    • 15 elite night credits towards status each year

Our Verdict

We’ve seen bonuses of 100,000 on the Marriott Premier Plus card before, I suspect this will be a somewhat common increased bonus that they offer on this newly rebranded Bonvoy boundless card. If you have a short/medium term need for points then this card might make sense to sign up for, but I’d expect the bonus to only increase in the longer term.

Most people won’t even be eligible for this card in the first place due to all the restrictions and the fact that the 5/24 rule applies to this card. If you are eligible you’ll also need to consider if you should go for this bonus, or save the 5/24 slot for another Chase card. Again that will depend on your travel plans/goals. Before applying for this card, read these things everybody should know about Chase. I personally don’t value Marriott points highly and don’t think this is a particularly amazing bonus, so I won’t be adding it to the best credit card bonus page.

I’ll wait for First year fee to be waived.

Based on my recent experience staying in a Fairfield hotel, completely free is already a little more than I’d like to pay.

Looks like this old offer ($200 statement credit after first purchase / 2 35k certs after $3k spend / waived first year AF) is active.

If you go by TPG valuations, it’d be worth about 35000 + 35000 + 32750 ($295 at 0.009 per point), so roughly the same value but for $2k less spend.

I’d personally rather have points than FN certs though. Much more flexible. All that said, I don’t think this is worth a 5/24 slot, and one would be better off going after the Amex portfolio.

Is the Bonvoy Boundless a metal card like the old Marriott Rewards card?

No.

It’s Plastic with orange trim. Like the Freedom card designs.

I have a Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card and I can still generate referral links for it, which offer 3 award nights (35K each = 105K points) after $3,000 in spend. If a person applies using that link, will he or she actually get the same Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card, or will it be Marriott Bonvoy Boundless with a slightly different sign up bonus?

Pure points will trump 35k certificates all day, especially with peak pricing going in.

Anastasia

Certificates are good if the person already has something in mind for 3 nights @ 35K points, and it’s not during holidays or very popular weekends. The good thing about that offer is that the minimum spend is $2000 less than with a Bonvoy Boundless, and the referral will get me 20K points too. Thanks for the input but that’s not exactly what I was asking about.

Drivesabrowntruck is absolutely right. You can justify whatever you want to yourself but anyone signing up is better off with 100k points versus 3 35k certs.

Anastasia
Anastasia

I would agree with you if it was just about 3 nights. But I’m talking about:
1) 3X35K nights
2) 20K points from referral
3) $2000 less for minimum spend
4) someone who already has a property and a non-peak time in mind.

Just to add to this post, the offer expires 5/2. Check Marriott’s website page for their credit cards.

I’m finally 4/24 now.
Which Chase Card should I sign up for ?
I’m considering Chase Ink Preferred as I already have CSR.

Also, does the double application technique still works on CSP/CSR as I am considering applying for my SO?
Thanks

Raylan

CIP is a good choice. Double dip still works, just apply for the second card the next day after approval of the first card (within 24 hrs).

Rhea

Can u elaborate on the double dip method please?

Adam Crane

The CIP has a great sign up bonus. For me though I chose the CIC as it has better bonus points that I could use. The 5x on cell phone, and internet generate me almost 2k/month alone in points. Then there’s 5x on office supply stores were you can buy gift cards to most stores, where you’d normally have to use a Freedom Unlimited or non bonus category.

Do you own an actual business with those expenses? I want the CIP but I’m worried about getting shut down. I’m a landscape photographer for fun and sell some photos to friends, not a lot by any means and have always wondered if that would qualify. I want that card so bad. Lol I pay like $800 a month on cell phones and internet because my parents and brothers family are all on my plan and they pay me monthly. Just makes me nervous to try.

You’re certainly eligible for a CIP. Register with your SSN and your First and Last name as the business name, sole prop.

Think I might finally pull the trigger.

How long does it take Chase and Marriott to add the bonus points into the account once the spend requirement has been satisfied? I want to use the points for a Points Advance reservation already made.

Adam Crane

I hit my spend this month, and i’m assuming I’ll get my points at statement close. You can book the stay without the points. On their site you can book with the expectation of future points. You’ll just need to have the points in the account within 14 days of the stay or they’ll cancel the stay. That is what I did.

Was approved for Marriott Premier Plus on 12/30/18 for 75k after 3k spend. MSR met in January with points received on 2/6/19.

On 3/4/19 I SM’d Chase to match the 100k after 5k offer, which they were able to honor.

After holding the Chase Bonvoy Bondless card for some time, can I product change this card to Chase Ritz Card, which is discontinued now? Thanks.

Adam Crane
Adam Crane

to my knowledge they are no longer issuing the cards, so they won’t allow a product change.

Hari

Am I eligible to apply for this card if I currently hold the Ritz card?

Just saw an offer come up when playing around with a booking on the marriott site- 1st year fee waived, $200 statement credit, and 2 free nights up to 35K points… https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/marriottboundless/respath?CELL=67RV

William Charles this should be categorized as credit cards right? Currently it’s uncategorized.

Marriott has refused to honor the 100,000 point Bonvoy Boundless offer, even though we enrolled within the proper time frame and met all the conditions for eligibility. I conclude the offer was never made in good faith

if you had 5 slots, what 5 chase cards would you pick?

Lrdx
Lrdx

CIP, CIC, CIU, CSP or CSR, CFU, CF, and 2 out of (Hyatt, IHG, Marriott).
Jup, that’s 5 🙂

Wonder how high these minimum spends will keep going? Now it’s at $5,000 over 3 months for a card that a few years ago might have been at $3,000/ 3 months or even less?

That would be a good article to write…

$5k/100k and $3k/75k are the typical SUBs for this card… been that way for at least a couple years.

On 8/29 I applied and was approved for CSP, which makes me 4/24. Now I want to get this Marriott Bonvoy Boundless and Chase freedom. Any ideas how to avoid 5/24? Thanks in advance for your help!

You can’t. Only way is to wait until you are at 4 or less cards.

I was considering one of the Marriott cards for the 15 elite nights towards status per year for lifetime status, since I’ve already had Gold status via Amex Plat for a few years – should I wait for next year for a better bonus?
