The Marriott Hotel chain has just made a drastic move that makes traveling all the better for their rewards members. The rewards system allows customers to open a Marriott Credit Card with Chase bank and gain points on select purchases, similar to Delta Sky Miles points. When a customer collects enough points, they can redeem a free night stay at any Marriott chain. On top of the points system, consumers are given extra benefits like late check out, early check in, free breakfast, and one free night after each year of membership.
Marriott and SPG have just merged their brands to become an even larger force. SPG contains familiar brands like The Ritz Carlton, Sheraton, and St. Regis as well as lower ranked brands. To make this change beneficial for their rewards members, SPG and Marriott points will now combine and can be used on over 25 different hotel chains. You can use your Marriott credit card for everyday purchases and score free nights at some of the nicest hotels in the world!
This mass of brands covers almost the entire world, so if you’re dying to stay in Bora Bora or even backpacking through Thailand all you need to do is save up your points or just wait one year to redeem your free night stay!
