    Sounds like you’re the guinea pig to tell us all if it works. You’ve nothing to lose right?

    I’ll be near Waterloo after work next Wednesday so will pop into the Count Hall Marriott and see if I can buy a gift card! I’ll report back next week

    I ended up being in town yesterday and popped by the Bankside Hotel – they don’t sell Marriott Gift Cards at the front desk , and their suggestion was to buy from the Marriott website.

    Looks like you can only buy them online in USD and there’s restrictions on where you can spend them

    Thanks – I trust if I brought the gift card online it wouldn’t activate the Amex cashback. I’ll be staying at a US Sheraton and Westin in a couple of weeks, so it would be handy if I could spend £400 on a gift card in the UK, which equates to c.$500 and therefore save some FX fees vs using the Amex card at the hotel (and also the Marriott/Amex cashback doesn’t apply to US properties)
