The chances that you don’t have a friend who posts vacation pictures on social media, are somewhere between zero- and zero point five. Basically, we can’t escape seeing pictures of people enjoying their hotel pool, meal, sunset- whatever. It’s life in the 21st century, and honestly, it’s inspiring. That’s exactly how Marriott would like things to stay. All those pictures make us want to get out and travel, so if you own a hotel brand, that’s a sentiment worth capitalizing on. In exchange for the free marketing, Marriott just significantly upped the ante for social media snapping. We’re talking free hotel nights here.

That’s right- just for being the annoying, social media savvy person you already are-you’ll earn enough points for either multiple nights at many excellent Marriott or SPG hotels, or a single free night at a world renowned five star stunner, like a Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott or Renaissance. Yeah, worldwide, for real. This will happen from following along with contests and promotions, tweeting specific hash tags, Instagramming photos and so forth. Free nights for stuff you already do = good.

Getting points for things you already do is magic. It’s the future. It’s exciting to share an opportunity like this, where anyone with an internet connection really can earn unforgettable travel experiences- just for engaging with a brand. As you may already know, you can move Marriott points and SPG points back and forth instantly, so this promotion is also a great way to stack up Starwood (SPG) points as well. Enjoy, and of course, be sure not to miss a contest.
