I have been deluged with offers for different Marriott rewards cards linked with Visa or other credit cards. Does anyone have one that they prefer? (Business vs personal, etc etc) Thanks!

    Ellie,

    There are a few ongoing threads with stuff you may find interesting.  Here's one link.

    Ellie, the Chase Premier black card offers the most choice and reward for frequent stayers but is also the most expensive.

    Ouch!  This really rubs salt in the wound!  We Brits can't even get 'one' credit card with Marriott Rewards ...

      Can you do it with a US bank account or mailing address?

        Good suggestion but we have always been refused as we don't have a US mailing address.  We have tried for both a bank account and a card account several times as we generally take an extended trip in the USA once a year.

         

        I couldn't even find a US bank that would give us a USD savings account based in the USA.  I had to go with Citi through their London office and we have problems every time we are over in the USA.  However, at least we can buy USD when they are cheap vs GBP ... ooops!
