When Will My Marriott Elite Credits Earned Through Spending Actually Post?

A Million Mile Secrets reader got in touch with us through Facebook and asked:

The Chase Marriott Rewards card credits 1 night towards elite status for each $3,000 you spend.  Marriott says the charges are reported by credit card billing cycle.  But Chase says they report every calendar month.

The difference can be significant in achieving elite status levels.  Can you comment if you know the real answer?

According to Chase, your elite night credit will be applied to your account 6 to 8 weeks after the statement closes in which you’ve earned the elite night credit.  So if you want to earn more elite night credits through spending on your Chase Marriott card this year, it may already be too late!

When Will My Marriott Elite Credits Earned Through Spending Actually Post

Marriott Elite Status Can Come in Handy, Because Marriott Has Lots of Great Hotels All Over the World!

I’ll tell you what I found out about when the Chase Marriott card posts elite night credits.
