Any idea why the Marriott Rewards Credit Card is hella- thick?

Just curious - does anyone know why the physical card is thicker than the average card?   Also, when I use it to swipe, the card works only when you swipe really fast.   An ordinary swipe results in a misread of the mag stripe.   Anyone also encounter this strange issue when using the MR CC?
