Looking forward to your summer vacation already? Get your plans in motion and save some money at the same time, because Discover America, America’s official travel website, just launched a daily getaway travel promotion today that features deeply discounted travel deals within the United States, some offering great behind-the-scenes travel experiences (like today's trip to New York's Fashion Week).

Every weekday from today until June 4, there will be specially priced travel products and trips available on with up to 50 percent off from some of America’s best hotels, airlines, rental cars, attractions, theme parks, restaurants and shops.

There is a limited number of deals available each day, so act quickly. Today’s Sheraton, Four Points by Sheraton, and aloft by W Hotels deals are already sold out, but tomorrow there will be the opportunity to snag a fly and stay deal from United Airlines and Four Seasons Hotels in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, or Washington, D.C.

In addition to these daily deals, there is also a special getaway package auction offered each weekday through June 4 (open exclusively to American Express Card holders). Bidding opens each day at 10 A.M. ET and closes at 10 P.M. ET.

Things kick off today with a Fashion Week trip to New York from September 10-12, 2010. Though bidding starts at $3,500, it’s a great value considering how much is included:
