A reader recently asked me, “When you buy a gift card from a hotel or travel agent, what are the best promotions they are promoting?”
I had been wondering for a while now, too, so I took a closer look at what hotel gift cards were available on offer in the US and what travel agencies were promoting their offer to readers.
I also looked at the price and the availability of travel agents, and found that, for the most part, the best gift card deals were those offered by major travel agencies.
(See “Best Travel Agents” below for details.)
The best gift cards available on the US market are Marriott’s Ultimate Rewards credit card and the United MileagePlus® card, which are both available for $150, with the minimum purchase requirement of $2,500.
The Visa Signature® card is a slightly cheaper $80.
The best hotel travel offers on the market can be found on the websites of the American Airlines, Delta, United, United Airlines, Virgin America, and Hawaiian Vacations, among others.
Here’s a look at some of the best travel offers and what they’re offered to readers: Marriott Ultimate Rewards Card Marriott Rewards Mastercard Ultimate Rewards Visa Signature Card American Airlines Delta United MileagesPlus United Mileagers Visa Signature Cards Virgin America Hawaiian Vacation Cards United Airlines Hawaiian Vacatoria Rewards Visa Prestige Rewards Visa Visa Signature Visa Signature Signature Delta Airline Platinum Visa Signature American Airlines Platinum United Milepoints Rewards American Airlines Prestige Miles Visa Signature United Mile points Delta Air Line Platinum United Miles Rewards American Express MasterCard Visa Signature Delta Miles Visa Platinum United miles Marriott Rewards Platinum Rewards American Eagle Airlines Platinum Rewards Hilton HHonors MasterCard Marriott Rewards Visa Platinum Hilton Rewards American Hilton Rewards Hilton Rewards Marriott Rewards Marriott Points Delta Air Miles Marriott Points Hilton H-1 Visa Platinum Delta Air Rewards Hilton Points Delta Points Hilton Rewards Miles Delta Miles Delta Points American Eagle Platinum Rewards Delta Points Miles Delta Airlines Points Delta Airlines Miles Delta Air Points Delta Flight Delta Rewards Delta Rewards Marriott Business Platinum Rewards Visa Business MasterCard MasterCard Delta Rewards Hilton Business Master Card Hilton Business Platinum Hilton Business Rewards Hilton Premier Rewards Hilton Platinum Rewards JetBlue Premier Rewards JetStar Platinum Rewards Marriott Air Business Mastercard Marriott Rewards Jet Star MasterCard JetStar Business Platinum Marriott Rewards Delta Business Master Visa Signature Platinum Delta Business Rewards Delta Master Visa Silver Delta Business Platinum Delta Master Gold Delta Business Gold Delta Master Platinum Delta Plus Delta Business Silver Delta Plus JetBlue Business Platinum JetBlue Preferred Rewards Jet Blue Preferred Rewards Marriott Gold Platinum Marriott Preferred Rewards Delta Preferred Rewards American JetBlue Gold Marriott Preferred Reward Delta Plus Marriott Preferred Delta Preferred Delta Plus Southwest JetBlue Platinum Delta Preferred Marriott Business Gold Marriott Business Silver Marriott Business Plus Delta Preferred Southwest Southwest JetPlus Marriott Business Premium Delta Preferred
