Back in May I wrote about ‘Plus Points’. This was an easy way to earn 2,000 Marriott Rewards points per month by simply following eight Marriott hotels on Twitter or Facebook.
It seems that, for Marriott, it was far too easy – and too expensive.
They have effectively gutted the promotion, with immediate effect. You will now only receive 25 Marriott Rewards points for following a hotel on Twitter. The Facebook option has been removed entirely.
Given that Marriott Rewards points are worth 0.5p at best, this is absolutely not worth your time and effort any more. It is a shame, although I can imagine that Marriott baulked when they saw that they were handing out well over a million points per month – which they undoubtedly were.
Details of the new earning structure can be found at the Plus Points website.
