Just When I was thinking about canceling my Marriott Rewards Credit Card to make room for another offering from Chase, I received an e-mail last night that is making me reconsider...
An exclusive offer for Marriott Rewards® Credit Card holders
Enjoy 3 free nights at Maui’s Wailea Beach Marriott® Resort & Spa when you redeem for a 4-night stay in 2012, giving you 7 nights of oceanfront bliss.
For just 140,000 Marriott Rewards points, you’ll enjoy:
- 7 nights at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa
- $100 credit at Kumu Bar & Grill
Need more points? Earn points with every card purchase, with additional points earned at participating Marriott properties worldwide. Just a few points shy? You can also purchase up to 50,000 points a year.
Seems like a great deal to me since a week at the Wailea Marriott can easily go for $2500+ before taxes and resort fees. (The week of Christmas come in near $5K) You'll still be on the hook for the resort fees of course But for 140,000 Marriott points, I think I'm ok with that.
I've never actually stayed at the Marriott but I have been through the Hotel when staying down the street at the Grand Wailea. The lobby and public areas are incredibly nice and If I can figure out how to pick up another 70k points.
Here's a link to the Marriott Wailea Beach Resort Website
