    mattress run?

  • Points With a Crew May 29, 2014

    Yeah but even a mattress run (unless it was a mistake deal) seems to not provide a ton of value for a Category 1-5 night. I mean I’m sure there are some nice Cat 5s out there, but 2 paid nights at a Marriott are going to run at least ~$150, no?

  • Ric Garrido May 29, 2014

    There are far too few big price category 5 hotels after the last two year’s upward movement of hotels. This is more of a reasonable alternative when staying at hotels to choose Marriott for a good rebate as a new member.

    When the Megabonus was giving Category 1-4 certificates, this promotion stacked with the Megabonus earning 2 certificates after 2 stays.

  • Ric Garrido May 29, 2014

    @Katherine – good point. This offer should be stackable with double points offer. MegaBonus will likely return in mid-September and Marriott is good about advance notice of promotions so we might know by mid-August if and when the MegaBonus promotion will start.
