It may have come a few days later than expected, but there is now a brand new way to win free Marriott Rewards points and four-night hotel stays at the various types of Marriott and SPG properties thanks to the company’s 29 Ways to Stay sweepstakes.

You can play the new 29 Ways to Stay game once per day until Nov. 8. Remember that this is once per day per account, so you can do this for each member of your family with a Marriott Rewards account who is 18 or older. The instant win prizes range from 50 to 20,000 Marriott Rewards points, four-night hotel stays at the various Marriott and Starwood properties and a grand prize.

Update: While you can indeed play once per day until Nov. 8, it seems you may only win one instant prize. Additional days of playing may only earn you additional grand prize entries.

The instant win prizes are worth as little as 45 cents, but the grand prize is a biggie, consisting of 29 two-night stays, one at each of the 29 Marriott Brands for the winner and one guest. To help cover tax implications, the grand prize winner also receives a $7,000 check if they reside within the United States.

While you are on Marriott’s website trying to win free points and more, you might as well register for its current bonus points promotion and make sure you don’t have any missing points while you’re at it.

For most of us, this is not going to be as rewarding as last year’s promotion where you could pick up 1,000 free Marriott Rewards points each NFL Sunday, but something is better than nothing. We’d love to hear if any TPG readers pick up some sweet Marriott Rewards prizes!
