    I may have missed some emails, but has anyone heard if Marriott stopped doing their promotions (i.e. stay 25 nights for X bonus points)?

    There was an email today about the upcoming mega bonus (reg starts 8/19), but no details.

    Would this survey count towards activity in MR account?

    I need to show activity in my MR account by dec 2015, or lose account, which I might just withdraw an award.

    Any ideas for activity? If survey works please send survey link.

    "
    [​IMG]
    Starting February 1, 2016, members who do not have qualifying activity in the prior 24 months will forfeit all accumulated points.

    If you have not engaged in qualifying activity since January 31, 2014, you have until January 31, 2016 to do so before the policy is enforced*.

    The following activities do not count toward maintaining an active status in the Marriott Rewards® program:

    • Gifting or transferring points
    • Receiving points as a gift or transfer
    • Earning points through social media programs, such as #MRPoints"

    Not sure if survey extends account expiration date.
    I completed it on my cell and then deleted it I expect the message will be in the mailbox on my laptop at home if the link is still valid I will post it here.

    Thanks, did the survey.

    Supposedly, this renews my account, thanks

    Found this on survey page.

    "Take this quick Marriott survey and you’ll find yourself with 100 free Marriott Rewards points. Remember that your points now expire after 24 months of qualifying activity, so if nothing else this will help extend the life of your points. - See more at: http://pointsmilesandmartinis.board...ts-for-20-second-survey/#sthash.Hc5J5oTd.dpuf"

    Marriott says not a good offer:
    "Thank you for taking the time to reach out to Marriott Customer Care today.

    The survey is not from a verified Marriott source. It appears to be a third-party, and Marriott cannot be responsible if that party does not give you points.

    Best Regards,

    James White
    Marriott Customer Care"


    Boarding area has yet to confirm the 3rd party offer works.

    Got this via e-mail the other day:

    "We Hope To See You Soon
    "John Smith", earn 2 free nights with just 4 stays. This limited-time offer is just for you. Stay four times in the next 3 months and receive 2 free nights. Here's how:
    • Register by 09/07/2015
    • Stay* at any of our 4,000 hotels between the day you register and 11/30/2015
    • Earn a free night certificate** valid at category 1-4 hotels after your 2nd stay
    • Earn another free night certificate after your 4th stay
    Make your getaway a reality with free nights."

    Free night cert is valid for 1 year.

    Receiver of e-mail is MR Gold and has had only 2 award stay in 2015. The link only worked for the receiver of the e-mail not other family members with same MR status.

    I didn't get any email, but I see the same promo in my account. Not useful, since I won't get near 15 nights (and they should know).

    Edited. Realized much later this is instead what I have. It looked similar, but not exactly. Pasted below from my profile's promotion page.

    My Fall/Winter Megabonus gives me 2x points starting with my 2nd stay!
    These bonuses are NOT Mega!
