Marriott Rewards Megabonus

Interested in earning a free hotel night? You can earn up to 3 free hotel nights as part of the Marriott Rewards Megabonus 2013 promotion.

When you stay twice at a participating Marriott hotel during February 1 – April 30, 2013, you can earn a free night after your second paid stay.

A maximum of 3 free nights can be earned during the Marriott Rewards Megabonus promotion.

3 Easy Steps to Marriott Rewards Megabonus 2013:

  1. Register for the Marriott Rewards Megabonus promotion or call 1-888-MARRIOTT (1-888-627-7468) by March 15, 2013
  2. Stay twice at a participating Marriott hotel between February 1 – April 30, 2013
  3. Earn 1 free night after your second stay

Is this worthy of a mattress run?

Possibly, depending on if you can find several inexpensive Marriott hotel stays to earn a free night award.  And if you were planning on using the free night award at a more expensive Category 4 hotel.

Summary of the fine print:

  • Registration is required and must be completed by March 15, 2013
  • Eligibility dates are February 1 – April 30, 2013
  • Only paid stays qualify
  • Maximum of 1 room per hotel will qualify for promotion

  • Free night awards at not transferable nor can be given as a gift
  • Free night award will expire 1 year after issued
  • Free night award will be added to Marriott Reward account within 3-5 business days post second stay

Are you planning any Marriott stays to take advantage of the Marriott Rewards Megabonus 2013 promotion?

I’m registered because I found it’s best to register for every promotion especially if your travel plans are flexible.  I don’t think I’ll do a mattress run but if a Marriott hotel figures into my travel plans, at least I’ve registered.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.

    Do you think it is worth cancelling the hotel stay at the up coming conference in April to stay at 2 different Marriott close by which is cheaper and get a free night stay. Been to many conferences and its so much easier stay at the hotel of the conference.

    Hi Robert,

    It’s definitely easier to stay at the conference hotel. Booking the host hotel also helps out FTU.

    With the cost to get to the host hotel from the Marriott’s if it still comes up cheaper and there’s a Cat 1 – 4 hotel that you planned on staying at with the free night, it might be a consideration.
