Marriott Hotels has a history of offering the same promotion season-after-season, year-after-year. But now Marriott is taking a walk on the wild side by making some changes to its seasonal promotion – well as wild as Marriott can get.
Their new promotion offers a few good changes albeit small such as extending the expiration date for their free night award to one year instead of 6 months. Oh and now you can earn 3 free night awards instead of 2. Unfortunately the point earning opportunity is less if you receive that type of offer. Let’s take a closer look at their new promotion.
