Amex Marriott Business Bonus Possible For Previous Amex SPG Business Cardholders
If you’ve had your eyes on the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business card, there’s some new encouraging data points that could make more people eligible for a bonus. This is a business card that was released last year after the Marriott-SPG merger. But it was not considered a “new” product, as far signup bonuses go. This meant that people who has the SPG Business card or some Chase cards in the past, weren’t eligible.
Amex Marriott Business Card Bonus Eligibility
Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product or The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility.
Welcome offer not available to applicants who:
- have or have had the Marriott BonvoyTM Premier Business from Chase, the Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Business Credit Card from Chase, or the Marriott Bonvoy BusinessTM from Chase, or the Marriott Rewards Business Credit Card from Chase in the last 30 days
- have acquired the Marriott Bonvoy BoundlessTM from Chase, the Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Credit Card from Chase, the Marriott BonvoyTM Premier from Chase or the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card from Chase in the last 90 days, or
- received a new cardmember bonus in the last 24 months on the Marriott Bonvoy BoundlessTM from Chase, the Marriott Rewards® Premier Plus Credit Card from Chase, the Marriott BonvoyTM Premier Plus from Chase or the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card from Chase.
SPG Business Card Might Not Matter
New data points show that you might be eligible for a bonus on the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business card even if you have the SPG Business card in the past. This thread on r/churning has two data points showing that people have received the bonus. They had the SPG Business card two years and 4 years ago respectively.
This is very interesting, although probably not sure proof that you will get a bonus as these are very isolated cases.
These two data points are encouraging, so if you really want more Marriott points, you can try applying and see if you get the Amex pop-up with the new eligibility tool.
Let me know if you have tried applying, or plan to.
