    How can you use Marriott Bonvoy Points?

    There are two main ways to use Marriott points.

    1) For Marriott hotel stays. This is probably obvious but what may not be obvious is that when you are using Bonvoy points to pay for a stay, the points rate includes taxes (though not those pesky resort fees) and your 5th night is free on an award reservation with 5 consecutive nights. This means that if a room is 35,000 Bonvoy points per night, you can get 5 nights for 140,000 Bonvoy points. That 5th night is free.

    Fifth night free awards, especially at high end Marriott properties, are undoubtedly the best way to redeem your Marriott Bonvoy points for maximum value.

    2) For airline miles. Marriott points transfer to 41 airline partners, well more than any other credit card program. YYou can check this chart to see all of their partners. There are many airlines for which Bonvoy is the only transfer partner, such as American Airlines and Asiana. If you transfer to airline miles, note that it takes 3 Bonvoy points to equal 1 airline mile. If you transfer 60,000 points, you get a 5,000 airline mile bonus. (60,000 points equal 25,000 airline miles.)

    3) Moments. One other way that some people choose to redeem Marriott Bonvoy points are Marriott Moments. These are experiences for which Marriott cultivates special experiences and sells them to members for points. They can be well worth a look. I've redeemed in the past for Moments like box seats at the US Open.

    What credit score do you need for the Chase Marriott Bonvoy card?

    You'll generally want to know that you have a credit score over about 690 to apply for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card.

    Is the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card metal?

    It is not.

    Is the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card worth it?

    Many apply for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card initially for the large bonus points offer that come with a new card, but the card remains a keeper for two reasons:

    • The 15 elite status night credits annually. Especially if you pair this card with an American Express Bonvoy Business and earn a total of 30 elite nights a year. You'd be Gold elite every year and just 20 nights shy of Platinum status - which gets you free breakfast, lounge access, and room upgrades. But even with just this one card, those 15 elite nights will make you Silver Elite.
    • The yearly free night. We always use the credit card free night award for a room worth $200+. For the $95 annual fee, we are more than $100 ahead each year.

    Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card Bonus Restrictions

    Note: You will only be approved for a Chase card like the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless if you have applied for fewer than 5 personal credit cards within the last 24 months from any issuer. (Business cards do not count against the total, except for Capital One and Discover, but are subject to the policy). Learn more about the 5/24 rule here.

    Additionally, you may not be eligible for this card if you already hold certain Marriott Bonvoy credit cards from American Express. Read the issuer's terms carefully should you choose to apply.
