 Today is the fifth day of the first week of five weeks of discounted travel packages from the US Travel Association called Daily Getaways. Every weekday at 1 PM ET, a discounted travel package or packages will go on sale and will often sell out in a few minutes. The morning of interesting deals, I’ll have a full write up.

Today only, you can buy 15,000 Wyndham points for $175. Two years ago Wyndham changed its rewards program, so that all hotels cost 15,000 points per night with no blackouts. Most programs vary the number of points needed for a free night based on the average cost of a hotel.

Today’s deal is:

You can buy two packages per Wyndham account. I’m sure there is a way to get longer stays out of this deal, either by opening multiple Wyndham accounts or by buying two packages in your account and two in your spouse’s and then booking four consecutive nights with the points.

Wyndham Basics

Wyndham points can be used at over 25,000 homes, condos, and hotels with the following brand names:

Wyndham properties include some all inclusive properties where your free night also includes free food and booze.

Free Nights

Fifteen thousand points gets you a free night at any Wyndham hotel with no blackouts. That means if a standard room is for sale, you can book it for 15,000 points right on by clicking Redeem Wyndham Rewards when you search.

Go Fast (Cash & Points Awards)

Wyndham’s cash and points awards cost 3,000 points plus an amount of cash that varies by property. These rewards are not guaranteed to be available like the free night awards.

Good Deal?

There are many Wyndham hotels that cost more than $150 per night, like the Hotel Henri Wyndham in New York City over New Year’s Eve.

If you value a Wyndham stay at more than $150 per night, this Daily Getaway is for you. Here are all the Wyndham hotels organized by location— check them out to see if there are any you’d value at more than $150 per night.

My Plan

I’m not purchasing this Daily Getaway. I usually book Airbnb’s when I’m travel, and if I was staying in a hotel, paying $175 would not be likely. Especially if I weren’t earning any hotel rewards, which you don’t with this certificate.

Like every chance to buy miles or points, my advice here is to only buy if you have an immediate, high value use for the miles or points. I do not. I don’t like to exchange cash for future undefined travel.

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. The sale starts at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT. Keep refreshing the deal page until you see the BUY NOW button replace the SEE DETAILS button.

This is what happens if you try to purchase something when 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.
