i believe i have this offer too. but the one i posted is much better than this offer. the 20 paid nights earned only 55K points = to 1 or 2 nites free isn't much of a deal.

Thanks OP, worked for me. Going Marriott this year anyway so this will help.

i copied directly from Marriott page when u click on my linkytmoo link. it is shown category 1-4 and earned up to 3 free nites with exact dates as yours. where did you get yours?

I actually got the exact same as victorb, by clicking the link in your OP. It must vary by acct.

jd2010 said:   I actually got the exact same as victorb, by clicking the link in your OP. It must vary by acct.

It does, and you can try calling and getting swapped to a different offer if you think a different one may be better for you. I know some people aren't a fan of the free night stays because they are certs that are only good for cat 1-4 rooms, and would rather have points to blow on a nicer property, or vice versa.

i preferred getting the nites free instead of points because most of my stays are 1 or 2 nites so i earned the free nite faster. plus i stay at Residence Inn
by Marriott most of the time near the airport. they don't charge for parking, free internet, free hot breakfast, and incredible low rates ($99/nite for irvine - cat. 4) whereas hotels across the street charge $15/day for parking, $10 for internet and no free breakfast. and their rates are much higher.

i got promotion unavailable?

Can the free nites be redeemed later?

wondering if they would allow me to check out and check back in each day so it counts my 5 days of stays as 5 days as oppose to 1 stay.

apkesh said:   wondering if they would allow me to check out and check back in each day so it counts my 5 days of stays as 5 days as oppose to 1 stay.

Nope, but you can stay across the street at a diff Marriott and hop back and forth. This is typically what I do when Im on the road and bonus chasing.

If it shows unavailable, switch your earning preference in your profile from airline mileage to points. Then you can see this one.

i don't think you can combine promos because each promo has their own link for you to book thru.

I've been staying at Marriott since Feb 10'th. It'll be 95 days when I check out. I could not get any deal since I cannot check out and check in (no taxes after 30'th day in OH). E-mail did not work..I received a cold response.I called to complaint and they gave me 50K points with this promotion

50k is only two or 3 nights

I having difficulty redeeming certificates from last promotion on line. No location to enter certificate. I will have to call in the redemption.

I would have checked out and moved if need be to another Marriott propert

If you don't have a Chase Marriott credit card, you should consider applying ASAP as it may take up to 30 days to arrive.
The hotel you're staying at may even refund to original credit card(s) and re-charge to the Marriott card.

I was in a similar situation a couple years ago, staying 45+ days, and the Residence Inn
I stayed at did this for me after the card arrived.
With all the bonus points, etc, I had something like 120K points in addition to the 50-70K that came with approval, and a couple additional free night credited for calling and manipulating.

this is a targeted offer, regardless if you switch your earning to points instead of miles.

unixadmin said:   I having difficulty redeeming certificates from last promotion on line. No location to enter certificate. I will have to call in the redemption.
There is no location to enter certificate details. You just choose "redeem points" while reserving and then choose the certificate.

unixadmin said:   I having difficulty redeeming certificates from last promotion on line. No location to enter certificate. I will have to call in the redemption.

I called to redeem last year.

Heads-up: be sure to track your rewards as on last promo which ended 4/30, I did 3 stays of 2 to 3 nights and only received voucher for 1 free night stay (but system says I got 3 free nights). Going to call to make sure get 2 more free nights.

By far the best hotel reward program though and they seem to continue this thru out the year (also got 1 night each from Feb-April and summer 2012 programs). It expires in a year.

You got to fully check out. That's what I did last year - stayed in Marriott 2 nights, checked out and checked in for another 2 nights. Yeah pain in the behind. I think max limit is 6 free nights over 3-month promotion.

I thought one gets 2 free nights if stayed for 4 nights - WRONG. So to anyone who wants to maximize - be sure to check out after 2 nights and check in again for 2 nights to get 2 free nights.

it depends on the hotel too. most of the time, check out and check back in the same place the same day will not work. best is to check in close by hotels to maximize free nites if you're staying more than 1 nite.

Thanks linrick! I hadn't noticed that the last promo had ended and a new one started. I don't travel for work anymore so I don't pay much attention to these. I had totally forgotten that I signed up for the last promo and I just happened to pick up a free night when I went out of town last weekend. I wouldn't have noticed I had that certificate in my account for a while had it not been for signing up for this promo, so that was a nice bonus for my day!

My experience has been that back-to-back stays count as one stay only. You need a night's gap between stays.

bozo007 said:   My experience has been that back-to-back stays count as one stay only. You need a night's gap between stays.

AT THE SAME HOTEL. Back to back stays are fine if you change hotels. I used to do it all the time. You just need to understand the difference between a NIGHT and a STAY.

Agreed

How does this work?

Stay twice at any participating hotel between May 15 and September 2, 2013
Earn one free night after each second paid stay, up to two free nights

If I'm going to stay for 2 nights I'll have to check out after one night and check back in another one to meet "twice" requirement?

Yes.

Thanks for the reply and the heads up. I only got 1 voucher when I expected 2.

FWIW, probably obvious to everyone but me --

If your profile is set up to earn airline miles rather than Marriott points (I don't stay at M properties very often), you can't register for this promo. But I changed my profile from miles to points, and was able to register for the promo.

Thanks, op.

I disagree with "View". I have used both promotions several times in the past. 50,000 points for many more stays nets you 2 nights free at most Marriotts. Whereas this promotion nets you three free nights for 6 stays.
