REMINDER: Hyatt points go on sale at 1 PM ET today for as little as 1.08 cents each. Be ready at your device before 1 PM if you want to score one of the limited packages! 

Daily Getaways is a series of daily discounted travel packages sponsored by the US Travel Association that started four weeks ago and runs for three more days. Every weekday at 1 PM ET, a discounted travel package or packages will go on sale, and the best deals sell out in just a few minutes. The best deals tend to be the selling of hotel points at super low prices or the purchasing of underpriced certificates for hotel stays and car rentals.

Here’s the overview of the fifth and final week (pictured above). The best deal for the most people this week will probably be the sale of Hyatt points on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s deals are discounted stay packages of Hyatt Points:

You can buy one of each package, and four total across all types of packages, but I can’t imagine a human will be quick enough to get one of each package before each size sells out (and I imagine they’ll sell out very quickly since there are so few on sale).

Each package has some name like “2 Nights in a Hyatt Premium Hotel for $260” or “2 Nights in an Elite Hyatt Hotel For $330.” Ignore those name. You are simply buying a quantity of Hyatt points that you can use for anything Hyatt points can be used for.

Hyatt hotels are divided into seven categories to determine their award prices. Free nights range from 5,000 to 30,000 points per night. Club rooms are about 30% more and suites are about 60% more.

At the cheapest price of 1.04 cents per point, the categories range from $52 to $312.

Whether these are good deals depends on the retail price of the hotel you want, your subjective value of the room, and whether you can get it on Priceline for cheaper. Also keep in mind that Free Nights will not incur taxes, which are often another 10% on top of the list price for paid nights.

I assume Tuesday’s deal will also be useful for those who rent cars often, but I won’t pretend to know much about the loyalty program.

You are limited to purchasing one type of each package, and three total across all types.

Again, the packages have fancy names but are just amounts of Hertz points for differing tiers of cars. Here’s Hertz’s award chart–check it out yourself to see if buying one of these packages makes sense for your situation. I imagine in expensive car rental markets (think Hawaii, New York City, etc.) the packages could prove especially good value.

Just note that you’d be redeeming points for these cars which means you still have to pay taxes/fees (unlike other Daily Getaways car rental certificates that have been on sale this year that lower the base fare and therefore the percentage amount of tax as well).

Today’s deals are extremely specific. If you like Fairmont hotels and aren’t otherwise planning to use hotel points in trips to those destinations, then check out the packages for six nights at a Hawaiian Fairmont resort or three nights at the Fairmont San Francisco.

There are only 10 of these packages available for each destination, however.

And that’s a wrap folks! I will post once more on Wednesday as a reminder to be ready for the Hyatt point sale, but aside from that, this is the last time you’ll hear from me on Daily Getaways this year. Hope you scored something that fits your travel plans!
