After receiving my Marriott Visa, how long does it take for the initial free night to be available?
Per the Chase website, allow 6-8 weeks; if I recall correctly, I got mine in about 4.

tplyons87 Is correct, for me it was about 4 as well. One other item to note, while the cert is good for 6 months, If you call guest services they can extend it another 6 months especially if you already have a reservation during that period in which you intend to use it. I find they are very helpful.
Good question, nolefan0707, and a big thanks to tplyons87 for the detailed answer and ks77 for the additional advice. nolefan0707: do you already have a destination in mind for your free stay?
