I saw this on FT, could not find on DD, it still seems to be active, do you consider a good deal?

Dan? What do you think?  It looks like for 50000 points you could get 5 nights in a cheap hotel but I dont know about availability etc plus every year there is a free night.

Not a bad offer, but I'd rather save my Chase churns for more valuable currencies than Marriott.  Not really a fan of their program.  30K CO+$50 cash back+fee waived is much much better than 50K Marriott+$65 fee.

Thanks, are there any other good bonuses on hotel cards? I know you link the spg card you like, but looks like the 25k bonus is only with 15k spend which I'm not prepared to do.

SPG is by far the most valuable hotel currency, which is what makes their credit card so lucrative.
Hilton, PC, Marriott, Choice, etc, points are all worth well south of a penny each.  Besides SPG I think just Hyatt is worth more than a penny each.
Title: Marriott Rewards(r) Credit Card from Chase: 50,000 bonus points + free night
Post by: moto on May 17, 2012, 08:45:55 AM
Sign up for the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card from Chase and earn 50,000 bonus points after you make your first purchase. Plus, receive a free night stay upon account approval, and another free night stay on your account anniversary. Together, that's enough for up to eight nights for free and the best such offer we've ever seen from Chase. (50,000 reward points are enough for six nights at a category 1 hotel; the free night credit for account approval is valid for stays at category 1 to 4 hotels, while the account anniversary credit is valid on category 1 to 5 hotels.) Plus, earn 5 points for every $1 spent at Marriott locations, 2 points for every $1 spent on eligible dining, airline, and rental car purchases, and 1 point for every $1 spent on all other purchases. Other card features include earning 15 nights credit toward your next Elite membership level every year, an additional Elite Night Credit for every $3,000 spent per year, and no foreign transaction fees. There's no annual fee for the first year, but an $85 annual fee applies for each additional year.

There was recently an offer for 70,000 plus a free night and I think it may even still be available. But this is probably the best offer ever with a referral link

Sm them. Tell them that you applied for this card with such and such a offer and now you see there offering this offer, can they give it to you as well. I've done this multiple times for myself and others and never got declined. Include a link to the application with the new offer

I got 50K offer so this seems good.

There should definitely be a Marriott thread. There are tons of new threads about the card with just 1 question asked and like 1 answer. Then it dies, till someone else starts a new thread to ask their Q.

Title: Marriott card + 70,000 points
Post by: Mutty on November 07, 2013, 10:24:08 PM
Wanted some advice. I got a card from Marriott in the mail about getting the premier credit card, spend 1000 in 3 months and get 70,000 points. I already have 20,000 so that would bring me to 90,000. (I believe it's the same offer on their website without getting a card in the mail). Anyway, is it worth getting the "hit" and getting the card and miles? I didn't notice this in any other thread. If it is, please point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Don't remember how I matched - it was all Dan's fault! I spent a week just matching where I could based on threads hereabouts.
As far as rooms, or gelt, etc, that's why I'm asking for advice. Should I take a hit for this card and end up with 90,000 or just save up for the next great AA or Starwoods promotion. Is it worth it? I also liked the way they sent me a "special" offer in the mail that is identical to the one everyone can get online at their site.

If it's one or the other in general I'd recommend SPG over Marriott. That being said why not do the Marriott now as part of a 3bm? Unless there are better Chase cards out there you want to apply for. It all depends on your needs.

I smed again to get matched  To 80k offer- and was told I will be matched after I spend 3000$ (as the 50k only needed $1k spent) ,

Is 10k bonus miles worth spending 2k on this card?

That is so relative.. Go to marriott.com and check how many points it costs to stay at the hotels YOU like.
Also check YOUR finances and see how easy/hard it is to spend 2k...

So I got the card(s). I called them because this one is for 80,000 with one free night after spending 3000 in 3 months and first year fee of 85 not waived. Then I got in mail 70,000 for spending 1000 with no first year fee. SO they said they'll send me a letter. Got the letter. It says they won't change it to 70,000. I'll get 80,000 for 3,000 3 month spend. They also said NO fee for first year. On that I'll just wait and see.

I just applied for Marriot and received the card. It was for 50k. I understand if I SM to get it matched to 70k then it would work (thanks Marco.) I just want to know (before I SM) - what's the deal with the 80k offer? I am a little confused by the posts above. Can someone sum it up? Thanks
Title: Re: Marriott Rewards Card
Post by: Jay s on March 21, 2014, 08:05:50 AM
The 80k offer is for spending 3k so if you you want to spend another 2k for 10k points ask them for that offer. If you ask to be matched to that offer you won't be charged the usual first year fee for the 80k offer

Make sure that youre on the Residence inn side of the building. The courtyard side doesnt have central park views.

Call them up, see what they can do. For pending $, I got Chase to push my bonus through but that was for a Chase card (SP) and the reason was to visit grandfather shortly after grandmother passed away. Prob YMMV with the rep. Maybe you find someone who says awww it's your honeymoon? Sure I'll help. Although, again, pushing UR points through might be diff than Marriott.

I have the regular Marriott card which has a 15 year credit history - gives age to my profile. It was my only card prior to this.

New to forum and had a question on Marriott card - Hope its ok on this thread.  I just got approved for a Bold Ink Card last week. I got a offer for 70K miles on Marriott Premier. I have the regular Marriott card which has a 15 year credit history - gives age to my profile. It was my only card prior to this. Is there a way to get my old account upgraded instead of opening a new account.  and having 2. I dont think I would want to close the 15 yr old card.
1) Upgrading will not get you the bonus points. 2) I don't think you should close it either, call Chase and see what they can offer to do with this card.

i signed up for the 70k offer, i sm'd to match to the 80k offer and i got a response that as a courtesy they will give me an extra 20k after i spend $3000 and i should sm back when i reach that spend.
70+20 = 90
do i have a chance of getting the extra 10k or will they realize that its a mistake

Question is whether they'd clawback the points for realizing it. If they won't then there's no reason why not to ask.

I close this card 16 months ago & wasn't able to use my free night certificate because i never made plans and the cert was expired. Is there a way to open up a new account with the same name & address but different email? I'll need a Free night in order to cover my upcoming stay for free :) Can someone please help?

Just an FYI to all:

I got this card because I wanted to stay at Marriott Marquis in NYC for sentimental reasons. Last week, we used the free 1-4 night in RI at a place  30 minutes from Newport, RI (link below). They upgraded us to a 2 BR/2 Bath suite which was lovely and included free breakfast. Anyone able to make the trip, I would say was well worth it.

there are a few near monsey. (mahwah, montvale, paramus) But, I would hardly consider that area a "place to go" plus why waste the free night on a cat. 2 or 3 fairfield or courtyard. If your just looking for a nice relaxing local place, I would highly recommend the Residence Inn Plainview, NY. It's right central LI, located right near Jones beach and drivable to eastern LI (montauk etc.) I went there for shabbos a few weeks ago, we davened at YI of Plainview. There is also a local pizza place under VHQ and I think there is a meat place. On sunday we checked out a local county fair which was enjoyed by the adults and kids alike, and then went to an aviation museum  nearby.
The hotel itself, while very unassuming from the outside is quite nice on the interior- lobby and suites. we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom 1.5 bath executive suite with a full kitchen and balcony, while my friend was upgraded to the 2 bedroom suite.

Hi,

I was approved for my card about 2 weeks ago for the
70,000 bonus points. My friend told me that he was
offered a signup bonus of 80,000 points after he
spent $3,000. Can I be matched for that
bonus offer?

What's better to do? I received an offer from Marriot to sign up friends and get 10,000 per signup up to five. I figured my wife could sign up. I get 10,000, she gets 50,000 after 1,000 spend. Or, I think I saw a 70,000 for a 2,000 spend. Now I see folks are requesting 80,000 for a 3,000 spend. Which would be better? And of course one year free, then can chuck the card. Also, does anyone know if my wife and I can give the points to each other.

Very difficult to transfer with marriott. They allow spouses to transfer but only at the time of the reservation.... And IIRC you need to fax in some sort of proof of address.

I think ur not right, because while they're a reservation in place they let "everyone" transfer points spouses can always transfer.

you can make a reservation online without the points. But you need to call, fill out and send them a form in order to transfer points.

I think that officially Marriott allows you to "gift" a room to other people.
I did it once and had no issues.
 
So while there is still a purpose in transferring points between accounts, I think that just booking for the other person is the simplest.

--------------------------------
Dear Chase,

I am pleased to inform you that I have succeeded spending $3,000 within the first 3 months of opening
my account and I am therefore eligible for an enrollment offer to receive 80,000 points.

As I was instructed in our previous communication, I am replying with this information in order to process
my offer.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center, of course. ;)

Thank you,

Welder xxxxxx

Just got this card with the 50k link.

When I call up now to have them expedite the card, they tell me they see my application is still pending, and it's not showing up in my online accounts area yet. Anyone had this, I got the instant approval message, and credit line of 5k. The app status line tells me I will be notified in approx 2 weeks.

Marriott points IMO are undervalued by most people.
I found very decent places in great locations (eg. Miami) that have redemptions between 1.5cpp to 2cpp.

Marriott has WAY more hotels than SPG, Hyatt, etc. You can find Marriotts everywhere.
And they also have way more high-end hotels in prime locations.

Definitely makes me reconsider transferring Chase points to book.
And makes the SPG 25k look extremely lousy compared to 80k Marriott.

I happen to really like the Marriott cc I just got my 3rd and I'm planning to go for the ritz carlton now!
I can't say that I ever found redemption for 1.5 to 2 cpp but I definitely found for more then 1 cpp though I do believe that you found.

Just FYI:

Applied about a month ago for the public 50K/1K offer, SM'd a few days ago and was matched for the 70K/2K offer.
Yesterday, I saw that some were matched for 80K/3K, so I SM'd and was just matched.

If I decide It's not worth it for me, right now, to spend 1K for another 10K, I could always do the 70K/2K, I guess.

Was approved on this 14th, I believe, so the 1st statement hasn't closed yet.
SM'd the first time, (before I even activated the card) on Fri. I think.
SM'd second time yesterday. Right now, only have $200 posted transaction and another $800-$900 pending. Don't think it had anything to do with that though.

I got one when I first got the card (I think after the spend). I actually extended it twice, 6 months each, but the second time was tougher. Had a good reason so they gave it to me. The second was from having the card for a year. It does sound like it's worth keeping. Someone else was discussing moving Marriot points into United. Is that something that can be done?

Oh.
Yes but you'll loose like 60%, 100k Marriott will convert to like 40k United (an estimate) so it might not always be the best redemption, though at time one will argue it is especially if u never really use hotels.
Unless you're looking into buying one of those pkgs, for like 300k which will get u 7 nights hotel and airfare and an additional 110 UA miles (again an estimate)

Most likely not, as the hotel can't process it properly. At least that was my experience. A upgrade once you use the certificate for the right category can definitely be done, however getting them to honor for a higher category will be MUCH harder.

A rep told me that very recently it moved up from 6 months to 1 year. But if you got yours when it had a 6 month expiration, it's grandfathered into that expiration and won't get bumped up to a year.

The anniversary night is worth the AF. Same with the IHG card also from Chase.

Nevertheless, I closed my Marriott (yes, after using anniversary night, plus getting retention offer, plus getting AF back) NOT because I wanted the AF back so much but because I am a big believer now in not having too many cards open with Chase. Marriott is not a card that I put regular spend on so I got rid of it. Next time they have an 80k sign-up bonus, maybe I'll get one for my wife. Just my two cents.

If you don't want so many cards with chase because of the new "5 cards in 2 years" rule, then I think it doesn't matter whether you close the chase cards. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think it's having 5 cards open within two years, not 5 'open' cards within 2 years...  What is the correct info??

If you are looking for a card for everyday spend then I wouldn't get the marriott card. if you just want the signup bonus the card could become worth it.

FWIW, I agree the SPG is far more valuable. The problem is there are far fewer SPG hotels and they're frequently not convenient to where I have to to travel.
Hence SPG gives you 25k signup bonus and Marriott 80k.
So just taking the signup bonus in consideration not everyday spend like 12HRS says
If you are looking for a card for everyday spend then I wouldn't get the marriott card. if you just want the signup bonus the card could become worth it.
25k SPG valued at a minimum redemption of 2.1 cpp is worth $525
80k Marriott valued at a minimum redemption of 1 cpp is worth $800 (even if you come down to 0.9 cpp which is very easy to find it's still @ least $700)
So just for the signup bonus Marriott is worth way more.

I currently have 170K Marriott points (between me and my spouse) and they sent me something about them expiring in January and their new expiration policy (something about having to be used within a year or 18 months) and I was wondering how I can extend that date? would signing up for this card help? Thanks
It will help, as long as you meet the spend in time, to get the points to post to your account, before the exp. date.

Thanks and off topic question but for the miles and points program its a minimum of 7 nights but because you typically get 5 nights for 4. so would you get 8 nights for 7 in this scenario?

A couple questions about the Marriott card:

Regarding the $85 yearly fee for the 80k offer, does that get charged right away or at the end of the year?

It seems from some posts online that the lower offers such as 70k and 50k do not come with
yearly fees. Is this true? Someone posted that he applied for the lower point offer and got them to
match the higher amount. So he doesn't pay the yearly fee.  Anyone know if this works? Is it hard to get them to do match it?

I know that every year of owning the card you get a free night in a category 1-5 location. I read elsewhere that
you also receive one night free  in a category 1-4 location for first time signing up. Can anyone confirm?
(Do you not receive this if you have had the card before)?

thanks to whomever answers!

The current offer has the AF charged right away as opposed to at the end if the year as the lower/older offers.

It seems from some posts online that the lower offers such as 70k and 50k do not come with
yearly fees. Is this true?
not true, it is only waived for the first year.
 Someone posted that he applied for the lower point offer and got them to
match the higher amount. So he doesn't pay the yearly fee.  Anyone know if this works? Is it hard to get them to do match it?
Generally (till around a month ago) they would match anyone and everyone that asked even once to a higher offer for more spend, though now that they changed the offer to 80k with AF for first year it is anyone's guess if they'll still match.
And you have to find an offer fir only 50k it might be very hard.

I know that every year of owning the card you get a free night in a category 1-5 location. I read elsewhere that
you also receive one night free  in a category 1-4 location for first time signing up. Can anyone confirm?
Yes, you get a 1-4 for first year ane a 1-5 every anniversary.
Though there are conflicting reports if the current offer also has a 1-4 for the first year.
(Do you not receive this if you have had the card before)?
Just like all the cobranded cards you have to wait 24 months from having it last or change your FFN.

thanks to whomever answers!

Marriot website is showing 20% bonus for transferring marriot points to United. Some bloggers are mentioning 25% bonus and I don't know where they get 25% bonus.


I have 143k points from my Chase ritz card and tried to transfer to United but the website allows max of 112k marriot points transfer.

The 8000 transfer wouldn't be a good value either way. Only decent value from 24k and up imo.

So even if I transfer 1436 or 144k, i will only get 20k UA miles from this promo?

Is the max 20k miles  per transfer or per account?

Ok, thanks. Wish there was no limit to the 25% bonus so i could get more for my almost 144K marriot points.

I am canceling the ritz card next year and have no stays at marriot properties. I read their benefits and even though gold membership is supposed to give breakfast. there are so many marriot hotels and properties that don't provide this benefit and it is too confusing.  Not like hilton where gold means gold.

For your 144k marriott points you should still be able to get the full 25% bonus, most you would get is about 15.5k bonus.

You would only get a bonus on transferring 136k, because bonus amount only goes for transfers of 5,000 United miles and up. So if u transfer 136k u will get 75,000 and for 144k you will get 77,000.

Not a bad offer, but I'd rather save my Chase churns for more valuable currencies than Marriott.  Not really a fan of their program.  30K CO+$50 cash back+fee waived is much much better than 50K Marriott+$65 fee.

How good is your overall credit?

You can never take auto approval for granted (accept for Amex) yet we still churn all the time.

Last apps were end of July, both with Chase (by the time I'd apply for Marriott it will have been over a month). Credit is ~749 (that's what Barclays gave me as of a few months ago and it hasn't been updated since).

Hello Guys,

I have the Ritz card and it coming up for AF. I cannot get away with no AF in the 2nd year - even with my lowered CL. So, I was thinking of closing my Ritz card and getting the 80K Marriot card. Will this work? They seem to be separate cards - no? Will I lose my 140K of Ritz points if I close the ritz card? Can I put my ritz account into the marriot app and will that allow me to get to 220K when I sepnd 3K on the card?

TIA!

I transferred  136K Marriot points to UA and registered for 25% bonus. I  now have little less than 8K Marriot points left which I couldn't transfer.

 It seems , the transfer is not instant.How long does  it take to have the points converted to miles  and when will I see the 25% bonus miles?

Thanks

Hi everyone-
sorry if this was addressed somewhere already but i couldn't find any relevant posts on this -
I have the marriott rewards premier card, and i'm just about at the 1st anniversary date so they credited my reward account with the free night for the anniversary, but I haven't been charged the annual fee yet.
Do you think i would be able to cancel the card now and get out of the annual fee (or have it deeply prorated), while still keeping the free night in my reward account (as well as all of my existing marriott reward points)??

Thanks!

Cool thanks a lot.  Anyone have any advise re the effect on credit score to close out this card (25k credit line) after a year?  Am I better off holding on to the card for now and reaping the annual free nights in exchange for the annual fee as opposed to closing it out now and taking a potential hit to credit score (and let's assume that I'll be looking to take out a mortgage in about 2 years).

not sure if i'm special or this is common knowledge and i just found out but i called them to cancel my card and was told that if i keep it open, they will give me 5k bonus points if i use the card 15x within the next 90 days, starting next Monday. i would still be charged the $85 af. i told them i'll think about it. i have till 12/1/15 to close it.
is this standard?
can i press for more bonus points or is it set?
if i ask for the promotion and cancel, anyone have experience with the points staying there?

The point is it will add on to your existing points. It's not meant to be a free night at a Ritz Carlton. It's 6000 extra points

I get that. I was trying to  make the point that their points are very devalued (not worth much). In comparison, 6,000 SPG or 6,000 HGP really gets you something.

True. Its technically not even worth the spend as SPG points are worth way more than double Marriott points

Also, I was pleasantly surprised that it's a metal card, A nice touch.

Unless your saying it doesn't come up in the system as such, and it's the rep. saying it in their own, although it didn't sound like that on the phone.

I'm mostly a lurker, but thought I'd share that if anyone is looking to get the Marriott Rewards Card my husband has 5 referrals available that will give you 80,000 bonus points if you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months after approval. If you'd like a referral, let me know.  :)

From the solicitation:
WE'LL ALSO OFFER EACH FRIEND 80,000 BONUS POINTS
When they spend $3,000 on purchases with their card in the first three months from account opening, they'll get the bonus.

Thank you!
First of all, this is a public offer available through Dan's referral link.

EMAIL  says

If you'd like a different credit line, you can discuss your options with a Customer Service Specialist by calling the number on the back of your card.

None of my other cards had this, is this standard or can I call and ask for 15k instead of 5?

Just in case this affects anyone else, I just recently churned this card and last night got a letter from Chase that since I have qualified for bonus before, I am not eligible again. I freaked out, checked the original T&C which state that as long as I do not have card, or received bonus in past 24 months (usual language), I am eligible. I think this is my first churn, so I got nervous that they're on to me, or Chase is cracking down, etc. Then this morning, I called, and rep said they're getting a million calls bc they sent out a bunch of letters by mistake, including mine.  Phew 8)

I got the 80k + 7.5k in March and I have until June 9 for bonus spend.
1) If I sign up an authorized user do I have to wait for card activation to make 1 purchase and get the 7.5k or can I do it as soon as I get off the phone.
2) Do all the 80k offers come with a cat. 1-4 certificate upon activation? I don't see it in my account.
3) I completed the spend yesterday. Can I set the statement date for the 1st of the month (currently the 25th) and have this statement close after just one week, so I can get the 80k points sooner?

I got the personal Marriott about a month ago, called in about a week ago when they announced the 100k business offer.

The rep asked me for details, then said they would match after 5k (took my word for it without realizing I was talking about a business version). Called back a few days later after meeting increased spend, they referred it to the marketing department who approved the match.

You don't need the card to transfer point over, just a mariott account.

Yep, did this and got Marriott Gold status with zero Marriott points. I then transferred my husband's orphan Marriott points to his SPG and his points to my SPG. Might as well put them in the account with status.

SPG Gold matches to Marriott Gold - SPG Gold can be attained with the AMEX Platinum cards.

Like yuguy said, I matched via SPG. I have a Marriott account but no Marriott CCs or points. I got Gold with SPG due to spend versus the Plat. Plan on getting Marriott Business and possibly Ritz but hoping they go back to points versus free nights.

I am aware that closing the card will not solve my 5/24 problem, it was a question of is the AF worth paying or not worth the benefits of the card, either due to the future with SPG merge or with the free night? I am assuming, if I close the card I will not be able to open it again in the future

Unlike the Hyatt cat 1-4 anniversary cert, I find the Marriott 1-5 cert to be way less useful (inflation of award chart and all). If you're going to struggle to find a use for your cert, especially that which is over the value of the annual fee on the Marriott card, it may be best to cancel... Do you have an SPG card that will, in some form of another, probably become a Marriott card?

Spg =25k bonus+5k spend= 30k

Seems that the 5X is better than the 80k bonus, and better than SPG.  SPG converts 1-3 into Marriott, so earning 5 for each $ is better than using SPG.  What am I missing?

Because you would have to spend 48,000$ to catch up. For signing up you get 80,000+7,500 for an AU, +2,000 on the actual spending. 90k Marriott > 30k spg.

For every dollar you spend on spg, that's 3 Marriott points, so with this card you're really only gaining .6 spg per dollar spent. To beat an offer of 30k spg, u have to do 50k of spending.

It is better to get the 80,000 point offer because you get around 90,000 points with just 2-3K spend. Then you can put the rest of the 30K on your SPG or other card you use for everyday spend.

Got an offer for 107.5k/$5k in my email.

Applied and was approved about a week ago for the 87.5k/$4k offer.  What's likelihood Chase matches to this offer?  Slim to none?
Title: Re: Marriott Rewards Card
Post by: mileagejunkie on March 22, 2017, 12:15:21 AM
Considering people have been matched to 80k from 50k I'd say pretty high. SM them that you got it in your email and see.

Was there any significant time before you received and/or activated the card? You might say it took an inordinate amount of time to reach you and therefore your bonus period should be extended.

I got an offer for 10x Points up to 120K in my first year (so on first $12K of spending) with $85 AF waived first year and free cert on anniversary. Interestingly, after the first 12K will earn 5x on marriott and spg spend (which seems worse than SPG card earning 2x).

Certainly helps the the AF is waived the first year for this offer, but downside is the higher spend.  It still works out to be more points overall, and helps that you have the entire year to spend $12k:

-120k offer will yield 127.5k points (incl AU card) after spending $12k (no $85 AF)

-80k offer will yield 90.5k points (incl AU card) after spending $3k (plus $85), then you could spend $9k on an SPG (for net $12k spend) to get an additional 27k Marriott points for a total of 117.5k points

= difference of 10k Marriott points and $85

Title: Re: Marriott Rewards Card

Seems the 75k offer with AF waived is public.
https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/marriottpremier?CELL=679Z&nck=161950362&ck=23574057&lk=1000265014
By comparison the 75k offer will yield 85.5k points (incl AU card) after spending $3k, then you could spend $9k on an SPG (for net $12k spend) to get an additional 27k Marriott points for a total of 112.5k points with no AF
-120k offer will yield 127.5k points (incl AU card) after spending $12k (no $85 AF)

-80k offer will yield 90.5k points (incl AU card) after spending $3k (plus $85), then you could spend $9k on an SPG (for net $12k spend) to get an additional 27k Marriott points for a total of 117.5k points

= difference of 10k Marriott points and $85
Effectively with each spending 12k
80k offer =117.5k with $85 AF for year 1 - 10k and $85 behind, 12k not required
75k offer =112.5k with no $85 AF for year 1 - 15k behind, 12k not required.
120k offer =127.5k with $85 AF for year 1
Max return, but requires nearly 12k spend to come out ahead.

If you send in something that isn't listed in the letter as 'what they are looking for', it will reduce your chances and probably raise their suspicions. What they really want is an LRT 147 C from the IRS, but they will work with you if you can convince them you have a business.

I got an email offer to upgrade to the "new marriot rewards premier plus card" and receive 20k bonus. It's $10 more annually. Is it worth it? Will I be losing opportunity to apply for this card and receive much larger bonus? If I upgrade will it count as 5/24? Thanks.

1. Compare the value of the old annual night to the new one.
2. No
3. No

Re #2, Chase will allow me to reapply for the same card once I close it?
I see this question was brought up on DDMS (https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/marriott/get-100000-point-signup-bonus-chase-marriott-rewards-premier-plus-credit-card/#comment-1354150), although there doesn't seem to be a firm conclusion...

On the application site it says that if you received a bonus for the other Marriott card in the last 24 months you're ineligible for the new card. Is that false?

Your username fits ;)

no clue. I assume they are the same product and as such if you are within 24months you would not be eligible.  I was talking about someone who is past 24 months.

Just to clarify:
1) If you're within 24 months of SU bonus on original card, you can upgrade for bonus but not get new 100K signup, but
2) If you're not within 24 months, you can first upgrade for 20K, then drop the card and get it again for 100K??

2) If you're not within 24 months, you can first upgrade for 20K, then drop the card and get it again for 100K??
Here's the language: "The product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of the Marriott Rewards Premier or Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of the Marriott Rewards Premier or Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card who received a new cardmember bonus within the last 24 months."

Seems pretty straightforward that anyone who got the bonus from the old card in the last 24 months is not eligible to get the bonus on the new card.

So if you got the card about a year ago and upgrade you will at least have to wait another year to reapply, right? The only question is if you already have the card for over two years, right?

Could use some serious help here...

I got the new Marriott card about a month ago. I've almost spent 5K (probably will hit the spend by tomorrow) but I need the bonus points ASAP. I was dumb and in my excitement I booked a Marriott Category 8 for my honeymoon, thinking I would get the points on time. My statement closes August 9th, and that's the first night of my reservation... Anyway that I can get the points before then???

Posted this on another thread but figured that it applies here too:

My wife hit the 5k spend threshold for Marriott 100k point offer within the past few days but her most recent statement closed on the 4th of August before hitting the bonus amount. I want to be able to transfer the full amount into my SPG before the merger because I am Gold and would be limited to 50k after the merger. Is it possible to call chase and have my next statement close today (9 days after my previous statement) and then have the points post and transfer before the merger?

Not sure if anyone can help with this scenario:

.  Applied for the Chase Premier Plus card on August 14  -- was not instantly approved but told they were processing it
.  Was sent a letter (dated August 16) indicating they wanted to verify that I applied for the card
.  I was out of town so didn't call them back until today (Sept 3) and was approved on the phone

Will the post August 26th eligibility rules apply to my card?  Since I applied before the rules, I am hoping the pre-Aug 26th cross ineligibility rules won't apply


***EDIT*** UPDATE************************************************************************
I SM'ed Chase and they replied that since I applied prior to August 26th the old rules would apply.

it doesn't matter when you applied as long as you got the bonus then you are under the new terms. There was a 3 day window when the terms didn't apply but now they do

I recently applied for Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business card and the Freedom Unlimited Business at the same time and got denied for the Freedom,, Though thats the one I wanted more. Marriott card was on a whim, cuz I don't need it for hotels - I already have an SPG Business and SPG pers. I was thinking the 75K bonus worth it even if just transferring to airlines and some of their bonus categories are good (4x gas etc)
 The reason for denial of the Freedom was   -   too many cards open already and/or too many recent requests.

Has anyone had experience with this - as I'd like to request cancel the Marriott and just get Freedom.

You can't reverse the application, so it'll be pointless to cancel, but you can try to recon...

If you don't have any specific plans in mind, the 100k. If you search for places you could use the certificate and find something you like, then the referral. Keep in mind many properties go up in 2 days and Cat 5 properties could charge 'peak' pricing of 40k meaning you can't use your certificate those nights. You can't just add another 5k in points.

I booked a category 5 hotel the night before the hotel went up to a 6 using a free night. I made a few bookings for a few dates that I may want as I have multiple free nights. Now I got an email that due to COVID-19 the hotel is closed for those dates and my reservation is cancelled. The issue now is that I wont be able to rebook that hotel because it went up in catergory. Is there any way that they would let me rebook later?

OK, I have the Bonvoy Boundless card, which I got when I was spending a lot of time in hotels for work. Not currently doing that, nor planning on doing it again anytime soon.

Debating downgrading the card to the no-AF version, though it doesn't have the free annual night. I know the annual night is worth a lot, but honestly, I don't even know if/when I'd use it.

Wanted to hear the thoughts of those more experienced in this game than I am.

Two points:
1) you might as well try for a retention offer like I just got here (https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=1572.msg2297673#msg2297673)
2) you can try to sell your free night here (https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=30336.0) and if your just looking to break even or make a very small profit, you will probably have takers.
