Cardholders are eligible to receive a range of Marriott-specific benefits.

Upon reaching the card anniversary date, the cardholder will receive a 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 (see some of the best hotels in North America to redeem your free night certificate).
