Marriott is offering a free BlackBerry 7290 when you book a room on the Marriott hotel site.  You pay $150 bucks up front, commit to a 2 year data and voice plan from Cingular that will run you around $75 a month, and pay a $36 activation fee.

You will receive a $150 mail-in rebate with your BlackBerry 7290 which you should get a check for after about 6 weeks.  The 7290 costs about $350 normally so this is a pretty good deal if you were on the market for a BlackBerry anyway and want to use Cingular.

The voice and data plan includes…

  • Unlimited email
  • 450 anytime minutes
  • 5000 night and weekend minutes
  • Unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling
