Look like a great offer to do Marriott in style. Combine this with the fact that Marriott MegaBonus offers a free night category 1-4 certificate with two stays by April 30 (registration by March 31 required) and there is a good reason to stay and pay with Visa in April.

I have noticed in recent big prize hotel promotions that cash is a prize component to offset taxes if you don’t blow the $5,000 on something else first.

  1. Does that mean all FTU Seattle attendees staying at the Marriott in late April are eligible for this as long as they use their VISA card to pay for the Marriott stay?

  2. Only if you booked in April is the way I read the terms. I have two Marriott stays in Chicago next week that I do not think count as promotion eligible since I booked them in March.

    Good news is this greatly reduces the number of sweepstakes entries for people who book and stay in April.

  3. I have made hotel reservations 2 weeks ago at Residence Inn in Mettawa IL for April 26, 2014. Am I eligible to enter for this sweepstakes entry. If so, I just tried to submit my entry and I was requested to book again which I already did. Please advise if I should resubmit my reservations without duplication in booking my hotel stay. Thanks in advance.
