Welcome to week 4 of Daily Getaways — the annual five-week-long travel discount extravaganza hosted by the US Travel Association. Offers this week include discounted Fairmont hotel stays, Las Vegas packages, Orbitz gift card, Marriott gift cards and Las Vegas suites.

Each deal will go live at 1:00pm ET, so make sure that you set your alarm a few minutes earlier than that if you’re really interested in snagging a deal. Based on the Daily Getaways purchases I made in week one, these purchases code as travel. So, make sure to use a credit card that has a category bonus for general travel such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x Ultimate Rewards points) or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x points).

Let’s dive into the details to see which offers you might be interested in this week:

April 30: Fairmont Hotel Stays

1. 2-night stay at Fairmont Austin, Texas

  • Cost: $608
  • Description: Two Ovation Rewards certificates each redeemable at Fairmont Austin for a one-night stay for two in a Standard room with breakfast for two the following morning at the resort’s all-day restaurant. Taxes, gratuities and resort fees are included. No expiration date.
  • Restrictions: “Reservations are based on last room availability in the room category indicated at participating hotels (some exceptions may apply). Some restrictions may apply to special event dates.”
  • Number available: 20

2. 4-night stay at Fairmont Grand Del Mar

  • Cost: $2,000
  • Description: Four Ovation Rewards certificates each redeemable at Fairmont Grand Del Mar for a one-night stay for two in a Standard room with breakfast for two the following morning at the resort’s all-day restaurant. Taxes, gratuities and resort fees are included. No expiration date.
  • Restrictions: “Reservations are based on last room availability in the room category indicated at participating hotels (some exceptions may apply). Some restrictions may apply to special event dates.”
  • Number available: 10

The lack of an expiration date and the all-inclusive nature make these somewhat tempting. There are no blackout dates listed for either but the “some restrictions may apply to special event dates” probably mean that you won’t be able to use these in Austin during SXSW.

May 1: Las Vegas Packages

1. Stay and Play at Circus Circus

  • Cost: $150
  • Description: Three nights at Circus Circus, including dining and passes to the Adventuredome Theme Park, for two people. Includes resort fees.
  • Restrictions: Must be used by December 30, 2018. “Offer is subject to promotional availability. This offer is non-transferable,  subject to availability, may not be combined with any other MGM Resorts International promotion, and is not available to groups or persons attending meetings or conventions.”
  • Number available: 8

  • Number available: 8

4. Escape for 2 to Park MGM

5. Skyline Marquee Suite at MGM Grand

  • Cost: $1,545
  • Description: Two nights in a Marquee Suite at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, massages, tickets for KA and dinner, for two people.
  • Restrictions: Must use by December 30, 2018. Subject to availability & no extensions to expiration date.
  • Number available: 8

Always be wary of “subject to availability” and “special events” restrictions. However, if you can book far enough out and have enough flexibility to make alternative dates work, some of these packages could make for an easy and fun Vegas getaway.

May 2: Orbitz Hotel Gift Card

  • Description: $1,000 Hotel Promo Code for $650
  • Expiration: Book by March 15, 2019, and stay by December 31, 2019.
  • Quantity available: 60
  • Maximum purchase: 1

This is always a deal that catches a lot of attention. After all, who doesn’t want to save $350 on a hotel stay? And, as always, these are sure to sell out quickly. However, beware of the restrictions before you buy: All $1,000 with the code must be applied to one booking; you can’t use any residual value toward future bookings. Also, if you change or cancel the hotel stay, you lose the entire value of the voucher.

May 3: 20% Off Marriott Gift Cards

  1. $100 Marriott eGiftCard for $80 (1,070 available, max purchase: 5)
  2. $250 Marriott eGiftCard for $200 (252 available, max purchase: 2)
  3. $500 Marriott eGiftCard for $400 (200 available, max purchase: 2)

This deal is just what it seems: a 20% discount on Marriott gift cards. Plus, these gift cards don’t expire. So, this is a pretty great deal for those who stay at Marriott hotels.

A few caveats though: gift cards can’t be used on prepaid stays. Also, the following Marriott Hotel Brands do not accept Marriott GiftCards: Protea Hotels by Marriott, Marriott Executive Apartments, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, W, Westin, Le Méridien, Sheraton, Tribute Portfolio, Four Points by Sheraton, Aloft, Element, Design Hotels.

May 4: Las Vegas Suites

1. Three Nights in a Suite at The Venetian

  • Cost: $650
  • Description: Certificate for three nights in a Piazza Suite at The Venetian, Las Vegas.
  • Restrictions: Must use by March 31, 2019. “Blackout dates may apply, subject to suite availability.”
  • Number available: 30

2. Three Nights in a Suite at The Palazzo

  • Cost: $850
  • Description: Certificate redeemable for three nights in a Siena Suite at The Palazzo, Las Vegas.
  • Restrictions: Must use by March 31, 2019. “Blackout dates may apply, subject to suite availability.”
  • Number available: 20

Again, always be wary of deals that have unlisted blackout dates. But, if you’ve got a flexible enough travel schedule and want to score a relatively-cheap Vegas suite stay, these could be a nice way of booking one.
