Few deals worth it
The deals below are excellent but the the number of packages available are so small that they are nearly impossible to get. The two deals I review are so spectacular it’s worth giving it a try you never know. On the dates listed below the deals go on sale at 12PM CT. When the deals become active on their respective dates you must be ready to act immediately.
In the past when I’ve tried to get deals I work with two computers refreshing the screens repeatedly. I’ve gotten the Marriott cards every time. I’ve never gotten the Hyatt deal which sells out in seconds.
As always, please read all the descriptions, redemption rules and terms and conditions carefully before you consider buying any package. There are black out dates and other restrictions for all packages.
Marriott Gift cards 20% off May 3
I buy these most years to stay at the Cosmopolitan in Vegas which is part of the Marriott Autograph collection. You still earn Marriott points (for what they’re worth) for your stay when you pay with a gift card. Unfortunately even though Marriott bought Starwood you cannot use their gift cards at any Starwood properties.
The following Marriott Hotel Brands DO NOT accept Marriott or The Ritz-Carlton GiftCards: Protea Hotels by Marriott®, St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection®, W®, Westin®, Le Méridien®, Sheraton®, Tribute Portfolio™, Four Points® by Sheraton, Aloft®, Element®, Design Hotels™
Hyatt points packages May 8
Hyatt points are extremely valuable. A night at the Park Hyatt NYC is generally around $1,000 per night plus tax or 30,000 points. A comparable room through Hilton (Waldorf) or Marriott (Ritz Carlton) might cost 95,000 points. Here’s the award chart for Hyatt properties. These packages sell out in about a second.
If you don’t already have a World of Hyatt account set one up now. You will need an account number to deposit the points into if you’re lucky enough to get a package.
