Social media is a powerful tool for connecting with an audience and creating vocal brand advocates, especially when you’re offering them a reward or prize. I saw two examples of this recently with the American Airlines / US Airways / Hilton contest last week, and the Club Carlson promo the week before. It appears that Marriott is getting into the game with Marriott Rewards and a new program called “Plus Points“, which runs from today through November 8, 2014.

Marriott Rewards Plus Points.

Marriott Rewards members can earn up to 2,000 Rewards Points per 30 days for participating in specific social media tasks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Foursquare. This includes “liking” pages which is the most lucrative at 250 points per property and also sharing social media content, checking in at specific properties and using unique hashtags (e.g., #LoveMarriottRewards) for 25 points each. My goal would be to like 8 different hotels per month to hit 2,000- there are about 50 participating properties and hopefully more join as time goes on. 2,000 points at about 1 cent per point = $20 per month for liking 8 hotels, which should take about 2 minutes. Not the worst point payday!

After discussing travel with Marriott points only yesterday, these points seem like a great way to boost your account. Not all properties are eligible for this promotion, so take note of the program rules to make sure this promotion works for you. Rewards members electing to earn miles are ineligible for this promotion, so it’s points only. Ritz-Carlton Rewards members are also ineligible.

Its simple to sign-up; all Marriott Rewards members can follow these instructions:

Navigate to www.marriottrewardspluspoints.com

  1. Enter your Marriott Rewards number
  2. Press the Facebook button to link your Facebook account
  3. You will receive a confirmation page and will be prompted to link your other social profile accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare). You can link all 4 of your social profiles to Plus Points by linking one at a time on this confirmation page.

If you are not a member of Marriott Rewards, you can sign up here. If you want to add even more to your Marriott point balance, consider signing up for a Marriott credit card. The Marriott Rewards Premier card will get you 70,000 points after you spend $1,000 within the first 3 months (the business version comes with 50,000 points after $1,000 spent within 3 months), and the basic Marriott Rewards card will get you 30,000 points after $1,000 spent in the first 3 months. Add in the 2,000 that you can earn through Marriott Rewards Plus Points and you’re getting some serious points!

    Can you please fix the issue with the pictures? When you click on them they don’t enlarge…

    So my husband and I just linked our facebook accounts with Marriott. We each in turn “liked” 8 different properties from their list. According to what I read, we should then receive 2000 pts each (250 per property). Then in 30 days we can do this again for another 2000?

    Hopefully it all works!

  • Glaire

    Tried to link my account with facebook but got “We’re sorry but this account is not eligible for this program.”

  • Happy Mommy

    Very cool. Your link to premier marriott credit card shows a higher sign up bonus than the application i found on Chase website. :-)

  • Joe

    Thanks for all the Marriott love and posts of late.

  • Jim Strong

    I got the “not eligible” message too. Are Canadians not allowed? Hope that isn’t the case or select members are exempt.

  • Gus3864

    I got the “not eligible” as well. Do you need to have a certain amount of points or stays on your Marriott account? Mine is new, so it reads 0. Perhaps you have to have a minimum number of friends on FB or newness of FB account is taken into consideration

    Thanks for posting. It’s an interesting idea but I just read the warning on Facebook- “Marriott Rewards Plus Points will receive the following info: your public profile, friend list, email address, News Feed, relationships, relationship interests, birthday, notes, status updates, checkins, education history, events, groups, hometown, interests, current city, photos, questions, religious and political views, personal description and likes.” Yikes. No thanks!

  • Frank

    Not eligible…what gives?

  • Rod L

    I’m a bit confused as the links on Marriott’s FAQs don’t seem to be working. Is this list of hotels the list of PARTICIPATING hotels or ones that ARE NOT participating? https://www.marriottrewardspluspoints.com/faq#q5

  • Glaire

    That’s why I have an anonymous facebook account for these type of things.

  • Tgb

    You might as well get off the grid.

  • ncsurob

    So I accidentally like 11 properties and it gave me all the points.

    I was able to join no problem as a Canadian. Did a “test like” and earned 250 points from liking the main Marriott FB page. I now plan to go hog-wild with the likes (up to 8 per 30 days of course).

  • Brian Cogswell

    This program has stopped working, at least for me. First month got 1800 points, missed one I guess… This month, I like and follow new stuff, all per the FAQ and nothing, no email, nothing. Its been more than 30 days since I earned the prior points…anyone else?

  • qstpss

    Same. But Marriott support assured me that everything is ok…

  • beth_odonnell

    Same thing. I contacted Marriott twice. First they wanted all the properties I “stayed at.” So I corrected them and sent a list of the properties I liked on FB. Now they want the dates for them. They keep saying make sure you selected points– of course I did– and like participating hotels. I used their list.

  • stevejnr

    they seemed to have changed the offer!

  • stevejnr

    I tried adding the new chart but it didn’t show up so check this link:

  • Greg Amy

    Below chart still current…looks like the 2,000 points for “liking” hotels is no longer valid. Nice while it lasted…

  • Abib

    How long does it take for points to show up? I signed up a week ago with my FB and Twitter account.
