It’s underwhelming, but it’s free points if you were going to stay with Marriott anyway.

(As an aside, all the fall hotel promos seem pretty lame. It almost seems pointless to even offer if they aren’t strong enough to lure people away from your competition. But as a customer, you may as well enroll anyway.)

In this version of the MegaBonus, you have two choices

  • Option 1: Earn 10,000 bonus points for every 10 stays, up to 50,000 bonus points
  • Option 2: Earn 5,000 bonus points after the second stay (max 5,000 bonus points)

You need to register  here by December 15th – so you have time to figure out what works best for your stay pattern.  And that’s what I would to do maximize this promotion, though – let’s be honest – 50,000 Marriott points is very underwhelming as a maximum bonus.
