I’ve been late to the Marriott MegaBonus Fall 2017 game, it’s true. My travels and status strategy (or just personal pleasure) made me focus more on Hilton, Hyatt and Starwood stays for the last path months.
That being said, I had extra nights to book in Bangkok this weekend, so I’ve decided to « hotel hop » and get my 2 stays completed for the Marriott MegaBonus Fall 2017;
As you probably know already (and you also probably know about the next one!), you just had to complete 2 stays to get a free certificate for one night in a category 1 to 5 Marriott Hotel.
I had a look at the many Marriott properties in Bangkok (Hua Hin was shamelessly overpriced) and booked the Courtyard Marriott Bangkok, then the Bangkok Marriott Sukhumvit in the Thonglor / Ekkamai area, a neighborhood I love.
I will talk more about those hotels in dedicated articles, but I have been surprised to see how fast the stays were both credited and the MegaBonus validated – the 1st part at least, meaning getting a free night in a cat 1-5 hotel.
- Stay 1 : 16 to 17 december , Courtyard Bangkok, posted yesterday
- Stay 2: 17 to 18 (so we checked out yesterday!), posted today, along with the validation of the free night certificate
Now I’m really curious to see what extra offer I « unlock« , although I guess I will be more taking advantage of the next Marriott promotion starting mid-january.
That’s an easy way to boost your Marriott account – plus don’t forget to earn 1000 points every Sunday through @MarriottRewards Twitter account ! Was it fast for you ? What bonus did you unlock ?
