The Marriott Rewards Premier credit card has a new public offer offer where you can earn 100,000 Bonus Points after spending $5,000 within 3 months. This is the same offer that was sent to some people a few days ago, but it doesn’t have an expiration date.
You’ll also 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.
This offer gives you 20,000 more points than the usual public offer, while also requiring more spending. Keep in mind that the card falls under the 5/24 rule, so if you’ve had more than five new credit cards in the last 2 years, you should probably take a look at the business version of the card. It currently has an 80K offer.
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.
Ask to Be Matched If You Applied For a Worse Offer
Chase is good at matching higher bonuses, if you’ve applied for a Chase card within the last 90 days, especially if it is a public bonus. Just send Chase a secured message through your account and you’ll be required to complete the $2,000 of extra spend in order to get the difference of 20,000 Marriott points.
