    Once-in-a-Lifetime Experiences, Incredible Values

    Once again in a unique five week promotion through a specially created website, DailyGetaways.com, over 20 of America’s top travel brands will come together to provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences and tremendous values unavailable anywhere else. ​

    Daily Getaways, a promotion of the U.S. Travel Association and American Express, will run for a third time in the spring of 2012. Aimed at stimulating travel in time for summer, the promotion will once again offer incredible deals in limited quantities at up to 60 percent off product from leading travel companies. The promotion will begin with a preview period the week of April 2, 2012 and will officially open on April 9, 2012.​

    Any U.S. resident 18 or older with a major credit card will be able to purchase from the inventory of specially priced travel products offered by 25 leading travel companies related to destinations, hotels, airlines, rental cars, attractions and theme parks, dining, shopping, and gaming locales among others.​

    In 2011, there were 30 participating companies, IIRC.

    The only disappointing aspect is that the US airways hotel transfer bonus promotion ends March 31, before the points from Discover America are bound to come in! Last year, I managed to get upwards of 130 K DM at around 0.7 CPM courtesy this promotion. Hopefully, US will extend their promotion by a month!

    Yeah last year the promos were later on in the year, with Discover America happening in April, followed by the US transfer bonus -- even though that one was different as it was based on whether you had a US card and/or elite status.

    IMO best approach is to hoard on the hotel points, that's a no-brainer. Then whatever promo comes, take advantage of it then. If it's US and you can get some good Star Alliance miles then so be it. :)
