Marriott recently revealed their new autumn rewards plan known as their MegaBonus. The reward is simple to earn and moderately generous. Here’s what you need to know.
You Can Earn a Free Night
The main deal of the Fall 2017 MegaBonus is that you can earn a free night’s stay after two qualifying paid stays in any Marriott hotel. To qualify, you must register for your two stays between September 6 and November 30, 2017, and lodge at the hotel twice between September 12, 2017, and January 15, 2018. You’ll receive your free stay certificate on your account within 3-5 days after your second stay.
There Are Conditions
When you receive your credit for a free stay, it’s only good in category 1-5 hotels. The good thing is, you could make your two qualifying stays in category 2 hotels and then use your certificate for a level 5 with no additional fees. It’s like earning 7,500 to 25,000 Marriott rewards points for free. The bad thing is, a level 5 is only a mid-grade hotel, so you won’t be staying anywhere fancy. Also, the certificate is only valid for six months, so make sure you remember to use it in time.
You Can Easily Earn the Free Night in One Trip if You’re Savvy
If you’re looking to earn your free night faster, think about staying in two separate hotels on your next trip. If there are two Marriott owned hotels in your destination city, stay at each one for half the time of your trip. That way, you’ve completed the qualifications for your certificate and can use it the next time you travel.
You May Have the Option of an Additional Offer
Marriott has made it known that some customers will be eligible for an additional offer after their second stay. They’re keeping tight-lipped about which customers will receive the second offer and what that offer will be, but you might just get lucky. It’s set to kick in 2-3 days after your qualifying stays. Customers won’t be notified, so you’ll need to check your Marriott Rewards account when that time has passed.
If you’re a Marriott Hotel regular, their new rewards MegaBonus could be a great deal for you. Make two stays that you would normally do anyway and you can earn a free night. Just make sure you know the conditions of using the certificate and you can make it worth your while.
