(EXPIRED) $30/day Avis rentals at 1pm Eastern 4/13

Today (Friday, April 13th) at 1pm Eastern time, Daily Getaways will be offering one of the few deals that looks almost universally good: Avis 1-day car rentals for $30 (President’s Club membership will also be available for $750). While there are certainly times when you can rent a car for less than $30 per day, there are also plenty of times when it would represent a nice discount over normal rates. Note the restrictions below before…

IHG points on sale for .576 cents each at 1pm, but only buy if you need them now

Today’s Daily Getaways deal is a sale on IHG points, from 0.576 cents per point. This deal starts at 1pm Eastern time today (Wednesday, April 11th, 2018). That’s actually a bit higher than our Reasonable Redemption Value for IHG points (0.57 cents per point), meaning that you should only get in on this if you have a specific high-value redemption in mind. That said, if you recently opened the new IHG Rewards Club Traveler or IHG…

(EXPIRED) Buy Choice points at a great rate if you’re fast (4/10 @ 1pm Eastern)

Tuesday, April 10th only, at 1pm Eastern time (about an hour from the time this post publishes), you’ll have an opportunity to buy Choice Privileges Points at well below our Reasonable Redemption Value. You’ll have to be pretty quick with it as this is an item that usually sells out within seconds, though there are more available this year so it’s possible that the packages won’t all go out of stock instantly. Daily Getaways If you haven’t heard,…

The one real deal still available: Daily Getaways 2017 weeks 4 and 5

JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Marriott Rewards Sweet Spot

On Friday last week, I stepped off a plane at about 12:55pm and began walking towards the airport exit.  At 12:59, I pulled to the side and opened the Daily Getaways website in my iPhone browser.  Last week, there were several good Daily Getaway offers, but the one I was most interested in was the chance to buy Choice Privileges points at .45 cents each, or less.  While Choice points are probably most valuable in…

3 out of 5 ain’t bad: A quick guide to Daily Getaways 2017 week 3 (out of 5)

There are some excellent deals this week!  Not only is this week 3 out of 5 for the Daily Getaways, but also three out of five deals this week have earned my thumbs-up.  And, I’ve added a new feature to the guide: info about how many deal items are available.  After all, in my opinion, when there are fewer than 50 available in-total, it’s not even worth bothering with those at all. The Daily Getaways…

The Other Way to get cheap Choice points is almost here (Daily Getaways). Should you buy?

Last week I reported that Chase was no longer offering the Amtrak credit card (See:  Chase kills the Amtrak card. Why you might care…).  Then, I reported that working signup links had been found (See: Amtrak zombie links found; should you hop on?).  Then, the next day, the last remaining links died.  So what?  Who would want an Amtrak credit card anyway?  The answer is that the Amtrak credit card unlocks the ability to transfer…

Chase kills the Amtrak card. Why you might care…

I was never interested in the Chase Amtrak card.  Sure, it can be used to earn Amtrak points, and those can be valuable, but there was always a better option for earning those points: Chase Ultimate Rewards.  Ultimate Rewards points transfer one to one to Amtrak (and to a number of airline and hotel partners) as long as you have a premium card such as the Sapphire Preferred or Ink Plus.  So, why get an…
