I am a little late in writing about the Marriott Rewards Summer promotion. This was purely due to a lack of excitement on my part, to be honest!
It is a very simple one, although not letting you earn the bonus until your second stay during the promotional period is just petty I always feel.
Here is a summary of the offer, which has the catchy name of ‘Global Promotion’:
Valid for stays between 24th May and 5th September
Registration is required via this page
You will earn 2,000 bonus Marriott Rewards points per stay (note, stay and not per night)
You only receive bonus points from your second stay during the promotional period
The maximum bonus is 10,000 points
You will also be entered into a competition with every stay to win one of 100 prizes of 100,000 Marriott points.
I tend to value a Marriott Rewards point at 0.5p. This means that your bonus is worth £10 per stay. If you are doing a lot of one night stays then this is not too bad, but if you are staying 3-4 nights at a time then you will definitely find better value with competing chains. IHG’s Accelerate promotion is still the one to beat this Summer.
You can sign up for ‘Global Promotion’ via this page. It does no harm to register even if you don’t have any Marriott stays planned at the moment.
