No Mega bonus?

My memory is fading as I get older, but isn't there typically 2 mega bonus promotions per year? I have not see one yet this year and it is the end of July. Did I miss something? Any news on when we will see the next one?

    I thought there were more than 2 per year (spring, summer & fall I recall).

     

    The summer one never happened.  Appeared to me that instead, they offered the chance for you to upgrade status by staying a certain # of nights in a certain time.  (i.e. stay 17 nights in 3 months, get upgraded to platinum)....did me no good, as I was already platinum..

     

    Was hoping for a fall promotion, which they should start advertising soon, but haven't seen anything.

    This is my first year with MR. I know there has been many discussions within various groups about this and the lack of promotions. There is always hope!

    There are normally 2 Mega Bonus promotions. The first usually runs February 1 to April 30. That one has come and gone for 2015. There is also one is the fall. It normally begins September 15 and runs to January 15. We should be seeing something about it soon.

     

    Over the past 5 or 6 years, there has been an additional promotion during the summer. It wasn't called a Mega Bonus, but it it acted essentially the same as one. Most years it run June 1 to August 31, though one year (2013, I think) it ran May 15 to September 2.

     

    We on Insiders had gotten so used to seeing a summer promo, that when it didn't happen this year, we were surprised , and disappointed , (and in a few cases, angry ).

     

    With August just around the corner, I would expect to see news of the fall Mega Bonus in the next couple weeks. Let's hope it's a good one.

    hendy1000,

     

    There was a spring MegaBonus, but not a Summer MegaBonus.

     

    I'm looking into more information around a Fall MegaBonus, and will update you, as well as the rest of the community, with what I find out!

    I just spoke with a Marriott Rewards rep who mentioned in passing that the Fall Mega Bonus will be introduced soon.  I'm happy to know that the Mega Bonus promotions haven't been done away with entirely, though if it is anything like the Spring Mega Bonus, it will be more like a Mini Bonus for me (if no more free nights certs. and with the previously rapid category increases anyway).    Better than a sharp stick in the eye.  If Marriott were offering the moon on a silver platter, it would no doubt mean that my stock accounts would be in sharp decline, so at the end of the day, "it all pays the same."

      Nothing for me yet - was hoping for some information on Fall Promo soon though....hopefully this one will start on September 1 (or sooner) since there was no promo in the summer instead of the normal 9/15 start date.

        I just called Marriott rewards. They stated registration for rewards fall promotion starts on the 19th. Won't. Wouldn't give me details on what the rewards promotions are though.

    I read a blog yesterday that it will be September 15 thru January 15th with registration on August 19th.  The assumption was that it would be similar to last year's Fall MegaBonus and with targeted levels based upon member's activity (pretty much what we have come to expect!!).
