Blitz Deal: Marriott Summer 2014 Promotion “Getaway Bonus”
Don’t miss out on Marriott Reward’s Summer 2014 promo “Marriott Rewards Getaway Bonus”:
You’ll have to login to your Marriott account and head to the MegaBonus page to see your personalized offer. Here are a few of the offers you may get, all running from June 1 to August 31:
- Earn 2x points after the 2nd paid stay; up to 25,000 bonus points
- Earn 20,000 bonus points after 12 paid nights, plus an additional 10,000 bonus points after 18 paid nights; up to 30,000 bonus points
- Earn 25,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights, plus an additional 10,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights; up to 35,000 bonus points
- Earn 35,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights, plus an additional 10,000 bonus points after 25 paid nights; up to 45,000 bonus points
HELP! I don’t like my targeted promo!: There have been some reports on Flyertalk (link here) that people have called in to Marriott support (Marriott Rewards Customer Support at 888-MARRIOTT) and successfully had a customer representative change their promotion. Your experience may vary, but it’s worth shot if you’re unhappy with your promo.
How to Get It
- Register here: Marriott Rewards Promo Center by July 31, 2014
- Book at least 2 stays at Marriott properties between June 1 and August 31, 2014
- Bonus points will post to your account within 3 – 5 business days of completing the requirements.
- The first promo of 2x bonus points only starts after the 2nd paid stay during the promo period
BOTTOM LINE: This deal is notably much worse than the last 6+ Marriott promotions (they’ve been running the “MegaBonus” for too long to remember). The mid-tier Marriott properties require 20k-30k points for a free night so this promo will, at best, yield enough for 1 – 1.5 free nights–pretty weak promo that I’ll personally be skipping.
