  1. just spoke to Ryan at Marriott Rewards (1-800-321-7396) and he informed me that the survey your linked to about getting 100 points is not authorized by Marriott and he told me that they could not be giving 100 Marriott points for the people completing the survey. Actually the survey does not state explicitly that they are giving 100 Marriott Rewards points. They may only be giving 100 of the survey company’s points. In fact, it may simply be a scam page that is trying to get your Marriott reward account number to book a room stay.

    Thank you anyway, for your daily emails. I do appreciate a lot of your recommendations.

  2. Thanks Harvey Mechanic! Without your post, I would have jumped on this 100 pt survey.

    Gary, I enjoy your posts, keep up the good work.


  3. Marriott Survey UNRELIABLE
    Applied for the 100 Marriott Survey link above which promised to award 100 points and reactive account expiration date in 4-6 weeks. Another person also emailed me stating they had applied but neither of us got points.

    Gary Leff was contacted as there is NO confirmation email just a web page saying confirmed. marriott Rewards is unaware of this survey and won’t honor.

    Gary Leff says he feels it’s a valid offer but offers no way to contact the 3rd party link on his web site.


  4. Why is the Marriott Survey link still on View From The Wing web site if it’s now closed?

    Survey doesn’t seem to be reliable and nobody will check this out making links unreliable on this web page.
