I have a few questions regarding the 2017 Spring Megabonus if I read descriptions correctly it can be a huge boon of points:
1. If the "stay" is the same as it was in previous years then 2 weeks in January if it is a continuous stay can of, say $100 per night at a non-RI property: 100x10=1000x50%= 1500x2(megabonus) = 3000 x 15 = 45,000?
2. If this is correct, then someone that splits the Jan15 - Mar 15 into three stays can get 60x3000 = 180,000
3 And still have another 30 nights for yet another 45,000
Which will result in approximately 225,000 points megaload at just a $100 per night.
MegaBonus is only paid on your base points and not your platinum 50% bonus, but you're on the right track (if you got the Promotion with the 45k max bonus for beyond first three stays). You are correct that stay remains the same definition (consecutive nights spent at the same hotel). Eat some meals there, stay the weekends, and buy some jewelry at the gift shops and away you go !
