Anyway to purchase gift cards online to trigger the credit? If I have to go to a Marriott, I can just walk in to the front desk and ask them if they sell gift cards? Would it work at a Sheraton?

TY

Marriott gift card purchase is showing up as gift card purchase, and as of yet didn't receive the credit, am I doing something wrong?
