Free & Instant: 1500 Marriott Points or 500 Starwood Points

If you link your social media accounts to Marriott Rewards by December 7 you’ll get 500 points each for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

This takes just a few moments and the points post right away. And of course you can instantly transfer Marriott points to Starwood at a 3:1 ratio if you wish, so you have a choice of 1500 Marriott Rewards points or 500 Starwood Starpoints from this promotion.

It’s all part of a Marriott holiday promotion. They want you to get holidazzled, which is something my dad caught me doing once and I was grounded for weeks.

You won’t get more points if your accounts are already linked, such as from a previous (smaller) promotion.
