Adventures With Marriott Rewards: A Year of Surprises

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


It’s no secret that I love to travel. I love to see different places, experience new foods, explore the world around us. Because travel is life.

I am proud to announce that I have partnered with Marriott Hotels to celebrate their 30th anniversary of the Marriott Rewards® program. If you are not familiar, you can earn points on qualifying Marriott hotel stays and redeem them for a bunch of travel perks. I’ll be writing a bit about the Marriott Rewards® program over the next few months, and I am even going to stay at and review one of their properties. I can’t wait to share some amazing memories with Marriott Hotels!

Marriott Rewards® Year of Surprises


To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Marriott Rewards® program, the Marriott has launched the Year of Surprises contest. They are rewarding members by throwing a special, unforgettable surprise party for those who deserve it throughout the year! Here’s how to get in on the fun…

  • Join the Marriott Rewards® program. It’s free, and you’ll love accumulating points to redeem for awesomeness, like free night stays, car rentals, frequent flier miles with various airlines, spa services, golf packages, and other perks and merchandise. Sign up, or login to your existing account at This is suggested, but your nominee will be required to enroll.
  • You’ll need to visit the page to nominate someone who deserves this surprise celebration. It can be for anything; college graduation, a 50th birthday, landing a dream job, return from deployment, etc. Get creative, because the most original submissions that cause laughter, sympathy and warm, gushy feelings  will be chosen to win the surprise party of a lifetime!
  • There will be three submission periods throughout the year: the current one, which ends February 28th, one in May, and another in August. Check out for details.
