New Marriott Bonvoy Welcome Offers

Advertiser Disclosure

Chase and Marriott have announced new Bonvoy welcome offer bonuses for its popular Marriott credit cards. Beginning January 25, new Marriott Bonvoy cardmembers can earn up to five free night awards – worth 250,000 points -with the popular Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card.

New, Limited-Time-Only Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card Welcome Offers

The Marriott Bonvoy family of credit cards from Chase provides versatile hotel rewards, Elite Night Credits, automatic Silver Elite Status, and more in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program. Chase issues two of the program’s co-branded credit cards, the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless and the Marriott Bonvoy Bold.

Chase and Marriott are now offering a new, limited-time-only cardmember welcome offer on the Boundless credit card. Beginning January 25 and running until March 27, 2024, new Bonvoy cardholders can earn up to five free night stays after meeting minimum spend requirements:

  • Marriott Bonvoy Boundless: New cardmembers can earn five (5) Free Night Awards (each night valued up to 50,000 points) after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first three (3) months from account opening*.
  • Marriott Bonvoy Bold: New cardmembers can earn 30,000 Bonvoy points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first three (3) months from account opening.

*Some hotels may charge resort fees.

Is the Latest Bonvoy Welcome Offer Worth It?

The 250,000-point bonus offer might sound impressive, but you must consider how hotel reward points work. Despite the big numbers on display, most hotel points are worth significantly less than airline miles, meaning the number you see isn’t the same as the value you’ll receive.

The average nightly rate for a Marriott hotel is currently around $250 per night. This valuation places the cash value of the five free nights Bonvoy welcome offer at around $1,250 – not bad for a $5,000 initial spend.

Both co-branded Marriott credit cards from Chase provide travel experiences that connect cardmembers with more of what they love. Marriott Bonvoy cardmembers enjoy benefits including no foreign transaction fees, baggage delay insurance, lost luggage reimbursement, and trip delay reimbursement.  They can also earn points on free-night purchases at over 30 Marriott Bonvoy hotel brands worldwide.

Here are the current brands that make up the Marriott portfolio:

AC Hotels Element JW Marriott Ritz-Carlton
Aloft Fairfield Inn Le Meridien Sheraton
Autograph Collection Four Points Marriott Hotels & Resorts SpringHill Suites
Bulgari Hotels Gaylord Hotels Renaissance Hotels Regis
Courtyard by Marriott Homes & Villas by Marriott Residence Inn TownePlace Suites
