Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card


The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card has a fairly large signup offer of 75,000 bonus points for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months after account opening.

Those 75,000 points can be redeemed for about 1–2 cents each, for a total value of $750–$1,500. That means you’d get a return on spend of 25–50%, which is relatively high.

In addition to that, cardholders get 6X points per dollar at Marriott, SPG, and Ritz-Carlton locations. Every other purchase will earn 2X points per dollar.

There are also a number of valuable hotel perks, like a Free Night Award every year after your account anniversary. This can be redeemed for a night’s stay worth up to 35,000 points. You also get guaranteed Silver Elite Status, with a fast track to Gold by spending $35,000 in an account year.

In 2019, cardholders will begin getting 15 Elite Night Credits per year, which can be used to increase your elite member status. And there are invitations to fascinating experiences through Marriott’s Premier Experience Events.

This card has a $95 annual fee. There are no fees on foreign transactions.
