The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card just launched a limited-time welcome bonus of 100,000 Marriott points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months.
That’s higher than the welcome offer on the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card with a $450 annual fee (compared to the Boundless card’s $95 annual fee).
You can use Marriott points at more than 7,000 participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels around the world.
The Marriott Bonvoy Bold™ Credit Card with no annual fee also launched a limited-time welcome bonus: 50,000 points after you spend $2,000 in the first three months.

No matter where you’re headed, there’s a good chance you can find a Marriott hotel at your destination. That’s especially true now that Marriott and Starwood have merged — there are now more than 7,000 properties under the Marriott umbrella, so having Marriott Bonvoy points can come in handy for all sorts of travelers.
If you’re looking to earn more Marriott points, this newly elevated offer for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card could be worth it. You can now earn 100,000 points when you spend $5,000 on the card in the first three month.
The Bonvoy Boundless is currently the only Marriott card offering this many points as a sign-up bonus. If you want to avoid an annual fee, the Marriott Bonvoy Bold is worth a look instead — it’s offering a welcome bonus of 50,000 points after you spend $2,000 in the first three months.
Keep in mind that we’re focusing on the rewards and perks that make these credit cards great options, not things like interest rates and late fees, which will far outweigh the value of any points or miles. It’s important to practice financial discipline when using credit cards by paying your balances in full each month, making payments on time, and only spending what you can afford to pay back.
Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card details
The Bonvoy Boundless earns 6x points on eligible Marriott purchases, and 2x points on everything else. Just for being a cardholder, you get Silver Marriott status, and you also get 15 elite night credits each year to help boost you to the next status level.
Those benefits are all well and good, but it’s the Boundless card’s annual free night reward — which you can use at Marriott hotels that cost up to 35,000 points — that can really deliver significant value. Depending on where you use it, you could get more than $95 in value, in which case the card’s annual fee pays for itself.
