Daily Getaways - anyone else purchase travel / points?
« on: April 10, 2018, 10:40:33 AM »
The annual Daily Getaways promo just started yesterday! Does anyone else buy travel / points from there?

My favourite is buying cheap Choice hotel points (Comfort Inn/Quality Inn) which I then use to book hotel rooms. Hotels end up costing me $40-60/night which is great when I run out of hotel points gathered through credit cards. Gearing up for Choice points to go on sale at 1pm Eastern in 20 mins! I can buy them just as the clock strikes one :)

Camp Mustache Canada 2017 was everything I dreamed of and more. Super excited that Camp Mustache Canada 2018 is now a thing!

Looks like a slight discount, but not the 50% they're claiming... For instance, "The Points Guy" values Hilton points at $.06 each, which would mean 250,000 points would be worth $1500 - they are selling them for $1250, a 16% discount. Still, could be decent if you need to top off, thanks for sharing!
