Marriott Summer Promotion of Free Night Certificates or Bonus Marriott Rewards Points

2 Comments

The details of the Marriott summer promotion have now merged. As usually there are various offers based on your Marriott stays history for bonus points or free night certificates. The promotion starts on June 1st and ends of August 31st, 2012. You need to register for the promotion by June 30th, 2012. If you are an active Marriott Rewards member, you can find out the promotion that you are signed up for by singing to your Marriott Rewards account and going to the Promotion Central.

The default promotion for new Marriott Reward accounts is the free night certificate one.

Here are the different variations of the offer:

1. Max 3 free night certificates. One free night certificate up to category four for every two paid stays.

2. Maximum of 40000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after 25 paid nights. 20000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after 15 nights, an additional 10000 bonus points after 20 paid nights, and another 10000 bonus points after 25 nights.

3. Maximum of 15000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after staying at 4 different brands. 2500 Marriott Rewards bonus points after staying at 2 different Marriott brands, an additional 2500 bonus points after staying at 3 different Marriott brands, and additional 10000 bonus points after staying at 4 different Marriott brands.

4. Maximum of 15000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after 3 weekend stays. You will earn 5000 bonus Marriott Rewards bonus points after one weekend stay, an additional 5000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after your second weekend stay, and an additional 5000 Marriott Rewards bonus points after third weekend stay.

It is still unclear at the moment, if there is a separate promotion for those that collect airline miles. As always, you can switch the promotion that you are signed up for automatically by calling the Marriott Rewards customer service. They will manually notate your account and will issue the points or free night certificates at the end of the promotional period.

This is the first time that the free night certificates are valid for 12 months after their issuance. Previously they have been valid only for 6 months.

Which promotion to sign up for?

It depends of your goal. For my personal purposes, the stay 6 times get 3 free nights certificates for up to category 4 is the obvious choice. Just to note that the free night certificate promo is based on STAYS and not on nights.

If you do not have use for free night certificates that are only valid for category 4, then you need to choose one of the other three options.

For those that have 25 nights or more during the June 1st to August 31st time frame, the maximum of 40000 bonus Marriott Rewards bonus points is the obvious choice. You can use the points the anyway you like i.e. travel packages, and the points never expire.

If you don’t like the free night certificates but don’t quite have the minimum of 15 nights that would be required for the nights based promotion, your choice is then one of the other two promotions. One is based on the number of Marriott family of hotels brands you stay, and the other is based on number of weekend stays.
