New Marriott Rewards Credit Card Aims To Help Cardholders Fulfill Travel Dreams

[Saturday, May 19th, 2018]

It’s been said that the world is a book, and those who don’t travel read only one page. If that’s true, then the folks at Marriott International and Chase Card Services are determined to get people reading more chapters in that book.

The new Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card is offering cardholders access to high-value rewards that will allow them to stay at Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, and Starwood Preferred Guest properties using loyalty points. They’ll also get perks like guaranteed elite status, no foreign exchange fees when using their cards overseas, and access to premium Wi-Fi and other travel benefits.

Cardmember benefits include a sign-up bonus of 100,000 points, six points for every dollar spent on purchases at participating Marriott properties, double points on all other purchases, and a certificate for a free night’s stay on their cardholder anniversary. There are over 6,500 properties to choose from in 127 countries, covering 29 different hotel brands, so there is a wealth of opportunity for cardholders to use their points.

Relaxing with loved ones and experiencing diverse cultures are key

As part of the kick off to their new offerings, Chase and Marriott conducted a national survey of households who were planning trips within the next year and a half to find out what their travel goals, hopes, and dreams are.

Ninety-six percent of respondents said they try to align their travel plans and their personal passions, and 85 percent said their travel plans were specifically designed to allow them to spend time with loved ones and/or relax. Other important values included getting out of their comfort zone (76 percent said this) and experiencing new cultures (78 percent valued diversity in their travel plans).

Using a travel rewards credit card like the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card, or another co-branded travel card, can help travelers get more value from their trip. The ability to earn frequent flyer miles and hotel rewards points when making everyday purchases lets cardholders plan itineraries that might not have been within their grasp if they couldn’t redeem their credit card rewards in the form of miles, hotel stays, or other travel perks. Travel rewards cards also offer things like concierge service and trip insurance that can lend peace of mind to any journey.
