    Wondering about 'authorized user'. My wife is the primary on our current MR Chase Visa, with me as a secondary authorized user. She got an email for only the 10k MR pts bonus to upgrade, which is disappointing. If I apply, will they allow me to get the 100k bonus even though I am a secondary authorized user on her card? Note: Her card is actually linked to my MR number :) .

    We are in the same situation and looking to get the new card with DW as the primary and not as an authorized user on our current 'old' card. To be safe, we are going to drop her as an authorized user, wait 30 days, then have her apply for the 'new' card.

    We were in the same situation where I was an authorized user, except I have my own MR number. Last month my wife cancelled her card, and 5 days later I applied and was approved. I noticed 100,000 MR points credit on my visa statement already since we met the $5,000 spend.

    At the end of May, my wife applied and was approved through the MR referral bonus promotion link, and we are waiting for the card. I still have to verify that she can get the 100k bonus, and I can get the 20,000 referral bonus.

    This is probably slightly off topic but I didn’t know if I should start a new thread for what is probably a simple question-

    How do you know where you stand with Marriott rewards status?

    When I log in I see the account overview of how many points I have currently, how many nights I have currently and how many nights I have life time.
    Is there a way to see how many points I have earned lifetime?
    Or am I wrong in thinking the criteria for lifetime status (ie- gold is 500 nights and 1.6 million points) is a cumulative for both nights and points?
    You are all discussing how many more of each you need to achieve your status so sounds like you know where you stand.
    Thanks!

    For us, the points are worth more than the nights. Neither of us is close to any lifetime status, so we don't covet more nights right now. Our stays in hotel properties are also fairly limited, so having status is nice, but we get little value out of it. The points are currency that we can use for travel. So the 2X points per dollar spend is a big lift over the existing card that is only 1 point per dollar on regular spending.

    Log into your MR account first. They have removed the lifetime points from the previous menu, but you can still get there.

    Go to this page:

    Click on the blue word NIGHTS. There you go!

    First let me say that there are many that know much more about the CC game than I do. As I understand it, if she is the owner and you are just an authorized used (rather than a cosigner), you run the risk of having that link broken at some point and it's possible they could take back the points or cancel the account completely as I understand the agreement. Not likely though, if they realize they have them linked incorrectly, they will likely just unlink them and she'd have to get a new MR account and #. As for the bonus of 100K, others can likely speak to this better than I. If you don't fall outside the 5/24 rule (5 new cards in 24 months) it really shouldn't matter and you should qualify. That was the issue with the "authorized user" issue.

    With the linked reward accounts for MR, SPG, etc; you likely need to work on this anyway. You can only have one reward # on your MVC account at a time but you can change it if you want even back and forth. The do the upgrade of status once a year, usually Jan/Feb but that could change with the other changes. I'd likely get the new card if your thinking about it anyway, put your number on it and get her # on the other card. The names also have to match the names on the Airlines account if you plan to use packages or miles, which was an issue for us as we both go by our middle name.

    In my opinion, yes. I think Chase will look at your credit history if you apply for a new credit account. If you have been approved for fewer than 5 new credit card accounts in the past 24 months (accounts where you are an authorized user do count), and of course if you have good credit and sufficient income to support your application, you would have a good chance of approval. Don't be discouraged if you get an "application pending" message if you apply online - that's a pretty standard message.

    If you have more than 5 new credit cards in the past 24 months, I doubt that you would be approved. In that situation, if you really want a MR Chase credit card, you'd have to sit back and wait until some of those older approvals are more than 24 months ago.

    I don't see a good reason to use your MR number on your wife's Marriott credit card (unless you are earning an enormous number of MR points each year from the card). In the past, it was easy to transfer up to 50K Marriott points between spouses each year. I don't recall seeing information about spouse to spouse points transfer under the new Marriott program that will go into effect on August 1, but I would guess that it will likely continue.

    But Marriott Vacation Club is no longer Marriott. What published assurance have you seen that tells us what you say will continue to be true...for either card? I have not been able to find any. Again, pointer please.

    MVCI separated from Marriott hotels for several years already. MVCI pays license fees to Marriott hotel business. Nothing changes.

    Got a snail mail card offering 10k points for upgrading to new card. I am chasing nights until 12.31.18 to get to 750 so I won't considering upgrading until I am clearly going to make the 750 nights.

    Is this opinion? Or do you speak with authority? (Where can we find this writing? I have not been able to find a definition for what a "participating" Marriott Hotel is.)

    Because nothing is mentioned one way or the other, nothing should change.

    How long is it taking for those who applied or upgraded to new card to get physical card in mail? DH applied 9 business days ago for Premiere plus and no card yet.

    Called Chase and rep said our cards were just mailed out, and delay was because they had run out of plastic & metal card stock due to high card demand. Huh? This is the same reason given last year for the Chase Sapphire Reserve cards. Didn't they learn? Or just a pat answer? We already have an automatic $95 charge on our account for card annual fee.

    We just removed DW as an authorized user on our 'old' Marriott CC account. I specifically asked the CSR whether we should allow a 30 day 'cooling-off' period before DW applies for the 'new' Marriott card for herself. The CSR told me we should do that because the software that processes the applications will not differentiate between her being an authorized user versus the primary account holder on our 'old' account. If she applies before the 30 days pass, there is a risk of being denied the 100k signing bonus based on her having been on our 'old' account (even as an authorized user). YMMV.

    My husband is an authorized user on my current Marriott CC account. He also had his own card that I cancelled last week with the intent to apply for the new card. I did not take him off my account as an authorized user. Today, he applied for the new card and was approved instantly. No issues at all. So, not sure if your wife being an authorized user on the old account would have mattered even though the CSR said you should wait.

    Also, this offer expires July 5th so not sure how long I would wait since the 100,000 point bonus could disappear after that.

    I did ask about an expiration for the current promotion. She said they had not been given a hard end date and would get at least 30 days notice when a hard deadline will be. I will check back at the end of the month to ensure that is still true. If I get a different answer, DW can go ahead and apply. We're not in any rush, other than to ensure we don't miss the 100k bonus for her MR account.

    kds4, I'm glad you checked on the expiration for the current promotion. I noted the July 5th expiration date because that is what was in print in the advertisement that came up on the Marriott website. It's gone from there now so maybe they are extending it past then.

    I am thinking of waiting to get that card until our Marriott fees are due. It's good that Chase will know an end date to the offer.

    I still don't know how I can use those points to my advantage. I don't stay in hotels, except occasionally on the coast, generally on our way to/from Maui or Kauai.

    How long does it take for the MR points to post ? I have received the new card and verified it, but have not yet used it. Was there any required spend after upgrading ? I honestly do not remember.

    If you upgraded, one purchase with the new card.

    They may also not post until a full statement run. DW should be getting her card in the mail in the next few days. Though the number doesn't change and we have been using the existing plastic. I suspect we have already met the required transaction in order to qualify for the bonus.

    Online on their website, it says $5k in purchase in first 3 months to receive the 100k MR Pts. Perhaps that's not required for the 10k MR Pts incentive for upgrades from the prior card?

    The requirement varies depending on what you did. If you applied for a new card, the new card requires $5K in purchases. If you upgraded the card, it only requires a single purchase. @Jeffrey mentioned "upgrading", so that is the info I provided, but he could have meant getting a new card also.
