Marriott Rewards has launched their latest MegaBonus called “Infinite Points” that is valid for stays between May 27 – September 4, 2017. Registration for this offer closes on August 30th.
Members can earn up to 4,000 bonus points for their stays starting from the second stay; 2,000 bonus points per stay and an additional 2,000 bonus points for each Marriott brand stayed at during the promotional period starting from the second stay/brand.
You can register for this offer on Marriott Rewards website here.
Note that some Marriott Rewards members commented that they were not able to register for this offer when I first wrote about it. If this is still the case, just drop me an email and I can forward it to appropriate level at Marriott Rewards for speedy resolution.
Here are the eligible 18 Marriott brands:
- JW Marriott
- Autograph Collection
- Marriott Executive Apartments (remember the minimum stay lenght)
- Marriott Vacation Club
- Gaylord Hotels
- AC Hotels
- Residence Inn
- SpringHill Suites
- Fairfield Inn
- TownPlace Suites
- Protea Hotels
Not sure why some members were reporting that they had some trouble registering for this offer. As I posted above, Marriott Rewards has promised to promptly resolve these issues. Just drop me an email and I will forward it to someone higher up….
This is the first time the MegaBonus has brand component thrown in. MegaBonuses have previously been based on either nights or stays but never on number of different Marriott 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 and brands, although not sure if the hassle is worth 2,000 points.
I have no issues staying at JW Marriott, Marriott, Renaissance, Ritz-Carlton, Autograph Collection and Courtyard brands during the offer period for 20,000 bonus points (brand and stay bonuses). Depends where I end up traveling in August, AC and Moxy bands could perhaps be possibility too.
