A couple of weeks ago, I let you know that you can earn lots of Marriott points by participating in upcoming social media promotions. And via Live From a Lounge, Marriott is celebrating the eclipse with one of these social media deals!
You can earn 50 Marriott points for sharing on Twitter where you’re viewing today’s solar eclipse!
That’s not a lot of points, but I’ll tell you why earning even 50 Marriott points can be useful!
Free Points for Sharing Marriott Tweet
The Great American Eclipse is finally here! And Marriott is celebrating by giving folks 50 Marriott points for either:
- Tweeting where you’re viewing the solar eclipse along with hashtags #SolarEclipse2017 and #RewardsPoints
- Sharing this tweet with your followers
Sharing a tweet takes literally just ONE second. So these could be the easiest points you’ve ever made! But the deal is only good for today.
You can’t do much with 50 Marriott points. But something is better than nothing. And small promotions like this can add up!
