Last month, I wrote about how the terms had changed on many Chase cards to allow customers to earn the bonuses again as long as it had been 24 months since the last time they received the bonus.
One of the cards I had listed was for a more inferior Marriott link of 40,000 points and a $150 statement credit. With an existing 70K offer, 40K does not really cause a lot of excitement. However, the existing 70,000 point offer had the language in the terms that excluded applicants from receiving the bonus if they had already received it.
Application Link – Chase Marriott Card 70,000 Points After $2,000 Spend (I do not receive a commission for this link)
Today, I received a limited-time offer that is also for 70,000 points but you need to spend $2,000 in 3 months instead of the $1,000 the other 70K offer requires. Not that big of a deal, really, when you consider that you can actually get this offer, as long as it has been 24 months since you last received it. This is the Marriott Rewards Premier Chase card.
Here is the exact language from the application:
This bonus offer is available to you as long as you have not received a new cardmember bonus for this product in the past 24 months.
This is great news as 70,000 Marriott points is a really nice score! Here is what you get with this offer:
- 70,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first 90 days
- 1 FREE night Category 1 – 4 after account approval
- 1 FREE night Category 1 – 5 every year after your account anniversary
- 15 credits towards your Elite membership annually after your account anniversary (free Silver status)
- 1 additional elite credit for every $3,000 spent
- Annual fee ($85) waived the first year
Do not be confused – there are two Marriott cards that offer 70,000 points. Only one of them (this one) allows previous cardmembers to apply and receive the bonus again. The other offer is only for new cardmembers. You can tell the difference by the spend requirement – this offer requires $2,000 in 3 months and the other offer requires $1,000 in 3 months.
