Thursday only, you can stock up on Marriott gift cards for 20% off. The gift cards are offered via Daily Getaways, a series of travel deals hosted by the US Travel Association, which is now in its tenth year. While many of the deals are travel packages that involve a specific destination, this is one of the more flexible offerings to emerge.

Beginning at 1pm ET Thursday, a limited number of Marriott e-gift cards will be available. A $100 card will cost $80, a $250 card will cost $200 and a $500 card will cost $400. Just over 1,000 of the $100 cards will be available, while around 200 of the larger denominations will be up for grabs. Click here to see Thursday’s Daily Getaways offer.

Each individual is capped at 5 cards, including a pair of $100 cards, a couple of $250 cards and a single $500 card. This deal typically vanishes quickly, as the gift cards do not expire and can be applied at the following Marriott brands.

One thing to note is that these gift cards must be presented at the time of check-out at a property, and cannot be used “for deposit, advance purchase or to secure or confirm a reservation.” On the property, you can use it to settle your room bill, as well as pay for things like dining, spa treatments and golf outings.

As these transactions are processed by Daily Getaways rather than Marriott, you wouldn’t earn any bonus points by charging the gift cards to a product such as the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card or Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card.

However, the purchase(s) will code as travel, so be sure to use a card which offers heightened bonuses on all travel transactions:

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on travel)
  • Citi Premier® Card (3x on travel)
  • Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x on travel)

Even if you aren’t interested in Marriott cards, keep an eye on the ongoing list of Daily Getaways deals. When you find something that aligns with your travel goals, be sure to make the purchase using a card that provides a bonus for travel-related spend.
