Hotels are full and hotel promotions are less generous. But since we’re past the packed summer months, with kids back in school, we at least do have hotel promotions. Marriott is now out with theirs for stays between September 21 and December 15. Registration required.
- 2000 bonus points per eligible stay, starting with the second stay
- Plus co-brand cardmembers earn 2000 bonus points per eligible stay at a different brand, starting with the second brand
This is remarkably ungenerous. 2000 points is worth about $12. And you only get that beginning with your second stay during the promotion period. It’s better for short stays at cheap properties, of course. In my view it’s weaker than other weak current offers,
- Hilton is offering double points starting with the first stay plus 2000 points for stays that end Monday through Friday.
- Hyatt is offering double points on stays of 2 or more nights
You should register now – while the offer is in front of you, so you don’t forget and in case you happen to have any Marriott stays. You’ll never remember to come back and do it later.
