Marriott and Chase have just rolled out some fantastic limited time offers on two of their co-branded credit cards (the end dates for these bonuses hasn’t been published). Let’s take a look at the details of these excellent offers:

Why the Boundless Card is the better option

If you’re trying to decide between these two cards, I’d personally recommend applying for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card. While the card has a $95 annual fee, it offers:

  • A welcome bonus that’s 50,000 points better
  • A free night award on your account anniversary every year, which should easily cover the annual fee

Even if you’re not sure you want to pay the $95 annual fee long term, you can always get the Boundless Card now, and if you don’t like it you can downgrade it to the no annual fee card after a year. You’ll earn a bonus that’s 50,000 points better, and that’s most definitely worth the $95 annual fee.

Bottom line

Two co-branded Marriott and Chase credit cards are offering limited time welcome bonuses. Whether you’re considering the no annual fee Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card or the $95 annual fee Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card, these are definitely worth considering.

Personally I think the Boundless Card is the better of the two options, given the bigger bonus, and also the annual free night certificate, which more than justifies the annual fee, in my opinion.

Comments
  1. I upgraded my boundless card last year to the Ritz Carlton Card and haven’t had the welcome bonus for the boundless unless you count upgrading the previous Marriott card to boundless. I also have the Amex Bonvoy Brilliant (Trying to remember these names are annoying).

    Am I still eligible for the welcome bonus?

    Wasn’t there a chart somewhere that listed if people are eligible for the welcome bonus depending on which Marriott card you own or does that not apply anymore?

  2. @Lucky – If I already have the Bonvoy Brilliant, will I still get an additional 15 elite nights a year and an extra free night?

  3. @Biz Guy You would get the 2nd free night annually, but to my understanding only those with a business and personal card receive the 30 elite nights. Also, check your eligibility for the bonus, as Brilliant cardholders who have received a sign up bonus in the last 24 months won’t be eligible for another bonus.

  4. Hmm, Chase’s refer a friend program gives you 3 free nights offer (up to $35K night award) instead. Points give more flexibility while the free nights could potentially have a slightly better points outcome (plus gives the referrer 20K points).

  5. I know this is a bit of a political hot button, so I’ll simply post a fact.

    The Federal agents who are in Portland temporarily against the mayor’s request are staying at the downtown Marriott.

  6. $95 and a free night certificate each year. Most people who have the card travel to some extent and will stay in a hotel room worth more than $95.

  7. Warning: although Chase does not say this on their website or the application page, you will not get a sign-up bonus offer if you received one on the Chase Ritz-Carlton card within 24 months. I am a victim of this.
