Quick Thoughts

While this new offer isn’t as strong as some we have seen on the consumer Marriott cards, it is about as good as it typically gets on the Amex Marriott business card. The business card is appealing because since it comes with 15 elite night credits each year and those can stack with elite nights from having one (or more) Marriott consumer cards. For instance, I have both the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business card and the Chase Ritz-Carlton consumer card, so I began the year with 30 elite night credits — just 20 nights short of Marriott Platinum status (otherwise known as “free breakfast” status…albeit a confusing benefit).

The key reason to think twice about this offer is because this is the year when Marriott is expected to take the gloves off and go fully dynamic with award pricing. We don’t yet know exactly how that will play out, but with the elimination of award charts and no promises about award pricing moving forward, it is a questionable time to get invested in more Marriott points. In past years, we have seen program changes happen in March — and we recently found out that Points Advance is ending on March 28th, so there is reason to believe that the Marriott horizon may soon change.

That said, I think it is save to assume that this bonus will still be worth quite a bit, and 125K is more than it was worth yesterday, so if you had it on your mind already then this could be the offer you were waiting for. On the other hand, if you’re not in a hurry for the elite nights, it might make more sense to wait it out and see.

I had chase boundless and got a SUB. If i apply for business card should i setup a new Marriot account to be safe and then merge them later?


Is it still the case I can’t get this if I got the chase personal card in the last 2 yrs?


Yes. I waited 25 months to be sure for both myself & P2 apps and no issues with approval.
