UPDATE: Marriott Rewards MegaBonus “Stay Twice Get A Free Night” For Stays September 12 – January 15, 2018 (Register By November 30) – Registration Issues?


Marriott Rewards launched on Wednesday their Fall 2017 MegaBonus that is called “Stay Twice Get a Free Night” valid for stays between September 12 – January 15, 2018. This offer seems to have same registration issue for some members (myself included) as their previous ones.

Marriott Rewards Promo Registration Issue Update

Members who are able to register for this promotion by November 30, 2017, will get category 1 – 5 free night certificate after two stays. Members may then be presented additional offers 2 to 3 days after the second qualifying stay has posted.

You can access and register for this offer on Marriott’s website here.

Note that the promotional free night certificate is valid for 6 months from the date of issuance. You must register for the additional offer within two weeks after completing the second stay.

Here’s the error message that I received:

Marriott Rewards Promo Registration Issue

What you can do to sign up if website returns an error message:

  1. Contact Marriott Rewards by phone, email or send them a Tweet. Customer service can add this promo to your account.
  2. You can drop me an email and I can forward this to Marriott Rewards for action.


Not sure why Marriott Rewards has not been able to fix this promo sign up issue that has been on-going already for a while? Customer service can sign up manually when the website returns this annoying error message.
