Marriott is offering 2,000 US Airways miles per stay at JW Marriott,®  Renaissance® Hotels or Marriott Hotels & Resorts. Book by October 31, 2011 and stay by December 26, 2011. 10,000 max bonus miles can be earned with this promotion, so I suggest switching back to Marriott points once you earn the maximum on this bonus.

You must choose to bank your Marriott stay to US Airways, which means you forego 10x Marriott points per dollar, but in my opinion 2,000 US Airways miles are worth far more than Marriott points, unless you have a long and expensive stay. This promotion is valid on one night stays and it will count towards activity in the Grand Slam promotion (which starts September 14 – November 14, 2011 and I will be writing more about this coming week).

Even if you don’t fly US Airways, you can use their miles on all 27 Star Alliance members (like Swiss, Lufthansa, Continental/United and Singapore) and I wrote a quick guide to maximizing Dividend Miles here.

Hat tip to TPG Twitter follower Promo Jake for the tip!

    Agree with you 2000miles per night > points per night. But if you resister 2 stay get 1 free tier 1-4 night, how to evaluate these 2 benefits?

  • MJLouise

    Be sure to check the list at the site linked above, not all Marriotts are participating :(

  • Tomowm

    Not many properties to choose from. Only selected properties unfortunately. Otherwise it is a great promo.

    A list for the participating properties can be found here:

    Regarding the Megabonus and this promo, i personally intend to finish the megabonus and then switch to miles (i have already registered for both). ;-)

  • Sterling

    So if I opt for the US Airways miles, does that mean the stay does not count towards the two Marriott promotions going on? (free night for 2 stays and 5000 bonus points for every 2nd stay)

  • Nikolaos

    Per their term and conditions, you will definitely won’t get the free night. For the 5000 bonus points, i don’t know! Do you have a link for this promo??

  • Alexander Onishchenko

    you can switch between megabonus and air miles offers. For example, I changed earning preference to USair miles, will do 5 one night stays (to get 10000 miles), then will switch my earning preference to delta miles for “more stays, more miles” promotion, and whenever I have 2+ days stays, I’ll switch earning preference to points to work towards the megabonus offer

  • Alexander Onishchenko

    your nights/stay only qualify for either megabonus or mile earning offers. you cannot get both with the same stays.

    Stayed at Washington Dulles Marriott Suites last weekend for 1 night, paid $80 with tax and got 2000 bonus points for the grand slam promotion (hopefully a hit as well). Also, I paid the AAA rate if it helps.
