Marriott brings back the MegaBonus

As discussed [% 2489805 | | in a previous blog %], this is the season for especially generous hotel promotions, and therefore a terrific opportunity for travelers to rack up significant numbers of bonus points for hotel stays.

The second major upcoming hotel promotion to be announced is from Marriott, which is reprising its annual MegaBonus offer.

Between February 15 and May 15, Marriott Rewards members can earn 5,000 MegaBonus points for every second paid stay at participating Marriott hotels, up to a maximum of 25,000 bonus points during the promotion period.

In its news release, Marriott calls this year’s iteration of the MegaBonus promotion “its richest offer yet.” In 2006 and 2007, the bonus was 2,500 points for the second and subsequent stays, up to a maximum of 10,000 bonus points. So indeed, for those with multiple stays in their future, this represents the potential to earn more bonus points than in previous years.

NOTE: What I’ve described above is the default offer. Some Marriott Rewards members will receive personalized offers which differ somewhat.

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review.
