Daily Getaways Week 5: Discounted Hyatt Points and Caesars Entertainment Stays

May 7, 2018

Welcome to the final week of Daily Getaways — the annual five-week-long travel discount extravaganza hosted by the US Travel Association. Offers this week include discounted Caesars Entertainment stays and Hyatt points. Plus, there’s still some good deals on IHG and Wyndham points still available.

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).

May 8: Hyatt Point Packages

2. 30,000 World of Hyatt points for $330
3. 40,000 World of Hyatt points for $415

Points Cost Cents per Point Available Deals

30,000 $330 1.10 54
40,000 $415 1.04 30
72,000 $775 1.08 25

Last, but certainly not least, is one of the best deals of the five-week promotion. You can buy Hyatt points starting at just 1.04 cents. That’s an incredible deal since TPG values Hyatt points at 1.8 cents each.

You can only buy one package of each of the four packages. That means that you’re going to have to act quickly to snag all four before they sell out — or work with friends or co-workers to divide and conquer. In total, you can snag 166,000 total Hyatt points for $1,780 for a blended purchase rate 1.07 cents per point.

Points Deals Still Available

IHG Points

  1. 8,500 IHG Rewards Club points for $50
  2. 15,000 IHG Rewards Club points for $89
  3. 25,000 IHG Rewards Club points for $149
  4. 50,000 IHG Rewards Club points for $290
  5. 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points for $580
  6. 130,000 IHG Rewards Club points for $749
Points Cost Cents per Point
8,500 $50 0.59
15,000 $89 0.59
25,000 $149 0.60
50,000 $290 0.58
100,000 $580 0.58
130,000 $749 0.58

IHG has devalued its program noticeably during the past year, dropping TPG’s valuation of IHG points to 0.6 cents. Still, this could be a good deal for those that can maximize PointBreaks promotions and find good IHG redemptions. For those with the IHG Rewards Club Premier Card, you can score four-night stays for as little as 15,000 points — before welcome points or rebates. When buying points at 0.58 cents each, that’s a cost of less than $22 per night!

15,000 Wyndham Points / One Free Night

  • Cost: $175
  • Description: 15,000 points valid for up to 1 night at any Wyndham Rewards property.
  • Restrictions: No more than 2 sets of points are permitted per Wyndham Rewards member number.

This package is being sold as “1 Night at any Wyndham Rewards Property,” but you’re actually purchasing 15,000 Wyndham points. Since May 2015, Wyndham has had a flat rate for award nights at 15,000 points per night. Alternatively, you can redeem 3,000 points for a “GO FAST” points and cash booking.

At $175 per award night, you’re going to need to find a high-end Wyndham property to make this a good deal. If you can utilize a good redemption option, purchasing two nights through Daily Getaways can be a good supplement to the two nights you can get for free through the Wyndham Rewards Visa Card sign-up bonus.
