I received an email stating that if I refer friends to sign up for the Chase Marriott credit card, I would receive 10k points for each approved referral and my friend would receive the 50k points offer.
Well I say if you are a true friend, don’t use your own link. Instead, point them to this link which will offer them 70,000 points after they spend 1,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. They will also get a free night certificate at a Cat 1-4 property after 1st purchase and a Cat 1-5 free night certificate annually. The card has no foreign transactions fees, chip and signature technology, and the $85 annual fee is waived the first year. You also get 15 elite credit every year if you are going for status. This is clearly a way better offer than the one I received in my email.
So be a true friend and point them to the better offer. For those interested in where you can use your free night certificate, here is a list of Cat 5 hotels for starters.
