Yesterday I shared a way to get 10% off Marriott gift cards. But with one extra step, you can double dip and increase your savings to 15.5% off Marriott purchases.
Purchase Gift Cards At 10% Off
Check out sites like TwoSmiles where you can buy gift cards at a 10% discount. Remember to use the coupon code HALLOWEEN when completing your purchase to get the discount.
Marriott 2X Cash Back At Ebates For 5.5% Cash Back
Marriott normally earns 2.5% cash back with Ebates. But because of 2X cash back promotion is running, Ebates is offering more than double the normal amount with 5.5% cash back for a limited time.
Terms And Conditions
Exclusions: Cash back is not available on Rooms offered at specially negotiated rates, where the customer is required to be affiliated with or employed by a particular company or organization to receive the special rate (e.g., government rate or the Marriott employee rate) and Rooms that are booked and paid for using Marriott Rewards Points. .
Special Terms: Cash Back for travel may not appear in your Ebates account until up to 40 days after travel has been completed.
How To Double Dip
Step 1: Purchase a Marriott Gift Card for a 10% off discount
Step 2: Go through Ebates to make your Marriott purchase to earn 5.5% cash back on the value of your Marriott purchase using your gift cards purchased at a 10% discount.
Purchasing Marriott gift cards at a TwoSmiles plus making Marriott purchases through Ebates is a great way to save money on Marriott reservations.
If you don’t already have the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card, it is currently offering 50,000 bonus points after meeting minimum spend requirements. The card comes with no fee the first year and has no foreign transaction fees. If you like keeping Marriott status, the card comes with 15 credits towards elite qualification every year at the card anniversary.
