Which of These 2 Marriott Card Offers is The Better Deal?

Considering the Chase Marriott Premier Rewards card?  There’s a new offer available, and instead of earning Marriott points as a sign-up bonus, you can earn 2 free night stays and a $200 statement credit after meeting minimum spending requirements.

The 80,000 Marriott points sign-up bonus offer is still available too.  So which is the better deal?

The 2 Free Night Stays That You Can Earn With the New Offer for the Chase Marriott Card are ONLY Valid for Category 1 to 5 Marriott Hotels. Like the Courtyard San Diego Central.

I’ll explain the details of the new offer, and help you decide which deal makes the most sense for you.

New Hotel Card With “3 Free Nights” Bonus

Looking for more Club Carlson points?  Via Reddit, there’s a new no-annual-fee Club Carlson Rewards card with a 30,000 Club Carlson point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements.

The card bonus is being marketed as good for “up to 3 free award nights.”

It’s true the bonus is enough for 3 free nights at a Club Carlson Category 1 hotel of 9,000 Club Carlson points per night.  But it’s NOT enough for an award night at nicer Category 4 or higher Club Carlson hotels.


The Sign-Up Bonus From the No-Annual-Fee Club Carlson Rewards Card Is Worth 3 Free Nights at a Category 1 Club Carlson Hotel, Like the Country Inn & Suites in Tulsa, Oklahoma

So is the new Club Carlson Rewards card worth it?  I’ll share the details of the card, and help you decide whether getting it makes sense for you.

We don’t earn a commission on any of the Club Carlson cards, but we’ll always tell you about new deals that might interest you!
