I have been really bothered by how horrid the bonus plans for MegaBonus have been recently plus the exceptional number of nights required. Ignoring how much better SPG is about promotions.. here is a Marriott brand Ritz Carlton giving 10,000 bonus points per night if you stay 10 nights. I stayed 20 nights with MegaBonus and got 30,000 points. Can I have my last mega bonus match the RC promotion? By this logic I would have 100,000 points in half the time.
You can switch between Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards accounts just calling the customer service. The account is practically the same.
Here’s how the bonus points stack up:
– 4 nights 10,000 bonus points
– 6 nights 20,000 bonus points (cumulative bonus 30,000)
– 8 nights 30,000 bonus points (cumulative bonus 60,000)
– 10 nights 40,000 bonus points (cumulative bonus 100,000)
Did you spend those 20 nights at a participating Ritz-Carlton? I'm pretty certain that the exclusion of "Partner Hotels" in the terms and conditions covers all Marriott brands and it pretty clearly restricts the bonus to only nights at participating Ritz-Carlton hotels. Great promo if you stay at RC frequently, but not comparable to the MegaBonus for the vast majority who do not frequent the RC brand.
I Just saw this offer a while ago at work, im planing on taking my GF to Puerto Rico for our anniversary this September and want to stay in Ritz.. I was reading the terms and it states that marriott user under the marriott rewards do not qualify for this offer only Ritz Carlton Rewards users do..
tomorrow at work i will call and ask if i qualify since i have the ritz credit card yet my main rewards account is marriott..
I called Ritz Carlton Rewards and asked about the promo, at first the CSR told me i do not qualify for the offer due to the reason that i have a Marriott Rewards account.
Then I told her "even if i have the Ritz cc?"
She asked me when i was given the card, after that she went over my account and told me that she will do the offer manually because i am a new card holder.
so now i have the offer plus on top of that i will also get 20K for just having the RCRCC
-- I later logged in into my account and now my account was moved to ritz, hopefully i can change back after im done with the offer..
Wow - I'm going to see if it's too late to get in or at least switch over to RC when the next one shows up since I have the card, etc. Thanks greenit
