Five Marriott 50K free night certificates available again


Several months ago, we saw an offer to earn five Marriott free night certificates each valid for a night costing up to 50,000 points (though you could also top off with up to 15,000 additional points per night) after $5,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. That deal is back again and can be highly valuable if you can maximize the use of the certificates.

Quick Thoughts

The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card can easily be well worth the cost of its annual fee given the annual 35K free night certificate, which can be topped off with up to an additional 15,000 points. With increasing hotel prices, I have had a number of situations where a 35K certificate has gotten me a room selling for $300-$400 per night and even a bit more.

This offer, which we’ve seen a few times over the past couple of years (including earlier this year), can be highly valuable given the fact that it comes with free night certificates that are each worth up to 50,000 points (and you can top them off with up to 15,000 additional points per night). At that level, it is very easy to find hotels that are otherwise charging more than $300 per night (and quite a bit more in some cases). That means you could get incredible value out of this welcome offer.

However, there are some factors that might dissuade some. For starters, the free night certificates are valid for a year from the date they are issued. If you can’t use them within that time, you’ll be stuck calling Marriott to ask for a one-year extension, which sometimes requires multiple phone calls to find an agent willing to help (though I believe most are successful eventually in getting one extension). Still, I would only apply if I had intentions to use the certificates within the next year.

Obviously certificates are less flexible than points since you can’t split up a single certificate to book multiple nights, but even still this offer is pretty strong. Even if you only managed to use the certificates for nights that would otherwise cost a bit less than 50K, it should be easy to get well over $1,000 in value out of the welcome offer.

Keep in mind the complex Marriott credit card eligibility matrix to be sure that you are eligible for a Marriott credit card. See our Marriott Bonvoy Complete Guide for more detail.

Hi! I just reviewed the eligibility guidelines and I I just want to confirm this is true: If I have the AMEX Bonvoy Business, (for five years), I still will not be approved for the Chase Boundless personal card?


Not correct. You would only be ineligible for the welcome bonus if approved within past 90 days or received welcome bonus within past 24 months.

Wendy Morone

Thank you!


I currently have the bonvoy boundless chase card, and the amex bonvoy. If I wanted in on this deal, am I correct in understanding I’d need to cancel both cards, and wait 30 days to apply for the boundless again? Thoughts on doing this? I haven’t gotten a welcome bonus on either in the last 24 months.

[…] Chase Marriott (5) 50,000 point free night offer is back […]


Do you know what the minimum credit limit is for this card? Chase will not extend my credit but will allow me to move credit around

Greg The Frequent Miler

$5K. If you search the “Pricing and Terms” you’ll find:

If approved for an account, your credit access line will be at least $5000.


Thank you


Is this a targeted or public offer? Chase website shows only 3 night certificates as signup bonus.

Hasn’t this been out for awhile? Anybody who recently got 3 nights succeed with a match? I tried and failed a few weeks ago.


Has anyone gotten these certs extended recently? I tried last month and was shot down


I was able to get 2 certs extended for an additional year. Had to call twice as first agent said no. Second agent said no problem.

09/12 attempted with the Web chat person and was denied. Called in to the one 800 number and had to be transferred once but that person approved my extension. They said did you have something like a medical condition in this year? I said yes I did have one. that was it extended a year from the day I called in


Thanks Nick! Question (or rambling thought…you decide!):
Can (and should?) these certs be used on Marriott Homes & Villas bookings? If so and if that’s a good idea…I might go for this and see if I can use these for a family of 5 to stay around Rome / Naples / Amalfi Coast before/after some free cruises next May/June…! And I don’t have the Ritz card…so this would start my path to getting that one in a year too…but this would also put me at 4/24 until next June, and I do want to stay under 5/24, so the pressure is on if this is going to be my only new consumer card in the next 10 months or so… should I do it??? 😉


Ah gotcha thanks. Good to know! So I’ll probably keep holding out for a more worthy candidate for that 4/24 final slot 🙂

Question on expiration of certificates.

We got approved on August 20th. 90 days would be November 18th. Our statement end date is November 16th. If we made the final spend on November 17th, we wouldn’t get the certificates until the statement closes on December 16th right? And then they wouldn’t expire until at least 12/16/24, is that right?

Kody Thomas



Disagree with above (if the dates are critical for you). The certs can be issued as soon as a week or so following spend completion (even before your next statement closes).

Kody Thomas

Thanks for heads up! I would prefer they be into December but I’ll make due if earlier.

I haven’t cut spending that close before. As long as I make the transaction by the 90th day, it should be fine right? I.e. goes by transaction date, not day it posts?


Personally wouldn’t wait until the very last day, but, yes, *should* be fine in that case.
