Background

My criteria for posting the top credit cards at any given time is typically based on increased or limited time welcome offers that make the cards more enticing. I will also include cards without limited offers if they are as competitive or more competitive than the cards with limited time offers. Note that I receive commission on some of the cards posted here but I will always post the best offers currently available regardless of whether I receive any form of compensation.

Receive automatic Silver Elite Status with the card, one free award night every year after your card account anniversary.Some people have reported receiving offers on their old SPG cards to “upgrade” to this card without having to run their credit. If you’re targeted with this offer, I would highly consider making the upgrade. The award night can be used for hotel redemption of 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points or less at a participating hotel. Terms apply.

This card is similar to the one offered by Chase below. By getting both cards, 210,000 points can get you 5 nights at a Category 6 hotel (if you book 4 award nights you’ll get the 5th night free).
