Good morning everyone. A few days ago, Doctor of Credit reported that you could upgrade your Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card to the new Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card. There were upgrade offers between 0 Marriott Rewards Points and up to 50,000 Marriott Rewards Points. I was offered 20,000 Marriott Rewards Points to upgrade and I accepted the upgrade offer.
I made sure to take screenshots before and after accepting the offer, just in case. Turns out, that was a really smart move because when I called Chase this morning to verify the upgrade details, I was told that my account only had an offer for 10,000 Marriott Rewards Points. I sent these screenshots into Chase via Secure Message (SM) and am waiting for a response. While that happens, I will show you the welcome letter, card art, and compare the new card design to the previous card design.
I tried calling Chase to have them expedite the new Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card, but was told they could not expedite this credit card. A few days after accepting the upgrade offer, I received this email on May 9 that my new credit card was shipped.
A few days later, my new credit card arrived in the mail. Here is the 1 page welcome letter for my upgraded Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card. Credit card perks and details all look correct. The only reason I upgraded was to pay an extra $10/year and get a free night certificate at higher end hotels.
Here is the front and back of the new Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card. Make no mistake, this credit card has “Premier Plus” on the front with just your name. On the back of the credit card, you have the credit card number and Marriott Rewards number. I find it kind of funny that my name is on the front and back of the credit card,
I don’t think any other Chase credit card does that. Actually, the Chase Sapphire Reserve has my name on the front and back of the credit card.
In contrast, here is the front and back of the old Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card. The credit card number is on the front of the card, but the Marriott Rewards number is on the back of the credit card. Both cards feel and weigh the same.
Lastly, here is a family photo of 3 Marriott credit cards. Chase Marriott Rewards Business on the left, Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Plus in the middle, and Chase Marriott Rewards Premier on the right. All 3 credit cards look and feel very similar.
If you have any questions about the old or new Marriott credit card, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
