Weeks 4 & 5 Of Daily Getaways Announced – 20% Off Marriott GCs, Cheap(er) Hyatt Points & More

The final two weeks of Daily Getaways deals have been announced and there are at least two that could be of interest – Marriott gift cards and Hyatt points.

You can find week 4 deals here and week 5 deals here. May 30 will see three denominations of Marriott gift cards go on sale for 20% off. There’ll only be 200 of the $500 denomination with a limit of 1, 252 of the $250 denomination with a limit of 2 and 1,070 of the $100 denomination with a limit of 3. Those sell out extremely quickly, so you’ll want your finger on the trigger just before 1pm ET on May 30.

The day before, Hertz points will be going on sale for between 4.23cpp and 5.09cpp. I’m not familiar enough with Hertz points to know how good of a deal that is, but I’m sure that in some cases you’ll be able to get good value out of those points.

On the penultimate day of Daily Getaways you’ll have the opportunity to buy World of Hyatt points. Those are going on sale in packages costing between 1.04cpp and 1.1cpp. If you have a specific redemption in mind, you could certainly get outsized value by buying these. For example, each package means you’d effectively be paying ~$55 for award nights at category 1 properties as those cost 5,000 points per night.

The final Daily Getaways deal will be Hilton Honors points. All three packages will be selling points for 0.5cpp which is the rate at which you can often buy them, so it’s not a once in a lifetime Daily Getaways year opportunity. The RRV of Hilton points is 0.45cpp so that’s another strike against the packages, but if you’re short on their points and can redeem for far more than 0.5cpp, it’s worth considering.

Hertz can be an amazing deal. One-way rentals can be as low as 1100 per day. Often cash prices are 120$ per day on one-way rentals. Best redemption so far this year: 1100 points for 250CAD one-way, one-day rental. We are a family of 5 and often use one-way rentals when open-jawing between airports. Have also used them to get between LAX and Disney Anaheim. Much cheaper than shuttle bus for 5, and easy to do a grocery pickup. With one-way rentals you can reserve up to Premium size cars. Kids enjoy bigger back seat, parents enjoy extra trunk space for kids stuff.

Do hilton or hyatt points bought this way count towards the annual limit? What if you’ve already reached each limit?

Hilton points purchased through Daily Getaways definitely don’t count toward the annual limit. Not sure about Hyatt as I’ve never been lucky enough to get Hyatt points through DG, but I suspect they wouldn’t count either.

The Hyatt point packages state that they can only be used on a specific category hotels for two nights. Is this something Hyatt can enforce or should I be able to use them in lower category hotels to get more nights?

I think that language is meant to emphasize *up to* a specific category. They just deposit points. I wouldn’t think there is a way they could limit how you spend them.

That’s what I was thinking but the details are very specific in every package saying that it can only be used for two nights at a specific category. For example, the 24,000 package is for 2 nights at a category 3; the 30,000 at a category 4; 40,000 at category 5 and the 72,000 for three nights at a category 5 hotel.
