Have a friend who has marriott premier visa card and earns 5 to 1 points for non marriott spending and 10 to 1 points for marriott spending. I have the same card but earn 1 to 1 points for non marriott spending and 5 to 1 for marriott spending. Why?

    Far as I know there is only one Premier Visa Chase benefit and that's five to one for Marriott Spending.  If anyone sees a newer deal please let us all know.

     

    My recent emails from Chase and to Chase tell me that the program is the same as it was last year,  same EQNs, same point  rewards, same free night category 1-4, same accelerator awards (spend three K, get an EQN).

    There are two cards, the black card gives the most points - it may have a higher annual fee i don't recall.  See this link.

    Labsrfun is exactly correct - there are two different cards. The black card offers the higher points but also has a higher fee. I still have both cards.

    To clarify:

     

    One, the Silver Card,  is called the Visa Signature and the other, the BlackCard is called the Premier Visa. As far as I can tell from reading the 6 point type in the terms and conditions not much has changed, other than some readjustments to the late fees, and other charges.

     

    Chase is affiliated with other hotel loyatly programs including Hyatt, according to their web site.

     

    The higher annual fee for the Black Card remains where it was last year.

    The free night you get upon approval is Cat 1-4.  The yearly anniversary free night is Cat 1-5.

    I have tha black signature card and it used to be 10 points to $1 purchase (years ago, don't remember exactly when).  Now it's 5 points

    for one dollar purchase (new since 2009-2010). Same premier card,

    reduced benefit as far as earning points.
