Chase Marriott

Chase has sent out a new 100K offer on their Marriott Rewards® Premier credit card. Let’s take a look at this targeted offer.

The Offer

  • Receive 100,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from your account opening with your Marriott Rewards Premier credit card.
  • Receive 7,500 bonus points when you add the first authorized user and make a purchase in the first 3 months

Application page. It doesn’t now show the bonus. You need to click through email. Offer expires May 3, 2017.

Card Details

  • Earn 5 points per $1 spent at participating Marriott Rewards & SPG hotels
  • Earn 2 points per $1 on airline tickets, car rental agencies and restaurants
  • Receive a one-night stay every year at a Category 1-5 after account anniversary
  • $0 foreign transaction fees
  • $85 Annual Fee (not waived)

As always, “This bonus offer is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.”

Elite Status Benefit

With this card you receive 15 credits toward your next Elite membership level after account approval and every year after account anniversary. You also earn 1 Elite credit for every $3,000 spent on purchases.

Should You Apply?

The normal public offer for this card gives a 80,000 points bonus after you make purchases totaling $3,000 or more during the first 3 months. That means that with this offer you’re spending $2,000 more to get the extra 20,000 points. Definitely worth it if you’re targeted, since you’d be earning 10x on those $2K of extra spend.

But keep in mind that you can also earn Marriott points with an Amex SPG card that has a 35,000 bonus offer. That would convert to 105,000 Marriot points, just slightly less than the 107,500 that you would get through this offer. But most likely a bit more in total since you’d earn 1 SPG/3 Marriot points per dollar on that $5,000 spend requirement.

Conclusion

This is a good bonus, but the card also fall under the 5/24 rule. The bonus is pretty close to what you’d get with the SPG cards, so it would really depend on what extra perks you value most and whether 5/24 is an issue.

There’s a possibility that you could get the bonus if you apply with link provided above, but keep in mind that the offer is targeted and sent by email to some. I wouldn’t risk it, unless you see some positive data points.

  1. I got the email BUT Chase can go screw themselves with their unadvertised 5/24 restrictions.

    As you mentioned, there is the AMEX SPG offer instead.

    I’ve noticed many of the travel blogosphere pushing the SPG card for the past month. …must be some extra affliate bonus going on with that card. MMS makes mention of it Everyday in their newsletter.

  2. I just received my Marriott card. Is there a way to call and see if I was targeted and if I could receive this offer?

    • I generally use secure message to see if they will match. The 100K offer is public as of today so there is a good chance they will match based on my past experiences.

  3. I got the 100K offer, but it is directly from Marriott. Does that bypass 5/24? The bottom of the email also said Marriott does not share information with Chase. So I’m guessing it’s a no go for me.
