Know someone that could benefit from the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card? Chase and Marriott are offering a 20,000-point bounty for each friend you refer who signs up for the card through your referral link. And there isn’t a catch; those you refer will still get the public 80,000-point sign-up bonus after spending $3,000 in the first three months.

That’s enough for your friend or family member to get four free nights at a Category 4 hotel — and a free night for you at the same hotel. Or, you can convert your 20,000 Marriott point bonus to 6,667 Starpoints, if it makes sense for you to transfer Marriott points to Starwood.

The terms and conditions note that “There is no maximum to the bonus points that can be accumulate [sic] for this offer.” So, if you’re popular enough, you might not be paying for a Marriott hotel for a while. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait a couple of months before you can cash in, as you have to “allow up to 8 weeks after each new cardmember’s approval for bonus points to post to your account.”

Earn 20,000 Marriott Rewards points per successful referral through Chase's increased referral bonus.
Earn 20,000 Marriott Rewards points per successful referral through Chase’s increased referral bonus.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Head to Chase’s Refer-A-Friend website.
  2. Enter your last name, ZIP code and the last four digits of your Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card
  3. Follow the links to share via email, Facebook or Twitter.

If your friends and family don’t have a Marriott account yet, you can earn even more Marriott points by referring your friend to the Marriott Rewards program. You’ll earn 2,000 Marriott Rewards points per stay that your referral makes, up to five stays per referral. You can earn up to 50,000 points per calendar year from this referral program.

Just make sure to also send your friends to The Points Guy for tips on how to maximize their new Marriott points:
