The link works when I clicked on it
I donít expect to see them on offer until the second half of this year. And even that may turn out to be wishful thinking in part.

I just clicked on the OP's link and got the same thing as Yuel. No more 404 Pantheon error page.

This link works and nothing about a postponement, although it lists last year's participants:

Yes, but until a couple of days ago that page had a countdown clock, counting down to the preview on April 20th, then sales starting on April 27th. The countdown page is gone, so clearly they have pulled the sales. Really disappointing, but not surprising.

Perhaps they are renegotiating deals better suited towards the current climate of covid-19. The only thing it would make sense for them to even attempt to sell is hotel points imo. I could see hotels stepping up to offer deals which brings a little revenue in.

The website is so poorly designed, that without some sort of bot, I have never been able to get any of the good deals. I expect it to be the usual waste of time, and the good deals gone in milliseconds.

This could be the year with less competition and better deals. Very hard to predict.

I asked and here was the response from [email protected]

Thank you for your email and interest in Daily Getaways. Due to the current pandemic we have decided to postpone Daily Getaways until later in the year. We will be announcing a new set of dates in the coming weeks. We’d be happy to add you to our list for future updates.
Stay safe, stay healthy,
Daily Getaways

I have to assume it will be the year with less demand for the offers. Americans seem set to have way less money for discretionary expenses this year than last year. While having less money makes people into more eager bargain hunters for greater discounts, travel is considered more of a disposable and unnecessary luxury than other kinds of entertainment goods and services for use around the home and that last longer than a vacation.

Better deals? I am inclined to act as if cash will provide the best deals this year and next. I would rather retain cash as my currency rather than exchange cash to get locked into a restricted currency issued and managed by financially struggling travel service providers.

I really wished this didnít get postponed. I might of actually been able to buy a Hyatt package this year without selling out in 12 seconds.

Doubt it.
