Amex Daily Getaways: Purchase Marriott Gift Cards at a 19% Discount

Tomorrow’s Daily Getaway promotion (Week 4, Day 1) is offering the opportunity to get up to 19% off the purchase of Marriott eGift cards. With this offer, you can purchase gift cards in the following increments:

  • $1,000 eGiftCard for $900; or use Amex credit card and pay only $810 (75 available)
  • $500 eGiftCard for $450; or use Amex credit card and pay only $405 (305 available)
  • $100 eGiftCard for $90; or use Amex credit card and pay only $81 (410 available)

If you typically stay at Marriott hotels or have an upcoming stay, then this is a great deal. A few things to keep in mind:

  • If you are booking a pre-paid rate you will not be able to use gift certificates as your payment method
  • I’ve never found the exchange rate to be favorable when using hotel gift cards internationally
  • If you have a stay booked on points, you can still use the gift certificate for other incidentals on your bill, such as dining charges, spa, etc.
  • The gift certificates do not expire

This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TOMORROW Monday June 9th. I believe this will be a very popular deal due to the fixed discount and unfortunately there are not too many available. I foresee this promotion selling out within seconds, but it is still worth a shot! Goodluck!

  1. About the exchange rate when using these internationally, how does it work? I suppose that the hotel will convert the bill using some exchange rate into US Dollars? Is that the rate you’re talking about? If so, I can understand that it would be a few percent higher (or lower) than the bank rate, but I doubt it would be anywhere near 19%, still making these very attractive internationally. Don’t you think?
