Marriott Introduces New Rewards Credit Card Option

Marriott

Introduces New Rewards Credit Card Option

Marriott has introduced the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature

Card, giving consumers a second choice for earning Marriott

Rewards via credit card.

The

Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature Card offers five Marriott

Rewards points for every dollar spent on the card on purchases at any participating Marriott properties worldwide. In addition, cardholders earn two points for every dollar spent

on airline tickets purchased directly with the airline, and at car rental agencies & restaurants

New cardholders can earn points which can be redeemed toward nights at participating hotel properties.

Annual fee:

$0 Intro fee for the first year. After that, $85

How

does this stack up with what Marriott is already offering, namely

the Marriott Rewards Credit Card

The

basic card has an annual fee of $0 Intro fee for the first year. After that, $45. However,

it offers a bit less -- three Marriott Rewards points for every

dollar spent on purchases at participating Marriott properties worldwide,

and one point per dollar on other purchases. It offers

new cardholders 30,000 bonus points after you spend $1,000 on purchases with the card in the first three months from opening the account.

Redeem points for nights at a participating Marriott property

other perks.

Which

is better? For frequent card users and/or those who travel frequently

to Marriott hotels and want to increase their potential rewards,

the $40 difference in annual fees may be worth it. For those

who use their cards less often or do not frequent Marriott properties

other than when you earn freebies, the basic card may be the

way to go.

Both

Marriott credit cards are issued by Chase.
