Good News! Chase’s Website Will Tell You Whether or Not You’re Eligible for the Welcome Offer on Marriott Credit Cards

Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full advertising policy: How we make money.

There have been quite a few changes since the Marriott-Starwood merger.  Most notably, for all of us in the miles & points hobby, are the updates to the different Marriott and Starwood credit cards.  The application rules for Marriott cards have gotten more complicated, the card names are changing, and these 2 cards are soon disappearing forever:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express
  • Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Business Credit Card

To put it bluntly, the whole thing has been a bit of a fiasco.

But Chase just introduced a tool that will alert you if you’re ineligible for a sign-up bonus on any Chase Marriott card.  And with the convoluted rules surrounding which Marriott and Starwood cards you can have and when, this should make things a little clearer.

The information for the Marriott Rewards Premier 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.

Chase Marriott Credit Card Bonus Eligibility

What’s great about this is you’ll be alerted before there’s a hard credit pull.  It’s similar to what American Express has been doing since early last year.  So, if you apply for a Marriott credit card but aren’t eligible to earn the welcome bonus, a pop-up will appear asking whether you’d like to continue on with your application.

For more details on the Marriott credit card application rules check out this post.  And you can read more about the upcoming changes to the Marriott and Starwood cards here.

Given the eligibility requirements vary so much from card to card, I think this tool will be incredibly helpful.  Do you?
