Not the most exciting fall hotel promotion around and pretty much like any other “MegaBonus” offer from Marriott Rewards over the past few years. Makes sense only for those that stay a lot at Marriott affiliated properties over the promotional period.

    How about members who have signed up for the Double elite credit? would this mean 5 paid nights and you get 10,000 points?

    • Mayank Agarwal

      both are 2 separate promotions as I think. So your double elite would only get you elite nights. same as was the case in current summer promotion for 10,000 points. and this new one would get you 10,000 points per 10 paid nights. (50,000 for 50 nights)

    Interestingly, when I logged into my MR account there were no new promos listed. The only way I could sign up for this was by following the link posted here to go to the dedicated site for this MegaBonus offer.

    • Mayank Agarwal

      does it show in your active promotions now after registering for it?

      • jmmarton

        Nope. Still shows the summer 2016 10k point promo (completed) with new no promos and nothing else that I’m signed up for. Since this was supposed to take effect 9/1, maybe on Thursday this will suddenly show up?

          Mine was the same way, so I went to sign up again and it said I was already signed up, but it can take 48 hours to post. It has been more than 48 hours. As long as it shows up by the 15th and I get my points, I will be happy. They really need new Web programmers. There are so many problems and inconsistencies on the web site.

    Actually this one takes twice the normal number of nights (50) to hit 50K points. Last year it was 50K for 25 nights as I recall.
