Today is the fourth day of the second week of five weeks of discounted travel packages sponsored by the US Travel Association and American Express called Daily Getaways.

Every weekday at 1 PM ET, a discounted travel package or packages will go on sale and will usually sell out in a few minutes. Some of the offers will be awesome; some will be duds. Today’s is somewhere in between. It’s a good deal for the right person.

Today’s deal is discounted two-night stays in suites at the Venetian and Palazzo in Las Vegas.

How can you get in on the deal?

All Daily Getaways packages are discounted. And you get an additional 10% off each sale price by paying with an American Express, so that’s a no-brainer, and I’ll always quote prices after the American Express discount.

Today prices range from $495 for a two night stay in the 1,400-square-foot Piazza View Suite at the Venetian to $630 for a two night stay in the 1,280-square foot Siena Suite at Palazzo.

There are 42 Palazzo packages and 50 Venetian packages for sale.

For these deals: “Within 10 days of purchase, you will receive a certificate via email to the email address provided at purchase. This certificate will provide instructions on who to contact to book your stay.”

I priced out the first weekend of March Madness 2014, which is not blacked out, and both Suites went for well above today’s price.

Venetian Piazza Suite about $900 after Resort Fee
Palazzo Siena Suite over $1,300 after Resort Fee

The bottom line is that these are substantial discounts, especially on the Palazzo Siena Suite, off of the retail prices. But it’s still $495 or $630 for two nights hotel in Las Vegas, where you can get a mid-week, mid-strip room for $40 per night.

Purchasing the Packages

To maximize your chances of getting in on the deal, I recommend using a site like to figure out the official time. This year’s sales have all started on time to the second. Keep refreshing for the best chance.

This is what happens if you try to purchase something where all quantities are already in someone’s cart.

This doesn’t mean the deal is sold out. If someone doesn’t complete his purchase, that quantity will immediately become available for someone else. Keep checking until the dreaded “Sold Out” appears.

I will be by my computer at 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST / 7 AM HST / (2 PM in Buenos Aires) to check out how these deals are selling. Do you plan to buy them? Post your successful or failed attempt in the comments, so we can gauge how quick you had to be to snag a deal.
