USTA Daily Getaways

Postby CarefulBuilder14 » Mon Apr 25, 2016 12:42 pm

Is anyone else doing these? I got a moderately good deal with IHG, and hope to get some Hyatt points on Friday if I'm free at 1:00. That deal will probably go very quickly.

It does code as "travel" for 2x on CSP. Two years ago there was a discount if you paid with an Amex, but I think that's gone.

I haven't even heard of these. Can you provide some more information?

It's a mix of deals...point and gift card purchases for major hotel chains...lots of Vegas casino/resort packages...car rental deals.

I got 15k Wyndham points for $150, and I might buy another 15k.

One nice thing about Wyndham is that they seem to have excellent award availability. That can definitely be a weakness with Hyatt. As Hyatt's cash prices rise, award availability definitely seems to dry up.

I wasn't trying to get either one, but both Fairmont deals went in about a minute.

Fingers crossed for Hyatt.

Did anyone succeed with Hyatt?

I didn't, despite trying to buy in the first few seconds. :(

Oh well. At least I can get more IHG. :)
