For the next 20 or so hours (or less, depending on when you’re reading this), you can still earn an improved signup bonus on this card.
I first wrote about this offer several weeks ago. Here’s what I said:
Marriott isn’t my favorite hotel program (that would be Starwood and Hyatt), but this new offer is worth a look for the free nights you’ll earn right away. They used to provide 50,000 points upon signup, but for a limited time—we don’t know for how long—you can earn 20,000 additional points for a total of 70,000.
70,000 points can put you in one of their nicer hotels or resorts worldwide for up to two nights. Marriott also partners with Ritz Carlton, where awards can also be booked.
In addition to the improved signup bonus, the card also features:
- An additional 1 free night stay after account approval in Category 1-4 locations
- An additional 1 free night stay at a Category 1-5 location every year after your account anniversary date
- No annual fee for the first year, then $85 for year II and beyond
At some point in the very near future, the card will revert to an earlier, lesser bonus. It will still be available in some fashion, just not as enticing.
