Now through October 23, 2019, you can earn a 100,000 point welcome bonus valued at $900 with the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card. That's 25,000 more points than the previous sign up offer. Additionally, get 0% APR for the first 6 months, after which the regular rate will vary between 17.74% - 26.74%. To get the full 100K bonus points, be sure to spend at least $5,000 within the first three months of account opening.
This card allows you to earn 6x points at participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels. Additionally, earn 4x points at U.S. restaurants and gas stations. Every card account anniversary, you'll receive 1 Free Night Award, and you have the opportunity to earn an additional Free Night Award when you charge $60K to your card in a calendar year. Night Awards cover redemption levels up to 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points at participating hotels.
The card does come with a $125 annual fee, but this is pretty reasonable for a higher end card. Don't forget you will also start out at Marriott Bonvoy Silver Elite status with your card. If you spend $35,000, you will then get bumped up to Gold.
100,000 bonus points can go a long way to earning you free nights. You can really stretch your points if you redeem at Category 1 hotels, which include brands like Courtyard and Fairfield. These average 7,500 points per night, which means that your welcome bonus alone could cover more than a dozen nights. Otherwise, if you'd like to go for a higher end experience, consider two nights at a luxurious Category 6 hotel like the Ritz-Carlton Bali.
