Quite a few Head for Points readers will collect Marriott Rewards.
Very few Head for Points readers will know much about baseball!
I was therefore in two minds about posting this, but I am sure that the keen Marriott Rewards collector will be able to get over obvious problem of not knowing anything about baseball!
What am I talking about?
Well, over at the Marriott Rewards official forum, Marriott is offering 1,000 Marriott points if you share 2 stories about baseball!
Heaven knows what you will write about! However, they can be pretty short, so perhaps just pop in something about how you met your wife in a bar in the US whilst watching a specific game.
In theory, you must be a US resident to get the points. This clause is always in these promotions, though, and it is 90% likely that you will get them.
(If you won the big prize you would be in trouble, but I doubt any HfP reader will have a baseball story that good!)
