Daily Getaways is a promotion offered every year for 5 weeks by the US Travel Association.

Each day, there’s a different deal for discounts on travel, like hotel points, vacation packages, and theme park tickets.

With today’s deal, you can buy deeply discounted IHG hotel points, from ~0.57 cents per point to 0.6 cents per point:

  • 15,000 IHG points for $90 (0.6 cents per point)
  • 25,000 IHG points for $150 (0.6 cents per point)
  • 50,000 IHG points for $293 (~0.59 cents per point)
  • 100,000 IHG points for $565 (~0.57 cents per point)

Redeem your points for stays at any IHG hotel, which include Candlewood SuitesCrowne Plaza, EVEN Hotels, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resorts, Hotel IndigoIntercontinental Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites brand hotels.

This could be an excellent bargain if you redeem your points at pricey hotels, or spend 5,000 points a night at PointBreaks hotels.

As always, do the math to make sure you’re getting a good deal.  And remember, you’ll need an IHG loyalty account to redeem the points (it’s free to join!).

@Baqa – I appreciate your comments. The post does say “depending on how you redeem them” and not everyone is comfortable using the IHG cash + points trick.

@John – It’s not a good deal for everyone.

@Bill from Maine – Most deals have sold out very quickly in the past.

@BB @Nick @jay @margy – Thanks for the input!

@Shubhayan Mukherjee – That’s a terrific way to use the points! Enjoy your trip!

I purchased 3 x 100,000 points in this deal. Will redeem them at the InterContinental in Cannes during the Film Festival. Here are my reasons for buying the points:

– Standard room rate normally is about €600-€800. During the Film Festival, it is close to €1500-€2000 per night.

– I can only buy 120,000 points per year. With this promotion, I was able to get 300,000 points plus I can buy more during an IHG sale if I need to.

– I bought the points with my Citi Prestige card, giving me 3x points for travel category. IHG point purchases are through Points.com so only 1x.

– Room booked with points are flexible for date change and cancellation unlike the regular rate. And the Flexible Rate is much higher.

– I get a 10% rebate by being an IHG credit card holder.

For me, this deal makes sense in two scenarios

– Very long stay during points break, so need more than 120,000 points.

– Upcoming stay at a very high end, 55,000-60,000 property for several days.

Daraius and Emily have done a great job with their blog and have given a lot of valuable information. In fact, their information is so good, that I blame Daraius for killing the Emirates First Class with Alaska and stopping multiple Alaska credit card signups with Bank of America at once.

@Baqa – I’m one of the misinformed and I appreciate your taking the time to point out what is obvious to you. This is all new to me and everything sounds so exciting and fun(!) but at the same time, confusing and sometimes overwhelming. So thank you to both you and MMS for sharing your knowledge.

As for @Nick and the other defenders, I can understand your point(s) and respect that. I don’t have a fraction of the knowledge that most of you do, (in regards to this game of points) since I am a total rookie, so please don’t beat up those like Baqa who would point out what is obvious to you.

Thanks everyone. I enjoy reading the comments almost more than the articles. ;o)

@Nick

I said less informed users, not unintelligent. I think it’s fair to say there are a spectrum of users – some of which are newer and less informed. You apparently aren’t one of those. We’re all super impressed.

I believe that all information should be shared when known – and MMS knows everything I posted, and for some reason chose to ignore the most important pieces of information for someone to make an informed choice here.

Your message is heard though – no color commentary or having an opinion other than yours or the author’s, or it is whining. Don’t post things which would help others, because Nick already knew that information anyway. Instead, just delete the bookmark. Criticism is totally undeserved and unnecessary in today’s touchy-feely world. Unless you’re commenting and whining about and criticizing other commentators. Then, it’s totally legit – you don’t even need to post anything helpful!

Thanks for the laugh!

People are here for information. And I don’t speak for anyone else but myself. However, I could care less about your judgments of what is “poor quality”. Where is YOUR blog that you devote hours to every day? What makes YOU the expert that you have the right to judge? And if it’s poor quality (in your opinion), then please move on. You aren’t discouraging anyone else from reading MMS because of your whining.

I think the biggest problem is assuming other readers are unintelligent. I use information from a variety of sources in making my decisions. I can compare the information here with other places and make my own choice.

It is also irrelevant to me if a blogger makes a commission. I have gotten dozens of great tips from this site.

So please don’t treat other readers like they’re stupid by playing the role of the expert. We can evaluate information without your judgments. And if you feel so superior, start your own blog. I’ll be more than happy to respond to what you write on it without acting like I know more than you do.
