Marriott just released the MegaBonus 2013 offers for stays between February 1 and April 30, 2013. As has been the case with these Marriott bonus promotions, they have number of targeted versions that are dependent of your activity in the past. The options are exactly the same as on the fall 2012 MegaBonus that is still going on (at the time of writing this). Note that the registration deadline for this promo is on March 15, 2013.
Here are the options for the Marriott Rewards 2013 MegaBonus:
You can access the Marriott’s page for this promotion at MarriottRewards.com/MegaBonus2013, but you will need to be most likely logged in to your account before you can see it. Alternatively, you should find your targeted promotion by logging in to your Marriott Rewards and going to Promotion Central. The base version of this promotion that is open to all is the option number 1 above.
I was targeted for the free night certificate version of this promotion and it does work for me. If the targeted promotion doesn’t work for you, I have written a piece about how to get it changed. Marriott unofficially allows targeted promotions to be changed. I have done it by myself in the past.
Marriott has been very predictable with its MegaBonus promotions for years. I love the fact that they are announced always very early so that you can plan accordingly.
My personal choice for the past few years has always been the free night certificates. They don’t work well in the Americas or Europe due to category 1 to 4 limitation, but there are plenty of properties in the Middle East and Asia where you can use them.
