Chase Introduces Chase Offers (Spend Rebates Like Amex Offers) for Marriott Card

I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).


Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card

There’s a great new benefit that Chase has introduced for the Marriott card, something I hope we’ll see in the future with other Chase cards. Marriott cardmembers get a head start.

In my opinion the best current bonus offer for the card is 80,000 points after $3000 in spend within the first 3 months of cardmembership. I value that at $640.

A second piece of the signup bonus comes from adding an authorized user and making a purchase within the first 3 months of cardmembership.

Every year cardholders receive a free night at a Marriott property up to category 5. That has it’s limits, you won’t stay at the bulk of top properties — although many great ones do qualify and about three quarters of Marriott’s hotels are eligible — definitely worth more than the card’s $85 annual fee.

You can transfer points to Starwood, though perhaps the best single use of points is ‘travel packages’ where you redeem for 7 nights of hotel and pair that with mileage transfers to an airline.

And now there’s a new feature of this card: Chase Offers for Marriott cardholders. This is like ‘Amex Offers’ where you spend money at a specific merchant and earn a rebate.

Doctor of Credit reports that cardmembers are receiving offers like,

  • Whole Foods: $10 back on $25+ purchase
  • Lowe’s: $10 back on $50+ purchase
  • Staples: 10% back (max $20)
  • Nordstrom: 20% back (max $30)
  • Neiman Marcus: 10% back (max $30)
  • Regal Cinemas: 10% back (max $50)
  • Ebags: $20 back on $100+
  • Gamefly: $10 statement credit for new subscribers (it’ll be interesting to see if they can actually track who is a new subscriber – that would be a different kind of tracking the typical Amex Offer tracking we’re used to)
  • Hulu: $20 statement credit with Live TV subscription

Add an offer to your card and follow the terms like buying in-store or online by the offer deadline to earn the rebate.

Note of course that “5/24” applies to this card meaning it’s only for you if you have had fewer than 5 new card accounts opened in the last 24 months.

  1. I first saw mention of this Visa Offers on another deal site this AM and honestly I thought it was a scam (for a number of reasons) but I am starting to get the feeling this is legit.

    Also note that this is being offered on other cards as the other site mention was for the Chase Slate card: https://chase.visaoffers.com/slate/

    For those who care or if Chase or Visa are reading: an astute surfer of the interwebs has been taught to be wary of sites you don’t know for certain are legit. So the first time I some person promoting https://chase.visaoffers.com/slate/ I immediatly noticed it was not at the root domain chase.com or visa.com — caution levels rise. Browse to https://chase.visaoffers.com/ and it returns a plain text 404 Error reading “404 Error – aka Page Not Found – We’re sorry, but the page you’re looking for is missing” — caution level rise. Browse to visaoffers.com and it redirects to https://www.visaoffers.com.trialpay.com/ — caution levels rise!! Browse to http://trialpay.com/ and it poses to be a legit company with a scheme where consumer gets an item for free from a participating merchant in exchange for buying or trying out another product or service from a TrialPay advertiser. So, I look around for a mention of Visa or Chase and find nothing of the sort. At this point, I emailed Visa’s fraud and scam contact. They said they were looking into it.

    The only thing that gives a sense that visaoffers.com is officially connected to Visa is the domain registration information which indicates it is registered to:

    Registrant Organization: Visa International Service Association
    Registrant Street: P.O. Box 8999, MS: M1-11A
    Registrant City: San Francisco
    Registrant State/Province: CA
    Registrant Postal Code: 94128
    Registrant Country: US

    Now that I see Gary posting about it, I am convinced it is legit but wow Visa (and Chase), help your customers learn how to spot fake sites and don’t do sloppy work like this!!

  2. Thanks, Gary. This is my first time to read about this. I understand that Whole Foods now has Amazon gift cards. Do they sell in denominations as low as $25? I value Amazon discounts far more than Whole Foods.

  3. Anyone know if these show up with the Marriott Business Card, since that is an option for those of us over 5/24?

  4. @Carol – My loca Whole Foods (SoCal) sells Amazon GCs as low as $25. I used the promo this morning and received an email from Chase confirming I had used the offer. However, I’m not counting it will post, since the Terms specifically say that GCs are not allowed, but we’ll see if that’s enforced…
    @Neil – Yes. I only have the Marriott business card. All offers showed up for me.
