Last I checked they no longer publish this benefit. So that's a concern. Maybe the language has been updated now.

From everything that's changed with the credit cards and the elimination of doubling up on the 15 night credit for multiple cards I would be astounded if Marriott doesn't have a 15 night cap on all credit card nights per elite qualifying year. I could certainly be wrong but within 12 months I won't be surprised if they just upgrade every consumer card to their new one and it doesn't have that benefit...otherwise it would be the card to keep just in case you need some extra nights late in the year...

Unless you have high spend and want to reach 100 nights to get Ambassador.

Actually there is plenty of precedent for legacy cards maintaining existing terms long after those benefits have been phased out on cards that are available for new applications. There are still legacy Chase UA cards out there with benefits (e.g., flexible PQM) that haven't been offered to new applicants for well more than five years.

Changing benefits is a different issue, obviously the issuers have the right to do that, though they are required to give notice.

I think Chase realizes that if it dumps the legacy MR card, it will lose cardholders, as there will be no reason for people to hold both the Chase and AMEX cards. They will definitely lose me.

#MeToo Though I might move the spend to my CSR.

Hello:
Do the elite credit card nights impact renewal status in any way? My billing date is the 14th and I receive the Elite Night credits around the 9th of the following month.

I was at 49 nights with the new Premier Elite status. and just hit 50 nights yesterday.

Paid: 22 nights
Redeemed: 2 nights
Rewards Credit Card: 26 nights

I am currently Lifetime Gold Elite (new) with 414 nights, 7 years gold or higher, 6 years Platinum or Higher.

When I got my 50th night from credit card spend, I would have expected to get my 50th night to change to 7 years Platinum or higher.

Does anyone know if the year credit when you reach the level or at the start of next year?

Thank you

So the Chase card has the $3k spend night credit, and the Amex card does not? If that is correct, I see no reason to use the Amex card for any kind of spending for people who have both cards?

Old Chase card only gets 1x points on "other spend", Amex gets 2x.

Good point. That said, most people probably put "other spend" on cards other than Chase Marriott and Amex SPG. So to be precise and rewording my previous statement, we should put SPG+Marriott spending on the Chase Marriott card rather than Amex SPG card.

Additionally, the SPG card earns 6x on Marriott/SPG spend whereas legacy Chase earns only 5x. Further, SPG card gets a 35k annual cert, while legacy Chase gets only a 25k cert.

The SPG Amex is the keeper of the two, unless you are willing to essentially waste spend at 1 point per dollar to earn extra elite nights.

That's backwards.

Ah, thanks I thought both were at 6x. So the Chase Marriott retains the 3k spend night credit, and has not been upgraded from 5x to 6x?

The annual cert is a different issue. I could renew a card and pay the annual fee only to get the cert, and then 25k or 35k does not matter because the cert is worth more than the annual fee. What I am considering mostly is on which card I should put my SPG+Marriott spend on.
