THIS OFFER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Back in July, Chase Canada revamped their Marriott Visa card offering for Canadians with the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa. You can see my quick review of it here. Normally the card comes with a 30,000 point sign up bonus but we were quickly made aware of some 50,000 point targeted offers floating around back at the end of July. Turned out, those were targeted well and unless you had Elite Status with Marriott and were chosen to receive the offer, you could not get the 50K.
Fast forward to today and Rewards Canada Reader Dave has forwarded a new 50,000 point offer for the card that does not seem to be targeted as when you go to the landing page it states the 50,000 bonus points and can't find anywhere in the terms and conditions that it is a targeted offer (with the July offers it would automatically revert 30K unless you had the original email link). So I am led to believe that this offer should be available to anyone. If you do plan on using it, I would take screen shots of the offer page including terms and conditions prior to applying just in case Chase comes back and tries to push the 30K offer or only awards you 30K after your first purchase.
I have been contemplating this card as I need a cheaper replacement for my never used annual fee based Visa and the fact that this one has the annual fee waived in the first year makes it a good candidate. If I do go ahead with it, it will be soon to make sure I get in on the 50K before the offer is pulled and will report on the results. I encourage my readers who do apply for it with this link (I do not receive any compensation for this card) to let us know how it goes as well.
