I seem to get credit for very few of my eligible posts. My "friends" on FB and "followers" on twitter are sick of seeing me post Marriott rewards links, pictures and hashtags. My thanks from Points Plus is I get credit for about 1 in 5 actions. Additionally i am still waiting for my 250 for each like/follow, well after a week. What is up with that? Beta or not, that is not right.
Anyone else having the same issue(s)?
Yes the issue of points not posting for this promotion apparently is still a problem. I recommend contacting customer service. Marriott has also just announced changes to this beta program which will make it more difficult to earn the maxium 2000 points per 30 days. Following properties will now only net you 25 points. Also if you decide to re-tweet something it has to contain the hashtag #MRpoints. Under the old rules you could reach the 30 day maxium by taking 8 actions on social media. Under the new rules you would have to take 80 actions to reach the maxium. I've decided to give up on this promotion as it is no longer worth the time for me.
You should be all set, capitalraider! Apologies for the delay in my response as I was travelling.
Sorry about that, capitalraider. I thought you were contacted directly but I am checking on it.
I sent a PM to joshm last week and nobody from Marriott contacted me directly. I'm still missing points from before the program changes were made. Since then, I have liked, followed, and checked-in following the new program guidelines, and still no points. Beta or no beta, this is the worst promotion ever and IMHO reflects very poorly of Marriott!
I'll check on that for you as well, muppetwrangler. So sorry for the delay!
According to the new rules, only a social check-in will get you points on facebook. So, I was a bit surprised when I saw this posted on The Lodge at Sonoma Rennaissance Hotel's facebook page a few minutes ago:

It appears that even the participating properties are confused over the rules of this promotion. Any thoughts,The specified item was not found. or KatieC?
Eagle eyes is what they should call you, muppetwrangler! It does look like there might be some confusion. We'll share this with the hotel team directly and will share any feedback here.
Thanks! Also, did they change the rules yet again? Step 2 clearly states that you can earn points for following a social profile on facebook. However, if you look at the overview chart, it shows social check-in only for facebook. Am I reading it wrong? Maybe I need another coffee??

I think vaboywnder got it right when he said this promotion isn't worth the time and effort now.
Yeah, and there just may be some issues in signing up for health care insurance also. KatieC, you and The specified item was not found. are a pleasure to work with. When you guys finish/survive this gig, nothing will be able to stand in your way of success.
Keep on keepin' on.
Thanks for the private message on this, platinumstar. I'm looking into this for you.
