With the release of the Marriott Bonvoy branding, there was a need to create new credit cards from both Chase and American Express and combine the products into one. Cards from both Chase and American Express are offering more than 100,000 points on certain cards!
Quick Recap of The Bounldess card.
The Boundless card is Chase’s Marriott card. It comes with a $95 annual fee. For the $95, you get a free night at a Marriott hotel that costs up to 35,000 points per night. Additionally, you will earn 6x back at Marriott hotels and 2x everywhere else. Finally, holding the card will give you automatic silver status with Marriott with a pathway to Gold by spending $35,000 in a single year.
The Bonvoy Boundless card from Chase, is one of those cards that has a 100,000 point sign up bonus. Typically, the sign up bonus would be 75,000, so there’s a pretty good opportunity here. In order to secure the 100,000 Marriott points, you will need to spend a total of $5,000 in the first 3 months of account opening.
Of course, with the combination of the two programs, there are some rules that dictate whether or not your are eligible for the sign up bonus. While the rules themselves are pretty convoluted, the best way to describe it is if you have previously held the American Express equivalent of this card, and have received the sign up bonus within the last two years. If you have, then it may not even be possible to get the sign up bonus. If you are in the clear though, the 100,000 points can be yours!
This 100,000 point offer is the highest offer currently available on the entire range of Marriott credit cards. Even the $450 annual fee card from American Express has the same sign up bonus. While the bonus has been available for a few months now, it may not be as common of an occurrence as we would hope for. If you’re interested in the Marriott card, this may be the way to go. You can still get the big sign up bonus, but you don’t have to have the upfront capital to pay the $450 annual fee on the Bonvoy Brilliant.
