My personal take
- I don’t understand why so many Las Vegas packages! I honestly have zero interest in them, but I am sure others will find value them.
- In the past, Choice points packages were hard to get because lots people buy them and transfer the points to Southwest for the companion pass. Now that hotel points transferred no longer counts towards the companion pass, perhaps less people will be interested in these packages. I purchased these packages three years ago for our first trip to the Bahamas. We stayed at the Comfort Suites just outside Atlantis resort. It gave us full access to the water parks at Atlantis and we saved a bundle!
- Hilton points purchased through daily getaway do not count towards Hilton’s own annual limit on purchasing points. Hilton also offers 5th night free on award redemptions. If you have expensive or lots of Hilton stay coming up, these packages might be worth considering. You are essentially buying the points as low as 0.48 cents per point, cheaper than points purchased directly from Hilton.
- The Marriott gift cards represent solid saving for your stay at Marriott hotels. All you need to do is to tell the front desk that you want to use gift card to pay at checkout, and present the gift cards then.
- Hyatt packages are essentially discounted Hyatt points. There are very few packages available and they were the hardest to get in the past few years. I don’t think I would even try this year!
