Only one room per hotel or resort property is counted toward nights or stays.

Members electing to earn frequent flier loyalty program miles are not eligible for this promotion.

The offer cannot be transferred. Bonus Marriott Bonvoy points will be awarded to your membership account within ten days after the qualifying stay.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the Marriott Bonvoy frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Summary

If this is not the worst iteration of the promotions by Marriott Bonvoy over the years, it is close to it. I am disappointed by how weak it is as a promotion. A maximum of 2,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points may be earned — without knowing what will be unlocked in the future if the qualifications are met? That is initially no incentive for me.

At least this offer is not as bad as this similar MegaBonus promotion for the last quarter of 2017, through which you earned a free night instead of 2,000 bonus points and had to be vigilant about logging into your Marriott Rewards membership account and checking it, as you may not have received additional notification except through your membership account; and you then were required to register for the additional offer within two weeks from the date the additional offer became available. That seemed unnecessarily inconvenient to me and a way to offer something extra with a reasonably good possibility that the recipient might not have been able to take advantage of it in time, as no e-mail message was sent with the information — unlike this current promotion

Despite its shortcomings, I have already registered for this promotion, which consumed all of fewer than 30 seconds for me — but I will likely not take advantage of it.
