Marriott Rewards free night offer for new members in Asia Pacific

New members who sign up for Marriott Rewards at the front desk at any of 97 hotels in Asia Pacific countries will earn a  category 1-4 free night certifcate after completing two stays within 120-days of enrollment. This offer is valid for new member enrollment through December 31, 2011.

The first hotel stay must be in Asia Pacific region and second qualifying stay may be anywhere worldwide.

Asia Pacific countries participating in this promotion:

  • Australia
  • China
  • Guam
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

Complete two stays within 120-days of enrollment and receive a free night certificate valid for a category 1-4 hotel night. Certificate is valid for six months from date of issue.

Loyalty Traveler analysis:

This is basically the same offer frequently provided by Marriott for one category 1 to 4 hotel free night certificate after two stays. This Asia Pacific offer allows 120-days from enrollment to complete two stays and theoretically can be completed with two stays as late as the end of April 2012 for the new member who signs up late December 2011.

As with all hotel loyalty promotions, good advice is not to wait until the last minute to sign up since these promotions can be withdrawn early.

I searched and did not locate a Marriott Rewards link to this offer, but it has been reported in a couple of online business magazines this week.
