These Samsonite spinner bags that Marriott is giving away....

...anyone have one? Are they any good? (It's the new buy-a-gift-card deal.)

Not that I really need one, but if it's free... Correct me if I'm wrong on the "free" part: is there currently a way to buy a Marriott Gift Card with percent-off instead of a Samsonite bag? Also - I'm assuming that a Gift Card posts as a Marriott purchase earning 5,000 points, thus resulting in no net loss on hotel stays. (Obviously the "free" part implies that you would stay at a Marriott in the near-term anyway and aren't locking up money long-term on a gift card.)

eBayers seem to think the bag is worth about a hundred bucks, for what it's worth.
