U.S. Travel Association's Daily Getaways 2016

I am actually excited for this years deals, cause I could really use the Marriott and Choice deals, I didn't buy anything last year for the first time.

2 weeks are up

Thank you, yuel. Glad that they'll be back. They were awfully slim last year, IMO. Probably seemed that way because they just didn't have what I was looking for. Where did you see who will be participating?

Can't wait to sit here for half an hour refreshing my browser over and over again to get nothing in the end.

I have a question on choice points. Assuming that they are offered and assuming that I get in on a deal, if I max out my account by buying up to my allowed yearly limit from choice (there is a promotion right now I want to buy points with) if I win daily giveaways, will they still be credited?

I thought I read from the terms and conditions of choice that you can only buy or be gifted up to the yearly amount which varies from IHG which i interpreted to say that i can buy my 60k and also receive as a gift 60k. So where does this leave daily getaways?

Can i still buy my max on each and still get the daily getaways?

At least with ihg they did not count the daily getaways as part of the yearly limit

Oh thats good to know! Thanks.

I just don't want to waste money if one is not gonna count. Might have to take a chance with choice but definitely thanks for the heads up on the iHG!

I never had any issues buying hundreds of thousands HH points in many previous Daily Getaways. The yearly maximum only applies if you buy points from HH directly.
