Can the points be used for airline tickets or just hotel stays?

Marriott rewards points can indeed be used for airline tickets. You simply have to exchange your points for miles through one of Marriott's airline partners. You can also use your points to purchase gift cards and other material goods.

When I use this card at a Marriott, can I earn both the 10 points per dollar I spend on the room, plus an additional 5 points per dollar that I put on the card, making it essentially 15 points more

Feb 24, 2015
Not 100% sure, but I think the points you get for booking the room are status points (silver, platinum, etc.). The ones you get from your credit card can be redeemed for free night, and you only get 5 per $1 spent at Marriott locations.

I would like to get this card for the $100 off your first purchase (hotel stay) and would pay the first bill off in full. I'd probably never use it again and cancel it. Is that a good idea? I've more

The Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card is a solid option that has the potential to be extremely rewarding for a somewhat niche segment of the market, yet unspectacular for many others. Basically, there are two types of people who can get a lot from it: frequent travelers who are brand-loyal to Marriott and those who would be willing to become brand-loyal if there’s a big enough incentive. The former group will be able to regularly make purchases that qualify for the Marriott Card’s maximum earning rate, not to mention redeem often enough to avoid rewards devaluation. The latter group would have the opportunity to get acquainted with the chain without more

If you travel and frequently choose Mariot hotels then this card is simply a "no brainer." The rewards are great. It's also nice to know that you can have a free stay somewhere, which makes an impromptu trip or vacation a little less strenuous on the check book. The rewards are simple to use, and I have never had a problem using or activating them. This is a great credit card!

I travel the world so many times and I figured that I need this card. I required a reliable card that was able to give me excellent and great rewards. I searched all over and then decided to get the wonderful Marriott Rewards Premier Visa card. During my first year, the annual fee was not charged and I received a huge 50,000 bonus points and an unexpected free night at the hotel. Every year the also give me a totally free night even when I do not expect it. This is usually very nice. The $85 annual fee is not high compared to others, the free night is definitely worth more

Don't bother with this card. The points are hard to use. I wish I had just used one of my cash back cards all year instead and I would have had enough to cover my whole stay. Instead I have points that have can't be used when I want to travel.

This is one of the best hotel credit cards that is out there. I love using it every time I go to an Marriott Hotel. Most of the times now days I am traveling a lot since my kids are not going to school and it is the summer. Since there is not a foreign fee when I go abroad I don't get charged extra money for swiping my card. Also the cash advance rate is high and that makes it easy for me to earn money as rewards for travel. Overall this card is the best and I love it.

This card has treated me so well as far as getting perks! I've really enjoyed the Marriott hotels that I've stayed at as well so that's a plus. The APR is manageable, but I don't pay that anyways since I pay the card off every month. Overall, I'd suggest this card to anyone who travels frequently and needs a hotel, and would like to rack up some great rewards in the process!

As far as getting perks such as free nights at selected hotels, reductions this card is close to perfection and almost second to none, except perhaps the Citi Sapphire. Of course, it's only ideal for those who travel at least 3-5 a year and/or make a point of staying at hotels every time they travel.

I would agree that it's not easy to initially couch up +$270/night each time one travels, but I honestly think it's 100% worth it. I've traveled, and used the card 3-4 (each time staying 3-4 nights) times since I enrolled 9 months ago and I've already gotten 2 coupons for free stays and I the more

We travel all summer long to our daughters lacrosse tournaments, and make sure we stay at Marriott and use the rewards card. By the end of the summer we have enough points to get the next two nights free. We have always stayed at Marriott whenever we travel. Now having the rewards card makes it a win win situation!

Since I am in a relationship which requires a lot of traveling, this card is perfect for my life. After spending a set amount of money, you accumulate points which can be redeemed for a variety of different things. The APR on this card is sort of unfortunate, but as long as you pay your bills on time there shouldn't be a problem. Great for people who travel a lot and stay in hotels.

I upgraded to Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card in December 2012 because it had a micro chip. I traveled to Israel in January 2013, and I wanted to have a credit card with a micro chip. However, I was charged $85 Annual Fee the first year which should have been waived. In addition, in December 2013, I received a Marriott Rewards "Celebrate A Rewarding Year with your Anniversary Free Night". I telephoned Chase Bank and Marriott Rewards (800) 321-7396 for my Free Night e-Certificate in my Marriott Rewards Account. I told Marriott Rewards' Reservation Specialist that I would like to use my Free Night e-Certificate. I was told that I more

I also received a Marriott Rewards Premier card this year and missed the fine print that stated in very small text that I would be slapped with an annual fee and pay interest on top of it. I have to pay and there's no way around it. I didn't find out I couldn't even use my certificate until I tried to check into my local Marriott last week. I feel like I've been cheated.

We use this credit card for all business travel. The rewards from this card combined with our regular Marriott rewards has made it so that we never have to pay for a hotel. We even went for a week long vacation last year, and covered all of the hotel need with our rewards. The rate is a little high, but we pay it off monthly, so it doesn't really matter. The annual fee has paid for itself many times over in free hotel stays. I don't know if it would be worth it without our business expenses. We get refunded for everything we put on the card. In order for more

The Marriott credit card is great for traveling. I mainly opened this credit card because they had a limited time offer that you can earn 40,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 in your first 3 months and then you will also get a $100 credit after my first purchase. I was immediately thrown away by this deal. I use this all the time to book my flights and I get so much points for hotel and airfares. Definitely a great one to have and their deals is also great. You can redeem the points to book a hotel room at all the Marriott hotels all over the world. It is more

I have had this card for almost a year. I signed up because of a promotion to get several free nights. I didn't have any problems redeeming the certificates and used them to stay at two different hotels. This card is great if you travel a lot as the points accumulate quickly. I have had good service at all of the Marriotts I have stayed with. The APR with this card is higher than some other options. This card does have an annual fee, but if you are able to accumulate enough points it makes it more than worth it. I have had to call customer service a couple times, more

I have had this card for three years. I use it since I travel at least twice a month for my job. I have traveled as much as 40 weeks out of the year, so I understand the benefits of having a card that offers rewards for hotels. As I get reimbursed for all of my travel expenses, it’s really nice to have benefits from work that extend to private use. I accrue tens of thousands of points each year and use it for family vacations and once for an anniversary get-away for my wife and I. When I consider the annual fee, and that I get reimbursed for so more

I first signed up for this card because I often stay at Marriott hotels throughout the year. I figured that I could use the card for some large purchases I had planned and earn points in return. What I found is that I often used this as my primary card for ongoing expenses. I have used several other rewards cards in the past, but this one has been the most satisfying for me. Overall I have been very happy with my Marriott rewards card. I did find that my APR and cash advance fee was relatively high. So if that is something that concerns you then you might be better more

We've had the Marriott Rewards card for a couple of years now and in general have been happy with the experience. The Marriott Rewards card has some pros and cons. The pro is that, if you use it as your primary card, the points will add up quickly and you'll soon be on your way to earning free stays at Marriott hotels. The con is that there is an annual fee that pops up not long after you are using the card. In our case, we would rather earn points and rewards on a card that doesn't charge us a fee. But, some might find that the perks of the more

The Marriott Rewards Premier Card from Chase is very nice. I signed up and just after my first purchase, I received 50,000 points, plus a free night's stay at a Marriott. I used these points to stay for a 4 night vacation and I still have 12,500 points left! The cards interest rate is fairly low, compared to other cards. I've never had to deal with their customer service, so I can't comment on that. Overall, I'm very happy with this card.

The Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card is a great hotel rewards credit card for people like me who travel extensively and prefer to stay at the Marriott hotels. I earned an awesome 50,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months. I have the option of redeeming these points for 6 free nights at a category 1 Marriott hotel which is a great offer. I also got 1 Free Night Stay e-certificate upon opening my account which is valid for 6 months from the date of issue. Not just this, I also earn points for every dollar I spend at Marriott locations, on dining, car rental more

As a frequent traveler, I was looking for a credit card that offered me great rewards. After doing some research, I finally decided on the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa card. For the first year, the annual fee was waived, and I received 50,000 bonus points as well as one free night. In addition, for every year anniversary, you receive another free night. Although the $85 annual fee is rather high, the free night is easily worth more than $85 so it's definitely worth it. In addition, I had a few issues with fraudulent activity on my account and Chase was extremely good about removing the charges and filing disputes.

Something for anyone who may be interested in applying for this card to bear in mind is that you really need to have a very good credit rating before doing so - without it, you'll be turned down out of hand. I was pretty lucky to get it I think. The Pros are that there are no foreign usage fees, you get points for pretty much anything travel-related you can imagine (including staying at the Marriot, obviously) and the intro points when you are accepted are very generous. All that said, the amount of points you get for each activity is somewhat stingy and the annual fee is a bit more

I needed a card to sort of help me with rewards and spending since I travel a lot, and I came across The Marriot Rewards Premier Credit Card. It's an absolute beauty with all the perks that it comes with and the fees aren't bad at all. You don't have to pay anything the first year, but every year after that is $85 annually. It isn't bad, only if you travel a lot, because the rewards overshadow that. I enjoyed my first 7 free nights when I went to Miami over the summer. This card is great for you if you plan to travel a lot, if you shop around more

Not necessarily the best credit card there is, but the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card hit the jackpot, in my opinion, with the initial bonus. Points are not worth very much and they don't pile up too fast either, so the 50k points bonus is more than welcome.

Okay, next issue. I've had this credit card for about six months now and I don't have too much to complain about it, except for, sometimes, the poor customer relations department. Then, about the bonus system itself, there's not much to be said. You earn between 1 to 5 points per dollar spent, with the mention that you get 5 points only if more

One of the best featured cards out there. Customer service is awesome, benefits are awesome when you stay at their hotels. I didn't use for a while and missed out on some rewards. Other than that, its pretty much the same as any other credit card. Interest rate for me was lower than most others so that's a plus. I like to use it for hotels and use my other card for airfare. Not sure why its listed as having no promo apr. Mine came as 12 months 0% interest. The points also grow fast which is a great plus. A few free rooms a year is good by me.

I've had this card for about 9 months, it has its benefits and it has some drawbacks. The biggest benefit is that this card lets you accumulate points whenever you stay at a Marriott Hotel. Marriott owns Courtyard and Residence Inn hotels as well, which may be more economical. Of course you get bonus points for flying as well when you use this card but not at the same rate as Marriott Hotel spending. Outside of this the credit card is very much like other credit cards I have, which means interest rates, grace periods, etc. The bottom line is if you travel a lot you can accrue lots of more

This credit card is mediocre at best – the features it offers barely balance out the problems. It’s really only worth getting if you are a frequent customer of Marriott hotels (obviously), since the majority of the rewards are Marriott focused. I had a few issues with the card not registering points properly, and when I attempted to call their customer service lines it was a huge ordeal trying to get them to properly give the points I should have earned. The $85 annual fee is a bit steep, but assuming that you fly frequently and accrue enough points, you could end up getting a free night at one of more

My wife is the one that mostly uses this card because she travels a lot for her job. At first I was concerned about the $85 annual fee; but, once I realized that you basically get a free room at a Marriott hotel every year, it really made sense to have the card. And the bonus point are great since she gets them at 5 times the normal rate when she stays at a Marriott. Add in the fairly low interest rate and the fact that it is a Visa and not some brand of card that isn't taken everywhere, and this is a pretty good card to have.

Marriot Rewards Premier Credit Card is an ok card to have. The customer service is pretty terrible and the application process was a real big hussle. It took over two months for the company to get me the card after applying for it, it felt like forever. After getting this card I really haven’t gotten as much as I expected out of it. The interest rate is pretty bad and there is no rewards like any most of the other cards out there. I really would not recommend this card for anyone, it is average and it has a really bad delay after the application and also a horrible customer more

As someone who travels quite a bit, I was discouraged that I could not find a type of card to suit my needs. Many credit card companies claim to give rewards to travelers, most deliver, but I’ve found that the rewards they offer are somewhat small. Luckily, coming across the Marriott Rewards Premier credit card was the best thing that ever happened to me. This credit card offers fantastic awards for those who travel, giving users a way to get perks, while simultaneously keeping the functionality of a credit card. The application process was extremely easy and I couldn’t be happier. Recommended.

Working in the airline industry allows me to travel almost on a weekly basis, and this credit card has turned out to be a very useful one, indeed. One of my friends in the airline industry told me about this card and I thought I wold give it a try. One of the nice things about the card is that the first year you pay no membership fee. There is a fee after that, but it is reasonable in my opinion. I have been able to easily earn free nights at one of my favorite hotel's, the Marriott by using this card. Surprisingly, points can add up quite fast making more

I travel quite a bit for my job, and usually stay at Marriott hotels. I knew I should get a card that would allow me to earn really good rewards and free stays, so I applied for this card after a co-worker recommended it. The initial reward after I was approved was really nice - the best I have ever gotten. I actually used the free night I received within 2 weeks of getting my card, for a quick working-vacation trip. The points can accumulate very quickly when you use this card for everyday purchases, and I have quickly earned enough points for high-value rewards. Their customer service is fantastic, more

I travel all the time and my hotel of choice has always been Marriott. I was so excited when I first heard that this card existed. After doing a little research, I had to apply. The card has no annual fee for the first year. I love that! It gives me time just to see how beneficial the card will end up being for me. On top of that, I got 30,000 free points! The free points I got and the points I was accruing from using the card has afforded me some very nice accommodations. I am a big stickler for customer service and they have done an excellent more

If you travel then having a hotel points credit card like this one is great. You earn points on all purchases and extra points on Marriott stays. While the points thresh holds seem monumental at first you will find they add up quickly and will be redeeming for hotel stays and upgrades in no time. The interest rate and fees on the card are not always ideal but the points for stays more then make up for this if you travel and use them. A must for the hotel goer, but would not recommend for people who do not stay at hotels much.

I often stay at Marriott's so I had to get this card! I saw that there's no annual fee for the first year which was a plus. The best thing about the card is the 30,000 free points I receive just for signing up. With those 30,000 points, I was able to stay at the moderately priced Springhill Suites for a few nights. I don't use this card often but always use it when I'm on a business trip as my company will reimburse me and I can earn 3x the points for when I use it on a Marriott-related purchase. In the future, I'll want to stay at an more

I have the Marriott Rewards card and have used it in the past with no problems. The customer service is great and the rewards system is well thought out and easy to understand, but honestly, I've found there are a few other rewards cards out there that are easier to use and provide a much greater field of choices when it comes to rewards. If you are loyal to Marriott and travel quite a bit, this card could be for you. However, in my own experience, I much prefer having options on where to stay, where I get my rewards and how I receive rewards. I only carry a few more

My Marriott Rewards Visa is the card I use most. The credit terms and payment requirement are like any other card. However, this card includes no cost travel insurance and car rental insurance. If a trip is cancelled or delayed the travel insurance reimburses me for expenses char6ed to the card. When I rent a car I waive insurance from the rental company. The rental insurance Marriott provides will cover the car if it is damaged. I have used the travel insurance benefits on two occasions. Each time the credit card company responded quickly and resolved the problem to my satisfaction.

This card has been worth every penny so far in my use of it. To start off with the 0% foreign transaction fee has been a great resource when traveling abroad. Chase gives a good exchange rate and not having to pay any extra fees when I use my card overseas has been wonderful. The extra bonus points don't hurt either - it's enough to a one night stay at the Ritz Carlton in most cities. Additionally there's a yearly free night at any Marriott hotel, regardless of price/status/star level. The free night does expire after 6 months so be sure to use it - I didn't know this when more

Joe is absolutely correct this card is geared toward getting you to spend time in Marriott. But who are we kidding? Unless you live somewhere out of nowhere. you probably stayed at marriott property at least once in your life. In fact, you probably spend at LEAST ONE night in Marriott per yr or so. If you are someone who does, this card is great.

forget all the extra points(great), what makes this card great is you get a free hotel voucher each year (basically cancels out annual fee) + free silver status each year (because they give you 15 nights toward your membership level).

other than that, I suggest more

You’re right @WonBuddyLee, most people have indeed stayed at a Marriott Hotel before and could make use of a free night or two, but unless someone stays in Marriott Hotels frequently, the odds are that they can make better use of their rewards by applying them to bigger priorities. Most people don’t have more than a couple of credit cards and don’t want to deal with having more, so why waste the opportunity to get a card that will help you save hundreds on things like gas and groceries in order to get a free night on a trip you MIGHT take?

That’s why I recommended that only loyal Marriot customers more

Whether you’re a loyal Marriott customer or are simply in the market for a rewards credit card, it’s likely that you’ll come across the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card, as hotel credit cards and airline credit cards are typically quite popular amongst all consumers. Whether or not you should apply for this Marriott Credit Card is another story entirely. The two biggest considerations in making this decision are how the card stacks up against the rest of the rewards market and how often you will be able to redeem points. First though you have to realize that you should only consider rewards cards if you have good credit or better more
