So, here's my big question. When does part 3 kick in?
My part 2 bonus was 15k points after 20 nights, plus extra 3k per night after (up to 25 nights). I just hit 20 nights last weekend. Should I now see part 3 or will that not show up until I reach 25 nights?
Looking at ramoneur's post, it looks like part 3, started for him on night 23. I know we're almost to the end of the promotion, but I have 5 nights booked (ending on 5/15). I'm expecting the 3k per nigh, but would be great if part 3 overlapped earning a few extra points.
Hi there bejacob,
Not all MegaBonus participants are solicited for a third offer. I have asked our team to look into this to clarify whether or not you can expect to receive a third offer. I'll get back to you via direct message to confirm.
Thanks AndrewT. Normally I'd wait a few days to see what happens, but I have 5 nights coming up starting tonight and it would be nice to get the extra 5k points if I'm eligible.
I ended up with only 1 free night certificate. The Megabonus I was in was based upon a large number of nights and I really don't start my business travel in earnest for another month....
Oh well, I got a free night for doing what I would have been doing anyways....
In the end it is all good.....
insertcoffee - Yup - hard to get anyone to listen to spring issues when it's August. Before you know it it'll be Fall Megabonus time. I agree with what's been pointed out by the serious fact checking folks on this site: MR has more bonus nights available than anyone else in a given year just about every year. Even when it seems they are being stingy. Exception would be last year and maybe more when they skipped summer bonuses period. Was glad to see all of the cage rattling or *something* got their attention, and they reinstated. With tip of the hat to bejacob and brightlybob to name a few...
Agreed dansplan. And with the economy steaming along, biz travelers back out filling planes and hotels, I appreciate the bonus opportunities there are. Wasn't sure if we'd get the summer promo or not, and while some lament its smaller scale, I'm happy to have the extra points in my Marriott 'wallet'--points which required no changes to plans I already had for stays.
And you're right-- we're just around the corner from seeing what Fall will bring. Hope my stars align properly this go-round. I seem to always have long stays during mega periods, or am in the wrong part of the world to take advantage.
insertcoffee keep in mind that depending on your status level, it's often possible to call the elite line and have them switch the offer you've received to one of the others. Not guaranteed, but it's worked in the past for many

Thanks for tagging us in, insertcoffee.
lakelands, I know this has been rather frustrating for you. I've provided all of the necessary contact information for our Customer Support teams via direct message and encourage you to reach out to them. Since there is a discrepancy in what our systems have you listed as registered for in the Spring MegaBonus and what you are saying you were offered, we would need to see a copy of the offer you were given to award eligible credit. Again, apologies for the inconvenience this has caused. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
