    I got one too. It does appear to be legit.

    It would appear that Morgan K. Ward, PhD is a professor in the Cox School of Business at SMU. Her research runs toward consumer choices, spending, and preference, so I'd say yes, it's legit.

    77paris thanks for the tag and ivanchu02 I appreciate you asking and giving us this info. This is not a legitimate survey from Marriott. I've forwarded it so that it can be reported. Please delete this if you receive it.

      NathalieF Maybe someone from the greater team should get in touch with Dr. Ward at SMU and let her know (or let her respond). She is legit -- or at least her email address is.

      Thought the Survey was legit and just received 1,000 points in my account.  If the Survey was indeed not legit and the purveyors can actually award points they can also take away points.  Can we get more clarification here?  As always, appreciate your help.

    Let me know too.  I filled it out and they asked for the reward number.  Thought it was legit....

      Looks like this survey was legit as my 1,000 points posted on my account today. For those who filled it out check your accounts.

    NathalieF & to all that were concerned or curious about this email - I did,  uncharacteristically, reply & completed the survey.  Perhaps, it was legitimate?  I had concerns but I was credited with 1000 points today for a "Retail Survey".

     

    bubbie, I see you received.  Anyone else?

      This is concerning to me, although I did not get or respond to any survey.  If several of you were credited with 1000 points for filling out the survey, then it obviously had to have been done with the cooperation of Marriott Rewards.  Professor Ward can't award Marriott Rewards points on her own.

       

      So then how does NathalieF check into it and report back that the survey is not legitimate?

       

      Is this a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing?

    I just checked and got 1,000 points for completing the Retail Survey.

    So if it was legit how did our NathalieF get information from the "Greater Team" that it was a hoax when in fact folks got their 1,000 points? HMMMMM

    The survey's legitimacy could be confirmed by their decision to exclude "fools" like me!  If it was fake I would have received it.
