Marriott MegaBonus Returns

In my Christmas Day post on hotel bonuses, I noted that I wasn’t aware of what Marriott was offering.

Carol emails to let me know that they’ve got their ‘MegaBonus’ back up and running (you’ll be prompted to log into your account in order to see the details, and registration is required to earn the bonus).

The offer is 2,500 points for every paid stay with Marriott, starting with your second stay, between February 1 and April 30, 2009 — up to 25,000 points maximum for the promotion. And of course you have to be choosing to earn Marriott points instead of airline miles in order to earn the Marriott points bonus.

Update: As pointed out in the comments — and I should know this is how Marriott does it! — different members will receive different promotional offers, hence the need to log in to see yours. Details of the different offers can be found in this Flyertalk thread.
