US - Chase/AMEX Credit Card Nights

Starting 2019 - we will receive 15 nights from either Chase/AMEX credit cards. Has anyone received their 15 night credit yet?

I have not. Some marketing material has said starting in March.

The OP is talking about the 15 EQN, not free night certificates.

Has anyone received the annual free night certificate from AMEX yet? My annual fee was charged a week ago. I received an email several weeks ago saying that I would be getting another email once the 35K cert is posted. So far, I haven’t received the cert or the 15 nights.

One the other hand, I received a 25K cert and 15 nights from Chase on Nov 1. I upgraded to the Plus card after receiving the cert and nights.

Lots of people have. Check the wiki here. It says 8-10 weeks

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/marr...it-card-5.html

If you review some of the posts, it seems the free night posts on the 2nd of the month. So you should see yours probably on Mar 2.

In the past the SPG Amex free nights/stays posted mid-Jan I think.

They don't. That would be pretty bad for people with an anniversary late in the year. I'll be at over 55 nights by the end of May. Choosing 5 nights as my choice benefit plus 15 EQN gets me to PPE. If it went based on my card anniversary I would not have PPE for my summer trips.

Chase has historically given the night credits on the anniversary date, but I thought that I read that was not the case this year

That is correct. EQNs will be granted on or before March 1 of each year, new accounts after that point receiving them within sixty days.

Note also that the night credit is awarded to cardholders who held the card as of 12/31 of the prior year. So if you sign up for the card now, you won't get your first set of 15 nights until early 2020.

That does seem to be the case based on the T&Cs for the Chase Marriott card. However, this is from the T&Cs for the SPG luxury card.
For Card Accounts opened on or after 1/1/2019
Upon opening your Card Account, a maximum of 15 Elite Night credits will be credited to one of your Marriott Loyalty Program accounts operated by Marriott International, Inc. (i.e., Marriott Rewards®, Starwood Preferred Guest® or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards®) (the "Marriott Loyalty Program"), within 60 days.
So either Chase hasn't updated their verbiage, or the AMEX card has an advantage with this.

Question Bonvoy AMEX & Status

Hi,

I understand that if I get the AMEX Bonvoy card I get 15 nights towards my status. When will I be recognized for Platinum? Do I have to wait until the year-end or if I complete 35 stays (+15 for having the AMEX Bonvoy) will I get it right away? Can I cancel the card and keep the status once it's been achieved?

Marriott Bonvoy Card question

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but if I were to sign up for the Marriott Bonvoy card today, would I receive my full 15 night credit this year and again next year? I'm going to be short making platinum by 5 or 6 nights this year and would like to maintain Platinum status. They say it should happen within 60 days of approval. Does anyone have experience?

I currently have a Chase United Explorer Visa which I don't really use, would I get the point bonus and elite nights this year if I convert it to a Marriott Bonvoy card? Never mind just read you can't change outside of the plan type so this won't work.

Thanks!

You 'should' have time to get it this year and then annually thereafter.
