My Sunday night ritual these days involve a few things – a nice takeaway, putting the kids to bed, a cup of cocoa, the X Factor and bagging myself 1000 Marriott Rewards points!
Yes, via a current promo that is both strangely generous and incredibly easy to benefit from, Marriott Rewards are giving all participating members 1000 entirely free Marriott Rewards points EVERY Sunday.
If, like me, you prioritise SPG points over Marriott Rewards points, remember that you can transfer them across, at a rate of 1000 MR points to 333 SPG points.
SPG points are then convertible to airline miles at a very competitive conversion rate.
How to benefit
You simply need a Twitter account and (obviously) a Marriott Rewards account.
Once your Twitter account is set up, make sure it’s connected to your Marriott Rewards account (you’ll also get a bonus 250 MR points for doing so).
Then follow Marriott Rewards on Twitter.
Every Sunday at 6pm, Marriott Rewards will tweet a straightforward question.
You just reply to that tweet on Sunday night (by 1am on the Monday morning, technically) with the correct answer and the hashtag #RewardsPoints and within minutes, 1000 points will be added to your Marriott Rewards account. You don’t even have to go to the effort of googling the answer – there will be thousands of replies to the tweet already rather giving it away:
How long do you have to benefit?
As noted above, to benefit from each individual promo you need to respond by 1am on the night of the question. In terms of the wider offering of 1000 free Marriott Rewards (333 free SPG points) per week, we’re not altogether sure. We understand it may well run until February 2018 however, which would be fantastic. It’s a decent handful of points each time that could actually stack up into a nice little haul.
It’s not too late to start this, and as far as free points collection goes, this is as good as it gets.
