Marriott launched an offer the other Monday (read more here) to get some much-needed cash by selling electronic Gift Cards at a discount for 7-days that ended eight days ago.
Members were able to buy an unlimited number (only per purchase limit) at 20% off that can be used for all expenses at hotels. Marriott changed the delivery estimate of these electronic gift cards twice from 1 – 3 days to 1 – 7 and then to 9 (read more here and here).

Well. My five $1,000 gift cards (paid $4K) arrived as separate emails on Saturday morning with a headline “Your Marriott eGiftCard.”
Here’s the text of the email:
It probably makes sense to register these gift cards on the Marriott website where you can track their balances and replace if lost.
I could have paid one stay using these gift cards had they been delivered per the original schedule after the purchase. Not a huge loss. I will use these by fall.
Let’s hope that this gift card sale becomes a yearly tradition again.
