Quick Thoughts

This new Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card is due to replace the existing Marriott Rewards Premier credit card, although that card’s still available for applications (for now).

The older version of the card has a lower signup bonus (75,000 points vs 100,000 points). Having said that, it also has a slightly lower annual fee which is waived the first year ($0 then $85 vs $95).

The older version might also be better if you’re chasing status with Marriott Rewards this year. The Premier card offers 15 elite nights and 1 additional credit for each $3,000 you spend on the card. For this year only, those 15 nights also stack with the 15 nights from the Chase Marriott Rewards Business credit card, as well as the 5 elite nights from both the SPG consumer and business credit cards. See Greg’s post for more on how this works: Marriott Platinum Premier 75. Should I go for it?. The new Premier Plus card does offer a route to Gold status by spending $35,000 on the card though.

Seeing as the old Marriott Rewards Premier credit card was subject to the Chase 5/24 rule, it’s likely that this new Premier Plus credit card is as well. If you already hold the old card, Chase is offering an upgrade – we’ll have more about that later.

Chase's 5/24 Rule: With most Chase credit cards, Chase will not approve your application if you have opened 5 or more cards with any bank in the past 24 months.

To determine your 5/24 status, see: 3 Easy Ways to Count Your 5/24 Status. An even easier option is to track all of your cards for free with Travel Freely.

The Frequent Miler Reasonable Redemption Value for Marriott Rewards points is 0.72cpp (cents per point). Using that valuation, this signup bonus is worth $720 although it’s definitely possible to get more value than that. One option is to transfer those points to SPG which you can then transfer to airline partners. In increments of 20,000, you’ll also get a bonus 5,000 miles when transferring to airline partners.

You can also get significantly more value than that on Marriott stays, especially when using the 5th night free benefit on award stays. We recently got 2.31cpp of value at the Residence Inn Huntsville which is more than 3x the Reasonable Redemption Value.

How long do you think the old card will be around? I could use the nights credit to make Platinum one last time this year.

Recent posts on this blog encouraged readers to sign up for the Marriott Rewards Premier card quickly, before it disappeared. It would have been nice if those posts had also said that the new card would exclude existing Premier cardholders/recent bonus recipients.

Turns out that there was actually no rush at all. In fact, I would have been better off waiting for the 100k bonus card instead of applying for the 75k bonus card, effectively blocking me from receiving the higher bonus.

It looks like the old card is no longer available. We encouraged people to sign up for the old card for the purpose of seeking elite status since the old card offers 15 nights elite credit this year whereas the new card doesn’t offer that until next year.

@Stephen So I got a 20k to upgrade offer, but I’d rather stack the 15 nights when my AF comes up in Aug/Sept. Is it your understanding that they’ll still stack the rest of 2018?

That’s my expectation, but we can’t promise that things won’t change as of August. Still, I’d recommend waiting

So I notice that the trip change/cancellation protection is no longer part of the new card. Is this correct?

I just canceled my Marriott Premier card which I have held for years to upgrade to the new one and get the 100k signup bonus. They said I had to wait three to six months to apply for the new one to allow the old card to be removed from my credit report. Is this true? Any intel on this? I went ahead and applied anyway.
