I just got my second MegaBonus offer:
10,000 points after 5 stays, plus another 1,000 points for each additional stay.
I got the same offer --- not something that I'd go out of my way to earn.
Same here. I'll probably end up with no more than 20,000 points total.
Still better than nothing, of course.
Im going with the Starwood offers I received first. Amounts to around 25,000 Star points. I'm surpised at how small the Marriott bonus is in comparison.
Mine showed up too. Same thing.
I received my 2nd offer as well. Same as above. I really do not want to property hop. Have not decided yet.
I'm going to finish my stays out here at Marriott, but if I end up with another 25 nights needed before the end of the year (likely...) I'm going to go SPG. Waaayyyyy more points on offer. Now time to get MR on the horn and get those interim stays counted. Speak up if you have any luck with that!
Got the same offer!
I'm not a mathmatician but it my calculations are correct the SPG promo is 50% stronger based on exactly 5 stays. I am Marriott 95% of the time but that presents a case to try out the SPG properties.
Unfortunately not if your are close to LT status and need to stay at Marriotts - hard to let 2x plus more points go by the waistside though
Receiving this was pretty disappointing. 1k points per stay? I got 1k points for the Twitter promo they had Sunday. I'll do a little property hopping, but won't max out. So far I have 6 stays scheduled through Thanksgiving, and already have two stays towards the 5 stays for 10k, so I'm looking at earning at least 16k points on 11 stays, and more depending on my December schedule. Not very "mega."
I'm a bit confused. I got the same stay based offer. Hoever in the detail text it says that I would get 10k points after 10 nights up to 50k points. So which is it?
Brill - I've had a quiet few weeks and I had my second stay this week (checked out Thursday 28th) so hopefully I'll get my second offer in the next few days. Free stay cert is already showing on my account. Looks like I need to research into the SPG equivalent - I've stuck with Marriott up until now but if they're promo's richer and you can transfer the points, seems like a no brainer.
Thanks for the updates everyone!
I guess my stays happened after whatever IT glitches and kinks were banged out. 2nd stay was Saturday, points and free night cert awarded on Tues, MegaBonus part deux unlocked on Wed - 10,000 points after 5 stays, plus another 1,000 points for each additional stay. Thanks to everyone who worked out the kinks by staying early - much appreciated!
