Marriott Rewards Refer-a-Friend for up to 50,000 points

Marriott Rewards has a Refer a Friend offer that benefits member sponsors and their new member referrals with 2,000 bonus points per stay, up to five stays within one year.

How Marriott Rewards Referral Bonus Works
  • Refer up to 5 new members each calendar year.
  • Earn 2,000 Marriott Rewards bonus points for each stay your referrals make beginning with their first paid stay, up to 5 stays per referral. That’s 50,000 bonus points for you.
  • Your friends will also earn 2,000 Marriott Rewards bonus points beginning with their first paid stay, up to 5 stays. That’s 10,000 bonus points for them, in addition to the base points they’ll earn.
  • Stays at any participating hotels qualify, and must be made within 365 days of enrollment.

The basic idea is you and your friend both earn 2,000 bonus points per stay, up to 5 stays completed within one year of new member enrollment. The sponsor can earn 10,000 points from each friend after five stays within one year of enrollment in Marriott Rewards. This offer can be repeated with five friends for 50,000 bonus points in referral points.

Marriott Refer a Friend

If you would like me to refer you as a new member to Marriott Rewards, then leave a comment stating you want me to sponsor you and I will use the email address from your comment to create a referral. Since there is a limit of five referrals I can sponsor, please have an interest in staying at Marriott brand hotels over the next year so we can both benefit.
