Today Only – Free Marriott Rewards Points

There’s finally something good about the eclipsefree points.

Your Marriott Rewards and Twitter accounts need to be connected of course, but they give you points for that too.

Bear in mind that points earned via social don’t extend the expiration date of your account. And also that Marriott points transfer 3:1 into Starwood Preferred Guest. Points post quickly.

  1. 17 Starwood points for a tweet to augment my Amex Starwood beer run from 30 minutes ago. At this impressive rate of accumulation I’ll have enough points for a room in Des Moines in 2019….

  2. Sorry forgot to add my cynical wonderment as to whether Marriott corporate woke up today to see JetBlue’s 100,000-point eclipse contest and decided to throw the Tweeters a bone.

  3. Gary, this is worth about thirty cents (less to me , I have a lower valuation for Marriott).

    Why would you waste your time, and more importantly our time, on this?

  4. @Steven M, the Marriott’s is a give-away for all member that will tweet while the JetBlue is a contest whereby one person will win. BTW, thanks for the heads up on the 100K JB contest on FB 🙂

    Thanks Gary, I’m 50 points closer to that Air+Hotel package 🙂

  5. Tried to reap the 250 Marriott points by attempting to connect with Twitter.
    This is what I saw:

    This application will be able to:
    Read Tweets from your timeline.
    See who you follow, and follow new people.
    Update your profile.
    Post Tweets for you.
    See your email address.

    Excuse me …??? … update my profile …? Are you sane in the head …? How about my bank balance, credit cards, brand of underwear …
    These guys have more than a couple screws loose !

  6. Jeez what a bunch of whiners! So its not gonna get you 100,000 points. Who cares. Get in the spirit and tweet party poopers!

  7. Just got my confirmation that at any given time, about 40% of people on the internet are angry about something.

  8. So do the 250 points to connect with Marriott via FB, Twitter and Instagram not count for extending expiring, either? Shoot – still looking for a way to extend without a stay!
