Marriott Rewards program: clever way to free hotel stays

The Marriott Rewards program has some terrific brands such as JW Marriott Marquis and Ritz Carlton. Additionally, the merger with Starwood Preferred Guest brings in even more UAE hotels and resorts.

With luxury resorts in the UAE (worth 2,500 AED per night) available for 40,000 Marriott Reward Points,  these represent great redemption value.

This travel hack can apparently obtain up to 45,000 Marriott Rewards Points per year. More so, it doesn’t cost any money, is quick and easy to do, and seemingly more Points are available at regular intervals.

Here’s a Youtube video explaining the promotion and the advantages


Is it worth doing though?

Marriott Rewards claim up to 45,000 Marriott Rewards Points are available in a year for each member using this promotion.

30,000 Rewards Points is a good redemption target and can get you into a stunning hotel such as JW Marriott Marquis Dubai. IF Marriott continues to offer easy 1,000 points each week, that’s only another 28 weeks to a free night – or less for a lower category hotel.

So just keep checking that hashtag #RewardsPoints and the Marriott Rewards accounts on all 3 social media…
