My wife is a Silver....I'm Platinum. She regularly gets mega bonus offers "stay 2 nights...get 1 night free after 2nd paid stay." Platinums, on the other hand, have to stay 15 nights to get 25,000 points and and addition 5 nights to get up to 20 nights to earn 40,000 points. Is it possible for Platinums to be able to take advantage of the Silver mega bonus offers?
I agree, instead of being rewarded for our loyalty, we're punished because MR knows we stay here a lot. I'm really disappointed with that choice. As many nights a year that I stay, as a Platinum Premier, we should be getting more bonuses than anyone, it really stinks. This is why I venture over to other hotels when they have better bonus features. I did 180+ nights with Marriott last year, would have been well over 200 if they included us in all the bonus plans.
You can call Marriott Rewards and choose which Mega-Bonus you want. Here are your choices:
It is your choice and they will help you. They default to the one that most fits your travel patterns. That is, if you are Platinum or Platinum Premier, you get defaulted to number 4 because you spend a ridiculous amount of nights in hotels, during the year. But you can change any time you wish.
I hope this helps.
