Earn 100,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points when you apply for the card and spend $5,000 on it within three months of approval. Plus, each dollar spent on everyday purchase rewards you 2X per dollar spent (and 6X at participating Marriott properties) on eligible purchases.
So if you meet the minimum spend requirement, you’ll ultimately bank at least 110,000 points.
Cardholders receive several benefits such as:
- Free award night (beginning your second year of holding the card), valid for one night at a property with a redemption level up to 35,000 points
- Complimentary Silver Elite status, so you can enjoy
- 10% bonus points earnings on hotel room rates, incidentals, and more
- Late checkout (when available)
- Free Wi-Fi (when you book through any Marriott website or app)
- 15 elite night credits each year, so you can achieve higher status levels more quickly
- No foreign transaction fees
The card carries a $95 annual fee. Terms apply.
If Marriott is your chain — especially after it took over Starwood/SPG — and you can spend $5,000 in three months, this is a decent offer to consider. (One can have some fun with 110,000 Bonvoy points.)
My Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card spending is generally limited to stays at Marriott properties. I get much better everyday spending returns on my Chase Sapphire Reserve and American Express Gold Card (learn more and compare to other cards).
If you have Marriott status, the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card‘s complimentary Silver Elite is certainly a nice touch. But keep in mind two premium American Express cards — The Platinum Card from American Express (learn how to apply) and The Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN (learn how to apply) come with much better benefits give and cardholders complimentary Gold Elite status with Marriott and Hilton. (And airline incidental credit. And airport lounge access. And…)
The $95 annual fee essentially buys you a “free” night at select Marriott properties. Provided you find a Marriott family hotel costing $96 or more, you come out ahead when it comes to that benefit.
