Marriott’s MegaBonus is back this fall and is offering targeted bonus opportunity based on stay history and elite level. The new MegaBonus registration is now open, but stays towards the promotion are valid from Sept 15, 2015 – January 15, 2016 only. Under the current Marriot Mega Bonus, each paid night stay counts towards the promotion where either bonus points will be rewarded after a certain amount of stays or double points will be provided for each stay.
I was provided with the opportunity to earn 45,000 bonus miles which appears to be among the highest amount of bonus points Marriott is offering in this Mega Bonus per the FT thread.
My Marriott Mega Bonus offer:
- Earn* 25,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights, then 2,000 bonus points for every additional paid night, up to 45,000 bonus points.
Other Marriott MegaBonus offers:
- Earn double points with every stay, beginning with your 2nd stay, up to a maximum of 20,000 points.
- 15,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights + 2,000 bonus points after each additional night, up to 35,000 bonus points
- 2,000 bonus points on every paid stay*, starting with your second stay, up to up to 20,000 bonus points
This Marriott Mega Bonus appears to be an exact replica of past Mega Bonus, as the Marriott marketing team has failed to come up with anything new or creative. What do you think of these bonus? 45,000 points after 30 nights for me isn’t anything fantastic, as most decent Marriott hotels cost 35k-50,000 points. However, if work has me staying in Marriott this fall, I’ll be glad to know a promotion is back after a summer hiatus. Just remember always book via Marriott’s website as stays booked through 3rd party booking engines usually do not count towards Elite status.
