- Chase has brought to us the best signup bonus on its Marriott Visa personal card. You will receive 107,500 Marriott Rewards points after you spend $5,000 and add an authorized user within 3 months of new account opening. As the Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) programs are on the way to integrate and allow points transfer between linked accounts at a ratio of 3:1, our valuation of Marriott Rewards points is now 0.75 cent per point, exactly a third of that of SPG points. The $85 annual fee is not waived, so this signup bonus is worth ~$720 in our book. 107,500 Marriott points can be transferred to 35,833 SPG points, and this offer is similar in value to Amex SPG which offers 35,000 SPG points with an annual fee waiver.
- Amex has upped signup bonus of its Amex Hilton Surpass (annual fee $75) and regular Amex Hilton (no annual fee): Surpass offers 100K points upon signup plus a free weekend night at select Hilton Worldwide hotels after you pay the second annual fee; the regular Hilton Amex offers 80K points on signup. As our valuation of Hilton points is 0.4 cent per point, the signup bonus is worth $325 for Surpass and $320 for regular Hilton Amex, respectively. For the second year after paying the $75 annual fee, Surpass also gives a free night, which can invaluable. Both signup offers are the best in history.
