Our Verdict

Previous best bonus was 100,000 points + 25,000 anniversary points + elite status. This offer is the best we’ve ever seen with 125,000 points + $200 credit. Unfortunately, this offer is not available via referral, so no double dipping with a friend.

This can be a good offer for some people, but just keep in mind the massive annual fee. I’d make sure you have a good plan for the Marriott points and resort credit before signing up. We will add this to our best credit card bonus post. There is also an increased offer on the Marriott business card from American Express.
