New and enhanced benefits also announced for the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant American Express Card giving Card Members access to premium travel experiences
Marriott Bonvoy®, the award-winning travel program from Marriott International, announces the expansion of its U.S. cobrand credit card portfolio with the introduction of the Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card and the Marriott Bonvoy Bountiful™ Card from Chase. These new cards are designed for consumers seeking to quickly accumulate points toward free stays at more than 8,100 hotels and resorts participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program and includes an extraordinary portfolio of luxury and lifestyle properties, All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy™, and more than 70,000 premium rentals on Homes & Villas by Marriott International® around the globe.

These enhancements follow upgraded benefits introduced earlier this year for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless® Card from Chase and the Marriott Bonvoy Business® Card from American Express.
“We are experiencing a travel renaissance among our Marriott Bonvoy members. The new cards from American Express and Chase will meet the growing desire to earn points as fast as possible – whether members are staying at one of our properties, or making everyday purchases – and redeem their points toward free stays,” said David Flueck, Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty, Marriott International. “Today’s announcement tops off a year of enhancing our cobrand card portfolio to provide members a wider assortment of rich credit card options to meet their needs.”
“From weekend getaways to trips across the world, customers have told us they want to get to that next trip faster - while enhancing their travel experience along the way,” said Jon Gantman, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cobrand Product Management at American Express. “With new ways to earn points on everyday purchases, elevated Marriott Bonvoy Elite status and new ways to get to free nights faster, our Marriott Bonvoy American Express Cards can help people get the most out of the Marriott Bonvoy program.”
“No matter where or why we travel, experiencing more of the world provides fresh perspectives and has the power to be transformative,” said Khary Barnes, Managing Director and General Manager of Marriott Co-Brand Cards at Chase. “Building on the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card enhanced benefits announced earlier this year, the addition of the Marriott Bonvoy Bountiful Card to the Chase Card portfolio provides our card members with additional opportunities to unlock meaningful value and elevate their travel experiences with Marriott Bonvoy."
