Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card

by : Richard Gilliland

If you love traveling and want a credit card that will support you to earn fly miles, then the Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card can be just the credit card for you. The card will definitely benefit you if you stay at the Marriott hotels more than often; the only precondition is that you will need a good credit rating.

The Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card offers a reasonable introductory annual percentage rate (APR) on balance transfers as well as purchases. You can easily earn points for great vacations and other entertainment and travel packages. There is no pre-set spending limit.

Benefits Of The Card

Each and every purchase you make with the Marriott Rewards® Visa Signature® Card permits you to earn points for airline miles, merchandise and lovely vacations. As a cardholder, you will also enjoy all the facilities and privileges that come with the Marriott Rewards Automatic Silver Level Elite Membership.

You gain one point for making a general purchase with the card and you get three points for the purchases you make at the Marriott-locations. The nine Marriott brands include Fairfield Inn by Marriott, Marriott Conference Centers, Renaissance Hotels, Resorts and Suites, Marriott Hotels Resorts and Suites, Residence Inn by Marriott, Courtyard by Marriott, TownePlace Suites by Marriott, SpringHill Suites by Marriott, and Marriott Vacation Club International.

There is no limit to the number of points you can earn and your points never expire. Your first purchase with the card brings you 15000 bonus points. As soon as you open your account, you are rewarded with a free night's stay certificate.

Other Benefits

The annual fee of $30 is quite low and even that is not claimed in the first year. The interest rate for balance transfers and purchases is above the average, but the 0% introductory APR enables you make savings in the initial six billing cycles. (However, if you plan to carry a revolving balance, this is not the card for you).

The platinum card benefits on the offer include auto rental insurance, lost luggage insurance and travel accident insurance. Go for the Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card only if you can make full payments each month and stay frequently at the Marriott hotels.

Equipped with the card, you will be spending 30% less for earning a 7-night award vacation. You also have the option of choosing from a range of vacations that includes on-site golf retreats, beach resorts, 5-star city hotspots and spas.


The card also provides exclusive signature level benefits like the 24-hour concierge service, emergency card and cash replacement, a maximum of $3000 lost luggage insurance and more benefits.

The Marriott Rewards Visa Signature Card further provides the cardholder different Internet account related services, a financial statement at the end of the year, purchase protection, no liability for the unauthorized transactions, lost as well as stolen card benefits and other facilities.

Take care to understand the restrictions, exclusions and limitations that are applicable. Before opening an account, it is advisable to refer to the Guide to Benefits for detailed information.
