Marriott is giving away rooms for FREE. The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card is a must add to your wallet if you spend one night a year in a hotel.
Marriott is the biggest hotel chain in the US so you will always find something where you need it and they have options that range from affordable to the ultra luxurious resorts.
This card is a no brainer. The current sign up bonus gives you 3 Free Nights (each valued up to 50,000 points for a total of 150,000 points). 50,000 Points will easily get you free rooms in their Select and Longer Stays brands. If you are smart and flexible, you can use this to score free nights in the Premium Brands as well!
For example, you could book 5 nights in the Maldives at the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort and Spa for less than 50,000 points per night!
In addition to the free nights, this card is a great everyday card as you will earn a lot of points on every day spending with 3x points on gas/grocery/dining. Even better, you will earn tons of points when booking Marriott properties at a rate of 17X per dollar spent. Always book a Marriott Hotel with a Marriott Branded Credit Card!
Additionally, the card gives you automatic Elite Silver Status and provides you an easier path to get you Gold Status.
Pro Tip: pair this card with an American Express Platinum Card which gives you automatic Gold Status!
Plus, you get an annual free night award every year up to 35,000 points. I was able to maximize a free night at a hotel outside of Zion National Park which would have been over $350.
To maximize your points to the fullest, try to use your points or stays that are 5 days as Marriott will give you the 5th night for free. With this sign up bonus and annual night, you could actually get 5 free nights!
Save your points like I did and stay at one of the nicest hotels in the Marriott Portfolio, The St Regis Maldives!
