Note that Travel cards have more restrictions than regular Marriott gift cards (see below the Terms & Conditions that I bolded).  In practice, though, I’ve never had any of those restrictions enforced.

  1. Not travel-related, but in case anybody’s interested: you can get GCs from Dell, Old Navy, and iTunes 20% off via the Coinstar promotion through Dec 9.

  2. THX.
    Trying to weigh up if it is better to use the current 10x offer from gifts.marriott.com as if I buy these using 5x GC this is 500 point plus $20 per $100 spend.
    vs. 5x GC and 1000 points for $100 spend.

    At Marriott you can buy 2k points for $25. this means this deal is even better than the 10x promotion.

    see below:

    • russel: I think of it much more simply — Marriott points, in my opinion, are worth less than a penny each, but let’s say they’re worth a penny to make it easy. In that case, the Marriott 10X deal is like a 10% discount, whereas this is a 20% discount. This Ebay deal is much better.

  3. thanks, FM, I just found that. This is my first time to use ebay although I have 15 years online shopping experience. It seems that I always avoid using ebay. I do not know why. :)

    Another ebay newbie question, what is ebay bucks? Do I need to register to it? I just register an ebay account but I did not find any information about ebay bucks.

    Thanks!

  4. Although if you buy the cards at 10x from Marriott using the black Marriott VISA I believe you will be earning 5 points per dollar that you spend on the cards. Nothing is ever simple and straightforward.

  5. I bought 10 of these with my ebay account and 10 with my wife’s. Paid for both using OD Gift cards (5x).
    They’ve come in the mail.
    Great deal – wish I’d read the suggestion to go through MyPoints first.
