Did anyone get in on the Daily Getaway Deal today? You could buy a limited number of either 100,000, 150,000, or 250,000 points for a price from $550 to $1,300. If you used the American Express card, you saved an additional 10%. As I expected, with the limited number, less than 100, I was locked out of the deal when it opened. I kept clicking all 3 offers, but none were available, so they said. Surprisingly, 6 minutes after the deal opened, I clicked on the 250,000 and it went to the checkout screen. Supposedly, the points will hit my HH account in 2-4 weeks. I did some rough calculations for Hilton's here in Houston, and that deal will save me between 15% and 62%. That is based on using points plus cash at the hotels that allow it. The points ended up costing .004946 per point, less than 1/2 cent per point. Plus, I don't have to spend $80,000 on my Surpass card to get similar number of points.
