Anyone taking advantage of this?

Disclosure: I don’t really stay at Marriotts.  It isn’t anything against them.  We just never really built up any rapport between us, and by the time I got to know them, I already had other hotel chains.  I hope you understand, Marriott.  It’s not you, it’s me.  And Hyatt.

  1. I think the marketing guy was over medicated when they came up with this promotion. I get 500 bonus miles for each $100 gift card and 1000 bonus miles for each $250 gift card. So my choice is two $100 gift cards for 1000 points or a $250 card for 1000 points? =)

      Yes, there was something like this with Hyatt once too where I ended up paying for a $300 hotel stay with $25 gift certs (sorry guys!) because it made more sense to get $25 increments.

  2. Me! Just purchased mine.

    I wrote about how to earn up 11 miles per $1 spent last week.

    Definitely worth it if you have Marriott stays coming up. Also, remember to sign-up for Marriott’s MegaBonus to earn free nights after 2 stays
