And be sure to compare and check out our other post about the Aeroplan Reserve Card, and Business Reserve Cards because they also saw welcome bonus increases as well!
Let’s take a look at the good news and see how good of a deal the new welcome bonus terms are:
Amex Marriott Bonvoy Card Canada Increased Welcome Bonus
The welcome bonus on the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Card Canada jumped up to 75,000 points today. The previous offer was 50,000 back in November, 2022.
This offer will expire July 24, 2023, so if you’re looking to apply now instead, you’ll earn an extra 25,000 points!
This is certainly the top tier offer we’ve seen on this Card in the last two years which makes it a great time to get this Card.
Here’s how the welcome bonus breaks down:
- New Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Cardmembers: Earn 65,000 Welcome Bonus points after you charge $3,000 in net purchases to your Card in your first 3 months of Cardmembership.
- Plus earn an additional 10,000 points when you make a purchase between 14 and 17 months of Cardmembership. Offer ends July 24, 2023.
Keep in mind to turn the additional 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy points you’ll need to renew the annual fee on the Card. If you’re planning on keeping the Card, consider these bonus points, however, it’s not generally worth the annual fee alone just to get those points. You’d be better off applying for another Amex Card, such as the Business Bonvoy Card in your second year to earn the maximum welcome points on that Card instead.
Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business Card Canada Increased Welcome Bonus
The Bonvoy Business Card also saw an increased welcome bonus offer, jumping from 50,000 to 85,000 Bonvoy points! The last time we saw an offer this good on this Card was in September, 2021, so this Card was definitely due for an update.
Like the other Card offers we saw today, this one will expire on July 24, 2023, and when it does, it will likely be slashed back down to around 50,000 points, so take advantage of this offer while you can and apply today!
How to Use Marriott Bonvoy Points
Last year Marriott Bonvoy eliminated its fixed points/category system for hotel stays. Now hotels are priced dynamically depending on the date and location of your stay.
75,000 Bonvoy points is enough for a one-night stay at a 5-star luxury hotel in New York, like the Times Square EDITION.
Or make your points last longer and use them at a Courtyard, Sheraton, or Four Points hotel for a couple of nights. For the annual fee on both these Cards, you’ll end up paying way less for your hotel stay by applying and using points instead!
