Chase Marriott Premier Plus Upgrade Offers (Zero-50,000 Points) – [Higher Offers Showing]
Update 10/09/18: Readers are reporting seeing offers higher than they received before. For example one reader was previously offered 0 points and is now being offered 50,000 points to upgrade. Might be worth another look.
Update: The upgrade website will be down until July 9th for some unknown reason. You can still upgrade by calling Chase directly (use number on the back of your card and they will direct you through).
If you’re a Chase Marriott Premier cardholder you can now get an offer to upgrade to the new Premier Plus card. The annual fee is $10 higher at $95 instead of $85 and the card earns at a high rate as well, the following graphic does a good job explaining the differences. It’s important to note that the Premier Plus card will no longer offer trip cancellation or trip interruption insurance.
People are being offered anywhere from 0 to 50,000 points after a single purchase by 12/31/18. Because this is a product change and not a new account opening, you should keep your account history and credit age (this also means upgrading will have no affect on your 5/24 status). You can check your own upgrade offer here.
One thing that isn’t entirely clear is what happens the 15 elite night credits for existing Premier cardholders that upgrade to the Premier Plus. The Premier Plus won’t offer those elite night credits until 2019, so I guess people that upgrade will lose those but it’s not 100% clear. You can read a more dedicated post on whether upgrading is a good or bad idea here.
