Yesterday, I wrote about Starwood Preferred Guest’s first promotion in 2018 called, SPG Great Weeks, Grand Weekends. Marriott Rewards, now a sister company, has also shared the details of their first 2018 promotion, blandly named Marriott MegaBonus yet again.
Marriott’s first MegaBonus in 2018 will allow members to earn bonus points beginning from their second stay. This round of MegaBonus will give Marriott Rewards members an opportunity to earn:
- 2,000 bonus points per stay from the second stay onwards
- Additional 1,000 bonus points on weekend night stays
Just like the SPG offer, weekend nights include Friday and Saturday nights and include Thursday and Friday nights in the Middle East. This offer is valid for all stays from January 16 through April 15, 2018, and you must register by March 31, 2018.
The maximum number of points that can be earned through this offer is capped at 50,000 bonus points per account. 50,000 points are substantial. It can get a free night at any of Marriott’s top-tier Category 9 hotel like the London Marriott Hotel Park Lane where we redeemed a stay this summer. Alternatively, it can earn you 2 nights at the JW Marriott in Bengaluru and JW Marriott Sahar in Mumbai
My take is that you should register for the MegaBonus promotion right away even if you don’t have any stay plans next year. It’s easy to forget so best to register and forget about. If you do make stays at Marriott hotels next year you’ll have extra points coming your way.
If you don’t have a Marriott Rewards account, I’d suggest you sign up now. Ajay will be happy to send you his referral link and you can earn extra 2,000 bonus points simultaneously for your first 5 stays.
Are you a Marriott Rewards member and have you registered for the MegaBonus yet?
