Via Points, Miles & Martinis, this Sunday, September 24, 2017, Marriott will give you 1,000 bonus Marriott points for answering an NFL trivia question on Twitter!

They ran the same promotion last Sunday, so hopefully it will continue through football season.  Even folks who aren’t into football (like me!) can get excited about an easy promotion like this. 😉

Cheers to Sunday Night Football and FREE Marriott Points!

I’ll show you how to take advantage of this offer.  And remind you of other ways to earn more Marriott points!

Earn 1,000 Bonus Marriott Points Through Twitter

As part of their social media campaign, this coming Sunday, September 24, 2017, Marriott will post an NFL trivia question to its Twitter page.  And all you have to do to earn 1,000 free Marriott points is answer it!

Just be sure your Twitter account is connected to your Marriott rewards account.  And use the hashtag #RewardsPoints.

1,000 Marriott points isn’t enough for a free night.  But something is better than nothing!  And free points can really add up.

That said, promotions like this via social media do NOT keep your points from expiring.

And don’t forget, because Marriott points transfer to Starwood at a 3:1 ratio, 1,000 Marriott points = ~333 Starwood points.  So this could be an easy way to top off your Starwood account, too.

If you’re short on Marriott points, you could consider:

Plus, you can open AMEX Starwood credit cards and transfer the points to Marriott:

Keep in mind that if you’ve opened 5+ cards from any bank (NOT counting Chase business cards and these other business cards) in the past 24 months, it’s unlikely you’ll be approved for most Chase cards.

That said, the Chase Marriott Premier Business card is NOT affected by this rule!  So it’s possible to get it even if you’re over 5/24.   

And don’t forget, a friend or family member can send you Marriott points for free!

Bottom Line

You can earn 1,000 bonus Marriott points by answering Marriott’s NFL trivia question on Twitter.  But the offer is only valid this Sunday, September 24, 2017.  And you must respond using the hashtag #RewardsPoints.

This is an incredibly easy way to earn bonus Marriott (or Starwood!) points.  And it should only take a few seconds of your time!

The problem is, how the F does twitter work? Can you tell exactly which page to go to and exactly what to type in? There’s #RewardsPoints and there’s @marriottrewards Where do you go and what do you do? Vey confusing for a non-twitterer

twitter is Marriott!

I only joined Twitter because of the promo. I’ve never used Twitter and don’t see how to connect my Marriott Rewards number to my Twitter account. I find the whole site to be very confusing and wonder if it’s worth the points for all the hassle.

This is where we are supposed to be able to connect our social media accounts: https://mrpoints.chirpify.com/rewardspoints/register#!#top
I connected my Facebook account, got the confirmation email, and proceeded to connect my Twitter account, but now Marriott won’t let me sign in. Changed password & got confirmation, still can’t sign in, with Firefox or Chrome. Perhaps the site is overloaded with entrants?
I went to Marriott’s Twitter site: https://twitter.com/hashtag/RewardsPoints?src=hash
and the offer on that page does NOT say you must link the two accounts – it could be that they recognized the site overload and opened the promotion up for the general public? I entered just in case, we’ll see what happens. I’m saving a screenshot of my entry and of my inability to log in, and will take it up with Marriott if I don’t get my points.

They offered this last week. I got the 1k points. Are you saying they are doing it again?

A heads up, apparently they cut this off at 8pm sharp. (eastern time). I had tweeted out at about 8:05pm and got a response the promo was over. Even though there’s still footbal being played and games starting after 8pm, they stopped accepting new tweets.

I don’t think the promo is running yet. It’s 9/21 today, he mentions the promo is 9/24 (Sunday).
