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!
