Marriott Rewards member Hunter Swift and his wife, Tina, were just checking into the downtown JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE for a simple “night away from the kids” as Hunter puts it at check-in.

Then… this happened.

Along with the surprise party (complete with a DJ, bellhop acrobats (from Marriott’s movie?), dancers, and staged “party-goers”), Hunter was awarded one million Marriott Rewards points.

How’d he do it? He simply used his Marriott Mobile Check-In. Well, he was the one millionth user to do so.

Great for Hunter…and great for you, as Marriott is giving away another million Marriott Rewards points via its sweepstakes running from April 2, 2015 to December 31, 2015.
