The weeks of the Daily Getaway deals have come to an end. There were some pretty good deals to be had and I got in on a few of them. Of course, I missed out on the one I really wanted, but so did many others!

What’s Worth Getting?
Unless you are a looking for a high-class, quality weekend in Miami or New York (and you were planning on paying a lot for it anyway), I would pass on the Loews hotel packages.
The Omni Hotel option is a decent deal since you are paying only $123 per night at properties that could cost quite a bit more than that. Now, I am not sure if it will be available for this, but if you are planning on running the Richmond Marathon in November (a great marathon!), I would consider this package. That is because this is the official hotel for the marathon. Rates are $179 per night plus tax so not that much more than this package, but still something to consider if you wanted to save some money. Or, just use it at any of the other locations.
The IHG points are at the same price as you could buy them if you use the trick of redeeming for a points and cash night and then cancelling the reservation (and they refund you in points instead of the cash you spent). Sure, the same price, but the ease of doing it this way may make more sense. I would actually consider it a good deal to pick up the 15,000 point package so that you have 3 nights of Pointbreak hotels ready for the next list.
Finally, I would definitely consider the Wyndham offer. That is 15,000 points for only $150 and could either get you a single free night or 5 nights of points and cash. As I have written before, this could be a huge deal for hotels in sold-out cities!
