Marriott Pointsalooza: 450,000 points in 9 blogger giveaways this week

Marriott is going all out with 50,000 points giveaways to travel bloggers in support of their “What’s Your Travel Type?” Sweepstakes. There are good odds for you to pick up one of these prizes by playing the Marriott Facebook game and then posting your travel type in the comments of these nine travel blogs for a chance to win 50,000 points this week.

Each blog is operating their own giveaway with their own rules.

Reader and travel blogger Giddy for Points posted a comment on Loyalty Traveler Friday listing eight travel blog giveaways for 50,000 Marriott Rewards points. On Saturday Mommy Points also posted a 50,000 points giveaway making nine blogs available for sweepstakes entries to win points.

Here are links to the travel blogs and the number of comments as of 8am Eastern time Sunday, August 26. The entry deadline is also provided for these travel blog sweepstakes.

Million Mile Secrets – 991 comments. Entry deadline: Sunday, August 26 at 11:59pm Central time.

Seattle’s Travels – 51 comments. Entry deadline: Monday, August 27 at 11:59pm (I assume Pacific time zone?).

A Girl Worth Saving – 103 comments. Entry deadline: Wednesday, August 29 at 9:00pm Pacific time zone.

Mommy Points – 294 comments. Entry deadline: Thursday, August 30 at 11:59 pm Central time zone.

My Itchy Travel Feet – 288 comments. Entry deadline: Thursday, August 30 at 11:00pm Mountain time zone.

Kelly Stilwell – Virtually Yours – 34 comments. Entry deadline: Friday, August 31, no time listed.

The Road Forks – 146 comments. Entry deadline: Friday, August 31 at midnight eastern time zone.

The Travel Mom – Entries are not disclosed. Entry deadline: Friday, August 31 at midnight eastern time zone. This blog is a major source of giveaways.

There are probably even more travel blogs giving away 50,000 points this week.

A sincere thank you to Elena Garcia at Giddy for Points blog for compiling the list of Marriott points giveaways on her blog and leaving a comment on Loyalty Traveler to share these opportunities.

I could really use 50,000 Marriott Rewards points right now. That is just enough points for one night at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Arts Barcelona, a hotel I would like to experience during my stay in the city next month.

The odds look great for a Loyalty Traveler reader winning one of these Marriott Rewards 50,000 points prizes from one of these nine travel blog giveaways during the next week.

Good luck.

  1. Yeah, I had like 5 windows open entering comments on them all and posted one here :). Thanks for keeping track of them.

  2. I hate, loathe and sincerly dispise Facebook. Do I have to go there or can I just comment in each of the blogs?

    Thx

  3. @Biblioman – I guess the Facebook encounter really depends on whether Marriott Rewards checks to see if you played the game before awarding the points.

    I highly doubt Marriott will cross check Facebook with entry winners from the blogs.

    And I second your comment. I do not enjoy using Facebook.

  4. @Phil – No I do not have a Marriott points giveaway.

    I was contacted in the first week of August about this promotion and offered 10,000 points for a giveaway.

    The following week Marriott boosted the giveaways to 50,000 points, but since I had already been contacted to write a sponsored post, the 50,000 points were not offered to Loyalty Traveler readers.

    I chose not to run a 10,000 points giveaway.

  5. Thank you for the overview. Let me know if you need help or tips for Barcelona. It’s a great city, you’ll love it!

  6. Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice whilst you amend your website, how could i subscribe for a blog site? The account aided me a applicable deal. I were tiny bit familiar of this your broadcast offered brilliant transparent idea
