Earn 1,500 Marriott Rewards Points (or 500 SPG Points) for Connecting Social Media

Marriott today announced the start of their new holiday promo – for the next 30 days, Marriott Rewards members will have the opportunity to win bonus points and access to deals. Or as their marketing materials say:

30 Days of Members Get It: Members get exciting stuff every day for the next month! Get Holidazzled

Well, that tagline is… festive.

The promotion starts today with Marriott kicking it off by encouraging members to connect their social media accounts to their Rewards account – all for 500 points per account linked. Members can connect their account to their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram account.

Holiday Social Media

If you’d like to sign up, you’ll have to do so on the link provided through their promotional landing page – which then shoots you to the sign up page here. You’ll have the option to link each social media platform separately – so you can choose which to opt into. Bonus! On Instagram and Twitter, I was given the option to follow their accounts for an extra 50 points each.

For those who’ve linked their SPG accounts to Marriott, don’t forget you’ll be able to transfer the 1,500 points (or more!) you’ll earn from this promotion into 500 Starpoints by transferring your points between the two programs. If you haven’t linked your Marriott and Starwood accounts just yet, you can do so on Marriott’s page.

On a side note, you can only transfer Marriott points to SPG in 1,000 points increments so if you don’t currently have any Marriott points in your Rewards account, you’ll only be able to transfer and receive. 333 SPG points.
