As I was looking over the website I realized I had never read the section on Marriott Gift Cards.  I was shocked that it appeared that you could earn so many points upfront by purchasing the Gift Cards.  It appears that you could for an example spend 1000.00 and buy 250,000 reward points and Use them at a later time.  I have never purchased these cards so I would love to hear from those who have used them and how exactly they work.  


If I am correct I too might purchase because according to Marriott rules you can only but 50,000 Marriott points per year.  so this would make the Gift Cards a premium purchase for those trying to reach LTPP....


Does anyone know how all this works.
