Overview

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.
