In conjunction with their the MegaBonus promotion, Marriott is running the 29 Ways to Stay game.  It’s a contest to win a 2-night stay at each of the 29 Marriott brands.  Every day you play counts as an entry and there are other prizes available.

Previously, you could only win a single daily prize, but Marriott has updated the game and you can potentially win bonus points daily!

The contest runs from October 11 through November 8, 2018.  You can play once a day.

And Marriott has also made some improvements to their MegaBonus promotion.  You can now earn extra points for staying at a certain amount of different brands.

You Could Win 4 Nights at the Top-Notch St. Regis Bal Harbor – And That’s Not Even the Grand Prize!

Earn Free Marriott Points With The 29 Ways to Stay Game

End date:   November 8, 2018

Promotion dates:   October 11, 2018 to November 8, 2018

Important terms & restrictions:

  • Visit each day during the promotion dates for another chance to win
  • Grand prize is a free 2-night stay at each of the 29 brands owned by Marriott (total of 58 free nights)
  • Secondary prizes include a 4-night stay at one of the 29 hotel brands owned by Marriott

Promotion Link:   29 Ways To Stay

Good deal or not:   You can earn free points without needing to book any travel or make any purchases.  If nothing else, this is an easy way to keep your Marriott points from expiring.

You can win Marriott points every day you play, between 50 and 20,000 points.  This morning, team member Jasmin won 1,000 points, and Joseph won 50 points.

One lucky person will earn the grand prize, which is vouchers for free 2-night stays at each of the 29 brands now owned by Marriott.  This is worth over $30,000!  And if you’re a resident of the US, you’ll also get a $7,000 check to help defray the cost of taxes.  But you won’t get transportation to and from the hotels.  So that’s kind of a catch, especially when some brands, like St. Regis, don’t have many locations.

Even if you feel like grand prizes are a long shot for you, it is worth playing because the chances of earning free Marriott points is good.  If you play every day during the promotion, you’ll have 29 entries for the grand prize and secondary prize.  And you’ll be earning points all the while.

Secondary prizes are vouchers for 4-night stays at 1 of the Marriott brands.

Good Deal or Not:   This deal is okay, but not amazing.  If you already have travel plans with Marriott then it might be worth trying some new brands to earn the bonus points.

Marriott’s goal is to get you to visit hotels you don’t normally stay at.  So they are offering 1,000 extra bonus points (for a potential total of 3,000 per stay) for each brand you stay at during the promotion (with the exception of your first brand).

You will earn the same number of bonus points if you stay 2 nights or 14 nights.  So for folks planning long stays it might be better to see what other Marriott brands are in the area.  You could change hotel brands every 2 nights and maximize your bonus.  Or, if you’ve got longer stays planned, it might be better to skip this promotion altogether and look at Hyatt’s current promotion, which is more rewarding if you’ve got lots of hotel stays coming up.

If you’re willing to jump from hotel brand to hotel brand, you’ll get 10,000 bonus points after staying at 10 different brands during the promotion period or you can earn 29,000 Marriott bonus points if you stay at all 29 Marriott brands.

We always love free points, so if you already have a trip planned, then trying to hit a few different Marriott brands can be advantageous.
