You stand a good chance of winning 50 points, and if you are lucky, you could strike big.

## Our Take

Will I be spending a couple of minutes a day between tasks playing the Marriott game? For sure, it takes minimum time, is fun, and the excitement of potentially winning something will give you a boost for the rest of the day! There is nothing not to like about Marriott’s 29 ways to stay promotion.

3 days in and I have 50 points so far

Same same… 50 points so far for each for the wife and I so far. Only been playing for 2 days though… guess I missed one?

BTW: there is a typo in the first paragraph, second sentence in the post: it should read “through November 8”, not “November 1″… the date is correct in the “Key Terms” section, however.

got it; thanks!

a nice and easy promo

good luck guys and gals!

This could be fun – and profitable.

3 days in and I got 3050 pts. Thanks!!

Oh nice free points! I saw an email about this but haven’t checked it out yet… will do, thanks for the tip.

i think its only one instant win per person for the whole 29 days. which is a HUGE bummer. i wont be continuing to play.

Yes it is just one prize! 🙁

So ridiculous!! I suppose it could be like playing the lotto and you could win big. Fifty points isn’t going to break the bank; its not even worth following up if they don’t post

I love these games! I got points the first day, but not the second sadly =(

Nobody is winning more than once 🙁

Today was my first day. Logging into three different accounts with our family …winning 50 points each!!! Now the question is… if I use the same email for all three will all three get the points???

Cool. Thanks. And, even though it won’e be me, it’s really cool that they give the grand prize winner $7000 to pay for taxes on their prize.

I won 50 pts on my first try. Big money here I come! 🙂

I won 50 points but they still didn’t appear in my account.

Now to remember to play daily

Heck yes!

Odd residency limitations:o.

Thank you so much!

Me & my partner won 50 pts the first day but nothing since.

I’ve won 50 points so far on day one, did read that others have won 4000 points and one person a four night stay.

Early reports suggest that you can only win once over the entire period of the promo, so if you get 50 points on day 1 that’s it! 🙁

Played 4 days, only won once – 50 miles…

Here comes the annual goodies again.

I got 1000 points and now I’m wondering whether to continue to play – what are the chances for 2nd prize…

Hoping I win big!

I’m going to play for the third time today. I won 50 points on the first day and nothing on the second day. I have a suspicion that you only get to win something one time…so that once you get the 50 points (the default prize) you don’t get to win again though your future game plays do enter you in to the Grand Prize draw. I hope i am wrong. I would love to earn more points.

5 of us are playing and we won 50 points the first day and nothing since

Did anyone find out yet if you need to get all the answers correct for a chance at the daily points. or if it doesn’t matter?

That possible 50 point limit is quite worrisome. I wonder if Marriott understands how unhappy that would make most players.

Anyone else unable to click through once logged into the game?

I got 1k points – hope for more!!

Why isn’t the entry allowed to have members from most / all other countries where members & hotels are located?

Ie: Australia, New Zealand.

Easy points. My favorite!

Only 50 points so far. Hoping to win more another day. It’s a cute way to get people to the site.

This is fun and easy way to get points.

Disappointed in this game. Looking like it is a one-time prize no matter how small. 2 household members got 50 points each the first day and nothing on each of the next 4 days.

Looks like you can only win once or else I have really bad luck!

50 points; not sure if I’ll keep trying….

I’ve never heard of anyone winning more one prize which is depressing.

Yes. Only one win here on the first day.

Is anyone getting 50 points more than once? I won the first time, and nothing since…I know, small trial window, but wondering if there is a pattern in winning your first time to get you to keep coming back.

Same thing here! Got 50 points first time only and ever since I’ve been getting free entries. A bit annoying really.

That’s how it will be for all plays. One win and the rest are entries.

bummer on win only once, but a win is a win is a win

1000 points on my first game, nice bonus.

I got 50 pts. Like others, I think this is a one time thing. I’ll try again, but not holding my breath.

You can only get 1 instant win prize. All other attempts are simply entries in the grand prize. You will not win a prize for every play.

I think the one in two odds is nonsense. Maybe one in two people wins 50 points and then nothing more.

Got 1000 points playing on the 2nd day for the first time.. nothing since..

I matched and answered a trivia question on my first try, but does that earn me points, or is it just the thrill of victory?

50 points is 50 points.!!!

Easy promotion!

This is so great! Thank you.

50 points on my first day. We’ll see what happens on my subsequent days of playing…? Sure hope that the 50 points I’ve already won is not the final ceiling (fingers crossed).

that is it. you’ve hit the max — the only thing you can win now is the grand prize.

Silly you can only “win” on one day. 50 points on day 1 and nothing since…

Totally agree! At least give us more than 50 points for that one day..!

Perfect timing to extend my points expiration.

The points earned from this Marriott promo aren’t likely to extend your expiration.

Some of the other blogs allude to the fact that it will extend the expiry date of your points .

I wouldn’t bank on it.

Have not received points other than the first time playing the game. Seems to be the trend. Wonder why the roll out of the game was delayed.

Thanks. I got 50 points each for me, my wife, daughter and son. Also good to do for expiration extension. I look forward to tomorrow!

The way they advertise this is rather deceptive

Totally agree!

50 points the first day. Nothing since.

Does anyone know if getting the trivia question wrong affects your ability to collect? I’ve played twice and won only an entrance into a sweep stakes. Maybe I should have done some research before just randomly clicking …

Anecdotally the points come (or don’t come) regardless of whether you answer right or wrong.

wow! great to know!

Do you always get confirmation emails for the bonus points earned?

won points for the second time today

Second set of points awarded – two lots of 50pts now.

Saw that you can win instant points more than once now, and I’m another 50 points richer!

Seems like Marriott had a change of heart after so many complaints

I won 50 points. Better than 0 I guess.

Interesting! What the heck! Today’s match and question,”Where can you find Westin?” Choices are “1 p.m. 2 p.m. or 3 p.m.”( Correct answer is 3 p.m.)

Go figure – my husband gets the wrong answer and wins 1000 points today.

I got the correct answer and only got 50 points.

Nothing made sense on that….at least we each got points….today.

Thank, Marriott 🙂

Working again, 500 points for me today!

Getting 50 points every day now.

Have yet to see points hit account.

It looks like now you can win on multiple days now. Marriott must have realized members were unhappy.

How they couldn’t foresee that people would be unhappy, I don’t understand..!

Hadn’t checked this thread in a little while, and saw that now, users can get rewarded after the first instant win. I’m 50 pts richer.

600 points so far…

Wow that’s great!

Very much hoping that these points extend my points expiration date!!! Have won 50 points 3-4 times now. Nothing bigger yet. While the points are nominal the expiration date push back would be huge as I don’t travel much for business anymore. Looks like Howie is saying they won’t :/.

I’ve won 4 x 50points so far. Btw, does anybody know if you could play under your SPG account and Marriott account separately if you have not merged them?

Read the response about this game being unlikely to extend point expiration, but I did win 50 points each day so far, except one time 500 and one time 1,000, so I’m just as happy even if they don’t extend expiration. Fast and easy.

I have not won any prizes worth more than 50 points… yet.

Played again today for myself, wife and son and daughter. In 2 cases I got nothing and in 2 I got 50 points. Maybe the 1:2 odds are per day, or are they over the whole time period?

1000 points for me finally, yay 🙂

Just played again for myself, wife , son and daughter and got 50 points each. Easy. Thanks

Any updates on these points not counting towards expiration extension? Is there a technicality about them that would lead us to believe they won’t? I would think a point is a point when it’s hitting your account but I’m not the expert here. Just wondering!? Thanks!

A point is not a point when it comes to expiration. I wouldn’t count on them extending your expiration.

I couldn’t get in yesterday. Their system seemed to be down.

I have a total of 2800 points as of today.

This looks like a great way to extend your Marriott points! Am I correct?

Wooooo! I finally got a win over 50 points! Had 1,000 on one of my account yesterday and now 500 on my other account today!!!! Those plus 50 points most days actually add up to a pretty nice prize!

I definitely won’t count on the points extending that date based on your educated option Howie. As someone who knows nothing about how hotel points work is there a special way they code the points or something that tells their system which points count towards expiration extension and which don’t? Are there other examples of points earned that don’t count towards that expiration. Just curious l, I would love to know for future reference. Thanks!!!!

Still winning on average 50 points a day which is great! I am enjoying this 🙂

After having login problems & missing first 7 days, I have received pts every day totaling 5750 with 2 days to go. Enjoying the winning.

Only one of my 50 points wins has posted. I know the website says 8-10 weeks, but I was expecting that to be for the big wins. Also, can confirm what was suspected—those 50 points didn’t extend my expiration.

They will not extend your expiration.

When do we get the points we won?
