Daily Getaways released their annual preview list today. To recap, Daily Getaways is an annual promotion that releases limited quantities of discounted hotel points and travel packages daily.
One big bummer: no American Express Discount this year. There are a few packages I might still consider, but the $25 for $50 (up to 3) Alamo Rent a Car Certificates on April 27 is the absolute no-brainer.
Why am I so excited about Alamo? Because I tested the certificates last year. I was expecting that the 50% off, since you put the certificate in the “coupon code” box, would over-ride any other programs…but I was wrong.
But wait, there’s more. I called in my Las Vegas rental last year and the Mid-Size SUV for 8 days would have been $241 after taxes. Using 3 certificates that cost $67.50, the rental cost $57, most of which was taxes. Turns out any of the percentage taxes also go down since the daily getaway certificates count as coupons. I should have saved $82.50 but I actually saved $117!
This year I’ll buy the certificates and book the $9.99 drive out of Florida deal. Making an already awesome deal obscene.
