If you previously received a poor upgrade offer from the Marriott Rewards Premier to the Premier Plus card, you may be able to match to the new 50K offer even if you previously accepted a lesser offer. When the Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card launched earlier this year, Chase provided varying upgrade offers between 10K-50K for those who held the no-longer-available-for-new-applicants Marriott Rewards Premier card. Now, most people qualify for a 50K offer and many have had success in matching to that offer from previously-accepted lower offers.

- Many users who previously accepted a lesser offer have successfully matched to the 50K offer by sending a secure message to Chase
If you haven’t yet upgraded, you can easily check your current upgrade offer at the link under The Deal above. Most people are now seeing a 50K upgrade offer (even if they previously saw a lower offer).
A key uncovered by reddit and reported by Doctor of Credit today is that even those who upgraded months ago are successfully getting matched to the 50K offer via secure message (at least one reddit user reports upgrading in June for 10K points and getting matched to 50K now). There’s no guarantee that you’ll get matched, but there have been many reports of success. That might not last forever, so if you’ve previously accepted a lesser upgrade offer, I suggest sending a secure message right now asking to be matched to the new 50K upgrade offer.
Keep in mind that if your anniversary date has not yet passed, you’ll miss out on the chance to stack 15 elite nights for 2018 if you upgrade early. You’ll also increase your annual fee from $85 to $95, though you’ll get a potentially more useful 35K free night. You’ll lose the chance to earn an elite night for every $3K in spend, which is also a consideration if you’re on the verge of a qualification tier. But 50K points are certainly worth a decent chunk, so it may be worth the trade for some.
