The Daily Getaways deals for 2016 are finishing up this week but I wanted to highlight a pretty solid deal today that many will find beneficial. Today’s packages are for Marriott gift cards at 20% off face value so quite simply this is a way to lock yourselves into a 20% savings on any Marriott or Ritz Carlton hotel. Even if you have an upcoming award reservation, this is a way to take 20% off all incidental purchases – food, drinks, spa packages, activities etc.
Here is what will be available at 1pm EST today:
- $100 Marriott eGiftCard for $80 (1070 eGiftCards available)
- $250 Marriott eGiftCard for $200 (252 eGiftCards available)
- $500 Marriott eGiftCard for $400 (200 eGiftCards available)
I’m not going to rive into too much analysis on this as it’s quite straightforward (especially compared to some other deals in the Daily Getaways this year). This is simply a way to guarantee a 20% savings on all hotels within the Marriott chain (JW Marriott, EDITION, Autograph Collection, Renaissance, Courtyard are just a few of the chains) and also on participating Ritz Carlton hotels. This may also apply to SPG hotels in the future but I wouldn’t bank on that happening for a while (at least next year at the earliest) until the merger is complete.
If you have an upcoming stay at a Marriott family hotel or even a Ritz Carlton, I would strongly consider buying a eGiftCard to lock in a 20% discount. I think its unlikely you will find these at a greater discount elsewhere and even with the increased packages available this year, I bet these will go fast. I’m not a Marriott guy so I’ll be passing on this offer – good luck to everyone going for one!
