Marriott has brought back its eGiftCards sale this time at 15% off (the previous sale in May was at 20% discount – read more here).
You can buy up to $5,000 worth of Marriott eGiftCards per day. This sale is valid for purchase made July 20 – 24, 2020.
Note that these electronic gift cards are now available for purchases with credit cards that have US or Canadian billing address. They can be used at all other Marriott brands except Bvlgari, Design Hotels, Homes & Villas, and The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club.
The charge is processed by Marriott directly and qualifies as Marriott spent with affiliated credit cards. It can take anywhere from 1 to 15 days for the eGirftCards to arrive.
Here’s the information about the offer:
This is a great way to save 15% on your future Marriott stays. They are treated as cash, and you cannot use them towards prepaid rates because they must be processed at the hotel at the time of checking out (you cannot guarantee a stay using them).
I purchased $5,000 worth of eGiftCards (paid $4,000 during the previous sale), and haven’t used any of them yet. They took a while to arrive (read more here).
