Marriott Rewards Rebooted Reward A Friend Referral Program

Marriott Rewards has had an ongoing Refer-a-Friend program for as long as I can recall. They have now rebooted it, at least temporarily, under Reward-a-Friend.

Marriott Rewards Reward A Friend

Referred member can earn 2,000 bonus points for each of the first five stays done within 365 days after signing up through this program. Also, the referrer will get same bonus points for stays that referrer member consumes.

You can access Marriott Rewards Rewards-a-Friend program here.

Marriott Rewards member can refer for up to 10 new members every calendar year and earn maximum of 10,000 bonus points for each new member (2,000 bonus points per stay).

Marriott Rewards is also running a sweepstakes for $500 gift card for new sign up made until August 8, 2016.


Those that are starting with the Marriott Rewards should either take advantage of the free night voucher promo or the refer-a-friend one.

It takes roughly a day once someone sends the invite before Marriott Rewards actually sends it out. There must be some manual process behind.

If you have not signed up for Marriott Rewards and would like to join, we can send invites. Just drop me an email.
