Today Only: Earn 1,000 Free Marriott Rewards Points

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:

Where is the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Answer with #RewardsPoints before 8pm EDT on 10/15 and score 1,000 points if you get it right.

The answer is Canton, Ohio, so just make sure your accounts are linked, and that you Tweet something like the following at the @MarriottRewards Twitter account:

Canton, Ohio #RewardsPoints

If you do this correctly, you’ll get a response from @MarriottRewards saying the following:

You got it! Come back next week for another chance to score more .

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 EDT tonight!


  1. “How safe is linking the social media accounts with Marriott?”

    Given the plethora of recent disclosures that your cellphone data is literally tracked and sold to marketers on a constant basis some folks might want to think twice about this. Marketers and corporations aren’t dumb, and they are delighted to build composite profiles on you their customers aka users. What if you happened to post stuff about a negative experience with Corporation X? Or if you wrote something that Marriott decided was anti-social? No idea. But linking all your social profiles is definitely not a no-brained. Maybe it’s not worth the “free” $8 of points after all.

    “US telcos appear to be selling direct, non-anonymized, real-time access to consumer telephone data to third party services — not just federal law enforcement officials — who are then selling access to that data.”

  2. In my mind it isn’t Marriott that is the concern, its the company that is ‘powering’ this link When I look at the twitter page it says that by clicking you are authorizing it to make tweets on your behalf. HUH?

    To be safe, I am going to use my Trap Twitter. I need them points!
