The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card Gets a New Name, a New Look, and More Benefits

The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card Gets a New Name, a New Look, and More Benefits
The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

The Marriott Rewards Premier plus Credit Card is getting a reboot and a new name starting on February 28th, from that point on it will be known as the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card. With this rebranding, new Cardholders will be able to earn 100,000 bonus points once they spend $5,000 during the 90 days they have their new card. This bonus will only be available for a limited time so people who are interested may want to check out this card sooner than later.

This announcement goes hand in hand with the rollout of Marriott’s new loyalty program – Marriott Bonvoy, which is set to replace Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards, and Starwood Preferred Guest. Marriott Bonvoy is set to go live on February 13th.

Some new benefits and some things stay the same

One of the things that will not change with this brand reboot is that cardholders still earn 6 points for every dollar they spend while visiting Marriott Bonvoy brands and double points on all other purchases.

That said the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card comes with some additional perks and benefits, including receiving an extra free night once they spend $60,000 each year. This night can be redeemed at any Marriott property offering a redemption value of up to 35,000 points.

Chase and Marriott will also be adding in a $100 luxury property credit into the mix starting in April. Cardholders can get this credit when they pay for their stay using their card.
What about Elite status? Cardholders will also get 15 Elite Night Credits, which can be used to get the next level of Elite status.

With Chase, mobile app people will also be able to access special offers from retailers and if their card goes missing or is stolen they can use the app to lock and unlock their card.

Some benefits are staying the same including:

  • Getting a free night on their anniversary
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Guaranteed Silver Elite Status
  • Free Wi-Fi in their hotel room

Other Marriot credit cards see changes too

With the rollout of the new card and loyalty program, there are also other changes to the brand. They will no longer take applications for the Marriott Rewards Premier plus Business Credit Card starting on February 13th. That said existing cardholders will still be able to use their cards and get the benefits.
Last but not least last summer the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Card stopped taking applications, and it is now being rebranded as the Ritz-Carlton Card.
