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 much of my travel expenses, the yearly fee, really is worth it for me. I get lots of personal trips from the points so the annual fee, is really tiny compared to the benefits. However, it is something for people to be aware of if they aren’t getting so much of their costs covered. Great card for business travelers. Amazing perks for the cost if you have a good work travel program.

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 off applying for a different card.

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 card offset the annual fee. The few times we've needed customer service to question a charge we've done so through the internet - communication was quick and professional and we were happy with the outcome. Overall, we’ve been happy with the card, but I think we are happier with credit cards that let us earn points and rewards without any charges.

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 and airline tickets purchased directly with the airline and on eligible purchases everywhere else. These really add up to a lot of benefits. Moreover, their annual fee of $85 is waived during the first year but one must pay it after the first year. Trust me, this fee is worth your money if you travel frequently and avail the many additional benefits that this card offers.

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 higher than comparable cards. Definitely worth considering if you are a traveler.

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 in hotels (restaurants also) and if you use airlines and car rentals often. I recommend this card, only to people that love to travel because it is absolutely great for that.

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 you shop at Marriott locations, which is not necessarily convenient, but it's alright I guess. All in all, do I recommend this credit card? I'm not sure. I guess it depends on your needs - if you need a credit card with reliable customer service and a strong bonus system, search more. If you just need an 'OK' credit card with an 'OK' bonus system, the Marriott Rewards Premier card is probably the one for you.

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 bonus points with this card, it's very good for business travel.

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 the hotels, so it balances out.

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 service line.

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 the card very functional in that regard. Overall, good card, good customer care, and good rewards. I highly recommend this card to anyone who travels a lot.

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, and anytime I have called I have been treated as though I am their most important customer, something I appreciate given the business industry I am in. I highly recommend this card for frequent travelers, and even the infrequent traveler.

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 job in providing me that. I'm always kept aware of the latest news or changes regarding my card. The fact that I do travel so much really helped me to appreciate the travel insurance and car rental insurance that comes with the card. I have relied upon those benefits numerous times and really enjoy having that available for m when I'm away from home. Fantastic card to have...especially if you're a Marriott lover.

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 elite JW Marriott so when I rack up enough points to earn a free night I'll be sure to use it on that.

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 credit cards, and I'm planning on canceling this one in favor of one that offers broader options. As far as the card itself, again, I've had no problems and no complaints with billing or customer service.

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 I signed up and assumed the night lasted a year. Needless to say I was disappointed when it didn't. Overall this is a good card and if you travel a lot I recommend it.

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 you still stay away from cap1 but head toward other chase cards, like chase sapph or if your credit rating isn't high enough, go to chase freedom. i have this card, because I stay at marriott a lot, and I use it exclusively at marriott (2 marriott point or 1 marriott point isn't worth the same as 1 airline miles to me). no forex charge on this card means u can use it internationally, which is great.

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 and typically pay your bill in full on a monthly basis. You really don’t want to be turned down for a card or see the value of your rewards lessened by finance charges. Once you cross that off this little checklist here, take a look at exactly what the Marriott Premier card offers: 50,000 bonus points after first use, 1 free night upon approval, 1 additional free night each year, 5 points per dollar spent at Marriott Hotels, 2 points per dollar spent on airline, dining and rental car purchases, and points toward Marriott Silver Status. Just from this, it’s abundantly clear that the Marriott Credit Card is intended for frequent travelers and you should have a sense of whether it’s right for you. Hotel-specific credit cards tend to offer very similar rewards structures, so deciding which one to get (if any) is really about which hotel you stay at most rather than which has slightly better rewards. People who compare personal finance products (either professionally or for a hobby like me) typically recommend avoiding credit cards tied to particular companies unless you use that company’s services multiple times per month because you want to be able to redeem your points frequently in order to benefit more often and avoid something called devaluation. So unless you spend at least 20 nights in Marriott Hotels each year, you probably want to go for a good cash back card like the Capital One Cash Credit Card, which offers 1.5% cash back across all purchases. Cash rewards are a lot less hassle and can easily be more lucrative than niche rewards cards like the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card.
