Which Credit Cards Earn Marriott Rewards Points?

While none of Marriott’s co-brand cards offers the return on non-bonus spending of the SPG cards of old, cardholders can still collect a ton of Marriott points by stacking credit card spending on bonus categories with shopping portal bonuses and Marriott promos, and by taking advantage of any bonus points awarded for in-hotel spend.

Marriott Gold and Platinum Status Challenge

Marriott has announced a status match challenge; very similar to the Starwood status challenge from last year. This time around the match requires 8 or 16 stays, which is lower than the 9 or 18 stays needed for the SPG challenge. Unfortunately, there is no link to the offer, and you will have to call up to register.

Updated Terms for Approvals & Signup Bonuses with Sapphire Credit Cards

Chase has updated the offer details and approval requirements for its Sapphire family of cards. In Summary: If you have any card in the Sapphire product family or have received a new cardmember bonus from those cards in the past 48 months you’re not eligible to be approved for another Sapphire family card. If you currently hold a Sapphire credit card you may be eligible to change the Sapphire card you have to a different card, but you will not receive a new cardmember bonus if you change cards.
