  • Earn 5 Marriott Bonvoy points for every dollar spent on purchases at Marriott properties and at Marriott branded online stores (including Marriott gift card purchases).
  • Earn 3 Marriott Bonvoy points for every dollar spent on gas, dining, and travel purchases.

Bonvoy Business American Express cardholders are eligible to receive a range of hotel benefits within the Marriott Bonvoy program.

Upon reaching the card anniversary date, the cardholder will receive an annual free night award to be used at Marriott properties. This free night award, worth 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, is only awarded after you hold the card for one year, and every anniversary year thereafter. This annual free night can be redeemed at all participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels and can be topped up with up to 15,000 Bonvoy points, making the certificate worth a potential value of 50,000 Bonvoy points.

Once approved for the Marriott Bonvoy personal card, the cardholder will receive an automatic status upgrade to Marriott Silver Elite status. Unfortunately, Silver Elite status does not come with any truly notable benefits. Cardholders are eligible to be upgraded to Gold Elite status once they stay 10 nights at Marriott properties within one calendar year, or alternatively when they charge $30,000 in purchases to the card within a calendar year.

Upon approval, and again at the start of every calendar year, cardholders will receive 15 elite nights credited to their Marriott Bonvoy account. These elite nights count towards earning yearly Bonvoy status in addition to lifetime status. Stacking these nights with other cards that award elite nights can pave a fast track to Platinum Elite status.

The American Express Marriott Bonvoy Business credit card provides cardholders with eight types of insurance coverages:

  • Flight delay and baggage delay insurance
  • Hotel burglary insurance
  • Lost or stolen baggage coverage
  • Travel accident coverage
  • Rental car theft and damage insurance
  • Buyer assurance protection
  • Purchase protection
