A few times a year there is an auction that comes to my attention for great hotel deals. Here is an auction bidding opportunity over the next two days organized by the Omaha Marriott Business Council Children’s Miracle Network Fundraiser.
Bid for 64 Marriott deals in Omaha Children’s Network Fundraiser
There are 64 Marriott brand hotels in the auction. They are nearly all JW Marriott, Marriott, Renaissance and Autograph Collection hotels with a few Courtyards in the mix. Most of the hotels are in the USA, one in Montreal, a couple in the Caribbean with St. Thomas USVI and Aruba, and a few in Europe. Most hotels are for one or two night weekend stays, many with breakfast included. Some resorts even offer golf with the hotel stay certificate.
You need to register at Super Silent Auction to bid on these Marriott Hotel packages. Auction bids end Wednesday, December 17 at 4:00pm Central time zone (Omaha, NE). Bidding continues in 10-minute increments until no more bids are received. There is a $15 shipping fee attached to each hotel stay certificate.
Check certificate validity and blackout dates closely before you bid. One certificate I checked was good through December 20, 2015 while another hotel certificate expired March 31, 2015. Also, check closely for certificate blackout dates at some hotels.
Screenshots of the current bids for each hotel stay are shown below with 2 days, 7 hours left to bid.
There are some good value packages here for Marriott hotels. Best of all is your bid goes to charity in support of the Children’s Miracle Network while you can potentially land a great hotel discount rate at the same time.
Don’t expect to earn Marriott Rewards points on these certificate stays.
