Marriott Rewards Plus Points is 2,000 free points per month for quick social media actions

Marriott Rewards Plus Points is a social media campaign from May 8 to November 8, 2014 offering up to 2,000 bonus points per 30 days for Marriott members who register for the program and ‘Follow’ specific hotels and brands on Twitter, ‘Like’ on Facebook pages, use FourSquare for check-in points, geotag photos and use specific hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Only one qualifying activity is allowed per 24 hour period for a points earning activity. You need to be engaged at least 8 days per 30 days to maximize the offer. Registered members can earn 2,000 points per month with just a few minutes effort. Earning points is as simple as clicking ‘Like’ for the Facebook page of one of the participating hotels or ‘Follow’ one of these hotels on Twitter each day or every few days for 250 points.

There are enough hotels to ‘Like’ eight different hotels every 30 days for 2,000 points and then ‘Follow’ these same eight hotels on Twitter the next month and earn another 2,000 points for 4,000 Marriott Rewards points.

I connected my Twitter and Facebook accounts with Marriott Rewards Plus Points for 250 points earned with each connection.

Registering for Marriott Rewards Plus Points today still allows the opportunity to earn over 10,000 Marriott Rewards points by November 8, 2014.

10,000 Marriott Rewards points might not seem like much value. A free night at a Category 1 hotel is 7,500 points and category 2 hotels are 10,000 points. Last summer I stayed at Fairfield Inn Tehachapi, California which is about half-way on the 510-miles drive between my home in Monterey and Las Vegas. The Fairfield Inn Tehachapi hotel room offered more space and amenities than my room at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Fairfield Inn Tehachapi is a new-build category 1 hotel.

I gambled and won! Fairfield Inn Tehachapi, California is great Marriott Rewards Category 1 hotel award. Loyalty Traveler – July 20, 2013.

  1. Do you know if this is on a rolling 30 day basis or can I like/follow a new place after June 8th if I liked up to 2,000 points worth May 27th (for example)?

  2. @Eric – rules read to me as rolling 30 days.

    @Aaman – That is the url, links in the post work for me.

    @Leslie H – Hardest part is remembering to like and follow different properties each day to earn 2,000 points.
