Fancy some free Marriott Rewards Points?

To get 150 free Points, all you have to do is connect your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles to your Marriott Rewards account. You get 50 Points for each form of social media, so a total of 150 Points.

If you do not have a Marriott Rewards account yet, sign up through a special link to get 1,000 free Avios too!

If you have previously linked your social media accounts to Marriott Rewards it seems that you will not be able to get the bonus Points.

Remember that you can transfer Marriott Rewards Points freely now into Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints instantly at a 3:1 rate (so 150 Marriott Points will get you 50 Starpoints).

Marriott Category 1 hotels require just 7,500 Marriott Reward Points (SPG Category 1 hotels 2,000-3,000 Starpoints) and it’s easy to share Points with someone who lives at the same address, so although 150 isn’t very many, it’s not too bad.

Note that Marriott Rewards Points earned from social media interactions do not reset the expiry date of your existing Points – don’t end up in a situation like I did!

Bottom line

Free Marriott Rewards Points are always nice!

Ok, so 150 isn’t world-changing, but it only takes a few seconds to link your social media accounts, and following on social media is a good way of keeping up to date with what Marriott is up to regardless.

    I’m happy to contribute more in the forum, I think many of us just forget this site has a forum connected.

      Much appreciated! – Yes, it’s definitely easy to forget about at the moment, but we’ve got some good plans…
