How do you earn rewards points?

Poll created by nationwide on Sep 6, 2016

The Fall 2016 MegaBonus was announced with flat to disappointing reviews, and it got me thinking about all the myriad ways we earn Marriott Rewards points.  Please share with everyone how many different ways you earn points by marking the option that best applies to you. 

 

Note, because our poll construct doesn’t allow for you to select multiple boxes, I’ve simply omitted the last entry in descending order.  If I've missed some earnings opportunities that you find beneficial, and that is entirely possible, please share your thoughts on additional earnings opportunities in the comments.
