Marriott’s co-brand portfolio includes cards issued by both American Express and Chase. I’ve written before about how Marriott’s Amex cards are offering limited time bonuses, and now Marriott’s Chase cards are also offering excellent new limited time bonuses.

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless increased bonus

For a limited time, the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card is offering an improved welcome bonus of 100,000 Bonvoy bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months. Personally I value Bonvoy points at ~0.7 cents each, so to me the bonus is worth $700.

There are a variety of reasons to get this $95 annual fee card, which is the mid-range personal Marriott card. I’d say the annual fee is easy to justify based on the following three benefits alone:

  • An annual free night certificate worth up to 35,000 Bonvoy points
  • 15 elite nights towards Bonvoy status annually
  • Complimentary Silver status

The annual free night certificate can easily be used as many hotels that cost way more than $95 per night, so for most people that alone will more than make this card worth keeping.

The ability to earn Marriott elite nights with credit cards makes it significantly easier to earn Bonvoy Platinum status — if you get a personal and business Marriott Bonvoy credit card, you could earn up to 30 elite nights towards status every year, which is huge.

Marriott Bonvoy Bold increased bonus

For a limited time, the Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card is offering an improved welcome bonus of 50,000 Bonvoy bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases within the first three months. Based on my valuation of Bonvoy points, the bonus is worth $350.

What makes this card unique is that it has no annual fee, so it’s the only co-branded Marriott card where that’s the case. There’s one main reason I’d consider getting this card — you get 15 elite nights towards status annually just for having the card, despite the lack of an annual fee. That’s a good option if you’re looking for the lowest cost card that comes with this perk.

Bottom line

For a limited time all four co-branded Marriott credit cards are offering increased bonuses. The two American Express cards already had increased bonuses, and now the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card and Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card are also offering increased welcome bonuses.

If you don’t have any of these cards, I’d highly recommend picking one or more up (just make sure you look at the eligibility requirements during the application process). Personally I have two Marriott credit cards, and have gotten outsized value with them year-after-year. The cards make it easier for me to earn Marriott Bonvoy status, which is awesome, and annual free night certificates are also valuable.

Do you plan on picking up a Marriott card with an increased bonus?

  1. Applied for the Bold card using the referral link here. It makes sense to get 15 nights each year towards elite status without paying annual fee. $1,000 spending to get 50k points also seem easy to achieve.
    Haven’t had the best experience with Chase. I tried getting the Reserve as my first credit card twice, and was rejected both times, with one of the reasons for the second time being “unsatisfactory relationship with bank.” Then finally got approved for the World of Hyatt card from Chase one year later, but they cancelled the card within a week of approving it… that was almost 2 years ago. Let’s see if they approve me this time.

  2. The room in the hero frame, though. From the poor lighting, to the cheapskate TV, to the absence of design and thought.

    It’s just so Marriott.

  3. To add to what Andrew said, in the photo with the turquoise sofa and chair, and cushions… the style would have been so tres chic in like 1970, lol.

    To each [hotel chain] their own, I guess.

    I did some searching online, seems like you can get 15 nights from having a personal card (could be either of the Chase cards or Brilliant card from Amex) and 15 nights from having a business card. Multiple personal cards don’t seem to get you over 15 nights a year apparently.

  5. Totally Bonvoy’ed – horrible program operated at the whims of their parsimonious hotel owners. “Sorry we can’t serve breakfast since its still the pandemic, you can’t even get it to go because we are still gonna be cheap.” These crazies are making poor Arne Sorensen, who tragically left us so early, rolling in his grave.

  6. I have a travel package expiring this summer. Question: do I have to checkin and complete ALL nights before expiry? Or could I checkin a few nights before expiry and continue to use the other nights post expiry? Thank you.
