Chase just announced an increased sign-up bonus for the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card of 80,000 bonus Marriott points after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months. The previous offer for this card was at 50,000 points, so this new offer is a great deal if you’re looking to book a Marriott stay in the near future.

Marriott hotel categories for
Free nights at Marriott hotels start at 7,500 points for Category 1 properties and go up to 45,000 points for a Category 9.

Is It Worth It?

When it comes to redeeming the 80,000 points, cardholders would be able to redeem for 2 nights at any Category 8 property which include the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback InnJW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVEMauna Kea Beach HotelWailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa and the Hotel Park City.

In TPG’s monthly valuation of points and miles for July, Marriott points are valued at 0.7 cents a piece.

On top of that, every year on your account anniversary you’ll receive a free night that can be used at category 1-5 locations.
