Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card Offers Increased, Best We've Ever Seen
It's true that 2021 was the year of the huge credit card welcome offer. We had to compile a list of 100K offers. Amex Platinum and Chase Sapphire Preferred are both at record highs. Even the most obscure cards, such as the Chase British Airways Visa card, offer better deals than ever. The Bonvoy program did not want to be left behind. Some of the new Marriott Bonvoy credit cards offers are quite amazing, others are just plain great. Let's take a closer look at the details.
These offers will expire tomorrow, November 3, 2021. Don't forget to keep your points in reserve as the program will be changing next year.
Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express card
The best deal we've seen for this card is 125,000 points plus a $200 restaurant credit offer. I think this offer is much better and makes me consider grabbing the card. I was sure I wouldn't. Let's hope I don't fall under Amex pop up purgatory.
150,000 points + one free night award worth 85,000 points (Category 8 standard rate).
For Card Membership, Card Members must spend at least $5,000 on their Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card within the first three months to qualify.
Annually, Card Members get a one-night free award (redemption level at or below 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points) at a participating hotel. 15 Elite Night Credits per calendar year are available towards the next level in Marriott Bonvoy Elite status. $300 in statement credits is available each year for Card Membership purchases made at eligible hotels participating in Marriott Bonvoy.

Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card
Some may have preferred the 550,000 point per night certificate offer, which was available for a limited time last year. The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless offer had a maximum value of 250,000 points. However, some people prefer not to be tied down by certificates and prefer points. This offer offers a bit of both.
125,000 points, one free night award (Category six standard, Category seven off-peak rates)
New cardholders must spend at least $5,000 on their Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card within the first three months to qualify.

These Marriott Bonvoy Credit Cards Offers are Great. But, Are You Eligible for One?
These rules can be difficult to understand. Frequent Miler's Greg has done an excellent job explaining all the hoops that you have to go through. If you have any questions about eligibility, you can read his article.
These massive deals continue to come in and I love every second of them. These offers were great for the most part. The Boundless and Bold cards offer decent deals, but the Brilliant and Bonvoy Business cards I find the most interesting. I consider it a win-win situation to be able receive more welcome offers and a night free.
