Today was the launch date for the new Marriott Bonvoy program.  Most of the changes that Marriott is making to their rewards program have already been implemented with Marriott’s March 5 yearly award category changes the only adjustment to plan for in the near future.

But with a new loyalty program name Marriott is also rolling out a handful of new offers for their credit cards, including a couple of 100,000-point bonuses for cards like the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card with more to come later this month!  I’ll share with you the details of these new offers and subscribe to our email newsletter to get more in depth reviews as soon as they’re published.

Information for the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets and has not been reviewed by the card issuer.

These Marriott card bonuses are enough to get you a free night at any Marriott hotel, including fancy ones, like the W Washington DC

New Marriott Bonvoy 100,000-Point Credit Card Bonus Offers

Marriott credit cards are issued by AMEX and Chase.  So you’ll want to be aware of those banks application rules before you apply.  For example, American Express only allows you to earn the welcome bonus on a card once per lifetime.  These updates are only changes to the card name and some of the perks, they are not new card products.  So if you’ve had the old version of any of the AMEX Starwood cards, you won’t be eligible for the intro bonus on the new AMEX Marriott Bonvoy version of that specific card.

Even though the new Marriott card applications rules are confusing I wouldn’t stress over it too much.  American Express has a pop-up window that will tell you whether or not you’re eligible for a card’s bonus before they run a credit check.

Here are the new card offers available today.

Marriott Bonvoy Business Card From American Express

The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express is now the Marriott Bonvoy Business Card from American Express.  Through April 24, 2019, you can earn a 100,000-point intro bonus after you spend $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening.

The card also has these benefits:

  • 6 Marriott points per $1 spent on eligible Marriott purchases
  • 4 Marriott points per $1 spent at US gas stations, at US restaurants, on wireless telephone services purchased directly from US service providers and on US purchases for shipping
  • 2 Marriott points per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Free Silver elite status
  • Gold status after making $35,000 in purchases with the card in a calendar year
  • Free award night each cardmember anniversary valid at locations costing up to 35,000 points
  • 15 elite night credits every year
  • Terms Apply

The card has a $95 annual fee (see Rates & Fees) that is waived the first year.

And starting March 28, 2019, there are few changes coming to the card.  First off, you’ll be able to earn a second free night award (for hotels costing up to 35,000 points) after spending $60,000 with the card in a calendar year.  At that same time the annual fee will be going up to $125.

So if you’re interested in this card it’s better to apply for it before March 28th.

  • Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card
  • Chase Marriott Rewards® Premier Business Credit Card

This card comes with the following perks:

This card has a $450 annual fee.

You aren’t eligible for this card’s intro bonus if you have or have had the Ritz-Carlton card in the past 30 days.

You also aren’t eligible it’s welcome bonus if you’ve opened any of the following cards in the past 90 days or have earned a welcome bonus or upgrade bonus from any of these cards in the past 24 months:

  • Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card
  • Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card
  • Marriott Bonvoy Premier Card
  • Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card

Also, today the Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Credit Card became the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card.  And later this month (February 28th) it will have an increased bonus to match the other 2 cards I mentioned.  So if you plan on applying for that card, I would wait until the bonus goes up.

I called to cancel my AMEX SPG personal account because I want to be eligible for the sign up bonus later on. I was told I would receive a Free Night Certificate on my anniversary date next month. So I kept the card.

Should I cancel it after I get the certificate so as to be eligible for a sign up bonus perhaps?

My wife just applied and got approved yesterday for Marriott Chase visa with the 75K bonus. Can we get the higher bonus when released since card is close to window of release? or should we cancel card and wait a couple weeks for the extra 25k and possible other perks?

If you get the Marriott Business card before Mar.24 are you grandfathered in at the $95 annual fee every year in the future?

I have the Ritz Card and I think it will remain the same. $450 annual fee, but the $300 reimbursement is with (any) airline and not Marriott expenses.
