The Daily Getaways today are for MGM Las Vegas packages. Here they are with purchase links, and package details –

The verbiage on the T&C is confusing, as it says that room & tax are included…but then goes on to say that guest is responsible for $30 plus tax.
“Accommodations include two (2) consecutive nights in a Spa Suite (double occupancy). Room and tax included. Guest is responsible for $30.00 plus tax daily resort fee and any other incidental charges.”
Safe to say that the guest is responsible for at least the daily resort fee ($39.68).

$400 food & beverage credit at select Excalibur restaurants.
Package must be used by January 31, 2018. Blackout dates of December 30 and 31, 2017 apply.
Although the T&C don’t say anything about the resort fee at the Excalibur, it sounds to me like the guest is reponsible. Here is the verbiage –
“Four (4) consecutive-night stay includes room rate and tax. Based on double occupancy in a Contemporary Room. Additional costs and incidentals are the responsibility of the guest.”
The Excalibur has a $34.01 resort fee per night.
If you don’t mind the fact that the packages have an expiration date of early 2018 (some are even earlier), you might see some good savings. I think resort fees are terrible, and it is disappointing to see that not all of them are included in the packages so I’ve broken out which ones have to be paid by the guest.
All of the packages go on sale at 1pm EST today.
