The Daily Getaways Promotions Start on May 6th!

I’ve got to be honest. The Daily Getaways promotion is one that I’m always interested in. It’s a great chance to pick up some great travel deals that you won’t see anywhere else. For 10 years, the U.S. Travel Association has been running this fundraiser that features daily deals from many of the major travel companies.

This year, for the 10th Anniversary, the Daily Getaways deals are returning with over 20 top companies signing on. New deals will be released at 1PM EST on every weekday from May 6th to June 4th but there are also going to be a few added things during this year’s promotion. The biggest addition is that for each deal purchased, customers can opt-in to receive an entry to win a $10,000 custom trip to a U.S. destination of their choice. As we always say with sweepstakes, you gotta be in it to win it.

Many blogs cover the Daily Getaways in depth and try to determine if the offer that day is a good deal or not. We’re of the opinion that it’s up to each individual to determine if a deal is good or not because these offers are the ultimate Your Mileage May Vary situation. I’ve purchased things from Daily Getaways the last couple of years but each of those purchases was for a specific situation.

Starting today, you can preview the offers that will be on sale for the first three weeks of the promotion at http://www.dailygetaways.com/

Citi Prestige Premium Rental Car Benefits

While the American Express Platinum cards are the standard for providing travel benefits, you’re eligible for several of the same perks if you have a premier card from a different bank. Since I canceled my Platinum card, I’ve been looking to keep as many of the benefits I had previously with the cards I still have. The Citi Prestige card provides some of the same benefits and some that AMEX doesn’t.

With the Citi Prestige, you get extra benefits with several rental car companies. Here’s a list of the benefits and how to sign up for them.
