Marriot Rewards Signature Visa 70,000 points for spending 1000 in first 3 months
Deal DetailsLast Edited by BostonGirl April 24, 2014 at 08:18 AM
Chase Marriott Credit Card 70000 points + 1 free night stay is back, I just received a promo card in the mail for 70K points.
After approval, spend 1000$ in 3 months to earn 70,000 points and 1 free night stay (category 1-4, earlier they used to give 50 or 75 $ credit but this is better, worth anywhere between 100-250$, YMMV) on first use.
Next question you might ask, how much these points are worth?
Check out this post to get detailed description but IMO, these can be a worth lot more if you don't stay in Downtown hotels, at least in metros. I'm guessing if you use it well it can be worth around good 7-8 days or ~1000$, again YMMV. Good for frequent travelers or may be for a big family trip.
70 k can also be converted to 25k Southwest points (for those who need companion pass)
