Marriott Q2 Promo: 1 Free Night After 2 Stays

Marriott launched their Q2 promo called Unexpected Bonus (though I think they do this each year, so I’m not sure what’s unexpected about it…)

Stay twice at any Marriott property between May 15 – July 15, and you’ll get a certificate good for a free night stay at a Category 1-5 property worldwide, good for stays through September 2nd. I seem to remember that this was only good for categories 1-4 last year (is that right?). You can earn up to 2 free nights.

  1. Is this a targeted promo? I clicked on the link and logged in and got a message saying I didn’t qualify.

    Also, do you know if you have to stay at the same property twice or is it just 2 nights gets you 1 free?

    • It’s 2 stays, not 2 nights — so 1 stay for 2 nights does not count.

      That’s not a targeted link, but perhaps the promo is targeted? I didn’t think it was…

  2. Chris has the same question as I have: do you have to stay at the same property 2 times or do I just need 2 stays at any-old Marriott during this time to qualify?

    • Hello, Susan Blank (if that is your real name). You just have to stay at any Marriott family properties twice – it can be the same hotel twice, or 2 different hotels once.
