This week we’re giving away a $500 Marriott gift card that can be used at any one of the hotel chain’s properties worldwide. You can use your $500 for stays, dining and more at any participating property, including Edition, JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels.

Recently, Chase introduced the new-and-improved Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card which features, among other perks, a fantastic sign-up bonus of three complimentary nights at any Tier 1-4 Ritz-Carlton property after spending $5,000 within the first three months of account opening. You could use your winnings to extend your complimentary stay at certain Ritz-Carlton hotels that are a great use of the free night certificates.

Extend your stay at the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay with your winnings.

You can also earn free nights with the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card, which is currently offering a sign-up bonus of 80,000 Marriott Rewards points — which can also be redeemed at Ritz-Carlton properties worldwide — after spending $3,000 within the first three months of account opening. That’s enough for a night at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay (pictured above), a Tier 4 property requiring 60,000 points per night (50,000 for a PointSaver award).

Enter to win no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, August 22. To enter this giveaway, visit our Facebook Page or enter below:
