Excitement! Just got my first travel itinerary of 2018 confirmed and I will be flying EVA Airways Business Class from the US to Asia, as well Singapore Airlines First Class on my return trip. Very excited that I was able to secure a First Class seat on a very busy route for Singapore Airlines. I will definitely be looking forward to this, as well as provide travel reports as it happens.
Onto more productive and profitable items: For those who has a Twitter and Instagram account, you may be able to earn free points by following Marriott. I find Marriott has a fairly competent IT and social media backbone and they've done an excellent job so far on getting things done right without being intrusive.
Follow this link to make sure you have your Twitter and Instagram accounts linked up and instantly earn free points. Remember, these points counts towards status limits too so it's nice to get a nice little boost from the start.
Not to mention, currently the NFL has a partnership with Marriott that it seems like almost every Sunday, they have been pop quizzing members on NFL facts that you can earn an additional 1,000 Marriott point each time you answer correctly. This promo has been going on for a few months now and I have been able to bank almost 10,000 free points this year already on minimal time investment.
Keep an eye out on the Marriott #Rewardspoint account on Twitter every Sunday, and I will start posting reminders when I see quizzes going on as well. For reference, ThePointsGuy values Marriott points at 0.9 cents per point, so on a weekly basis, you can earn $9 worth of hotel redemption for practically seconds of your time.
Not bad, not bad at all....
