Marriott Brings Back Free Points Today (50% More This Time)

I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do.

I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).


Each Sunday in the back part of 2017 Marriott would offer a trivia question to answer on Twitter each Sunday, and a correct answer would be good for 1000 points.

These were NFL football-related so it’s not surprising to see free Twitter points back today because Superbowl.

Instead of one question with many hours to answer though, fifteen hundred points are on the table with more than one question and we’ll have track this during the game this evening.

Your Marriott Rewards and Twitter accounts need to be connected. Points earned via social don’t extend the expiration date of your account. Marriott points transfer 3:1 into Starwood Preferred Guest, so this is also 500 Starwood points if you prefer.

Of course if you don’t want to just earn drips and drops of points the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card is offering 75,000 points after spending $3,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening — and a $0 annual fee the first year ($85 thereafter).

  1. Thanks Gary!

    Will you be posting answers throughout the game or are we on are own? (I wouldn’t blame you, just curious).

  2. @Beachfan I’m not sure I’ll be online, probably just my phone, so I can grab the 1500 points but not sure I’ll be able to post tonight — sorry! Wanted everyone to know this was out there precisely because I may not be able to flag the questions later.
