The Marriott Rewards Premier credit card has a new targeted offer where you can earn 100,000 Bonus Points after spending $5,000 within 3 months. You’ll receive an extra 7,500 bonus points for adding an authorized user and making a purchase. Annual fee of $85 is not waived the first year. Also keep in mind that the offer card falls under the 5/24 rule.
The offer was sent to some people by email, and it gives you 20,000 more points than the usual public offer, while also requiring more spending.
Is this better than 80K Bonus?
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.
If you’re looking to boost your Marriott balance, you can also take a look at the 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 a bit more in total since you’d earn 1 SPG/3 Marriot points per dollar on that $5,000 spend requirement.
