For those who still have what was the old Marriott Rewards Premier credit card (now the Marriott Bonvoy Premier, no longer available for new applicants), Chase is out with a couple of new upgrade offers: some have received an offer good for two free nights (worth up to 35K points each) for upgrading to the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card and spending $3,000 by 9/30/19 while others are reporting an offer for one free night (worth up to 35K points) after upgrading and making a single purchase. The two-free-night offer would probably get me to upgrade if I had this offer available, though beauty is in the eye of the beholder on this.

 

The Deal

  • There are a couple of new upgrade offers out to upgrade from the old Marriott Rewards Premier card to the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card (the card that replaced the Premier Plus). The two offers I’ve seen reported are:
    • Upgrade and spend $3,000 by 9/30/19 and get 2 free nights worth up to 35K points each [Targeted, YMMV]
    • Upgrade and make a single purchase and get 1 free night worth up to 35K points [Targeted, YMMV]
  • Direct link to check your offer (you may have one of the above or no special offer)

Key Details

  • Upgrading will increase your annual fee from $85 to $95 and reset your anniversary date for your next certificate

Quick Thoughts

We’ve previously seen upgrades for points (as many as 60K) or elite night credits (15 extra elite night credits). Personally, I’d gladly take the two free night certificates on this one. While I almost always prefer the flexibility of points, the 35K certs have come in pretty handy this year. I’m finding it’s not hard to get very good value out of them and there are plenty of instances where I’d rather stay in a 35K property than a 25K property.

Others may hold out hope for another points offer to come in the future as an offer for 50-60K points could mean a lot more nights in a lower-category hotel (50K is enough for 5 free nights at a Category 2 property since you get the 5th night free on an award stay; 60K could get you 10 free nights at Category 1). Those could also add up to good value — it all depends on your stay patterns.

It only takes a few seconds to check for an offer, so it’s probably worth a look if you’ve still got the old card.
