Nobody Does Sign-Up Bonuses Like Me, Nobody!
There's a Marriott credit card offer floating around with a whopping 150,000 point sign up bonus. Well, those are the words in bold at least. When you look at the nitty-gritty details, it seems to merely be bluster, probably in reaction to the legitimately awesome 100,000 CSR sign-up bonus that's now off the table. In reality, the Marriott sign-up bonus is merely an opportunity to earn 5 Marriott points per dollar spent on the first $30,000 in purchases on the card. So, if you get this targeted offer to your inbox or mailbox, trash it!
+ View from the Wing offers a breakdown of the card offer above as well as credit cards that offer better value for spending 30,000. Spoiler alert: there's no shortage of them.
