Do You Know About the 140,000 Points Ritz-Carlton Card?

If you are planning award stays at Ritz-Carlton or Marriott hotels, now is a great time to apply for the Chase Ritz-Carlton Rewards card.  There are 4 different offers available now, and some of them are very good!

One of these offers has a sign-up bonus of 140,000 points!  That’s enough for 2 nights in a top-tier Ritz-Carlton hotel, or 7 nights in a middle category Marriott hotel.  You could even stretch the points to get 23 PointSaver nights in a category 1 Marriott!

And if a couple each get the 140,000 point card, they could combine points and have enough to access Marriott Hotel + Air Packages, which can get you a 7-night hotel stay and airline miles!  I’ll explain how!

The Best 50,000 (or More!) Miles and Points Credit Cards

One of the easiest ways to get a lot of miles and points quickly is by applying for credit cards with large sign-up bonuses.  We’ve seen lots of great sign-up bonuses over the last few weeks!

But the Marriott 70,000 point offer ends later today, so I’ve made a list of my favorite current offers with big (50,000 or more) miles and point sign-up bonuses.  Some of these are increased offers that are only available for a limited time!
