We’re in the fourth week of Daily Getaways, which is an opportunity to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages. Daily Getaways go live at 1PM ET every weekday, and the more popular packages sell out very quickly, so you’ll want to be fast, if interested.
Buy Marriott gift cards for 20% off
Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted Marriott gift cards. This is one of the most widely useful Daily Getaways promotions, and one that I know many people take advantage of every year.
Daily Getaways is selling three types of packages for Marriott gift cards, as follows:
|Number Of Points||Package Cost||Savings||Number Of Packages|
|$100 Marriott gift card||$80||20% off||1070|
|$250 Marriott gift card||$200||20% off||252|
|$500 Marriott gift card||$400||20% off||200|
Each person can purchase at most five gift cards, including two $100 gift cards, two $250 gift cards, and one $500 gift card. Typically this Daily Getaways promotion sells out very quickly, so if you’re interested, you’ll want to be on the site at 1PM ET and ready to click.
These gift cards don’t expire, and can be used at participating hotels of the following brands:
AC Hotels by Marriott, Aloft, Autograph Collection Hotels, Courtyard, Delta Hotels and Resorts, EDITION, Element, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Four Points by Sheraton, Gaylord Hotels, JW Marriott, Le Méridien, Marriott Hotels, Marriott Vacation Club, Moxy Hotels, Renaissance Hotels, Residence Inn, Sheraton, SpringHill Suites, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, The Ritz-Carlton, TownePlace Suites, Tribute Portfolio, W, Westin
This is the first year this promotion is being offered where these gift cards are valid at former Starwood hotels, so that’s awesome.
These gift cards will be issued by email within 10-14 business days of when you make your purchase. They can be used worldwide, though the exchange rate used for them might not be great at some properties outside the US. The one catch when it comes to redeeming them is that they can only be used to settle a bill at the actual hotel, so you can’t typically use them for pre-paid rates.
Which credit card should you use for Daily Getaways?
In case you do decide to make a purchase, Daily Getaways purchases should be coded as travel, so you’ll want to use a credit card offering bonus points on travel.
Note that this includes the general “travel” category, rather than these purchases specifically being coded as hotels.
So consider one of the following cards:
- Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which offers 3x Ultimate Rewards points
- Citi Premier℠ Card, which offers 3x ThankYou points
- Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, which offers 2x Ultimate Rewards points
It’s hard to go wrong picking up Marriott gift cards for 20% off, especially since they don’t expire. This promotion is also more useful than in the past, given that gift cards can now also be redeemed at former Starwood brands
