Marriott International has rolled out a pair of point promotions for members of its Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty programs for winter trips.
Marriott Rewards’ bonus plan is called MegaBonus, and SPG’s is Great Weeks, Grand Weekends. They both apply for stays from January 16 through April 15, with a registration deadline of March 31.
Registered members of Marriott Rewards can earn 2,000 bonus points per stay, beginning with their second stay, plus another 1,000 points for staying on weekend nights (i.e., Friday and Saturday nights most places, Thursday and Friday nights in the Middle East and Egypt). There’s an earnings cap of 50,000 bonus points. The promotion includes the entire Marriott family of brands except ExecuStay, Executive Apartments and Vacation Club.
SPG members who register will earn double Starpoints for each stay, starting with the second, along with another 500 bonus Starpoints (the equivalent of 1,500 Rewards points) for stays over a weekend night. The SPG promotion has no limit on the number of bonus Starpoints that can be earned. Here’s a list of participating Starwood hotels.
