Via canucklehead in the Milepoint thread discussing Frequent Traveler University, Marriott is back with its MegaBonus promotion — one free night (at a category 1-4 property) after two stays, and you can earn the bonus twice.

Registation is required.

  • Register by March 31, 2014
  • Stay between February 1 and April 30, 2014
  • Free night award will expire one (1) year after the date of issuance.

Some members get targeted for other offers instead:

  • Their free nights are valid for up to category 5 instead of category 4.
  • Additional 1,000 bonus points per stay for up to 10,000 bonus points on top of the free nights (capped at category 4).
  • Bonus points instead of free nights (40,000 – 55,000 for as many as 45 nights during the promotion period).

Marriott has, in the psat, been willing to switch promotions for elite members who ask.

    Cat 1-4 certs are worth less and less each year. I’ll never be participating in one of these promos again if that’s the “prize”.

    jim, different offers go out to different accounts, my offer also states category 1-4 sadly

  4. Robert Hanson said,

    My offer is for Cat 5.

    Plenty of good Courtyard locations at Cat 5. Some decent Residence Inns even at Cat 4. Perfect for a one night airport stay.

    @jethro “Marriott has, in the past, been willing to switch promotions for elite members who ask”.

    Worth a call or a sm to find out.

    Promotion link is dead

    Problem solved. One must be a points earner rather than a miles earner in order to see the promotion.
