Folks who book hotels through Expedia or those looking for a luxury hotel stay in Arizona, Hawaii, or Las Vegas will do very well with next week’s Daily Getaways deals!

Daily Getaways is a promotion offered every year by the US Travel Association.

Each week, they have a different daily deal with discounts on hotels like Hyatt, IHG, and Club Carlson, car rental certificates from Alamo, and attractions like Universal Studios Hollywood.

How Does It Work?

Link:   Daily Getaways 2015

Until April 24, 2015, a new deal will be available on the Daily Getaways website each weekday at 1:00 pm Eastern Time.

Be ready to buy!  There are a limited number of deals, and once they’re sold out, the deal is done.  Sometimes they sell out in minutes.

Don’t Wait to Jump on These Deals, Because They Sell Out Quick!

You can NOT buy a deal until the date and time they are offered.

Note:   Last year, they offered a 10% discount when you used your American Express card.  But the discount is NOT available this time.

Deals for Week 5:  April 20 to April 24, 2015

1.   April 20, 2015:  Discount Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Stays

Want to treat yourself to a luxury hotel stay?  You can buy Fairmont Hotels & Resorts stay certificates at 3 hotels in Arizona and Hawaii.

You could get:

The great thing about these deals is that you do NOT have to use the certificates all at once.  You’ll get separate 1-night certificates which can be used together or separately (so you could do 3 nights at each Hawaiian hotel, for example).

And the certificates do NOT expire!

I checked the prices (including breakfast) at these hotels in June 2015.  If you paid cash, it would cost:

You’ll save money with all 3 deals, but the Hawaii hotels will save you the most (over $3,000 at the Fairmont Kea Lani!).  No wonder there are only 10 of each deal available!

2.   April 21, 2015:  Discount MGM Hotels Las Vegas Packages

If you didn’t get in on earlier Daily Getaways Las Vegas deals, you have another chance!

You could get:

Drool! Many of These Las Vegas Deals Include Fine Dining, Like Chef Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak at MGM Grand

I checked prices just for accommodations at each of these hotels, in the same room type.  I did NOT consider the cost of extras, like meals, show tickets, spa treatments, or limousines transfers.

For the same number of nights at each hotel, you’d normally pay:

Except for the MGM Grand deal, you’ll pay more just for the room (not even including all the extras) when you book directly through the hotel.  These Daily Getaways packages are an excellent deal!

Note:   There are limited quantities available, and each hotel has different terms, conditions, and blackout dates.  So read the fine print.

3.   April 22, 2015:  $1,000 Expedia Hotel Certificate and Elite Status

Here’s a great deal for Expedia hotel bookings which will sell out quickly.  But there are some important restrictions!

You can get a $1,000 Expedia+ hotel coupon, and +gold status through February 2016, for $650 through Daily Getaways.

Enjoy Perks and Upgrades at Expedia VIP Access Hotels With This Daily Getaway

Expedia+ is Expedia’s loyalty program.  With +gold status, you’ll get room upgrades and early check-in or check-out (if available) at Expedia’s +VIP Access hotels.

Paying $650 for $1,000 worth of hotel stays sounds like a great discount (35%), but the fine print says:

  • Coupons can only be used to book a +VIP Access or Expedia Rate hotel
  • Coupons can only be used onceAny leftover value is void
  • A coupon can only be applied to 1 hotel room per booking
  • Coupon values don’t apply to taxes or fees
  • Once a coupon is used, it cannot be refunded
  • Coupons can only be used on reservations paid for at time of booking

So you’ll have to use the $1,000 coupon on a single booking.  You can’t split it up for different hotel stays!

And you can only use the coupon on +VIP Access or Expedia rate (prepaid) hotels.  Bookings where you pay at the hotel aren’t eligible.

I wouldn’t book this deal unless I knew I had a $1,000+ paid stay coming up (and knew it was available on Expedia).  That said, I bet this deal will sell out fast!

Remember, you likely won’t earn hotel points or elite stay credits when you book hotels on 3rd-party sites like Expedia.

Bottom Line

The 5th week of Daily Getaways travel deals start April 20, 2015.

You could save money on Fairmont Hotels & Resorts stays in Arizona and HawaiiMGM Resorts packages in Las Vegas, and Expedia hotel bookings.

Remember, these deals usually sell out quickly.  And always do the math before you buy, because even though you’ll probably get a bargain, sometimes it’s not worth it.

And don’t forget to set a calendar alert for the deals you want.
