Marriott just announced a new summer promotion launching June 1 and ending August 31, 2011. As with most Marriott promotions, your offer depends on your elite status/history with Marriott. I have 0 stays this year and no elite status and I was offered a free night at a category 1-4 hotel after each second paid stay- with a maximum of two free nights. Not terrible, but not nearly as lucrative as Starwood and Hyatt’s promotions, which allow for the earning of multiple free nights at high-end properties.
To see what offer you have, simply log-on to your marriott.com -> My account -> Promotion central and you should see a new promotion waiting.
Based on this Flyertalk thread, it looks like other people have been offered:
“Earn 20,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights + an extra 10,000 after 20 paid nights.”
“Earn 25,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights + an extra 15,000 after 25 paid nights.”
If you don’t like the promotion you have been targeted for, you may be able to change it if you call Marriott. Remember- it never hurts to ask.
The details of my offer:
Registration is required.
Marriott Rewards® members who register for this promotion by June 30, 2011, will earn one (1) free night award at a category 1-4 hotel after each second paid stay made between June 1, 2011, and August 31, 2011, at a participating Marriott® property.
Maximum two (2) free night awards earned with this promotion per member.
An earned free night award can be redeemed for a future stay at participating Marriott Rewards category 1-4 properties for one (1) free night between June 5, 2011, and December 31, 2011.
