Got an email today saying my Marriott Rewards card was being converted to the Bonvoy Premier card. I never upgraded to the Marriott Premier Plus because I valued the nights over points and wanted the 1 night/$3000 spend. I still do because I have LT Gold and I will have 9 years of Platinum Elite status and 559 night going into 2019. So I need 50 nights to get my 10 years as Platinum Elite and also go over 600 nights needed for LT Platinum. While I likely will have the 50 nights this year without the one night/$3000 credit, I wanted to keep it “just in case” so I ensure LT Platinum before retirement in a year.
In in any case I thought the $3000 spend credit would go away with the change. However if I read the website right, the credit is still there. It’s a bit confusing since it says the Bonvoy Premier is no longer available to new applicants, but since it’s a conversion I don’t think I am a new applicant. See screenshots.
So, is my logic correct or is there some fine print I have missed? If I am right I will convert to the Bonvoy Boundless card after clearing the LT Platinum hurdle in order to earn the 6x points in the future.
