The Daily Getaways Travel promotion kicks off today with the purchase of Marriott gift cards with a 20% discount! This is the first deal of 25 total (every weekday there is a different deal for 5 consecutive weeks). If you know of an upcoming Marriott stay, this is a great way to save some money on your hotel bill. Also, you can typically put any other spend at a Marriott hotel onto your room account and pay with the gift cards at the end of your stay. This goes for spas, resort fees, food, activities, etc. Keep in mind though that you are not able to use gift cards on any pre-paid rate reservations, but you can pay for any extra incidentals with these gift cards upon check out. Gift cards are only able to be redeemed upon check out and prepaid rates will typically charge your credit card immediately upon making the reservation. When using gift cards to pay for your stay you will still receive the points earned to your account and nights towards status.

Like all the other Daily Getaway offers, using an American Express card will give you 10% off your purchase. Without an Amex card this deal actually is 11% off, but with the additional 10% off your purchase by using your Amex credit card you are getting about 20% off the gift card value. This offer will go on sale at 1pm EST TODAY Monday June 10th. Since availability is limited, I can foresee some of the options selling our pretty quickly as 20% off is great, especially since the gift card can be used whenever and comes with no expiration date.

In addition to the discounted gift card option there are 1 night stay certificates you can purchase as well. I’ve listed the details and terms below. These could be cheaper than paying the going rate for the hotel, but check availability and price before purchasing.
