Maybe for others, but not necessary for me. Of course, it all depends what the dates will be.

My email says 'Stay Twice. Earn a free night. Unlock even more.' I think they had a similar promo before but can't remember the details...

Not a big fan of these. These certs can be hard to use, and I prefer the flexibility of points that don't expire. I'll be interested to see what type of promo SPG runs during the same time period and may end up focusing my efforts there instead.

I'm fairly new to Marriott promos. Do qualifying stays typically start the day of registration or are they typically a week or two out? Thanks.

Yeah!! Finally the one I like. Easily achievable to get a free night.

I think you unlocked extra bonus points after acheiving those certificates. Hopefully they will be at least a category 5 and not a 4.

Much better than this past one of 2,000 points for the same 2 stays.

I miss the ~50k points for 20-25 nights. Have my fingers crossed for that one this time around. I have a goal to close the year with >1M points available. We shall see!

Here is a copy paste of what I was referring to above (Wiki from this page). This was the 2016 MegaBonus from February 1 - May 15. I would not be surprised if it is somewhat similar.

A

Win #1 : Earn a free night after two stays
Win #2 : Unlocked after # 1-(takes several days after cert posts) 2500 points for one additional stay
Win #3 : Every stay counts at 4,000+ hotels worldwide (aka nothing)


B


Win #1 : Earn 10,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights plus 2,000 bonus points each additional night, up to 20,000 bonus points
Win #2 : At the same time, earn a free night after two paid stays (register separately in your online account)
Win #3 : Unlock a new bonus points offer in your online account after you win #1 and #2 - additional 1000 per night, for max of 5000 more points [This offer is unlocked (email notification) after your account contains the 10,000 (not 20,000) bonus points and the free night cert.]

C


Win #1 : Earn 15,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights plus 3,000 bonus points each additional night, up to 30,000 bonus points
Win #2 : At the same time, earn a free night after two paid stays (register separately in your online account)
Win #3 : Unlock a new bonus points offer in your online account after you win #1 and #2 -additional 1000 per night, for max of 5000 more points [This offer is unlocked (email notification) after your account contains the 15,000 (not 30,000) bonus points and the free night cert.]
