Quick Thoughts

The best deal here is for Hyatt points. They’re normally available for 2.4cpp, although that price drops to ~1.85cpp when they go on sale/offer a bonus. Being able to buy them for as low as 1.2cpp can therefore be great value and so these will sell out pretty much immediately.

The Hilton and IHG points deals aren’t notable because they’re going on sale for 0.5cpp and they frequently go on sale for that price anyway. Having said that, I’m planning on stocking up on IHG points because for whatever reason the Points.com website that normally sells IHG points always glitches and so I can never get an order completed by them.

The Choice Privileges deals are better value than IHG and Hilton because 0.52-0.6cpp is less than you can normally buy them for and their Reasonable Redemption Value is 0.68cpp. The Wyndham Rewards offer on the other hand is poor value. 1.17cpp isn’t a great deal and their points frequently go on sale for much less than that.

The Omni and Accor packages might have some potential, but that’ll obviously depend on what the normal room rates would be and if you want to travel to any of the eligible properties.

For all of these deals, be sure to check the terms. For example, the various Omni packages can only be redeemed at select properties. Don’t buy one of the two night getaways for $175 expecting that you can redeem the certificate at any Omni property because that particular package is only good at four Omni properties. It also requires that you check in on a Friday or Saturday night and there are other blackout dates that vary by hotel, with New Year’s Eve also being blacked out. That package still offers value as I doubt any of those four properties can be booked for $87.50 per night at weekends any time of the year, but it’s only worth buying them if you have fairly firm plans to stay at an eligible property and it’ll definitely save you money.

Each deal has its own limits. For example, if you’re like me and want to buy IHG points, you can buy up to five of the 100,000 point packages (there are 534 packages available overall). You can also buy up to 16 packages of IHG Rewards points across all the deals, although even I don’t need that many points right now. The Hyatt points packages on the other hand each have a limit of one – if you can even get one in the first place.

These deals go live at 1pm ET on their respective days, so we’ll post about each one before they go live each day as a reminder.

Does anyone happen to know how long it will take to post in Hilton accounts? I bought them on Saturday and they haven’t appeared in our Hilton accounts.

What’s the last day the remaining packages will be available for sale?

The terms on the DG site say “Between October 7, 2021 and November 5, 2021” – can you confirm whether or not November 5 will be last call?

Every one of the Marriott gift cards was in someone’s cart within 5 seconds of the purchase window opening up.
These promotions are becoming useless.

Managed to get a $500 gift card after some refreshing.
