New Marriott Card for Businesses
May
13

Chase and Marriott Rewards have introduced the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Business Credit Card, offering one free night and 50,000 bonus points for signing up. The card also offers Silver Elite status.

After spending $1,000 within the first three months members receive 50,000 Marriott Rewards bonus points, worth six free nights at a Category 1 hotel. Balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, and money orders do not count toward the minimum spend.

On approval applicants receive a certificate for one free night at a category 1 to 4 hotel for use within six months. It is not transferable. Every year members receive a free night certificate for as long as their card is active.

Accelerated points

Business travelers earn 5 points per dollar on stays when they are booked at any of the 3,800 Marriott hotels. Flights earn 2 points per dollar when they are booked through the airline. Hotels and tickets booked though third party venders, like Orbitz or Hotel.com are not eligible to earn points.

The same earning rate applies when making purchases at restaurants, car rental companies, cell phone carriers, office supply stores, cable, telephone and internet providers. All other purchases earn 1 point on the dollar. Points can be redeemed for merchandise and travel rewards, as well as hotel stays.

Travel insurance benefits are part of this package including: trip delay, lost/delayed baggage, trip cancellation and an auto collision damage waiver. Purchase security and extended warranty are also included.

Employee credit cards are free, and the card’s $99 annual fee is waived the first year. There are no foreign transaction fees, and to add another layer of security onto the card they have an EMV chip.

Upping your status

Once approved cardholders receive Silver Elite status, which includes 20% back in bonus points, late checkout, 10% off in the gift shop, 10% weekend discount, and free internet in hotels located in the Asia Pacific.

On their anniversary cardholders receive 15 elite credits, and for every $3,000 they spend they get an additional credit. They can be used toward raising membership status. There is no limit to the number of elite nights members can earn during the year.

This card expands on the Marriott’s relationship with Chase bank. They have teamed up to create a series of consumer cards in the past, including the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Card, the Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card in the U.S. and Canada.
