

Daily Getaway Leftovers

There are still many Daily Getaway leftovers. Below, you will find the list and what I feel may be worth buying still.

What’s Worth Buying?

Everyone will have a different level of value for various deals. For example, I have not been to an amusement park in 16 years or so. Because of that, I would not value the tickets the same as others.

That being said, I do not think the SeaWorld is that good of a deal since you can get discounted tickets direct from them. The Busch Gardens is a better deal at 50% off instead of buying direct.

If you want to grab IHG points easily, I would buy one of those packages. The best one to buy? Buy the 15,000 IHG points. That will give you 3 nights at PointBreak hotels for only $30 each night.

If you want to splurge on a luxury short trip, the Loews suite deals in San Francisco and Miami Beach are decent deals, depending on when you go.

Finally, I would consider the 15,000 Wyndham points as a good deal. While I am not normally a proponent of speculative purchases for hotels, this could present a great value. With over 8,000 Wyndham properties around the world, it could be a great deal to only have to pay $175 for a night. Also, you can get 5 nights with the Go Fast option – mixing points and cash. Those can present extreme value for big events.


This year’s Daily Getaway had some great deals like the Hyatt points and the Marriott gift cards. Obviously, it is easy to assume that whatever is leftover is not that great of a deal but there are some ok options left.

  • Years ago, prices were similar to what they are now, but you’d get a 10% discount if you used an Amex card. That made “okay” deals that are listed above to be real “winners”. Obviously, AMEX pulled the plug on that (I think about 2 or 3 years ago) like they are doing on many of their current credit card promotions.
