Available once again is a monster six-figure sign-up bonus for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card. You’ll get 100,000 Marriott points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening. That’s 25,000 points more than the previous bonus — and currently the highest offer of any Marriott Bonvoy credit card!

Apply for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card here.

Marriott ran a 100,000 point bonus for this card last January, but this one is better. Its minimum spending requirement is $2,000 less than the previous limited-time offer, so it’s much more accessible. You’ll have to spend an average of $1,000 per month on your card (instead of $1,667) to earn the bonus. We estimate Marriott points are worth an average of 0.8 cents each — making this bonus worth $800. But you can certainly get exponentially more value by studying the best ways to use Marriott points.

Note: The no-annual-fee Marriott Bonvoy Bold™ Credit Card also comes with an increased offer of 50,000 points after spending $1,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening.

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card’s 100,000-point offer

Prices on the Marriott award chart range from 5,000 points for a Category 1 off-peak night to 100,000 points for a Category 8 peak night. In other words, this current offer could get you between one and 20 free nights, depending on the level of glamour you’re after. A realistic expectation for most of us is between two and five nights free. Especially since Marriott offers the fifth night free on award stays!

The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card also comes with an annual free-night certificate when you renew the card (valid at hotels costing up to 35,000 points per night). The free-night certificate alone could justify paying the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card’s annual fee of $95. For example, I used my annual free night to stay at Hotel LeVeque, which routinely costs $200+. I saved $105+ more than I paid in the annual fee from this single benefit. If you know you’ll stay at Marriott at least once per year, this card is a keeper.

The secret power of Marriott points is that you can transfer them to 40+ airlines, most of which offer a 3:1 ratio. In addition, you’ll get 15,000 bonus Marriott points added to every 60,000 points you transfer. In most cases, that’s an extra 5,000 miles, so a 60,000-point transfer would convert to 25,000 miles.

The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless also gives you 15 elite night credits every year you keep the card, which will give you a head start on earning top-tier Marriott Bonvoy elite status. And here’s a secret — you’ll get an additional 15 nights every year by also opening the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card.

COVID-19 benefit enhancements

The card also comes with some added perks due to the coronavirus slowing your travels.

You’ll earn 10 Marriott points per dollar at gas stations and restaurants between July 15 and September 15. You will receive a bonus on up to $3,500 in combined spending in these categories. You’ll also earn 6 Marriott points per dollar at grocery stores on up to $7,500 in spending, but that ends on July 31, 2020.

It’s also worth noting that Marriott has suspended points expiration through February 2021. Also, if you’ve got a free night award that would normally expire this year, Marriott has pushed all expiration to January 31, 2021. And Suite Night Awards you may have earned from Platinum or Titanium Marriott elite status set to expire on December 31, 2020, will now be extended to December 31, 2021.

To learn more about the card read our Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card review and while you’re at it take a look at our guide to the Marriott Bonvoy program. This is a Chase credit card, so it is subject to the Chase 5/24 rule.

Hi if you get the card toward the end of the year. Would they give you the 15 nights toward the current year?

If Marriott and airline points are both worth around 1.5 cents (or even if Mariott points are only 1 cent) then why take a 1-to-3 reduction with a transfer?

Does anyone know if we would receive the 15 elite nights for this card before the end of the year? I know it says within 60 days, but if it actually took 60, it would be in 2020. Need those extra elite nights to post this year…

Had the same question did you receive yours yet?

can I apply to BOTH below cards and get the bonus points from both cards – open within 15 months…

for example:

year one – Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card – Chase

year two – Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card

Yes they are different products so you can earn the bonus points for both, but the free 15 elite nights on both cards don’t stack, you just get it kn one card.

You mentioned in the article “In addition, you’ll get 15,000 bonus Marriott points added to every 60,000 points you transfer.”
is it something new, do we get 15000 marriott points for transferring 60000 marriott points.
