    I have the amex Marriott Bonvoy brilliant card. You mentioned that cards count as travel. Does this mean That I will be able to count the money spent on the card towards the initial bonus points offered when signing up for the card?

    Thank you

    Hey Familyman, yes that should work. Buying the gift cards, even with a discount, should count as normal spend towards your sign-up bonus.
