Marriott’s MegaBonus Free Night Promotion is Back for February – April

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.

  1. 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”.

  2. It says category 5:

    To earn up to two free nights:
    •Register by March 31, 2014
    •Stay between February 1 and April 30, 2014
    •Earn a free night at a category 1-5 hotel after the second paid stay External Window, up to two free nights

  3. 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.

  4. @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.

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

  6. weird. promo not working for me. i was able to sign up for the 2013 Q4 promo but not sure why the link isn’t working for me for Feb to April. didnt change anything to my acct. still a points earner.
