Chase and Marriott have rolled out the new Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card, and it represents a first for them because it is Marriott’s first credit card that does not have an annual fee. That said, it also lets cardholders earn up to triple points on spends, while coming along with a 50,000-Point bonus offer, which kicks in once cardholders spend $2,000 during the first three months they have the card. This bonus is only available for a limited time.
The Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card is seen as a way to give cardholders more – without an annual fee. “We know not every Cardmember wants to pay an annual fee, so we worked closely with Marriott to create a product that complements the $95 Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card – all while providing valuable rewards to those passionate about reconnecting with family and friends through travel,” said Leslie Gillin, Chase Co-Branded Cards President.
“The new no-annual fee Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card provides a very rich earn for one of the top travel programs, with more than 7,000 properties around the world and new hotels being added to Marriott Bonvoy every day,” she added.
Earning triple and double points on travel
Cardholders earn triple points when they use their card to book stays and pay for extras at participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels. Clearly, this card is geared toward travel, so cardholders also earn double points on other travel spends as well, including airfare and rental cars. All other purchases net them one point per dollar.
Silver status and other benefits
Cardholders also get 15 elite night credits every year, which paves the way for them to get Silver Elite Status.
When traveling there are no foreign transaction fees to deal with and the card also comes along with travel related coverage including trip delay reimbursement and purchase protection.
Cardholders also receive personalized merchant offers and can lock or unlock their card via the Chase mobile app any time they want or need. Last but not least the card is outfitted with “tap to pay” technology.
