Earn Up To 45,000 Marriott Points Per Year With Marriott’s #RewardsPoints Social Media Program (First Campaign Launched)

Update: Marriott has launched their first campaign. You just need to reply to this tweet (with a linked account) saying what delicious dish you’d like to learn to cook. We will keep this page updated with the different campaigns. Hat tip to Michael W travels.

Marriott has been tinkering with offer members points for completing social media actions since 2014 and they have just unveiled their new program called #RewardsPoints (click here for direct link to new program).

How To Earn Points

Connecting Profiles

You’ll earn 250 points by profile you connect:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter

Follow Marriott

You’ll get 150 points for each Marriott profile you follow:

  • Twitter
  • Instagram

Campaigns

Marriott will then launch 3-4 new campaigns each month to let users earn up to the 45,000 point maximum annually. The first campaign is now out:

Our Verdict

How useful this program is really depends on what the campaigns are like, if we take the maximum of 45,000 points and assume 4 campaigns per month that means each campaign will be worth 930 points (I imagine there will actually be more like 45 campaigns across the year for a total of 1,000 points each but let’s see). If the campaigns are like follow one of the properties then it seems like great value, if they are tweet out with specific tweets for 20 points each then it’s probably a waste of time.

Once we start seeing the campaigns we will see how much we can automate as well, if it requires stuff like tweeting out for example then we could create a new Twitter account and then you could use If This Then That to automatically retweet anything we post. Even if you don’t value Marriott points remember that they transfer to SPG at a 3:1 ratio meaning you could earn a maximum of 15,000 SPG points through this promotion. I’ll add this to our list of free miles & points opportunities.

    Time to reactivate that instagram account I created last year to get 500 points.

  2. Austin says:

    Points post nearly instantly, checked my account 20 min after signing up and had 1k Marriott points.

    And looks like you can instantly transfer to SPG, too.

    They had something like this a couple of years ago and I earned a decent amount of points. Plus Marriott kept messing up and giving me thousands of extra points. I’ll definitely try this again.

  4. Chris M says:

    Can’t find where to connect my profiles. Anyone have a link?

    Easy 1,000 points. Posted the next day. Now I only need 14k to book the cheapest room in town! Haha.

    Before you connect your social profiles to Marriott account, please ensure that your Marriot account is configured to earn points… It will certainly link your account with profile, but you won’t get points.

    You also get an email indicating “Your Marriott Rewards account is configured to earn miles instead of points. Please change this in your Marriott Rewards account settings.”… not sure if you’d get points after changing the setting.

      I got that email and when I went to check my account, I had points as my preference. I’m gonna be mad if they don’t give me my points.

    • Alex says:

      Happened to me, changed it to points > disconnected twitter account then connected again. It’s been a couple days and have not received any points from twitter or instagram.

  9. P says:

    Got the 50 points 5x! Yaay.

  10. P says:

    Still working. Got another 50 points. 300 points total
