I was wondering if there is a thread already started regarding Marriott Rewards CC Premier vs Premier Plus. Thanks.
Not that I can recall, but I'm not terribly active on here. What did you want to discuss regarding the cards? Personally, I'm keeping the Premier as long as it continues to give me 1 EQN per $3,000 spent. If that goes away, then I may upgrade it or cancel it altogether.
I have both the MR CC and MR Biz CC. Marriott keeps sending me messages about upgrading to the MR Premier Plus CC. The main holdouts for me are:
1 Elite night credit for spendingTrip cancellation/trip interruption insuranceAnnual fee change
I also haven't had a chance to review the fine print differences. So yes, the Elite Night Credit is a big reason for me to keep Premier instead of Premier Plus also. It's an important benefit. I've never used the trip insurance but having it automatically is reassuring.
I feel the exact same way. The Trip cancellation/trip interruption insurance is the big one for me. It is pretty good coverage!!!! I also agree with your other reasons. I hope they don’t get rid of it!!! Not sure what I will do if they do.
If you need the Elite Night credit to make status then keep the old card for as long as you can get that. It was very valuable for me to get me to Platinum each year and helped me to get to Lifetime Platinum. If that is not a consideration, then the new card is better because of the extra points. In three months, including one with very heavy spending on the new card, I've picked up almost 30,000 more points than with the old one.
Try some of these:

There are a few more, but these will probably give you a good review.
