Sorry, this #rewardspoints promotion has come to an end. Stay tuned for new ways to earn:
Gone for now?

I'm trying to see a pattern as to why some got them and some didn't. Marriott retroactively gave another 1000 points to some people - for which they would have had to run some kind of sweep on Twitter - but if you deleted your tweet it wouldn't have been picked up. Not sure why YoungBubbie wouldn't, though.

I got mine immediately on Sunday after I retweeted someone as opposed to others haviing a delay in points posting.
Any correlation?

Today got an email from mr-points.com saying no points was awarded, when I check Twitter, there was a reply from Marriott:

Am I the only one?

My wife and I both got 1,000 points on Sunday. Neither of us deleted our tweets. Neither of us got the extra 1,000 yesterday. We were early and there was a delay so we tried both retweeting and creating our own new tweets.

It depends how Marriott worked out who would get the 1000 and who wouldn't.
Is the original tweet you tweeted still there? What time was it tweeted (and retweeted?)

I suppose it doesn't matter really as you've got the points now.

I think there was a glitch where if you tweeted during a certain time frame on Sunday you did not get credit the first time. I believe this is what happened to me. Marriott figured it out and retroactively credited people whose tweets had a time stamp in that range. Again, this fits with my experience: nothing on Sunday, 1,000 on Wednesday. My theory is that the people who got the extra 1,000 were people who figured out on Sunday that they hadn't been credited and tweeted multiple times, eventually triggering the auto credit. They then had their (uncredited) tweet caught in the retroactive sweep and got another 1,000. Marriott may have tried to filter out those who had already received credit but did this manually (haphazardly and imperfectly), so some lucked out.

So for the people who did get the extra 1k pts, be mindful that they may deduct those points!

I was just about to post the same email.
max 2,000 points/ year is not what their promotion promised.

Or is #rewardspoints different than #mrpoints ?

Sounds like an outdated automated email.

The max cannot be 2000 points per year, as I have earned over 2000 just recently because of the NFL sunday promotions.
