Registration for Marriott MegaBonus 2013 opened December 20 for stays from February 1 through April 30. The current Marriott MegaBonus ends January 15.

Promotion registration is required by March 15, 2013 for marriott MegaBonus 2013.

As expected, I continue with the free night certificate for a category 1-4 hotel after every two stays, up to three free nights for the promotion period. This is the same offer I have received every MegaBonus for the past few years. One free night after two stays is a great offer for the leisure traveler considering most other hotel loyalty promotions lately generally require many nights or lots of cash to earn one free hotel night.

Here are the four different Marriott MegaBonus offers that have been posted on FlyerTalk.

1. Stay 2 times, Get 1 CAT 1-4 Certificate (Maximum 3 free night certificates)

2. Stay 2 times, Get 1 CAT 1-5 Certificate (Maximum 2 free night certificates)

3. Stay 15 Nights Get 25,000 Points or Stay 20 Nights Get 40,000 Points

4. Stay 20 Nights Get 35,000 Points or Stay 25 Nights Get 50,000 Points

 

You must log into your account and check Promotion Central to see your targeted offer. The links below show the terms and conditions for each offer.

  1. The stay 4 get 2 Cat-5 is not available to switch to.

  2. I couldn’t find this offer in my online account until I changed my earning preference from miles to points. Then it appeared right away. I hadn’t seen this condition listed anywhere (may have missed it), so thought I’d throw that out in case anyone else runs into this.

  3. I’m not seeing any of these offers, and I’m already set to point not miles. I’m a Silver with 29 nights this year perhaps not targetted?

  4. So the Cat5 certs are for those outside the US? I have 2 homes, one in the US and another in the Asia-Pacific region. If I swap my address that’s listed in my MR profile, would they offer it to me for the next megabonus? I could definitely use the Cat5s, but would have to go out of my way to use the Cat4s.

  11. I am inquiring about your Feb.1 to April 30 promotion to see if I was registered for this promotion.
    If I was registered I do not recall getting any benefits for this promotion. If I was not registered, is their a way that I can register my profile to automatically be registered for all Marriott promotions?
    Thanking you in advance for your tme and consideration.

  12. @Wayne – I do not work for Marriott Rewards. You need to contact them for assistance.
