UPDATE: Marriott Rewards Free Night Awards (Max 35,000 Points) After Two Stays October 15 – December 31, 2018 (Posted)


Marriott Rewards in October sent out emails to select members offering them a free night certificate (max 35,000 points) after two stays between October 15 – December 31, 2018.

Marriott Rewards Free Night After Two Stays October 15 - December 31 2018

The offer only required registration and two stays between the valid promotional dates at any Marriott brands excluding ExecuStay and Executive Apartments. I completed the stays and the cert promptly posted to my account. 

You can try accessing this offer on Marriott’s website here, here and here.

Seems to be tracking just fine.


Easy free night cert after two stays for accounts that were newly signed up and were targeted this offer. I guess that this must be a rolling promotion. Note that this was not the promo that requires ones to sign up for a new account.

I could only get this promo page to show up after I logged in on my account that had received the email. Not sure how common this offer is and if it can be “extended” to non-targeted accounts too like the one free night offer earlier this year (read more here).

Here are the terms and conditions of this promotions:

Marriott Rewards members who register for this promotion by October 31, 2018 will earn a Free Night Award (redeemable for up to 35,000 points) after their 2nd eligible paid stay during the earning period.

Free Night Awards will be added to the member’s account within 3–5 business days after the second qualifying stay and are valid for 6 months from the date of issuance. Free Night Awards can be redeemed for a standard room type for one night with a redemption level at or under 35,000 points (or for a studio or one-bedroom at Residence Inn®, TownePlace Suites® and Element®). A ‘stay’ is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity.
