I am new to this service, and I need some advice.
Stay in a Marriott or SPG property. Sign up for the Marriott Rewards Credit Card (1 free night stay on your anniversary with the card) plus you can receive up to 6x the points for all Marriott spend on the card. Participate in the "promotion" bonus programs when they're announced by Marriott to multiple your points for stays or nights in a Marriott. Stay at properties that award you maximum points (10x base points) vice properties that only award you 5x base points (like the Residence Inn). Opt in for the Green Service to earn more points by waiving daily housekeeping during your stay to once/twice a week. Keep at eye out on Insiders for other insider tips on maximizing your points. Don't forget, when you stay 4 nights, you get the 5th night free (paid or redeemed stays). Sign up for Free Nights for New Members which gives you a free night after two stays (Join Marriott Rewards. Earn a Free Night.). Hope that helps. Cheers!
free-night earn a free night after 2 paid stays earning points maximize points and nights
Probably one of the quickest ways is to acquire a credit card with a good signup bonus and use those points. Otherwise, acquire points through stays, promotions, credit card, etc. These are through point redemption, if that is considered "free". The only actual "free night" that I know of is the one year anniversary night for the credit card which is not really quick.
