Review: Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card [150k Marriott Bonvoy Bonus Points + 1 Free Night 85K Award OR 75k Marriott Bonvoy Bonus Points + $200 Statement Credits at U.S. Restaurants]


UPDATES: 
  • There are two welcome offers for the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Card:
    • 150k bonus points + 1 Free Night Award 85K, or 
    • 75k Marriott Bonvoy Bonus Points + $200 Statement Credits at U.S. Restaurants.
  • Personally, I think the first offer is better, but it requires higher minimum spending.

    • Receive One Free Night Award Certificate that is valid at a property with a redemption level of up to 50,000 Marriott points every year after your cardmember anniversary.
    • $300 Marriott statement credit per card membership year. The room rate is also covered.
    • $100 on-property credit for a 2-night minimum stay at The Ritz-Carlton or St. Regis.
    • $100 statement credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck application fee. 
    • Receive 15 Elite Night Credits each calendar year towards the next tier status. Please note that, if you have more than one Marriott personal credit card, you can only receive at most 15 elite nights credit per year. You can receive additional 15 elite night credits if you also have a Marriott business credit card, a total of 30 elite night credits each year.
    • Complimentary Priority Pass Select airport lounge card for the primary cardholder and 2 guests free of charge. 
    • No foreign transaction fees.

    Annual Fee

    • $450 annual fee, not waived for the first year. However, above mentioned benefits such as a $300 Marriott statement credit and an annual free night award certificate alone can justify this high annual fee.

    •  None

    Upgrade Option

    • None
