Today is the last day of the 2014 Daily Getaways! For those who are just tuning in, different travel packages and getaways have been offered every weekday from May 19 though June 20, 2014. The Daily Getaways offered by American Express and the US Travel Association has Fairmont Hotels packages on sale today, and the sale starts at 1pm EST.
For both of these packages, using any American Express card to purchase drops your price 10% off.
Friday, June 20:
Fairmont Hawaii package – You get Ovation Rewards certificates good for six nights + taxes in either a suite at the Fairmont Kea Lani (in Maui) including breakfast buffet for two at the Kea Lani Restaurant or In-Room dining (max of $37.75 per person per day), or in a standard room at the Fairmont Orchid (on the Big Island) that includes breakfast for two at the hotel’s Signature Breakfast Buffet.
Package cost – $1980 ($1782 using AMEX to purchase). There are 12 available.
Entering a sample date of August 9, 2014, the best available rate that Fairmont’s website offered for the Kea Lani property was $569, not including breakfast which is $35 per person. Assuming double occupancy, multiply breakfast and rate by six nights and the total comes to over $3834, not including tax!
Using the same sample date for the Fairmont Orchid, the best available rate on Fairmont’s website came to $359, not including breakfast which is $32 per person. Figuring on two people, multiplied by six nights, the total would be $2538 not including tax.
Fairmont Scottsdale package – You get Ovation Rewards certificates good for three nights in at standard room at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, including breakfast for two in the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant.
Package cost – $675 ($607.50 using AMEX to purchase). There are 10 available.
Using our sample date of August 9, the best available rate on Fairmont’s website for their Scottsdale property was $169, not including breakfast which is $22 per person. Multiplied by three nights, the total for breakfast and room for two comes to $639, excluding tax.
These packages are a good value, and the terms & conditions say there are no blackout dates. There is also no expiration date on the certificates! The certificates can be combined to redeem all at once, or be used individually. I might try to snag one of the Hawaii packages. The only difficulty is actually purchasing one since they’ll go quickly.
If you’re interested in one of the packages today, click on the link above for the package you want before 1pm EST and have your credit card ready (Amex to save an extra 10%) for when the sale goes live.
