I want to stay in Marriott more than SPG. How can I register this program in Marriott?
Looks like you got a bit confused. This is a Marriott program, not SPG.
In order to register for it you need to go into your MR online account and click on 'Promotions'.
I got the same offer from SPG. double bonus for first 3 stay and 20 nights for 10K. I found that some members can have extention on the Q1 2017 Megabonus with 30K for 20 nights. I want to know about how to register this extention instead of living at SPG.
Certainly, it is nothing shown in my "Promotion" :~(
That's "wiretapping" type breaking news if someone actually can extend their MegaBonus time frame. What group we're you talking to that told you they got an extension, Marriott or SPGers?
Thanks for any follow up, I and millions of other megabonus players will be interested in how this plays out. OMG (and this is the very first time I've ever used this phrase - no kidding) if true (not if someone told alex, but if there really is an extension) now we'll have another 40,000 individual requests for carat to sign us up for!
Sorry that my English is not good and make miscommunication. Extention is a wrong wording here. I have the Q1 bonus is 3 double only. After completed the first 3 stays, some member can join the part II program of Q1 (which I wrongly used extention for part II) as the picture above. For those who can't find/get that program offer like me, they can do only stay 20 nights to SPG Instead of Marriott if they want to have incentive.
As I want to keep my platinum status this year in Marriott, so I beg carat to grant me the right to subscribe the 2nd part of Q1 program.
Sorry for any miscommunication made.
No sweat, anyone smart enough for more than one language, won't ever get a beef from me .
You're in good hands with carat. Best of luck toward maxing out.
Just to help to extend the promition you have to be targeted.- The second part is only by invitation. If you don t receive the e mail you will not be able to enter.- Same happens to me !! and I got this answer.
Thanks for all the helpful insight, fistuk, erc & monisame! We are looking into this for you, alexlihk and will circle back via direct message with clarity shortly.
Thanks for your sincerely support. I have switched to SPG for 20 night Q1 incentive program.
Hope that Marriott can have same incentive as SPG such that we can stay with the one we love to. It is no good to live in SPG to split the nights for Marriott lifetime count.
There are several versions of the Mega Bonus at Marriott.
Which member gets which offer is something that only a few of the mighty Marriott Gods above know the answer to. It involves PHD-level math equasions, information obtained through reading tea leaves, interpretation of smoke coming from fires around which ritual dances have been performed and probably the well-known IT algorithm called "randomizer".
You can try to call Marriott Rewards customer service and use the vocal version of "puppy eyes" to ask to get into the Cookies and cream with chocolate sauce and sprinkles and a curly wafer offer (mention that they might have to check in with brightlybob for deciphering this offer, or mention this Insiders topic). If they don't want to give it, call a few extra times to make sure there isn't a Las-Vegas factor in your chances for success.
Almost finished this program from SPG. Just start from 8 March after rejected by carat.
Just found that SPG is quite good
1. Only 25 stays for platinum until 2019
2. Gift if stay over 50, 75, 100 nights
3. SPG Executive Lounge is more comfortable than Marriott (platinum members only)
4. Better opportunities to upgrade suites
5. Thank you card if great to make friend with EL ladies.
6. More points (500 starpoints as welcome gift)...
Hope to keep them all after merge together.
Thanks for sharing, alexlihk! It is very neat to see how the SPG Bonus promotion works. Just wanted to clarify that Rewards members were given different offers and unfortunately, we were unable to switch the offer members were solicited with. Apologies for the frustration that had caused.
