$160 Marriott eGiftCards with MegaBonus free hotel night opportunity

I have never purchased a Marriott gift card. But I will try for $200 in Marriott gift cards today for $160.

Today’s 1:00 pm ET offer on U.S. Travel Association’s Daily Getaways is 20% off Marriott Gift Cards starting at $80 for a $100 card with a maximum purchase of two cards. There are higher denomination cards too for $250 and $500, both at 20% off. Limited quantities means these will sell out to Marriott frequent guests. The easiest item to score should be the $100 travel cards since there are 1,070 cards for sale.

The main tip for Daily Getaways is be clicking the second the sale opens to get through to the purchase page. Once you have the purchase page link open, then you can relax and leisurely fill in your information as long as your plan is to buy only one Marriott offer. If you want multiple offers like $250 and $500 cards, then have two browsers open and ready to click to get to the purchase page on two different devices. Then, you have seven 5:00 minutes to complete the purchases. Once you have all your information entered and press the button, you reach another screen with another 5 minutes to finalize purchase with a couple of checked boxes and click.

Marriott MegaBonus free night

Daily Getaways has offered Marriott gift cards at 20% off for the past six years. Up to now, I have had no need for any Marriott brand hotels during the Marriott Rewards 2016 MegaBonus promotion ending May 15.

I just checked hotel rates and see I can pick up two Marriott hotel nights on a road trip to Southern California for about $190. Two separate hotel stays earn a free category 1-5 hotel reward night with my MegaBonus offer. I get two hotel stays I need for the road trip at a cost of $160, while earning a free night and enough Marriott Rewards points to boost my member account to next higher category reward night level for a free night. In a way the $160 purchase covers four hotel nights with Marriott.

  1. I scored the two $100 cards. I thought it was a 7 minute timer on my purchases earlier this month? 5:00 minute timer today to get information and credit card entered.

    Items were unavailable after I completed my purchase and checked again for different cards.

  2. I was able to buy a $500 and a $100. Last year I bought a $500. I enjoy this promotion each year.
