Huge Marriott Rewards® Bonus Offer

Want to earn a ton of Marriott points on everyday shopping items? 

Thanks to a HUGE bonus offer opportunity, now you can!

The Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card​ is now offering you the opportunity to earn up to 150,000 bonus points. 

How can you earn all these points? And is there a catch?

The HUGE Bonus Offer

For new cardmembers, you will earn 5 points per $1 spent on ALL spending, up to your first $30,000 of spending.

For big spenders, this can be a bonanza. A bonanza worth up to 150,000 points. (The equivalent of 5 nights at a Category 6 hotel ... which will also enable you to get one additional free night ... so 6 nights in total.)

For us regular folks, we may want to stick with the regular welcome offer of 80,000 points​after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months.

Update (March 13, 2017):

Thanks to our reader on Facebook who pointed out that you can get more points by taking advantage of the Marriott-Starwood merger not being complete yet.

For a limited time, you can combine your Starwood and Marriott points, with each SPG point being worth 3 Marriott points. For a limited time both programs still offer new card-memeber welcome offers. And those offers can be combined to one program before you redeem the points.

So, by spending $3,000 on each new card (or a total of $6,000), you will be able to accrue a minimum of 167,000 Marriott points. (This assumes you only earn 1 point for each $1 of spending, plus the two bonus offers.)

Obviously, this is a much better return on your investment.

What You Also Get

With the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card, you not only get the bonus offer, you get:

  • $0 introductory annual fee, then $85 per year
  • 1 free night stay at a Category 1 -5 hotel after each account anniversary
  • No foreign transaction fees - which comes in handy when staying abroad.

​And, of course, you get regular rewards of:

  • 5x points per $1 spent at over 5,700 participating Marriott Rewards® and SPG® hotels when you use your Marriott Rewards Premier credit card
  • 2x points per $1 spent on airline tickets purchased directly with the airline, and at car rental agencies and restaurants
  • 1x point per $1 spent on purchases everywhere else

Who Qualifies?

To qualify, you will need two things:

First, you will need excellent credit.

Second, you cannot have had this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.​ So travel card hackers may find it hard to qualify for this one.
