I just heard that the Marriott Rewards card has increased its offer to 80,000 points, you will too as it will be slammed over the web by credit card affiliate pumpization machines.
Here’s the offer:
- 80K pts
- $3000 spend
- $85 fee
What you might want to do instead:
Go to see the Doctor of Credit. He has a prescription for a 70,000 card, $2000 spend, no annual fee. Keep your money in your pocket.
Update – I forgot to mention that the fee free version comes with an extra night bonus too! Thanks to Will for pointing this out.
- Cat 1-4 night free for signing up ($85 offer doesn’t have this)
- Cat 1-5 night free on annual fee (next year)
For anyone struggling with the math… think about this:
Would you pay $85 for 10,000 pts (ignoring the free night you lose, and the extra spend required…) Yes/No??
If you answered yes, would you pay $595 annual fee for a 70K offer? Because that is what you are saying..
