Are These Promotions Good Deals?
These deals aren’t worth changing your travel plans for. But if you have upcoming stays with Marriott or Starwood, this is a nice surprise!
Regardless, I suggest registering anyway, because you never know when your plans will change.
Extra Marriott and Starwood points are a good thing. They have both become more valuable since the Marriott Starwood merger was announced. But make sure to take a look at other current hotel promotions to make sure there isn’t a deal that better fits your goals.
With the latest Marriott MegaBonus promotion, you can earn up to 3,000 Marriott points per stay, beginning with your second stay.
And the Starwood Great Weeks, Grand Weekends promotion will earn you double Starwood points per stay, starting with your second stay. You can also earn 500 bonus Starwood points per stay that includes a weekend night. But not all Starwood hotels are participating in the deal.
