  1. not really a good offer, because in T&C it says that when paying with these gift cards you only ear 1 or 2 marriott points instead of regular 10, if I remember it correctly.

  2. Seems like a good way to meet a credit card spend limit now that the US mint $1 thing is over

  3. Aren’t we missing the value of the LUV points? Buy the gift cards with the Marriott rewards card + redemption marriott points + value of the LUV points. I assume the 12000 points are worth between $150 and $180 for a minimum 15% return just on the LUV portion.

    Assuming you get credit for the stays, if you are using them for the current promo of stay 2 nights get one free, the points earned on the stay are only minor value compared to the value of the free night.

    Please let me know if I am missing something.
