Marriott Megabonus offers 5,000 points for two stays

Marriott San Francisco

The Marriott Megabonus is now entering the last half of the three month promotional opportunity to earn 5,000 bonus Marriott Rewards points after every other stay, beginning with the second stay.

Members can earn 25,000 Marriott Rewards points with 10 stays between February 15 and May 15. Registration for this promotion is required and can be linked from the Marriott Rewards homepage.

The value of this promotion is the low threshold for earning points at only 2 stays for a 5,000 point bonus. 5,000 points can generally be redeemed for at least $50 in value. I think of this promotion as an additional $25 added value per stay. The low cost of many Marriott brand hotels like Courtyard and Fairfield Inn at less than $100 in many locations makes this equivalent to a 25% or larger rebate per hotel stay.
