INSIDER SECRET: When booking award stays (on points) with Marriott you’ll get every 5th night free. And this is a discount not a rebate, which means you need to redeem points for 4 nights in order to book 5 nights.
Update: This increased offer has been extended until May 16, 2019.
Until May 2, 2019, there is a limited-time 100,000 Marriott point bonus available with the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card. You will earn the bonus after spending $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.
Personally, I love Marriott points, so I’m also happy to see increased offers on Marriott cards. Marriott cards are issued by Chase and AMEX, and the application rules are a bit convoluted. I’ll explain them to help you figure out if this is the right card for you.
Earn a 100,000 Marriott Point Bonus With the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card
You can apply for the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card here
The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card’s 100,000-point bonus is 25,000 points higher than the previous offer. This is a limited-time offer, so if you’re interested in this card, now is a good time to apply.
In addition to the intro bonus, you’ll also get these perks:
- 6 Marriott points per $1 spent at participating Marriott hotels
- 2 Marriott points per $1 spent on all other purchases
- Automatic Silver Elite Status (10% bonus points on paid stays, late checkout when available)
- Gold Elite Status (25% bonus points on paid stays, guaranteed late check-out, room upgrades when available) when you spend $35,000 on purchases each account year
- 15 elite night credits each calendar year
The card has a $95 annual fee. But every year after your account anniversary, you’ll earn a free night award you can use at participating Marriott hotels costing up to 35,000 points per night. Check out this post to learn more about the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card’s benefits. And read this guide if you need help deciding if the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card is worth it, even with the annual fee.
I really like Marriott points because they are the best hotel points to earn for free flights. And they transfer to a lot of useful airlines that don’t have other transfer partners, like Japan Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
But there are lots of convoluted applications rules for Marriott’s credit cards. First off, this is a Chase card, so it is restricted by the Chase 5/24 rule. That means you won’t qualify for it if you’ve opened 5 or more cards from any bank in the past 24 months (except certain business cards).
You’re also ineligible for a new cardmember bonus for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card if:
- You currently have or have earned a new cardmember bonus in the last 24 months for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless (aka Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus) or Marriott BonvoyTM Premier (aka Marriott Rewards® Premier)
- You currently have or have had in the last 30 days the Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card (aka The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express)
- You’ve earned a new cardmember bonus or upgrade bonus on in the past 24 months for either the Marriott Bonvoy BusinessTM American Express® Card (aka The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express) or Marriott Bonvoy BrilliantTM American Express® Card (aka the Starwood Preferred Guest® American Express Luxury Card)
- You were approved for the Marriott Bonvoy BusinessTM American Express® Card (aka The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express) or Marriott Bonvoy BrilliantTM American Express® Card (aka the Starwood Preferred Guest® American Express Luxury Card) within the last 90 days
