This is the final week of Daily Getaways for the year!


Monday July 8

*1-Week Hertz Standard Vehicle ($280 for 5,000 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards)

*1-Week Hertz Prestige Collection ($720 for 15,000 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards)

*Weekend Hertz Prestige Collection ($430 for 9,000 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards)


In all of these cases, you will be purchasing points… and with the upcoming reward redemption point increase on October 1 of this year, I do not want to have so many Hertz points sitting around as I don’t think I can use them all before then.


Tuesday July 9

*100,000 Hilton Points ($550)

*150,000 Hilton Points ($825)

*250,000 Hilton Points ($1,375)


I looked into booking Hilton on points for my upcoming Australia trip to Brisbane and Cairns, but the rooms were running 64,000+ points per night. I’d rather pay cash at ~300AUD. If you have upcoming travel plans be sure to check out the Hilton rates though!


Wednesday July 10

*Stay and Play at Circus Circus ($140 including a 3-night stay in a standard room in the West Tower at Circus Circus Las Vegas, breakfast and dinner for 2 and the buffet, a $75 voucher for The Steak House restaurant, and 1-day passes for 2 to the Adventuredome Theme Park)

*Stay, Play, and Relax at ARIA ($1,625 including a 3-night stay in a 1-bedroom suite in the Sky Suites at ARIA Las Vegas, dinner for 2 at Sage, Sirio Ristorante, AMERICAN FIST, Julian Serrano, or Jean Georges Steakhouse, spa treatments for 2 at The Spa at ARIA, 2 VIP tickets to Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil, and round-trip airport limo transfers)

*Getaway for 4 to Mandalay Bay ($1,650 including 2 nights in a 2-bedroom suite at Mandalay Bar, 4 tickets fo Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil, 2 dinners for 4 at your choice of Mandalay Bay restaurants, 4 tickets to Shark Reef Aquarium, 4 VIP access passes to the Foundation Room atom Mandalay Bay, and round trip airport limo transfers)

*A Suite and a Show at Bellagio ($1,375 including 2 nights in a Bellagio Suite, 2 tickets to a performance of O by Cirque du Soleil and a dinner package including a prix five menu, 2 spa treatments, and round trip airport limo transfers)

*VIP Getaway at HOTEL32 ($825 including a 2-night stay in a one-bedroom Penthouse Suite at HOTEL32, $150 dining credit at select Monte Carlo restaurants, VIP lounge check-in, and round trip airport limo transfers)


If I had 3 other people interested, I would definitely want to try for the Mandalay Bay package. Split 4 ways it would make a great girls weekend in Las Vegas! It is unlikely that I would be able to get 3 of my friends to commit with this short of notice though, so it probably won’t happen. I also seriously see the value in the Bellagio package. I stayed there earlier this year with my mom on my first trip to Vegas, and we had a great time. The hotel was beautiful and O was fantastic… and just the room and show put together cost almost as much as the package; so if you were thinking about staying at the Bellagio sometime soon and seeing O, there is a ton of extra value in the package deal.


Thursday July 11

*2-nights in a Hyatt Premium Hotel ($260 for 24,000 points)

*2-nights in a Hyatt Top Hotel ($415 for 36,000 points)

*3-nights in a Hyatt Suite ($775 for 69,000 points)

*2-nights in an Elite Hyatt Hotel ($330 for 30,000 points)


lot of people are going to be going for these Hyatt points, so with the limited quantities available, it is going to be very difficult to get a hold of a package. For my 2 big upcoming trips, I won’t have a use for Hyatt points, but I would love to have some (current Hyatt balance = 0) to give me more options in my hotel stays for other future, unplanned trips. So I, like everyone else, will be trying to get my hands on Hyatt points.


Friday July 12

*3-Nights at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess ($675)

*6-Night Hawaii Vacation ($1,800 will get you 6 1-night “Ovation Rewards” certificates that can get you up to 6 nights at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui, or The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii. Certificates do not need to be used consecutively.)


Not interested in either of these locations at this time.
