Chase Marriott Rewards Premier

Chase Marriott Rewards® Premier
This card is no longer available for new applications

No Annual Fee First Year, Then $85

Card Type: Visa Signature


Earning rate: ⚬ 2X airline, car rental, & restaurants ⚬ 5X Marriott.

Big spend bonus: 1 credit towards elite status for every $3,000 in purchases

Noteworthy perks: ⚬ 15 night credit towards elite status every year upon account anniversary ⚬ Free category 1-5 certificate each year upon renewal


The Marriott Rewards Premier card is a good choice for a nice signup bonus, and it can be a good choice to keep year after year if you can make good use of its annual free night certificate. And, for those who chase Marriott status, the card's 15 elite nights make the card well worth keeping.

I do not recommend using the Marriott card for spend (except to earn the signup bonus) because points earned with this card are not worth as much as rewards earned with many other cards. Marriott Rewards points tend to be worth only about 3/4th of a cent each. Most people would be much better off using a 2% cash back card or any of a variety of better rewards earning cards.

Application Tips

Chase Application Tips

  • Shut-Down Caution: Signing up for new Chase cards can lead to Chase reviewing your accounts. This may lead to Chase shutting down all of your accounts if you appear to be a credit risk. See this post for details and recommendations: Why Chase shutdowns have increased and how to avoid them.
  • 5/24 Rule: With most Chase cards, you won't get approved if your credit report shows 5 or more cards opened in the past 24 months. Details here.
  • 24/48 Month Rule: With most Chase cards, you can get the same card and bonus again 24 months after having received the bonus as long as you no longer have the card open. With Sapphire cards, you must wait 48 months. No wait is required for Chase Ink cards.
  • 30 Day Rule: It is tough to get approved for more than 2 Chase cards within 30 days
  • Get Same Card Again: You can get the same exact card and again if you first cancel the older card and follow the 24/48 month rule. Ink cards are OK to get again without cancelling previous card if you apply with a new business.
  • Better Offers: You may be able to get a better offer than the best available public offer. Details here.
  • Hard inquiries combine into 1 when approved same day (not always true when mixing business and personal)
