Marriott is once again offering free nights to loyalty program members. The program was last offered in the first quarter of this year.
Marriott Reward members can earn free night certificates as part of the MegaBonus promotion for staying in a participating hotel from September 15, 2013 to January 15,, 2014. For every two paid stays in any of the participating hotels, members earn one free night. Four paid stays will earn them two free nights, which is the maximum.
Marriott Hotel brands taking part include Courtyard, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Residence Inn, Renassiance Hotels, SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites, and the Marriott Vacation Club. Stays at the hotel chain’s luxury partner, Ritz-Carlton, will also be eligible
Using those free nights
After two qualifying stays, a free night will be credited to the member’s account within 5 business days after the second stay. They will then receive a certificate which is good for one year and can be used for a single or double occupancy standard room, including taxes, in any one of their category 1-5 hotels in the U.S. or overseas.
The awards are not transferable so they cannot be used as a gift. If members choose to earn miles they are not eligible for this promotion. Only one room per hotel is counted toward a member’s nights or stay.
To take advantage of the MegaBonus promotion you must be a member of the Marriott Rewards program. You can register or get more information on the hotels chain’s website, but you must do so before November 15to be eligible for this deal. Registration is free.
Once you are a member, you can earn points and redeem them with no blackout dates at 3,700 Marriott Hotels around the world. Marriott was recently named Top Hotel Loyalty Program by U.S. News & World Report.
