Crappy implementation

Noticed that the mega bonus program page on the website but when tried to register, website shows the following message:


We’re sorry, but there was an error in directing you to this promotion.

The reason for this error could be:

  • You’re trying to access a miles promotion and are a points-earner, or vice versa
  • You are not eligible for this promotion
  • This promotion has expired

Updating your earning preference is fast and easy; simply sign into your account. For all other issues, please contact Marriott Rewards Customer Support.


Then I called the phone number to find that message on the phone says that there is no promotion or it is expired!!

Then i came to this forum and found that several have the same problem.  DM to support solves this but why does Marriott launch a promotion that creates very frustrating customers?  And while i am on this, when can they find a way to get points posted on the account without calling them?  I have repeated problems with foreign hotels.  In this day and age, a high school graduate can fix these issues on the website!
