Marriott Rewards has been giving away free points for the entire football season through social media. In order to take advantage of this, you’ll need to link your Marriott Rewards account to your social media accounts here. You can earn up to 1,000 bonus Marriott Rewards points just for doing that — you get 750 Marriott Rewards points for connecting your Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, and 250 bonus points for following Marriott Rewards on Twitter and Instagram.
Once your accounts are connected, you can earn bonus points every Sunday during the football season. Today you can earn bonus points for answering the following:

The answer is 1999, so just make sure your accounts are linked, and that you Tweet something like the following at the @MarriottRewards Twitter account:
If you do this correctly, you’ll get a response from @MarriottRewards saying the following:
You got it! Your points will post in 24 hours. Come back next week for another chance to score.
It could take a couple of hours to receive that message, and then the points should post shortly after that.
I value Marriott Rewards points at ~0.8 cents each, so that’s $8 worth of points just for a few seconds worth of work, which is an absolute no brainer. You can also convert Marriott Rewards points into Starpoints at a 3:1 ratio, so this is also the equivalent of ~333 Starpoints.
Be sure you take advantage of this before 8PM EST tonight!
