Analysis

The Chase Marriott Rewards has had several different offers in the past like an 80,000 point signup bonus with an $85 annual fee, and a 120,000 point signup bonus after $12,000 in minimum spend. 

The new 75,000 point signup bonus with the annual fee waived the first year has the highest return on spend compared to the previous offers. 

Interestingly enough, the new offer is similar to the Amex SPG card. SPG points transfer to Marriott at 1:3 ratio. 

The Chase Marriott Rewards Business card also has a 25% return on spending, which is an increase from the old offer.
