Quick reminder, all.  You’ve only got until February 12, 2019, to apply for a couple of hotel cards before they’re retired for good.

After that date, the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card will go the way of the dinosaur with the launch of the new Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program and its new credit cards.

Here’s a quick review of what to know before you apply.

The Sun Is Setting on These Valuable Top Hotel Credit Cards – Apply by February 12, 2019 Before They Vanish for Good

Last Chance for the AMEX Starwood and Chase Marriott Business Cards

1.   AMEX Starwood Personal Card

Apply Here:   Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express

Read our review of the AMEX Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card

If you’ve never had the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, now’s your last chance to get it, because the card won’t exist after February 12, 2019.

With the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, you’ll earn 75,000 Marriott points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.  Here’s our full review of the AMEX Starwood Preferred Guest card.

Because of AMEX’s one bonus, per card, per person, per lifetime rule, you’re only eligible if you’ve never had this specific card before.  And there are a few other restrictions you should know about.  The terms for the card say:

[W]elcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had The Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card from Chase, The Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Credit Card from Chase, The Marriott Rewards Credit Card from Chase, or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® Credit Card from JP Morgan in the last 30 days.

You can read more about why to consider the AMEX Starwood card here.  And you can check out the full lineup of new Marriott Bonvoy cards in this post.

2.   Chase Marriott Business Card

The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card is also going away after February 12, 2019.  And similarly, there are rules about who is eligible.

Chase says the card isn’t available to folks who:

  • Are a current cardmember of the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card
  • Were a previous cardmember of the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card who received a new cardmember bonus for this business credit card within the last 24 months
  • Are a current cardmember, or were a previous cardmember within the last 30 days, of The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express;
  • Are a current or previous cardmember of either The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express or the Starwood Preferred Guest® American Express Luxury Card, and received a new cardmember bonus or upgrade bonus in the last 24 months; or
  • Applied and were approved for The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express or the Starwood Preferred Guest® American Express Luxury Card within the last 90 days
Marriott Points Are Handy for Staying at Hotels Like Springhill Suites

You’ll earn 75,000 Marriott points after spending $3,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of opening a Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Business Card.

The information for the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Re: Chase Marriott Business – Bullet point #4…I currently have the SPG Business Card, but I received the bonus 36 months ago. Do I qualify? It says “AND” not “OR”.

Author

Hi Emmanuel – The way I read it, you should be eligible because you haven’t received a bonus in the past 24 months (even though you have a card open) and you haven’t applied for/gotten approved for the SPG business card in the past 90 days.

You could always call Chase to be extra sure.

The good thing is, looks like Chase will tell you during the application process if you’re not eligible for the bonus *before* they do a hard pull on your credit – see this post:

Good luck, please let us know how you make out!
