Marriott recently announced all customers will have a chance to win one of 1,000 free nights valid at over 4,000 Marriott properties around the world. Marriott doesn’t restrict which hotel categories the e-certificate will be valid at; you can use it at a Category 1-9 property.
No purchase is required to enter, but you can earn even more entries if you are a user of the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card. Every transaction posted to your account by June 30, 2017, will earn you an additional entry into the sweepstakes. More information is available at 1000nightsofsummer.com.
Is 1,000 Nights of Summer a Good Deal?
The chances of winning this promotion depends entirely on the number of people who enter – and I expect that it will be a large number, meaning that your chances of winning will be pretty small. Nevertheless, it’s not much work to enter to win online and you have no chance of winning if you don’t enter! If you have the time to spare a minute or so each day, you might as well give yourself a chance!
If you want to better your chances of winning, you should put your Marriott credit card in a prime slot in your wallet until the end of June. Even if you switch all of your spending to that card, your chance of winning a free night with Marriott will likely be small. Instead of putting all of your purchases on your Marriott credit card, it might be a better idea to only put small purchases on the card that otherwise will only earn one point per dollar spent.
If you are one of the lucky winners, you should expect your e-certificate to be delivered approximated eight weeks after the sweepstakes ends.
