Last year I was at a party for the final night of the 2017 Marriott Omaha Business Council auction for Chirldren’s Miracle Network fundraiser. I borrowed a computer from the party host and successfully won three auction items for 9 hotel nights in Australia, Germany and Atlanta.
I am flying off to Atlanta next weekend for 3 nights in Atlanta that cost me $74 all-in.
Friday night, September 21, 2018, another party night with a different host when the 2018 Marriott Omaha Business Council auction ended. I decided not to bid this year and did not spend the party thinking about Marriott Hotels I might stay at over the next year for cheap.
On Saturday morning I checked the final bid prices for the 2018 fundraiser.
I was amazed to see the auction ended without a single bid for 2 nights in an ocean view room at San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino.
I would have likely bid $10, if I had been online checking the auction at closing time.
Loyalty Traveler – Marriott Rewards MBC online auction good deals. On September 13, I posted an article about this auction with current bids.

Apparently no love for Puerto Rico.
Next year there will likely be another Marriott Omaha Business Council auction for Children’s Miracle Network. This is still one of the best value opportunities to pick up a great hotel discount stay if you happen to be around one of these cities.
