Daily Getaways sales return July 18, 2022

U.S. Travel Association Daily Getaways hotel points and stay deals return on July 18, 2022. A preview of sales will post on July 11. U.S. Travel Association is the organization that promotes the USA as a travel destination for the world.

  • July 11, 2022 – Daily Getaways preview of sales
  • July 18, 2022 – First week of sales. One brand sale (e.g. Hilton points) each Mon-Fri weekday; usually 5 or 6 weeks of daily sales.

Daily Getaways is a travel brands promotion for participating companies like Best Western, Choice Hotels, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott and other brands like car rental companies, Universal Studios, Omni Hotels and Las Vegas casino resorts.

The real value for points and miles travelers is the opportunity to buy hotel points for some brands with Best Western Rewards, Choice Privileges and World of Hyatt points typically offered at the lowest prices available for the year. Other brands like Hilton, IHG and Marriott typically offer large numbers of points or gift cards at rates matching their own best offers of the year.

Another reason why Daily Getaways is valuable for travelers who typically buy hotel points from one or more hotel loyalty programs is points purchases from Daily Getaways are not counted toward the annual purchase limit for member’s buying points through the brand’s own hotel loyalty program. 

Daily Getaways is my main event of the year for picking up loads of inexpensive hotel points.

  1. It’s been a few years since I’ve seen excellent values redeeming Best Western points. Redemption prices seem to follow the cash price. Do you disagree?

    Choice points sometimes offer exceptional value. Hyatt points are great but your odds of success on these sales are virtually zero.

  2. I purchased 50,000 Best Western Rewards points for $275 last year during Daily Getaways. There are a limited number of hotels where I see savings about $30 per night.

    Best Western Rewards points were far more valuable when there were plenty of hotels offering suites for standard reward prices. Hotels charge more points for upgraded rooms now. I have not seen any suites offered on points in the past couple of years.

    I know there will be a place where I find value with BWR points, but at this time I have no plans for redeeming my 75,000 BWR points. Most hotels I check only show about $20 per night savings using points based on the $5.50 per 1,000 points price I paid.

  3. Thanks, Ric. That agrees with my experience. I don’t plan to buy any more Best Western points. Given the meager savings, I prefer the flexibility of cash.

    When the Daily Getaways sale approaches you should expand your BWR analysis into a post recommending against points purchase.
