Just last month Marriott released an offer for their personal credit card. Get 100k points after spending $5000 in the first 3 months of opening the account. This is the highest amount of points offered as a sign-on bonus for this card.
Marriott points have increased in value for me because of their merger with Starwoods Preferred Guest. Marriott points transfer directly to SPG points at a 3:1 ratio. I value my SPG points very highly because of the flexibility they have. Basically, I can transfer my SPG points to ANY airline. Additionally, SPG will give a 5,000 point bonus for every 20,000 point transfer.
The 100,000 Marriott points will essentially become 38,333 airline points! I’m definitely considering applying for this card.
If you’re applying for this card, note that this Marriott Rewards Chase card is subject to the 5/24 rule. So if you have opened 5 cards within the past 24 months, you’ll likely be denied.
