Things have finally gotten back to a bit more of a normal state for me around here so it felt good to be able to get back to posting a bit more. The one thing that I really wanted to grab this week, and missed, was some of those Hyatt points from the Daily Getaway deal. They were available at great prices and, because of that, they went fast! I mean, I hit the Buy buttons as soon as it went live and – nada! Any of you walk away with a package or two? If so, congrats!
