** 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.

  • Free night stay e-certificate Category 1-4 hotels upon approval for first-time Cardmembers - is NO LONGER OFFERED, as of October 1st, 2016


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.

Canadian Offer - Marriott® Rewards Premier Visa Card

Did a quick search and didn't see anything posted. Looks like an exclusive offer for us Canadians.

https://www.marriottpremier.ca/

Fairly good offer imo, especially with annual fee waived for first year.

The US folks would tell you a few things:

1) Hold out for a bigger bonus offer.
2) We know that there are not too many CAD cards with no foreign transaction fees.
3) You could get a little upset because with the CAD so close to par with USD, why the annual fee is that much higher (unless bad things are in store for the USD card).

You get a CHIP. Woo hoo! (I know, standard for the territory there..)

Been waiting for 4 years with the Cdn Plat Marriott Visa to finally catch up to the US Chase Marriott Visa benefits. Finally has. Chase annual fee in US is $85. Cdn card is $120 but they are waiving the fee for the first year. US card is giving 70,000 MR points but it could take a year or two for the Cdn one to catch up or it may never be offered.

I'm not familiar with the Marriott chain, usually staying at Fairmont or Starwood properties. I know that the annual fee is waived for the current offer, but would the 30000 bonus points be worth the $120 annual fee?

Great new card... since we don't have much of a selection of hotel branded credit cards in Canada. Already approved and on the way in the mail.

Hi,
I got a targeted e-mail giving 50,000 points and the rest of the stuff the same. I think that now it is that high I might just get it. I had been holding out for years.

Anyone else receive the targeted email with the 50K signup bonus? Was going to apply but might hold out and see they send out any more offers via email.

Was the offer sent from Chase or from Marriott Rewards?

same folks, so now that you have their phone #, you can easily give them a call and ask about the 50k offer, just like those south of you who routinely saw the 50k offer and asked about the 70k offer.........

I called in a couple of times before I was connected to someone I could ask a few questions about this card and the offer.

It sounds like they have a specific offer for each individual and when you apply you will get whatever they offered to you (whether it's the 30K or 50K bonus).

I asked about applying online and they said to be sure to enter the promo code from the email while applying online. This promo code is again apparently unique in each different email.

That leaves me wondering if I was sent an email and I never received it or if perhaps I was simply never sent an offer.

I was also left with the impression that even if you asked for the 50K promo the person on the other end of the phone had no clue if you were going to receive it or not.

It might be worth calling back another time to see if I can get any further clarification.
