Mark this under Speculative, but Marriott is sending out e-mails to Marriott Rewards enticing Marriott Rewards Members to add their birthdays. This is a quick way to possible increase your points balance, or otherwise see what Marriott’s proposed birthday surprise is.
Add your Birthday to your Marriott Rewards Account
Adding your birthday to your Marriott Rewards account is actually really quick and easy. You can click on the link in the e-mail, or go here, sign in, and you’ll arrive at the below screen. Marriott only wants to know your birth month and birth day, so anyone who’s nervous about Marriott knowing your age – you needn’t worry.
There’s no telling what Marriott will be giving Marriott Rewards Members on their birthdays, but, if I had to guess, it’d probably be points. Besides, who doesn’t like points?
Marriott Likes to give Marriott Rewards Members Points
This is yet another in a long line of nice gestures for Marriott Rewards. Earlier this year, they sent me a nice tweet and gave me 500 points. Not huge, but its the thought that counts:
Overall, this isn’t going to be a game changer, but its another example of Marriott doing the right thing. Small gestures–500 points for example doesn’t really move the needle–that don’t cost the company much, helps members to feel appreciated, and to continue to patronage Marriott hotels. Its kind of like how American used to deposit some miles into members accounts after you did a redemption, as a way to keep you engaged in the program.
