Marriott Premier Visa now receiving Ritz points?

We just applied for the Marriott Premier Visa with hopes of receiving RC points (where we will be getting married) and after reading many previous posts we feared we wouldn't receive the 5x per $1 spent unless we had the actual RC Visa.

 

We haven't activated the MR card yet and called Chase to determine if this was the case. The representative - who was extremely helpful - said that as of March 6, 2013, all RC were included in the 5x per $1 spent. Only RC Destination Clubs still receive the 1x per $1 spent.

 

Of course we're going to call Chase tomorrow to see if we receive a different answer, but wanted to ask -- has anyone else heard this or received a similar response?

    This is definitely good news if true!

      Called again and it took sometime to get get an answer, but I got the same response from last night -- Beginning in March RC stays will now earn 5x points (Premiere Visa) and 3x points (Business Visa). Destination Clubs still receive 1x points.

       

      Would be great for Marriott to confirm, and others to call and ask. The Chase representative thanked me for helping her learn something new, so it seems like this hasn't trickled down yet.

        Marriott has informed me that the Canadian Premier VISA only issues 2x points per $1 spent at Ritz Carlton.

         

        I work around might be to purchase Marriott Gift Cards and use these at RC.
