Basically you earn 1 free night after each paid stay which can be redeemed for up to 35000 points each night, this can be done twice, my offer is good for stays until March 31st, 2021.

So check your membership's promotion page

https://www.marriott.com/loyalty/promotionCentral.mi

Earn up to two Free Night Awards after two eligible paid stays.

  • Register today.
  • Stay at any of our more than 7,000 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through 03/31/2021.

Same here. I'd love to know the algorithms Marriott uses for these types of offers (and, yes, I know they'll never release publicly), as I've only received one targeted offer since the merger with SPG and I've been at least Titanium and I'm currently Ambassador and LTP. Maybe they don't feel I need anything since I stay so much without offers!

Stay 1 get 1 is pretty awesome for those who do get it! Heck do a mattress run for well under $100 at a Fairfield/Courtyard and use the free night somewhere much more expensive!

Nothing for me....

I used to get SPG promotions like this all the time.... Have never gotten one from Marriott...

I am Gold some years, Platinum others. Marriott must decide I am not worth targeting.

Boy I miss the SPG promotions...

I didn't get that either.

As for algorithms used by Marriott to decide whether a member is targeted or not : Add all the member's membership number then multiply the number with any random number. If the result is even number, then roll the dice to get more even random chance

Here are the additional details, so you could stay somewhere for under $100 and get a free night of up to 35K points, you can do this twice.

  • Stay at any of our more than 7,000 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through 03/31/2021.

If you read Loyalty Lobby some members receive different targeted offers of getting extra points after each stay

https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/12/14/...december-2020/

But some got this instead, which IMHO is a candidate for mattress run if you know exactly what/where you want to redeem at the expensive properties and can find somewhere really cheap.

If you have AmEx Bonvoy Brilliant, check out their offers regularly too, I took advantage of "Spend $1000 and get 10K Points" last month.

I got the two night offer. It came via email earlier this month.

Of course, I don't have any travel planned by March, and with the free nights having a 6 month expiration, I'm not sure it's worth the mattress run.

Nothing here, but the free night award promo looks really good, lucky for those who are targeted with it!
