** On or before May 30th, 2018** - ALL Chase Marriott cardholders that held the card as of March 15th, 2018, will receive:
  • 1 Night Stay Certificate for a Category 1-5 Marriott Hotel
  • 15 Night Stay Credit towards elite status

** CHASE HAS CLOSED ACCOUNTS AS OF MARCH 15, 2018 **

By now you should have been notified that your Marriott Rewards® Visa® Credit Card will be closing on March 15, 2018. Here's what you need to know:

• CONTINUE EARNING.
You will still be able to continue to use your Marriott Rewards Visa Credit Card and earn points on eligible purchases through March 14, 2018. After that date, you will no longer be able to make purchases or earn points on your Marriott Rewards Visa Credit Card.

• USE YOUR POINTS.
This does not impact your Marriott Rewards account. You will still be able to access and use any points and benefits that you have earned.

If you have paid an annual fee for your card any time between April 2017 and December 2017, Chase Canada has said that they will give you a prorated rebate of the fee back as a statement credit on your account.


If, however, your annual renewal fee is due between January 2018 and March 2018, you will NOT have to pay it. You may continue to use your card until March 15, 2018

As a cardholder, you will still receive your 15 Elite Night Credits and Free Night Certificate, regardless of your anniversary date. They will be deposited into your Marriott Rewards account after March 14, 2018.


Existing Chase Marriott Visa cardholders will be given a special signup to the Amex SPG CC for 25,000 welcome points and $120/yr annual fee.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information below is left here for reference only, so that others who applied before the deadline can refer to the info.

If you find a working application link buried in this thread and apply through it don't be surprised if you do not get the advertised welcome bonuses.

Tips:
  • Go to marriott.com and apply for a Marriott Rewards account first, and have the member/account number ready during application. If you did NOT do this then Chase will create an account for you - look for the numbers on the lower left of your new Visa card, it may be displayed there.
  • Spend at least $1 on your new card by the 9th of the month, so that the txn posts by the 11th onto your online account at Chase (https://online.chasecanada.ca).
  • Seemingly, all Canadian Chase Marriott Visa accounts cycle on the 11th of the month. Points are posted by Chase to Marriott.com and the 50K points will appear by the 18th or 19th of the month.
  • You will see the points posted on page 3 of your paper statement when it arrives in the postal mail. Chase does not provide Canadians with an online PDF statement, only transactions. If by the 19th you don't see points posted, double-check the Marriott Rewards number on your paper statement to ensure it matches your true account number, in case Chase messed up and created a new MR account on your behalf.
  • When setting up payment for the card at online banking, look for "MARRIOTT VISA" as the card name.
  • If using this card outside of Canada, ensure you prime the PIN onto the card at a CHIP/PIN terminal while IN Canada, before you leave for your trip. You cannot prime the card while in Europe (for eg.)
  • YMMV, but if you decide to cancel this card, it is advisable to do it WELL before the anniversary date, as Chase may not pro-rate a refund.
  • If you plan to use this card outside of Canada (no FX fees), you should call Chase to let them know, so your card won't get locked. I've never called when using it on extended travel in the US, but for sure I would call and let them know if I was going to use it elsewhere (Europe, Asia, Antarctica).
  • If you log out of MARRIOTT.COM and notice an 80,000 point offer, it is a USA-only offer.
  • You can find List of Marriott Hotels and their Categories via below searches

  • 2017 Marriott Rewards Category/Tier Update: On March 7, 2017, 23% of our hotels and resorts will change category.

i goess to each his own. I don't redeem for small amounts at a time (like a $50 charge). If I have no further travel in my future, I'll wait until several months later to redeem the charge so as to use up as much credit as possible.

EDIT: Just confirmed that you can do partial redemptions up to 12 months after travel purchase posts. This is the wording from the Scotiabank Amex gold site when I log in to my own account :'
  1. Alternatively, you can book travel through any travel provider on your own using your Scotia Rewards Program Card, and then redeem Scotia Rewards points towards your purchase at a later time. You have up to 12 months from the travel purchase date to take advantage of this feature. To take advantage of this option, choose ‘Apply Points to Travel’ from the Redeem Now page."
What is the conversion rate if
a) buying through their travel portal
b) buying elsewhere and applying credit

Is it 1point = 1cent for both?
Are there ever any sales and/or bonuses.

No experience with the travel portal, but applying a credit (against a charge on the card, not a statement credit) results in 1 point = 1 cent.

Their website says this regarding partial points

When you book travel through the travel provider of your choice using your Scotiabank Credit Card or Debit Card that earns Scotia Rewards points, you can Apply Points to Travel towards your trip costs.4

Your Scotia Rewards points may be applied once towards each unique transaction. Partial point redemptions are not permitted.


But in our experience that did not seem true or maybe we just completely misunderstood the bolded sentence... We put 2 charges of $194 for a YYZ-SFO award flight on our Scotia AMEX. Redeemed one fully with points and redeemed the second partially with only $103 worth of points.

Downsides?
1. Took 5 months to get the points and if you contact them before that they'll just ask you to wait (in our experience) until 5 months
2. The first time I redeemed, it took nearly 2 months to actually get the credit on the statement, so I had to pay the charge first...

No advantage in buying via their travel portal.

Yes 1-1 ratio for both.

I have always booked my travel elsewhere and then applied credit. This works perfectly for scam charges with Aeroplan or Avios bookings.

In the 3 years I’ve had my Scotiabank Gold AMEX they have never offered and bonuses or sales for travel but they do if you want to redeem for gift cards and merchandise.

This is my experience as well. FYI - Just redeemed on Capital One . Had to pay the full amount of my statement for the billing period in which the charge and redemption were made. Credit for the redemption comes in the form of a credit statement in the following billing period, or alternatively you can ask for a cheque which according to the CSR takes several months to be processed.

Let’s stick to Marriott, please. This Scotia Bank off-topic discussion has gone on long enough.

Are others still waiting for the 15 nights and the certificate? Any point in calling Chase another few weeks from now?

I'm still waiting...and tired of waiting. These nights will get me gold status, so I'm annoyed that they're taking their sweet time...and not giving any solid commitment as to when we'll see them!

I am waiting to see what happens April 14 when the next (last?) regular posts drop happens. I had one transaction on 14 March in the short last billing period.

Maybe the statement will not show up and you will end up with the goods not requiring payment.
