Earn up to 45K Marriott Points through Social Media Interactions

Article By:

There’s lots of creative ways to earn reward points besides flying. Marriott has been trying to expand its social media footprint for a while now and it recently starting giving away points for interacting with them on social media. Here’s how it works:

First, link your Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts with your Marriott Rewards account. Marriott will give you 250 points per account you connect, allowing you to earn an easy 750 points. Then, follow Marriott Rewards on Twitter and Instagram to earn an addition 125 points per follow. That’ll get you a total of 1,000 Marriott points. I know, not exactly a game changer.

If you take a look at Marriott’s Twitter account, you’ll see that they offer periodic promotions. They’ll ask you to tweet something or answer a question and give you free points for participating. For example, last week they were giving away 50 points for telling them what’s the best concert you’ve been to and yesterday they were giving away 1,000 points for telling them how long an NFL football field is.

One interaction won’t get you much, but these things add up to a lot of points over time. You can earn up to 45,000 Marriott points per year through social media interactions. Also keep in mind that you can transfer points from Marriott to SPG at a 3:1 ratio, which unlocks many more creative ways to book free flights and hotels.
