Marriott is celebrating International Friendship Day by giving its members a chance to invite friends to join the Marriott Rewards programme. In return you and your friends will earn reward points when your friends stay at a Marriott Hotel.
Additionally, you both also get a chance to win a USD 500 Marriott gift card. This promotion is open until August 8, after which Marriott will hold a random draw from all the entries. If it’s your name in the draw then you along with your friend who accepted the invitation first will each win a USD 500 gift card from Marriott.
This offer is open until August 8,2016 and each member can invite up to 10 friends and a maximum of 100,000 Marriott Rewards points can be earned through this promotion.
Overall this is an interesting way for Marriott to increase its member footprint. While I’m sad that this promotion is restricted geographically, however for everyone eligible to participate, this a great promotion as no hotel stay or any kind of purchase is required to participate and win.
