Today’s Daily Getaway is a sizable discount on Marriott gift cards, up to almost 20%.
In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying.
For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes. It’s also important to be patient. If you click shortly after an offer becomes available and it shows sold out, keep trying. Someone may have an offer in their shopping cart but change their mind or have their computer crash. When that happens, their bad luck or change of heart can be your good fortune.
Finally, make sure you pay with an American Express card to save an additional 10%. Any AMEX card will do.

Marriott eGift Cards:
These gift cards are valid at all Marriott brands, including Ritz-Carlton. You’ll still need a credit card or other means to secure a reservation, as the gift card can only be used at the property.
$1000 Marriott gift card for $810 (with the 10% discount for paying with an AMEX card)
$500 Marriott gift card for $405 (with the 10% discount for paying with an AMEX card)
$100 Marriott gift card for $81 (with the 10% discount for paying with an AMEX card)
This is a straight 19% discount on future Marriott stays. These gift cards can be used for pretty much anything, including retail, spa, golf, and F&B charges. They don’t expire so you can feel free to stock up for future trips.
This same deal was offered last year during Daily Getaways. That’s no guarantee they’ll offer it again next year, but Marriott seems to like this offering. There’s not a ton of these available so be prepared to buy right at 1pm EDT.
