“You will get 15 elite night credits”

That means towards any status that I need to complete?

Jack

If I fly lots with United ( book with points), as well as stay lots with SPG/marriott. Do you think I get more value using the United 1.5 per dollar credit card, or is it better to use the SPG thru Aug?

E

Can you add which cards are not subject to Chase 5/24?

Rob

It should be noted that the Chase Marriott Premier also allows you to earn 1 elite night for every $3,000 spent. It is important because after 8/1 there will be no card you can sign up for that has that option and it could come in handy if you need fewer than 25 nights to reach platinum. For example, if you have any marriott or SPG card you will get 15 elite night credits and only need 35 more nights to reach platinum. If you don’t travel much and only stay another 15 nights in Marriott hotels either on points or cash, that leaves 20 nights more you need for platinum. With this card you would only need to spend $60,000 get those remaining 20 nights elite credit, vs. $75,000 on the Ritz card or the new SPG Luxury card with those options.

When does the annual free night expire ?

MeirS

Will card 4 and 5, CMP and CMPP both be available at the same time to apply with one pull?

Harry

In your humble opinion do you think it’s better to get the Ritz Carlton card now or wait?

appreciative

What chase marriott cards are/are not subject to 5/24? And any rumors about the new ones?

Mont

Any news of the club access for spg business card?

Md

Do you get 15 elite night credits PER CARD?
I.e.do 4 cards gwt you 60 elite night credits which will get platinum status?

Avi

Is it worth transferring your Amex points 0.5:1 to Starwood prior to August 1?

Alex

Any updates on Canadian cards?

artie

With the Hilton points devalued, I’ve been using the SPG card religiously. Yet, the 33.33% devaluation is too much for me. In August, I am gone! As sad as it may be, 2% cash back cards are starting to look attractive. The banks are trying to make $450 the standard fee.

K

Dan. I get using spg for everyday spend now until August to rack up points. I’ve never had a Marriott card bcz I’m spg person. Should I open one? Confused on that part. TIA!

Gordon

I have the Chase Marriott Premier card but I’m way over 5/24 now. Do you think I’ll still qualify for an upgrade to the Chase Marriott Premier Plus card despite the fact 5/24 applies to the new card?

J

Dan, are you sure the Chase Marriott Business card will be discontinued? On the Marriott credit card page, it says new benefits for Chase Marriott Business card will be coming in August (like the Ritz-Carlton card).

me

I’m really surprised the ~$100 Chase cards give annual free night up to 25k, while the ~$100 Amex cards give 35k. How’s this business decision reached?..

ShlockDoc

Any info on whether the Chase Marriott Premier Plus card will be considered the same family such that a SUB on Chase Marriott Premier would make one ineligible for a bonus on the Plus a la Southwest’s new rules?

Ber

I think this is important before people think about signing up now!
While existing customers with the Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card won’t be eligible to sign up for the new product as a new customer and receive the 100,000 point bonus there are going to be targeted upgrade incentives offered between 10,000 and 50,000 points (though those amounts may be adjusted).

George

If I sign up today for the Chase Marriott Premier card will I still be eligible for the signup bonus on the Chase Marriott Premier PLUS card on 5/3?

David

The next best option is the chase Freedom unlimited with the saphire reserve. But that’s a personal card, since I only use my business card (because they don’t report balances) I don’t see any good option for an everyday business card.

Jerry

if I dont have the spg consumer should I get it now?

Ed

Dan, are you sure about your comments that the existing Chase Marriott Premier personal card and the existing Chase Marriott Business card will only earn a category 1-4 annual “free night” certificate in the new Marriott program? Have you verified that? Or are you saying that because the annual certificate from those cards currently is up to category 5 (which is 25K points per night under the existing program) but 25K points per night will become category 4 under the new program. This is the first info I’ve seen that the existing Chase Marriott cards will earn only a category 1-4 certificate under the new program. If this is correct, it will make upgrading to the new Chase Marriott Premier Plus card more attractive. The Plus card will only have a $10 higher annual fee, but a category 1-5 certificate would be much more valuable than a category 1-4 certificate.

Zach

Should I sign up for the existing Marriott chase card or wait for the new Plus card? Thanks so much

yakov

Dan

I got the Ritz Carlton CC specifically to spend 75k and get Plat with Marriot +SPG. +United Gold +Delta status.

1. I see in your post, that once I spend 10k to get gold, I will get Plat anyway?
2. How will this affect the rest of my cheshbon. ( I already spent 60k, am in the home strech…)

Thanks!!

Silver

United gold or silver ?

Michael

“Not subject to 5/24” means doesn’t count as one of the 5, or that you can get it even if you’re over 5/24?

saul

will the free night expire ?

Isaac buchinger

I tried looking for info on this. How often can you get spg business and get bonus points.

Al

Presently I have Marriott Gold through the Amex Platinum, but you wrote that will be going away in August. Is the Ritz card a good way to maintain the benefits of Marriott Gold after the merger?

Kenny

It seems worth noting that the new certificates may only be good for category 3 (Marriott) and 4 (SPG) during peak times, whatever those turn out to be.

David B

If I already have one of the AMEX currewnt cards and come August I apply to the Luxury card. Will I be eligible for a sign-up bonus? (Even though we don’t know if there is even going to be any…)

Rissie Stroh

So is the chase marriot premier business card a better option then the new chase premier plus only if ur planning to keep it for one year ? It seems that u get 75k points and no annual fee versus the new chase one is rumored to be 100k bonus but $99 annual fee. Both get a feee night by new card offers night up 35k points

Mark

Dan, Will the 15 elite night credits with the new Chase Marriott card be credited in 2018 and again in 2019? I’ve read that it will only be credited starting in 2019. Which is correct!? Thanks!
