I hope everyone has been enjoying the Daily Getaways (or at least tolerating them!)  Don’t worry if you hate them – this is the last week so before too long you won’t have to see any more about them until 2017! 🙂

This week only has 3 days of offers


First of all, let’s start with the easy ones.

If you’ve been following along with my analysis of Daily Getaways, you probably know that I do NOT recommend any of the Las Vegas themed deals.  IMO there are FAR better ways to get “luxury” hotels at a fraction of the cost

Tuesday’s deal on Marriott e-gift certificates is also pretty straightforward.  If you have a pattern of many stays at Marriott hotels, and are paying cash, then getting an extra 20% off on those stays is probably a good idea.  The downside to locking this in is that unless you KNOW you’re staying at Marriott, having these e-gift certificates might make you stay at a Marriott when there are cheaper non-Marriott options available.  I looked through the terms and conditions of the Marriott card and it did appear you did not have to use them all at once (unlike the Orbitz deal from a few weeks ago)

The Monday Daily Getaways – 2 deals on Avis

Today’s deal is about Avis and there are 2 separate dealsavislogo

One is a one day car rental for $30, and you can buy up to 7 of them.  This can definitely be under the price for a daily car rental in some areas, but I think you would still be better off with Autoslash.  I’ve used Autoslash several times before and it can regularly save well over 50% on a car rental

The other deal today is for Avis Chairman’s Club membership for a year.  These cost $1,115 and there are only 15 packages available.  These have been available every year that there has been a Daily Getaways, and from what I’ve seen, they’ve always gone FAST!  So if you want one of these, I’d be ready on the computer at 1PM Eastern sharp!

Now, I don’t think this is the type of deal for me ($1,115 is a LOT) but if you are a frequent traveler, it may be something to consider. Chairman’s Club is an invite-only level of membership with no published qualifications.  Here is the Flyertalk thread on the levels of Avis membership .

Chairman’s Club offers, among other things

  • Free upgrade to the “best car” on the lot (with some exceptions) (SEE ALSO: Why you’re foolish to rent a “standard” car)
  • They will pick you up and deliver you back to the airport terminal
  • They will fuel you up at the market price so you don’t have to get gas on your way back

If you’ve had Avis Chairman’s Club before, I’d love to hear your experience on how it went for you and if it was worth it
