Summary

I think every Canadian should have this card (and the business version of this card). It has an annual fee of $120, but comes with an Annual Free Night Award that I often redeem for over $400 or $500 in value. Combine that with high earning rates at Marriott hotels and automatic Silver Elite Status—this is a card that I'll keep forever.

Earning Rewards

  • 5X points per $1 on Marriott hotels (in addition to earning points as a member)
  • 2X points per $1 on everything else

Additional Benefits

  • Receive complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Silver status as long as you hold the card
  • Receive an annual Free Night Award worth 35,000 points every year

Foreign Transaction Fee

  • 2.5% of transaction amount in CAD

If you’re a Marriott loyalist and have a small business or side hustle (e.g. freelancing, Etsy, etc.), this is an excellent card. It has a super reasonable annual fee for the benefits you get (e.g. Gold Elite status, late check out and room upgrades when available, 15 elite night credits, and a free night award on your card's anniversary).
