The US Travel Association has a yearly promotion called Daily Getaways which are in their last week now. You can access the calendar of deals here:


They are always a mix of terrible deals and great deals. There are three great ones on tap the next week.

  1. Orbitz has a deal on Weds for a $1,000 promo code for $650. You’ll need to spend it all in one place and can’t change or cancel the booking after, but for 35% off, it’s a great deal despite that fact that the stays won’t be stay/status eligible at most hotels.
  2. On Thursday, May 3rd, Marriott is selling gift cards for 20% off. If you pay cash at Marriott hotels *ever*, this is a great deal. Hard to quibble with a flat 20% off a gift card!

  3. And on Tuesday, May 8th, you can buy Hyatt points for a hair over a penny apiece. I easily value Hyatt points at 2 cents a piece, given the award tier structure and value you tend to get (I can often get a $400+ hotel for 12,000 points, etc.). You can even book suites with points.

    The only reason you might not be interested would be if you earn Chase Ultimate Rewards at a rapid rate, since Hyatt is a 1:1 transfer partner.


If these interest you, you may want to signup for them to send you reminders and also make a note yourself a few minutes before the on-sale time. I expect all of these will go in minutes at the most.
