My hubby just got approved and received his marriott rewards visa. However he does not have a Marriott rewards account. Is there a way to link his credit card to my rewards account? If so, will the points earned from dollars spent on the credit card be credited to my rewards account?
Otherwise, should I have him sign up for a Marriott rewards account? If this is the route to go, how does he link a new marriott rewards account number to his credit card?
And if Chase doesn't automagically create an MR account for SO, there is a promotion to refer a 'friend' right now--
They will likely not allow you to link the card to your account as he is the primary card holder. However, he can transfer all points he earns to you (or vice versa)
His rewards number should be printed on the back of his new Marriott credit card.
He can then navigate here Create online account in his browser in order to set up online access for his new Marriott rewards account.

If your son is not Gold or Platinum Elite, he would be charged the $10 transfer fee, but you can always contact Marriott Rewards Customer Support at 1-801-468-4000 to see if the fee could potentially be waived since your account is Platinum. Best of luck!
