Question Triple Miles Offer with Marriott

So I got this in my inbox a coupla days ago. I'm still mulling switching from Hilton, so this offer seemed like something that might push me over the edge.

Earn triple miles with Marriott Rewards® MegaMiles.
Get to your next dream vacation faster.
Register for Marriott Rewards® MegaMiles and earn triple miles beginning with your second stay at participating Marriott® hotels between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2010.

Instead of earning 500 miles for your stay, for example, you’ll earn 1,500 miles for the same stay with MegaMiles. Register today and start earning toward reward travel even faster.

Register now

However when I click on through to Marriott it says:

Unfortunately, this promotion is not available, but new ones are on the way soon. If you believe you received this message in error, please verify the earning preference for your account matches the earning bonus for the promotion. Simply log on to MarriottRewards.com to verify and/or change your earning preference. If you need additional assistance, call your local Marriott Rewards Customer Care.
What's the story?

Perhaps your marriott account is not set for miles. That is a problem I ran into with a similar offer.

Generally speaking, Marriott Rewards points are far more valuable than CO miles if you're a Marriott elite. It isn't in your profile so I'm just throwing it out there.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I'm a HHiltonite on the fence. I'll qualify for MPlat via their status match challenge, then go from there.

The CO miles bonus will have worn off by then, so it will be good timing to decide whether to stay.
