This week’s Thursday Giveaway is the chance to win a $250 United gift card and a $250 Marriott gift card. Through the end of November, Marriott and United are running a promotion to earn bonus points and miles when you use your Marriott card with United, or your United card with Marriott.

The Double Stay, Double Go promotion is available until November 30th, and the bonus points or miles will be applied on top of the points and miles you’d normally earn with purchases. You can earn bonus points and miles on purchases made with the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card, the United MileagePlus Explorer Card and the United MileagePlus Club Card. Simply use your Marriott Premier card with United and earn double points on those purchases. Similarly, if you hold either the United Explorer or Club card, you’ll earn double miles on purchases made directly with Marriott.

Win $500 in gift cards from United and Marriott.

This promo is a fantastic opportunity to earn a bonus on paid flights and hotels for a Thanksgiving trip or any other travel planned in the final days of November. You also have the chance to utilize these cards in situations that otherwise might not make sense without the bonus from the promotion. As you choose which cards to use during the promo, be sure to keep the value your points in mind so you can maximize your purchases.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, November 23.
