According to the Daily Getaways site, gift cards will be delivered by email within 10-14 days of purchase. When you buy a gift card directly from Marriott, they state that eGiftCard orders are delivered within 1-3 business days due to order verification. It doesn't make sense to us why it would take so much longer for Daily Getaways to deliver a digital gift card by email. This type of language is often in place to give legal cover in case of unexpected delays, but you probably shouldn't count on receiving these right away.
According to the terms and conditions, the gift cards may be used at the following Marriott brands, and at participating hotel outlets; retail, spa, golf and food and beverage:
- AC Hotels by Marriott®

Will this Work with Pre-Payed Bookings?
Marriott offers better pricing when you prepay for non-refundable accommodation. According to the Marriott T&Cs
“The eGiftCard must be presented at time of checkout or conclusion of services as tender.”
It is unclear whether you'll be able to apply these gift cards to a prepaid booking. Will Marriott refund you, and take the gift card as payment when you check out? We have not been able to answer the question, despite reaching out to Marriott. If you have experience using gift cards for prepaid accommodation, please let us know in the comments below.
If you stay at participating Marriott hotels, then this promotion is an easy win. As long as you don't mind tying up cash to purchase the eGiftCard in advance, you can secure a 20% discount on your next stay. But remember: selling gift cards (even at a discount) is a good deal for brands because some people never redeem them. Don't become a breakage statistic! If you decide to purchase, don't forget that you can track your gift cards right in AwardWallet. With just over 1,500 gift cards for sale, this deal will probably sell out in minutes, so be ready a few minutes before 1 p.m.
