Coronavirus has changed the game when it comes to how we spend our money. Credit card issuers have taken note and are regularly implementing new offers to encourage spending.

At the beginning of July, Chase announced new perks and benefits for its Chase Sapphire lineup including up to 10x points on select categories. Now, Chase is back at it again with new, limited-time 10x bonuses for select cobranded Marriott credit cards.

Marriott Bonvoy cardmembers will be able to earn 10x points on purchases at restaurants and gas stations. Chase notes that it is “one of the richest non-travel rewards ever offered to Marriott Bonvoy cardmembers.”

From now through Sept. 15, cardmembers can register for 10x points through this dedicated Chase landing page. Again, not all Marriott cards qualify for the bonuses, but if your card is listed above, consider yourself golden.

The 10x bonus is valid for up to $3,500 in spending during the promotional period from July 15 to September 15. Chase also notes that food delivery services, like DoorDash and Grubhub, will also qualify for 10x Bonvoy points per dollar.

Chase has told TPG, “We’ve identified an issue where some customers may not be able to access the link. We’re working hard to fix it as quickly as possible. We anticipate it will be fixed by the time the offer goes live on July 15, but please note that cardholders can opt in at any time until Sept. 15 and it’s retroactive on spend from July 15 on.”

Is it worth it?

According to TPG valuations, 10 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar is worth 8 cents. That would put it at the top of our list of the best credit cards for gas and near the top for best credit cards for dining. If you have one of these cards — and value Marriott points — it certainly can make sense to shift your restaurant and gas purchases to it.

Bottom line

Marriott cards also have an ongoing promotion for 6x points for groceries through July 31, 2020. That means, for a two week period, these Marriott cards will be one of the most rewarding for three everyday categories of spending — groceries, dining and gas.

Note that Marriott’s Amex cards don’t qualify for this offer and neither do a few existing Marriott Chase cards. However, if you’re on the list, this new promotion for 10x points for the categories of restaurants and gas is a lucrative addition for summer spending to fuel up — whether that is through dining out, delivery in, or filling up the gas tank.
