I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Rewards Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As you guys know, I’m blogging as part of the Marriott Rewards® Ambassador program, and this is the second of a serious of three posts. You might remember my trip to the JW Marriott Hill Country back in April. The property was great, and I definitely gave it a positive review, but the purpose of this post is to review the actual Marriott Rewards program and my experience redeeming points for a free night’s stay!
As a refresher, the Marriott Rewards program is free to join, and every time you stay in a Marriott property, you earn points that can be redeemed for free nights (you can enroll here: Marriott.com/rewards). Based on your stays and points, you also gain status and each tier comes with even greater benefits. Though I’ve redeemed points for free nights in the past (our New Orleans trip was free!), I’ve never had status before. As a Platinum Elite member, you gain privileges such as 48-hour guaranteed availability, exclusive offers, dedicated Platinum reservation line, 50% bonus on points for stays, free wifi, and and late checkout. Pretty cool!
I put together a video to share my experience with you guys. I apologize for the umms and awkward transitions – def. not used to being on camera!
Now you can see why Marriott Rewards has been voted “Program of the Year” 6 years in a row!
Also, don’t forget that Marriott Rewards is celebrating it’s 30th birthday with a Year of Surprises. You can nominate friends or family for a surprise party at yearofsurprises.com by sharing your ideas for a celebration.
