Last Call: Marriott Rewards Premier Plus 100k Signup Bonus

The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus 100k signup bonus expires on July 12, 2018. This is your last chance to get the 100k offer before it's lowered.

Marriott Rewards Premier Plus

  • Annual fee: $95
  • Signup bonus: 100,000 points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months
  • Earn 6 points for $1 spent at Marriott and SPG hotels
  • Earn 2 points on all other purchases
  • Free night award (valued at up to 35,000 points) every year after account anniversary
  • Guaranteed Silver Elite Status
  • 15 Elite Night Credits each calendar year (coming in 2019)
  • Free in-room wi-fi (coming in August)
  • No foreign transaction fees

Value of the signup bonus

Depending on how you plan to use the signup bonus, the 100k points are worth $800-$1,200.

Chase Marriott Rewards signup bonus = 100k Marriott points

Value (cents per point) = 0.8 to 1.2 

Value of the signup bonus:

  • 0.8 CPP * 100k = $800
  • 1.0 CPP * 100k = $1,000
  • 1.2 CPP * 100k = $1,200

Capital One Venture: $100 Global Entry/TSA Precheck Credit

The Capital One Venture card recently added a $100 Global Entry/TSA Precheck credit as a benefit. 

Learn more about the Capital One Venture card in this post or in the video below.

Capital One Quicksilver: $200 Signup Bonus

Direct link to offer: https://www.capitalone.com/credit-cards/quicksilver2/

The Capital One Quicksilver card earns 1.5% cash back on all transactions. The card typically has a $100-$150 signup bonus after $500 in spending.

For a limited time, the signup bonus is increased to $200 after $1,000 in spend within the first three months of account opening.

I'm not a fan of the card since it earns cash back only, and the Citi Double Cash card earns 2% cash back on everything. 

Barclays Arrival Plus: 60,000 Bonus

Barclays recently launched the Barclays Arrival Premier card that had no signup bonus AND a $150 annual fee. It's on my fail card list.

Coincidentally, The Barclays Arrival Plus card is back with a 60,000 point signup bonus. Get 60,000 points after spending $5,000 within the first three months of account opening. This is the highest signup bonus we've seen so far. Stay tuned for a full review soon.
