This week only: Save 15% on Marriott Bonvoy eGift cards

It's no secret that hotels have been dramatically affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

On Marriott's Q1 earnings call in May, we learned that occupancy had been at 20% in North America at limited-service hotels and that roughly 25% of Marriott hotels worldwide were temporarily closed (at the time).

As a result, Marriott has been trying to generate cash and entice people to stay this summer, including a sale on homes and villas, bonuses on buying points and discounts on gift cards. And today, the program is back with a new sale when you purchase eGift cards — which can be a great way to save on an upcoming stay.

Here are the details for this new promotion.

Get 15% off Marriott gift cards

Starting today and running through Friday, July 24, U.S. and Canadian residents can save 15% when they purchase Marriott eGift cards online. These discounted offers come in five denominations:

  • $50 gift cards for $42.50
  • $100 gift cards for $85
  • $250 gift cards for $212.50

  • $1,000 gift cards for $850

To purchase one of these discounted eGift cards, head to this page and select the one you want. Note that the discount won't initially appear when you click on it.

Marriott gift cards are issued in U.S. dollars and never expire, so grabbing one of these now could be a nice way to save on a future stay — even if you're not planning to travel for a while. Just note that it could take up to 15 days to receive the gift card, and you're limited to $5,000 per credit card per day. However, you can purchase these cards for others — so this discount could be a nice way to surprise a loved one for a future trip.

Purchasing Marriott gift cards does count as a Marriott purchase, so you'd be eligible for bonus points on cards like the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card (up to 17x Bonvoy points per dollar spent at hotels participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program) as well as non-Marriott cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® (3x Ultimate Rewards points) and Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card (2x Ultimate Rewards points).

Marriott has also taken several other steps during the pandemic to support members, including extending elite status, depositing bonus elite-night credits into members' accounts and taking notable steps to ensure rooms are clean. You can also currently earn bonus points on select cobranded Chase credit cards for purchases at gas stations and restaurants.

Bottom line

The array of summer offers continues, as companies work to incentivize travelers to dip their toes back in the water and bring in some much-needed dollars. Just remember that many countries and states continue to impose restrictions on travel, so a discount like this should be used for longer-term plans. If you want 15% off Marriott eGift cards, be sure and act quickly, as the discount ends on Friday, July 24.
