Chase Marriott Personal Premier: $200 Statement Credit + Two Free Nights (Category 1-5) + Annual Fee Waived
No direct link, see how to get this offer below (this link might work)
- Chase is offering the following offer on their Marriott Personal Premier card:
- $200 statement credit after first purchase
- Two free nights at a category 1-5 properties
- 7,500 points after adding the first authorized user and making a purchase within the first 3 months
How To Get This Offer
- Go to Marriott.com
- Search for any hotel
- Click select on any room
- On the first booking page scroll down and you should see the following ad:
- Annual fee of $85 is waived
- Card earns at the following rates:
- 5x points per $1 spent at Marriott & Ritz Carlton locations
- 2x points per $1 spent on airline tickets purchased directly with the Airline, at car rental agencies and at restaurants
- 1x points per $1 spent on all other purchases
- Anniversary bonus of a free night certificate for a category 1-5 property.
- 15 credits towards Elite membership after approval and every year after account anniversary
- 1 elite credit for every $3,000 spent
- This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months
- Chase’s 5/24 rule does apply to this card
Ok so we need to compare this to two offers:
- Historical high of 100,000 points + 7,500 + annual fee not waived
- Current bonus of 80,000 points + 7,500 + annual fee not waived
With this offer you save $85 from the annual fee and get a $200 statement credit. So it’s really $285 in cash + two free nights at a category 1-5 property vs 80,000 or 100,000 points (as both offers have the authorized user bonus). Marriott’s award chart looks like this:
So if you’re going to redeem for a category five property you’d normally pay 50,000/40,000 points anyway. In that case I would really prefer this $200 statement credit offer. If you’re going to redeem for lower tier properties (especially category 3 or under) then the free night certificates lose a lot of their value vs points.
The other thing to consider is that Marriott points also transfer to SPG at a rate of 3:1. Personally I think if you can find category 5 properties you want to stay at, then this statement credit offer is better than straight points. In saying that I don’t really value Marriott points that highly and I do love cash.
Keep in mind post people won’t be eligible due to the Chase 5/24 rule. Make sure you read these things everybody should know about Chase cards before before applying or asking questions in the comments.
