Marriott Rewards today announced its summer 2014 promotion that is called “Getaway Bonus” and spans over Q2/Q3 from June 1 to August 31, 2014.
There are four different targeted options from double points to bonus points. There are no free night certificate options this time around.
You can access Marriott’s website for Getaway Bonus here.
Here are the four options:
1. Double points starting from the 2nd stay for a maximum bonus of 25,000 points. (This is the default option)
2. 25,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights + another 10,000 points after 20 paid nights for a total bonus of 35,000 points.
3. 20,000 bonus points after 12 paid nights + another 10,000 points after 18 paid nights for a total bonus of 30,000 points.
4. 35,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights + another 10,000 points after 25 paid nights for a total bonus of 45,000 points.
If the targeted promotion doesn’t work for you, I have written a piece about how to get it changed (you can access it here). Marriott unofficially allows targeted promotions to be changed. I have done it by myself in the past.
It is sad to see that the free night certificates are not an option this time around. You basically must spend $2,500 at a full service property (starting from your second stays) to get enough points for a free night at category 5 property.
The above four options are for the US accounts and sometimes Marriott has had different version(s) for international ones. Please leave a comment below or send me an email if your targeted offer was different.
Here are the terms and conditions of the double points offer:
*A ‘stay’ is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity.
