This is a deal that’s worth mentioning, but not one that I’d necessarily recommend getting UNLESS you’re really looking for Marriott Rewards. The reason? Earlier this year Marriott offered a 100k bonus after $5k spend. That’s 20k more than the 80k that is regularly avail, and one that I’m sure will come around again. We’ve even seen 100k bonuses for the business version too. Both of those deals offer great bonuses for a much smaller minimum spend. It’d be a great 1-2 punch if under 5/24, but alas, I haven’t been in the situation to take advantage of those offers. Annual fee is waived the first year. $85 after that.
