Annual fee: $95

Sign-up bonus: Earn 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points after you use your new card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first three months of account opening.

Is it worth it? 100,000 points are worth $800, according to TPG valuations. The Boundless card also offers a solid return on eligible Marriott purchases (6x points) and everyday spending (2x points).

If you’re normally a frequent traveler loyal to Marriott, this is a great card to add to your wallet. You’re getting a sizable list of perks, including automatic Bonvoy Silver status. There’s also a pathway to upgrade to Gold Elite status by spending $35,000 on the card each year. You’ll also receive an annual free night award (worth up to 35,000 points), 15 elite qualifying night credits per year and more.

Can you apply for more than one Marriott card offer?

You can have more than one open Marriott card — some people in TPG’s office have two or three. With four total Marriott cards currently available for new applicants, there are a fair number of restrictions on who can earn the sign-up bonuses across the available cards — especially since you’re working across two different issuers with Amex and Chase.

To give a specific example, if you have the Marriott Bonvoy Business Amex card for your small-business spending needs but decide you want to jump on the Bonvoy Brilliant Amex card for its welcome offer and perks, you could theoretically have both of those cards and their bonuses.

Note that these restrictions are all in addition to Chase’s 5/24 rule (which applies to the Bonvoy Boundless and the Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card) and Amex’s one-bonus-per-lifetime rule (which applies to the Bonvoy Brilliant and the Bonvoy Business cards). You’ll want to make sure you’re eligible for these offers before applying.

Marriott cards already hold slots in our top hotel credit cards list. Add in the current increased bonus on the Bonvoy Boundless and the Bonvoy Bold, and you’ve got a compelling reason to consider getting a Marriott card now.
