Spam your friends for 2,000 Marriott or 500 United points each month. Sign up for Marriott's new Plus Points program and earn points for posting about Marriott. Participants can earn up to 2,000 Marriott points per month. Marriott points can be transferred 4:1 to United miles with the Rewards Plus program discount, the ratio improves the more points are transferred. Marriott rewards points have a poor value, so I will be transferring my points to United, but waiting for the price breaks.
