Marriott Rewards is about to soon launch their Summer 2017 MegaBonus that is valid for stays between May 27 – September 4, 2017, registration opens on May 15th and ends on August 30th.
Members will receive 2,000 bonus points per stay and an additional 2,000 bonus points for each Marriott brand stayed at during the promotional period both starting from the second stay/brand.
You can register for this offer here starting on May 15, 2017.
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent me a link to a post on FlyerTalk this past weekend (access here) where member had been emailed the promo info by Marriott Rewards representative. I have confirmed with Marriott Rewards that this is indeed their promotion for this summer.
Earning dates for this offer are from May 27, 2017 to September 4, 2017. If you enroll in this promotion, you will earn 2,000 bonus points for each paid stay, beginning with your second paid stay during the promotional period.
You may also earn an additional 2,000 bonus points by staying at different Marriott Rewards participating hotel brands. You will receive an additional 2,000 bonus points for each different brand that you stay in during the earning dates of the promotion, starting with the second brand.
I don’t remember Marriott Rewards having a promotion previously where some of the bonus points would have been tied to the number of brands visited.
The 2,000 bonus points for every stay starting from the second stay is a decent offer for those that have short and inexpensive stays. To maximize the bonus, one should have one night stays and switch hotels, although not sure if the hassle is worth 2,000 points.
The previous SPG promo was modeled after the Marriott Rewards one. I would assume that the SPG Summer promo is similar to this Marriott one. I guess that the question is whether they offer 500, 750 or 1,000 Starpoints bonus for every stay and brand visited started from the second stay and brand.
I have no issues staying at JW Marriott, Marriott, Renaissance, Ritz-Carlton and Courtyard brands during the offer period for 16,000 bonus points (brand and stay bonuses). AC and Moxy brands could be possibility as well.
