1.   Las Vegas Packages Available Tomorrow

Link:   Daily Getaways Las Vegas Deals

If you’re interested in a pampered Las Vegas vacation, tomorrow’s Daily Getaways deal is for you!  You can purchase packages ranging from $475 to $2,000.  That sounds expensive, but these deals are worth much more!

Las Vegas Goes On Sale Tomorrow And Marriott Refuses To Adopt Generous Starwood Policy
Get 3 Nights in a Bellagio Suite, 2 Tickets to a Cirque du Soleil Performance, Dinner for 2 at the Bellagio, $500 in Spa Treatments, and Round-Trip Airport Limo Transfers for $2,000

For example, for $475, you can purchase a 4-night stay at the Excalibur, plus 2 tickets to Tournament of Kings and $400 in dining credits at Camelot Steakhouse.  That could easily cost you ~$900 otherwise.

The deals go live at 1:00 pm Eastern Time tomorrow, April 18, 2018.  There are VERY limited quantities of these packages, so be ready a few minutes before the sale begins!

2.   Introducing New Hyatt Offers

Back in November, we saw Chase release Chase Offers (its version of AMEX Offers).  But they dragged the program to the gallows last month.

Now, via Miles to Memories, folks are seeing similar offers available on the Chase Hyatt card!  You can get easy discounts on purchases you might make anyway, like:

  • Etsy – Get $10 back on a purchase of $40+
  • Hulu – Get $20 back with Hulu Live TV subscription
  • Lowe’s – Get $10 back on a purchase of $50+
  • Stubhub – Get $10 back on a purchase of $100+

The program is set to end on July 31, 2018.  So check your email to see if you have any correspondence from Hyatt!  Or check your offers at this link.

3.   Marriott Limits Earning Elite Credits to 1 Room per Night

Via One Mile at a Time, Marriott is NOT maintaining one of the generous Starwood policies helpful for attaining elite status.

Starwood currently allows you to earn elite night credits for up to 3 rooms per night, as long as the Starwood member pays for all 3 rooms and is staying in one of the rooms.  That makes it much easier for folks to rack up nights towards elite status when traveling with a group.

But on August 1, 2018, Starwood and Marriott will officially be rolled into 1 program.  And you will no longer be able to earn credits for 3 rooms per night.  You can, however, continue to earn redeemable points for up to 3 rooms per night!
