Marriott’s first MegaBonus promotion for the new year is finally here!
Signing up for the Marriott Megabonus 2017 promotion
You can officially register for the Megabonus promotion at Marriott’s site: Earn 2x points on your first 3 stays between January 16 and April 15, 2017. But you must register by March 15, 2017. Majority of the hotels are included in the promotion. You can read the complete terms and conditions here.
Stack it with Amex Offer to earn more!
You can use this offer twice for a total of 6,000 points. Most Marriott brands in the U.S. are included in this offer. Part of the terms of this offer is shown below. Please check your account for complete detail.
Comparing Marriott Megabonus to IHG Accelerate Promotion
If you are in the middle of hotel shopping and you don’t need Marriott nights for elite requalification, it is worth comparing this to your IHG accelerate promotion offer for Q1 2017. My IHG accelerate promotion is for a total of 35,000 points after 18 nights. I won’t even bother with it since I don’t have 18 nights of hotel stay planned in the next 3 months.
Compared to Marriott’s prior Megabonus promotions, this promotion is rather weak in my opinion. But free points is better than nothing. If you have Marriott stays coming up, you might as well register for this promotion. And don’t forget to stack it with the Amex offer!
