The standard offer for a while now has been the 75,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for $3,000 in spend.bonvoy business

Via the cardmember referral channel, the bonus on the Marriott Bonvoy Business card is now 100,000 Bonvoy points, though with $5,000 in required spend.

Keep in mind that if you do refer a friend, Amex is likely going to send a 1099 for the referral – I believe it was at 1 cent a point last year. You can get 20,000 points for the referral while your friend gets the 100,000 offer.

💳 If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

The offer is also available direct on the Marriott website. If you need a referral, you can use mine here.

As a reminder, this card earns 6x on Marriott stays, 4x on U.S. gas stations, on wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers and on U.S. purchases for shipping, and 2X on everything else with a $125 annual fee. You’ll get an annual free night certificate good on a night of up to 35,000 Bonvoy points.
