Our Verdict

Previous best bonus was 100,000 points, so this is an extra 25,000 points on card anniversary plus you get the elite status. There was an offer for a $700 statement credit that was targeted, but that did require a larger spend requirement of $15,000. I suspect it will be very easy to get and earn elite status at most chains next year due to COVID-19. This can be a good offer for some people, but just keep in mind the massive annual fee. I’d make sure you have a good plan for the Marriott points and resort credit before signing up. I think a lot of people will prefer the Boundless five free night offer if eligible for that. We will add this to our best credit card bonus post. There is also an increased offer on the Marriott business card from American Express.
