Limited time signup bonuses:
- For a limited time only, you can get 125,000 points and a free night at Marriott hotels that cost up to 50K points each when you signup for the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Consumer Card and spend $5,000 in 3 months. That’s a potential value of 175K points!
- The free night expires in 12 months, but Marriott will typically extend free night awards by a year if you ask.
- For a limited time only, you can earn 60K Marriott bonus points for opening the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card and spending $2,000 in 3 months.
Comparison to previous signup bonus:
- The previous signup bonus on the Boundless card was 75K points for spending $3,000 in 3 months.
- The previous signup bonus on the Bold card was 30K points for spending $1,000 in 3 months.
- The Boundless card has a $95 annual fee, though the signup bonus and annual anniversary nights are worth well more than that.
- The Bold card has no annual fee.
Welcome bonus terms:
You won’t get the welcome bonus on this card if:
- You have an active Chase Marriott consumer Boundless, Bold, or Premier card.
- You got a bonus on a Chase Marriott consumer card in the past 24 months.
- You have or had an active Starwood AMEX/Marriott Bonvoy AMEX Consumer card in the past 30 days.
- You were approved for a Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant AMEX card or the Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX in the past 90 days
- You received a signup bonus for a Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant AMEX or the Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX card in the past 24 months.
All Chase cards are subject to 5/24 restrictions, meaning that you are not likely to be approved if you have been approved for 5 or more consumer credit cards in the past 24 months. Note that the Chase system automatically counts cards like authorized user cards and store cards as cards that count towards 5/24, but if you explain to Chase that those cards are merely authorized user cards or store cards they can manually approve you for a new card.
You can check your credit report for free at the federally authorized annualcreditreport.com to check how many accounts are shows as being open in the past 24 months.

My local natural gas company allows me to prepay up to $1,000 on a credit card for a $1.65 flat fee. That’s a great way to earn miles and help meet a spend threshold. My electricity supplier allows me to pay with a credit card for free as long as I am enrolled in autopay.
Airline transfer bonus:
You can transfer increments of 60K Marriott points into 25K airline miles or 27.5K miles with United.
Additionally, airlines often have their own bonuses for hotel point transfers.
Marriott has dozens of valuable airline transfer partners, such as Aegean, Alaska, American, JAL, Qantas, and dozens more!
Miles from these airlines can be very valuable and hard to get from other sources. For example JAL miles allow you to book awards on Emirates, AA, and BA with discounted or no fuel surcharges as well as mileage bargains. Alaska miles opens up bargains on airlines like Cathay Pacific and Qantas with no fuel surcharges and they allow 2 free stopovers on awards.
Premium internet access:
Boundless cardholders get free premium in-room internet at Marriott hotels.
Both cards offer Silver Elite status, which gives 10% bonus points, late checkout, and more.
If you spend $35K/year on the Boundless card you will earn Gold elite status, which gives 25% bonus points, late checkout, room upgrades, a points amenity on paid and award stays, and more.
Both cards also offer 15 elite night credits for having the card.
You can get 15 elite night credits for having a Marriott consumer card and 15 elite night credits for having a Marriott business card. You can combine those nights with promotional nights to reach higher elite tiers.
You can’t get 2 sets of 15 elite night credits if you only have consumer or only have business cards.
Officially you can’t convert until you have had your card for 12 months, but some reps will allow conversions at any time.
Boundless cardholders will receive a free night upon every card anniversary valid at hotels that cost up to 35K points. Anniversary nights can be worth several times the annual fee on this card! Anniversary nights expire 12 months after they post to your account.

This is what the current Marriott award chart looks like.
