If you are not already a Marriott Rewards member, here is an easy way for you (and your family and friends) to sign up and earn a free stay.
Marriott Hotels is the biggest hotel chain in the world, with over 6500 properties, including The Ritz-Carlton.
Current offer: New Marriott Rewards members earn a free night after two paid stays
Earn a Free Night Award (worth up to 25,000 Marriott Rewards points) after making two paid stays at any Marriott Rewards hotel between 11 September 2018 and 28 January 2019. Existing members are ineligible for this promotion.
Note that a stay is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity. So you wanted to complete two stays at the same hotel, you would need to have a break of at least one night between the stays.
The Award is valid at any Category 1-4 property (the award chart goes up to Category 8). Most Marriott properties in Australia are Category 5 but there are still cheaper options in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth (search this table). You could also redeem the award at any eligible property overseas.
You could use this promotion to get a free night at the Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane
You will have one year to use the award once it is deposited into your account (which is after the second stay).
