Limited Time: Marriott Premier 80,000 Point Offer (but Is It Really a Good Deal?)

For a limited time, Chase has increased the sign-up bonus on the Chase Marriott Rewards Premier and Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Business cards to 80,000 Marriott points after completing minimum spending

To get the new offer, you must apply by August 31, 2015.

But I’ve looked at the fine print and it’s usually NOT a better deal than the regular sign-up bonus.

Million Mile Secrets reader, TB, commented:

 Hi Daraius,
