Over the weekend, I got an email from Marriott with the subject line "Celebrate Your Birthday With a Free Night " Contained within was this
So I registered. It now shows in my promotions. Here are the details.
Celebrate your birthday with a free night.
- Stay One time between the day you register and 03/31/17. Your stay must be 3 or more nights and include a Friday or Saturday
- Earn a free night certificate for a future stay
- Use your free night certificate at any category 1-5 hotel
Happy birthday, and happy travels!
Treat yourself to a stay during your birthday month and we’ll gift you a free night certificate for a future stay.
Naturally stays on points don't count, which is a minor bummer as I have two 5-nights points stays in March, both which include a Friday and Saturday. I'm not sure if trying to squeeze in a 3 night stay in the next 6 weeks will be worth it for another category 1-5 cert (just got one from my CC this month).
Now I'm curious. Does this replace the elite night birthday credit we've seen in years past?
I guess I'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out.
Has anyone else seen this? Obviously, only those with birthdays in January-March would have been targeted so far.
