Regarding the new Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card from Chase. When I inquired, Chase told me that I could close my current Chase Rewards card and immediately apply for the new Premier Plus card, with a 100,000 bonus point sign up. After having applied twice, with two declinations, I am more than annoyed. With excellent credit ratings, the only reason is that "I have formerly been a card holder." Great, but I have now closed that card. Chase's customer resolution team has been absolutely no help. This particular card is one that I use not only at Marriott's, but with car rentals due to it's very good insurance coverage. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice as to how I can get Chase to provide me with the new card (and the bonus sign up would be nice, too.) Had I not received the information from Chase when I first called back in early June, I would not have persued this, and would have simply upgraded my card with the offered 20,000 points offered for an upgrade. Now I have no card with Marriott. Annoyed!
