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

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. Citibank is an advertising partner of this site, as is American Express, Chase, Barclays and Capital One. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. 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). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.

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.

  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.

  3. Do you know if Marriott is bringing back this football season 2018-19 bonus points for answering a NFL trivia question on Twitter?
