The Marriott MegaBonus Is Coming (Again)

Possibly due to my favorable views toward Marriott, one of my favorite hotel promotions has been Marriott’s MegaBonus.  Thus through Marriott stays I would already make, or planned to make for my Gold challenge, I was able to earn some free night awards.  Across the board it has been a well-received promotion, enough that they have brought it back, running through January.

THE OFFER

  • First Register online here (or call 1-888-627-7468) by October 31, 2012.
  • Then for every TWO (2) Stays between September 15, 2012, and January 15, 2013
  • Earn 1 FREE night,  up to 3 free nights.
    And enjoy your free nights at any of nearly 3,000 Category 1 – 4 hotels!

Even if you do not have any stays with Marriott planned in the near future, I would say to still sign up now.  It can’t hurt, and you don’t want to miss out on FREE award nights in case you do end at a Marriott.

Plus, there is no exclusion of other offers, so it appears this can be stacked with the 50,000 point Just For Me promotion.  Thus, for every two stays you would be earning 5,000 bonus points, in addition to a free night.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
Marriott does tailor their offers to individual members, so the exact details that show up when you log in to your account may vary.

The free night awards are good at any property, up to a Category 4.  Also, they expire within 1 year of being issued.

I have provided the link to the full Terms & Conditions here.

ANALYSIS
Again, the FREE award nights are for Categories 1-4.

One negative in my opinion, is that these cannot be used for Ritz Carlton stays.  However, there still are some pretty good properties within these categories.

For example, I am starting to like the Renaissance brand more and more for its fashionable and refined taste, and there are a slew of them within these award categories.  In addition, these awards can be redeemed for luxurious JW Marriotts in Ankarra (Turkey), Beijing Cairo Caracas (Venezuela) Kuala Lumpur and Quito (Ecuador).

So Marriott’s large size and portfolio of properties, it isn’t hard to find great awards using this “Mega” promotion.

  • First Register online here (or call 1-888-627-7468) by October 31, 2012.
  • Then for every TWO (2) Stays between September 15, 2012, and January 15, 2013
  • Earn 1 FREE night,  up to 3 free nights.

And enjoy your free nights at any of nearly 3,000 category 1 – 4 hotels!
