New here to Marriot. Moved from Hilton.
With Hilton it was easy to find their bonus programs for points. How do you all track / find Marriot / SPG bonus programs like mega bonus?
I'm having a hard time find current offers.
When you log into your Marriott account, you should see a button (about halfway down the page) that says "Promotions." Click on that to get to the Promotions page. Here is where you can sign up for the latest bonus (when available) and track your progress for current promotions.
There are a few ways to get to the Promotions page, but that's probably the easiest.
Here is the link to the Promotions Page: https://www.marriott.com/rewards/promotionCentral.mi
The current MegaBonus promotion just ended, but I suppose another one is just around the corner.
Starting with your third night, earn 750 bonus points on every night of every stay, up to 36,000 points. Register through June 30, 2018.
Stay at any of our participating hotels and resorts worldwide between April 16 and July 20, 2018
Another option would be at the bottom of the Promotions page, under the Discover Benefits section, there is a 'Marriott Rewards Offer' page where you can search by city, state, or country for 'deals'. At times they are worth pursuing points, saving money by booking in advance, or a helpful decision-maker between a few properties in a given area. As you have a higher status, more/better deals pop up for rates, points, miles, upgrades (to suites for example), or package deals (car rental, extended parking, local museum or event).
So is the mega bonus the only promotion Marriot runs?
Generally speaking, yes, though there are some exceptions.
In some years the summer promotion hasn't been called a MegaBonus, but the functionality was the same.
From time to time, Marriott has targeted specific members for special promotions. One of the more common types is to try to get someone who hasn't stayed at a Marriott property recently to come back by offering some sort of promo (something like stay twice to earn a free night). They also have been know to give new members a similar promotion. Those types of promotions are not open to all members.
For the rest of us, MegaBonus is usually it. Over the last few years, Marriott has run one in the spring (mid-January until April or May), another over the summer (roughly June to August/September) and one in the fall (mid-September to mid-January). Dates aren't always the same, which is why I hedged a little on describing the time frames. Three has been the norm, but there were a couple years where we only had two (spring and fall). It's hard to predict with 100% accuracy, but the fall MegaBonus has been pretty reliable over the last decade.
