  • New Chase/American Express SPG/Marriott Rules Are Now In Place
  • Lifetime language doesn’t apply to this card

Our Verdict

Best bonus on this card has been 100,000 points (or 105,000 points when it was the SPG card – although that was really 35,000 SPG points that would now be worth 105k points). This comes with the extra $100 statement credit. The really nice thing about this offer is that there is no lifetime language, meaning you can get this bonus even if you’ve had this card before. I believe that the Chase/American Express Marriott rules still apply to this no lifetime language offers, but I don’t know that for sure. This is definitely worth doing/considering if you’ve already had the card and even worth considering if you haven’t. I would add this to the best credit card bonuses, but it’s not a public bonus so I won’t. As always if you have any questions about American Express cards I’d recommend reading this post first.

Where does American Express state their rules about ineligibility if you have the Chase Marriott Business card? It has been just over 2 years since I got the Chase card and wondering if I should try this one.

It doesn’t in this offer show but Will thinks it may still apply. And the 24months you are thinking about counts from when you received the bonus not when you got your current card.

Interestingly P3 targeted for this. He has no business cards anywhere so not clear why they are targeting him for a biz card. Magically he now has a business though.

I previously had the card but cancelled it before putting spend on it.

Tried to apply last week but got the pop up about bonus inegibility.

Got targeted this morning and got approved with the bonus.

Nice!

I’m not sure if this just changed, but I got the email for this offer, and I just checked and it has the lifetime language.

It didn’t change for until a week or two ago when the Apply no longer worked and went to page stating offer no longer available.

Even though the offer terms and conditions don’t mention the Chase eligibility restrictions, I still got a pop-up notifying me I would NOT be eligible for the bonus due to having a Chase Marriott business card. Decided not to apply.

When did you get the pop-up, at which stage? After submitting the application or after filling out the application but not submitting it?

Does the link still work for anyone?
