As the official sponsor of HKSEVENS Rugby Week, Marriott Rewards is running a contest especially for people who are not yet members of their loyalty program, and those with the 3 most creative and original entries will win some pretty cool prizes.
Called “Capture Your HKSEVENS Moments”, the contest begins on March 15, 2017 and ends at 11:59pm (HKT) on 12 Apr 12, 2017.
The Grand Prize sounds dreamy. It is a four-day, three-night stay for two at the W Hotel Maldives in a Wonderful Beach Oasis room, including breakfast.
The 2nd Prize is a three-day, two-night stay for two at the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa in a Deluxe Room, including breakfast.
The 3rd Prize is a $200 Marriott certificate, which can be used at any Marriott International hotel worldwide.
Although the contest is being marketed in Hong Kong, according to the contest T&C it looks like it is open to everyone that is at least 18 years old and becomes a brand-new Marriott Rewards member by signing up via the contest page. There is no mention about country of residence, or exclusions.
Indeed, when testing out the sign-up there is a place to select country, and the US along with a ton more are listed.
You can sign up and enter between now and April 12, 2017. If you are already a member of Marriott Rewards or Ritz-Carlton Rewards, you are excluded from the contest (which means a large number of readers, including myself).
Here’s how to enter:
1. Go to www.MRxHKSevens.com and scroll to the bottom of the page to click the box to accept the terms & conditions of the contest, and follow along with the prompts to enroll in Marriott Rewards.
3. Post it on Instagram or Facebook and include the hashtag #membersgetmore
Note that there is a limit of one entry per person.
Here’s an example of one of the entries via Instagram –
The winners will be announced on Marriott’s Instagram page on April 15, 2017, and the prizes will be awarded within six weeks.
The prizes sound great. This sounds like a good way for Marriott Rewards to get new members and for new members to potentially get a really neat prize.
