Free miles and points are free miles and points, right?

This is just 500 Marriott points, and since Marriott does not allow points earned from social media to extend the expiration date of points, it’s not super useful but… again, free points are free points.


Through June 21, you can get 500 points for

  1. Following Marriott Rewards on Instagram
  2. Then, entering the email address of your Marriott Rewards account here.

Personally, as a computer programmer / web developer, I question whether there is any way for them to cross-reference whether you followed Marriott on Instagram with the email address that you enter in, since those may very well be different, but I went ahead and followed them anyways (as you can see above)

Takes about 20 seconds if you’re interested
