Marriott Rewards today announced their next MegaBonus that is valid for stays January 16 – April 15, 2017, and requires registration by March 15.

The base promotion is just double points for the first three stays during the promotional period. There are, however, two separate targeted offers for those that spend more time at Marriott properties.

Here are the three options:

1. Double points for the first three stays between January 16 – April 15, 2017

2. Double points for the first three stays between January 16 – April 15, 2017. Members can earn an additional 15,000 bonus points after ten nights + 1,500 bonus points for each additional night for a maximum bonus of 30,000 Marriott Rewards points (after 20 nights)

3. Double points for the first three stays between January 16 – April 15, 2017. Members can earn an additional 20,000 bonus points after twenty nights + 1,500 bonus points for each additional night for a maximum bonus of 45,000 Marriott Rewards points (after 30 nights)

Note that you only earn double points for the first three stays during the promotional period. If you have been targeted the option 2 or 3, the nights that count towards the additional bonus starts after the first three stays have been consumed.

Conclusion

The base promotion for double points for the first three stays during the promotional period is in my opinion weak and wouldn’t sway me to stay at Marriott properties at all.

There then are the more traditional MegaBonus offers for those that can stay 20+ nights at Marriott affiliated properties during the promotional period.

    I asked the FB Marriott Rewards if Double Elite Nights is coming back in 2017, as this was a nice initiative !

    • They usually have such offers later in the year not from the beginning of January.

  • jmmarton

    Anyone else not able to sign up for this? I had no problems with the SPG promo, but when I follow the link for the Marriott one I get a message that the promotion is unavailable or I’m not eligible. When I go to the promotions page in my MR account, no new promos are listed there.

    • alwweb

      I get the same results. It is kind of frustrating.

      • Doesn’t make any sense as this open really should be open for everyone. Contact Marriott Rewards and they should be able to sign you up manually.

        • alwweb

          After contact MR through their Insiders site and just received confirmation today that I have been registered and am in the 2nd group. Their web site seems to get glitchy sometimes, but they always fix things if you contact them. Thanks for keeping us up to date so that we know when we have to contact MR. 🙂

  • Razz

    Not able to sign up either.

  • jmmarton

    I contacted MR on Facebook. They signed me up, but only for offer 1 which is double points on the first three stays and that’s it! I asked about option 2 since I don’t know if I’ll have enough nights to make option 3 worthwhile and they said I wasn’t eligible for that option. I’m going to try e-mailing them to see if I have better luck. I can always just do my stays at Starwood hotels where I’m signed up for the equivalent of option 3, but right now I’m looking for lifetime nights & points which I don’t get through Starwood stays.

    • You may have to call few times to someone sign you up. They notate your account and will fix the bonus once the promo is over.

      • jmmarton

        MR phone representative claims that after completing the first three stays, I’ll receive an e-mail to sign up for one of the other two offers. Seems weird but I’ll try it. If I don’t receive an e-mail after my third stay after 1/15 I’ll just call back in again.

        • It has never worked that way previously and members were offered the two other choices listed above to register.

          • jmmarton

            Now when I log into my MR account and view my promotions I see that I am indeed signed up for option 2 (up to 45k total bonus points). Interesting. I guess I’ll find out in a few months, when I hit the # of stays, if I’m signed up properly.
