Marcus Hotels & Resorts announced last week that it was launching a set of eGift cards, suitable for spot and points-based incentives, as well as individual travel program awards, that can be purchased and delivered online. 

The cards can be redeemed at any of the Milwaukee, WI-based hotel management company's 18 hotels and resorts (including such popular incentive properties as Grand Geneva Resort & Spa and AC Marriott Chicago Downtown). They can also be used toward dining at its signature restaurants, golfing, or skiing at its resort properties, or for treatments at its on-site spas. Buyers can purchase them at MarcusGiftCards.com, selecting from a number of themes -- such as snowflakes or a holiday sweater design -- as well as the amount, up to $500. It can be sent to the recipient via email (on the date of the sender's choosing) or printed and included in a card. 

Not just the recipients will be able to enjoy the gift, though: Marcus Hotels will send a $25 bonus gift card through the mail to the shopper for every $100 gift card purchase he or she makes.

"Marcus Hotels & Resorts' businesses provide the perfect gift for spa goers, golf and ski lovers, wine and food enthusiasts, and for those who want to enjoy a special experience at one of our premier properties throughout the U.S.," said Joseph Khairallah, president and chief operating officer of Marcus Hotels & Resorts, in a statement.

The company is premiering its eGift cards at the same time it's launching a new gift card website, aimed at making the selection and purchasing process for both digital and physical gift cards simpler and more engaging for shoppers.
