Discover America: Daily Getaways 2013 from 6/10 to 7/12

I got impatient and contacted the US Travel Association.

According to the Sr. Director, Program and Marketing Services, Daily Getaways will be back again this Spring.

She says the program will start in June this time and to look for an email ( if you signed up to receive emails) detailing the dates of the program in 2 weeks!!!

I have an AMEX card this time

Agreed, June is not ideal. I just redeemed some points for a trip to Rome June 6th. I may have to make a deal with the wife to be around some internet at 8pm, Lol. I fared pretty well last year with the Wyndham points, but I had fast internet and some up. I hope it will be a good month. I know I wont be going for Hilton points this time.

Nice! I am burning some Hilton points due to the devaluation. I could only string together 4 nights though so we will stay at the St Regis the last night. I wonder what kind of points will be offered. Starpoints?

Me, too. June would be very bad. I'm on the road most of the month.

Also, I would think that if the purpose of the program is to promote domestic tourism -- for which summer is the biggest season -- it makes sense to have the promo early in the spring so folks can plan their vacations. This doesn't seem like a "last minute" travel promotion.

I am a conspiracy theorist, I wouldn't doubt that the deal was moved for some reason. Amex no longer apart of it, changes to point offering due to changes to the reward charts in many hotels. I think what would be interesting is to see if they up the points ante with the Hilton devaluation.

Grrrrr, it's a month+ later than in the past. Why are they promoting travel after summer season begins?! IIRC, the previews began first week of May.

Silly me, I was counting on this for a May 27 1-night stay in Perth for OzFest.

Yeah, the timing sucks. It will already be the summer travel season and -- like many Flyertalkers -- I'll be travelling during many (most?) of those days!

I guess I'll have to figure out the days where they're offering something I want, deal with the time zone issue, and try to get a find a fast internet connection.

It amazes me that they want to wait until summer to do this.

Too bad it was not this month. It would have been nice to buy some hotel pts and transfer to SWA to get companion pass. I may only need to transfer a small amount of hotel pts to make CP.

I trust the offerings will be decent this year.
