This is a quick reminder that today is the last day to register for Marriott’s MegaBonus promotion. This promotion runs between September 26 and January 31, 2019, although Marriott will retroactively count your stays.
There are two different ways to earn points with this promotion:
- Earn 2,000 bonus points on all stays of two or more nights
- Earn 1,000 bonus points per brand, starting with your second stay
I personally hate that you need to have a stay consisting of two or more nights to earn the bonus points. And I also hate that you will not earn more points for longer stays. If you think of it in SPG points, this is only 666 SPG points. In the past, when Starwood ran similar promotions, you’d earn at least 1,000 points per stay.
Hotel promotions are weak across the board, so while this promotion isn’t anything to write home about, it is on par with most of the other promotions from other chains as well. You might as well register and if you travel takes you to a Marriott or Starwood property, welcome the extra bonus points!
