Earlier this year, Marriott announced that its Rewards members would get special discounts on stays when they book directly through the chain. Now, the hotel brand is running a promotion where members can receive 500 bonus points simply by following the Marriott Rewards page on Instagram before June 21.


If you’re not already a member, you can still sign up for a free account and get in on the action by following these three steps:

Step 1: Follow Marriott Rewards on Instagram.

Step 2: Click on the link in the bio.

Step 3: Enter the email address associated with your Marriott Rewards membership account.


You’ll receive your bonus Marriott Rewards points within four weeks, at which point they can be used toward future stays. Note that you’re only able to earn the 500 bonus points once per email address entered and that as part of the promo, miles can’t be earned instead of points.

Looking to earn more points in a hurry? Sign up for the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card, which gives you 80,000 Marriott Rewards points after you spend $3,000 within the first three months of opening your account. You’ll also score a free night stay at any Marriott category 1-5 property after your account anniversary.

What’s your favorite Marriott property? Is there a certain one you’re saving up Rewards points to stay in?
