Introducing the Chase and AMEX Marriott Bonvoy Credit Cards

In case you haven’t heard, some of the Marriott and Starwood Preferred Guest credit cards have been updated and rebranded. These new (and maybe even improved, depending on your spending habits) credit cards come with several new perks while still offering some of the value that they previously held.

To complete the Marriott and Starwood Preferred Guest merger, these two hotel giants have launched these cards. Marriott had a strong partnership with Chase while Starwood had a solid deal going with American Express, which is why the two still co-exist (albeit under different names). American Express will continue to handle the Marriott premium and business cards while Chase will carry the torch for personal and no-fee Marriott cards.

Chase’s Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card

Marriott and Chase are launching the brand new Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card. The new Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card is replacing the premium Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card. Marketing details are as follows:

  • Limited Time Offer! Earn 100,000 Bonus Points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.
  • New Name. New Look. Same Great Benefits. The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card is now the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless(TM) card!
  • An additional Free Night Award (valued up to 35,000 points) every year after account anniversary.
  • Earn 6X Bonvoy points per $1 spent at over 6,700 participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels.
  • 2X Bonvoy points for every $1 spent on all other purchases.
  • Automatic Silver Elite Status each account anniversary year. Path to Gold Status when you spend $35,000 on purchases each account year.
  • 15 Elite Night Credits each calendar year.
  • Earn unlimited Marriott Bonvoy points and get Free Night Stays faster. 

Silver Elite benefits mean you can enjoy free in-room premium Wi-Fi at Marriott Bonvoy properties. You also get 10% bonus points on stays, priority late checkout, and no blackout dates on free night awards. You also have access to exclusive experiences.

Additionally, Chase is giving cardholders the opportunity to save money through Chase shopping partner discounts. Inside the Chase mobile app, you can link shopping offers to your card to help you save money. You can also lock or unlock your card from inside the app. The card itself is also contactless.

The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card also shares its name with the new Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program. The new streamlined loyalty program replaces the existing Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards, and Starwood Preferred Guest rewards programs.

Besides this exciting new card, Chase and Marriott are planning another new co-brand Marriott credit card expected later this year. If you are a Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Business Credit Card cardholder, you can continue to own this card but expect to hear more information soon.
