Here’s the info that Marriott Rewards has released:

The all-new MegaBonus is here — and it’s a win-win-win situation for you. For the first time ever, once you’ve earned your rewards, you’ll unlock a new bonus points offer. Register by April 15 and you’ll earn for every stay between February 1 and May 15, 2016.

Earn a free night — that’s win #1. Get bonus points – that’s win #2. And every stay counts at 4,000+ hotels worldwide — that’s win #3. You can redeem your rewards to stay at more places than ever before — or use your points for shopping, dining, exploring and more.

Stay more, earn more. See the details and register now. Let the winning begin!

Two promotions:

Marriott Rewards Spring 2016 MegaBonus Offers

You need to register for the free night certs and bonus points promotions separately. It appears that Marriott Rewards basically has two concurrent promotions (free night + bonus points) and cannot combine them to one registration.

Promotion status:

Marriott Rewards Spring 2016 MegaBonus Offers Status

Both promotions appear under MegaBonus

Promotion options:

Seems that there are two options for the bonus points:

1. 10,000 bonus points after 15 nights + 2,000 bonus points for each additional night for maximum of 20,000 bonus points

2. 15,000 bonus points after 20 nights + 3,000 bonus points for each additional night for maximum of 30,000 bonus points

Conclusion

Marriott Rewards run the same old MegaBonus for several years. I criticized them for basically being on an autopilot, because there were not other changes over the time besides dropping the free night certs that used to be the best option for most.

It is interesting to see what kind of offers other Marriott Rewards members have received (+ what category that free night cert turns out to be) and if they differ. Remember to post yours to the comment section below so that we can compare them.

Although Marriott Rewards claims that the promo should be live now, there is nothing showing up in my account yet.

The promotion has now gone live. The free night certificate is category 1 – 5 and must be used within 6 months of earning.

The terms under the promotion are bit unclear. It would indicate that you would get another offer after earning the free night and on the T&Cs it implies that you can lock another offer only after completing both.

My personal promo would require me to complete 25 nights during the promotional period to unlock the last offer. I doubt that it would be worthwhile for me considering other offers out there.

Here are the terms and conditions of the free night certificate offer:

  1. A ‘stay’ is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity.
  2. Registration is required.
  3. Marriott Rewards members who register for this promotion by April 15, 2016 will earn one (1) free night award at a category 1-5 hotel (value of standard free night award ranges from 7,500 points for Category 1 hotels to 25,000 points for Category 5 hotels) after two paid stays made between February 1, 2016 and May 15, 2016 at participating Marriott® properties.
  4. If a member completes two qualifying stays during the promotional period, an additional offer will be unlocked and become available in the member’s account within 2-3 days after the second qualifying stay.
  5. The member may not receive additional notification except through their online member account and must register for the additional offer within two (2) weeks from the date the additional offer becomes available.
  6. Maximum one (1) free night award earned with this promotion per member to be redeemed for a future stay at participating Marriott Rewards category 1-5 properties.
  7. Free night award will expire six (6) months after the date of issuance.
  8. An earned free night award is good for one (1) single or double occupancy standard room only and includes the cost of the hotel room and applicable room taxes only.
  9. An earned free night award will be added to the member’s account within 3-5 business days after the second qualifying stay.
  10. The awarded free night certificate is not transferable and may not be given as a gift.
  11. Nights spent while redeeming an award are not eligible for credit and Marriott Vacation Club® owner-occupied weeks are not eligible for credit.
  12. Only one room per hotel is counted toward a member’s nights or stay.
  13. Members electing to earn miles are not eligible for this promotion.
  14. For a list of current Marriott Rewards participating brands, visit http://www.marriott.com/marriott-rewards/earn/hotels.mi.
  15. Stays at our exclusive luxury hotel partner, The Ritz-Carlton®, will count toward achievement.
  16. Rooms booked through most third party online retailers and select travel agency bookings are ineligible to earn for this promotion.
  17. All Marriott Rewards program terms and conditions apply. See www.marriott.com/rewards/terms/earning.mi for more information.
  18. Visit MarriottRewards.com or contact us for complete details.

    It says that free night certificate (Cat 1-5) is valid 6 months from the day of issue. Does this mean that stay must happen within 6 months or that I have to use the certificate within the 6 months to make a booking?

    Careful on the small print here – once you have the 2 stays and the free cert, you have to go back in and register for offer 2 within 14 days – they wont remind you!!

    Anyone else having problems registering for this offer? It is not showing up under my promotions and when I click the link it errors out.

  • Nato

    Has anyone figured this double-Megabonus out yet? Is it really 2 seperate-yet-synchronous offers? I just called their helpdesk to ask and he said that 1 offer is really the unlocked bonus of the other offer. He said I can book 2 stays and I’ll get 1 free night plus I’ll unlock the other offer of 20 nights for 15k points. Below is my listed offers, whereby his comments would say that Offer 2 unlocks Offer 1, even thought I signed up for both of them at the same time…

    • Nato

      I can’t paste my offers in here accurately, but here’s my summary:
      Offer 1:
      win1 = 15k pints for 20 nights + extras.
      win2 = earn free night after 2 paid stays
      win3 = unlock a new bonus after 1 & 2.
      Offer 2:
      win1 = unlock free night after 2 paid stays
      win2 = unlock new bonus offer and register when it appears
      win3 = every stay counts.

  • Charity

    Looks like everyone has the same offers it just differs on whether or not your first bonus is a free night or the points chase. Interesting some are getting both to show up simultaneously instead of having to unlock the 1st before getting the 2nd bonus. Also some may have already achieved the 2nd night bonus prior to signing up…

  • Sourav

    We need two stays for one night free certificate. Two one night stays count?
