Overview

The Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business card is a good choice for a nice signup bonus, and it can be a good choice to keep year after year if you can make good use of its annual free night certificate. And, for those who chase Marriott status, the card's 15 elite nights make the card well worth keeping.

I do not recommend using the Marriott card for spend (except to earn the signup bonus) because points earned with this card are not worth as much as rewards earned with many other cards. Marriott points tend to be worth only about 3/4th of a cent each. Most people would be much better off using a 2% cash back card or any of a variety of better rewards earning cards.

Rewards

Marriott points can be redeemed for free night awards, travel packages, airline miles, or experiences. 5th Night Free Awards: When redeeming points for free nights, the 5th night within a single reservation is free. Airline miles: Points can be converted to airline miles at a rate of 3 points to 1 mile. A bonus is added on when you transfer 60,000 points at a time, such that 60,000 points transfers to 25,000 miles. Also, you'll get a 10% bonus when transferring points to United Airlines.

hello all. I currently have the Marriott rewards signature business card, that Ive had for many years now. It is my understanding that Chase/Marriott will not send a new card out and my current card automatically turns into the premier business card (in terms of features and earnings). First week of Sept I believe I get my annual free night cert, and my 15 elite night credits. I was banking on getting both, more importantly the free night, but

I want to take advantage of one of the new spg offers, either business card or luxury card before the 26th. Though I am debating if keeping this card makes sense. Can anyone suggest best strategy here and help me with these questions:

Do I need to close this card to take advantage of a new Marriott business card bonus? I think yes but want to confirm, and know if I also have to wait something like 30 days if I close this card before applying for a new one.

I am at 54 nights this year currently, which I believe puts me at platinum for next year already due to changes in the program. If not, I “will” need those 15 elite night credits to stay platinum this year without spending out of my own pocket, so I think I need to

Can I sign up for a marriott premier plus consumer card (if I am under 5/24) and have both the consumer/business card under chase AND before the 26th also get an Amex SPG business or luxury card? I currently have no amex card, but closed my only two earlier this year.

What happens with my annual free night on my current business? Am I able to book a cat1-5 property or does it go by points now (eg 35k), and does this even matter?

Really appreciate some guidance here, thanks all!

Thanks for the confirmation on business card, going to close this card soon. I am going to hold off and wait for a (hopefully) higher point bonus on the luxury card next time around. Thanks again for the heads up on the old card just giving a 25k free night vs 35k (vs 50k on the luxury card).
