** 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

    http://www.marriott.com/hotel-search.mi
  • 2017 Marriott Rewards Category/Tier Update: On March 7, 2017, 23% of our hotels and resorts will change category.

Best to use an Aeroplan Visa for the travel insurance coverage when flying on an Aeroplan redemption ticket.
Yes, I also applied for a HSBC Premier World Elite MC to replace my Marriott Visa. I think the features are pretty good for a "free" card if one is a HSBC Premier customer. Even if not, after deducting the $100 travel credit at $49 is still pretty attractive.
The upcoming changes to the Rogers MC are great disappointment. I probably shall not be using that card very much post May 2018.

I was planning to buy a season ski pass which is not refundable anyway. But in any case they said you can get credits after March 15.

Looks great but 139$ AF is quite expensive. It's ok for the first year if you get the 25k bonus but after you have to use it a lot to make it attractive. What was good with the Marriott Visa was the free night which in general was offsetting the annual fee.

If anyone is thinking of applying for the new Scotiabank Passport Visa with no FX fees. Wait until April 3rd when the application link will go live with GCR.

So I did some math, this card is absolutely useless in Canada (as far as I am concerned at least, since I have a 2 points on everything with Capital One), so we are looking only at US / international purchase. You have to spend 5500$ in a year outside Canada to offset the AF. While it may be interesting for people who spend a lot outside the country not sure I will take it as a third card in my wallet. Especially when I will use a SPG Amex for everything in Marriott / Starwood hotel (in which case the 2 points per C$ worth it even with forex fees).

Not sure if the answer to this is buried in this thread as it all seems to be about other cc’s now, but when is the free night cert from the now-canceled Mariott card supposed to post to ones account? Has anyone received it yet?
