LIMITED-TIME OFFER. Earn 5 Free Night Awards (each valued up to 50K points) after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.
The Boundless is the next level up from the no-annual-fee Bold, and it also comes with some next-level perks despite being a card that costs under $100 a year. You’ll receive an additional Free Night Award (valued up to 35,000 points) each year on your account anniversary, and don’t forget you can “top off” your free night with up to 15,000 additional points making it worth 50,000. This card also gives you the ability to work towards Gold Elite status by spending $35,000 in a calendar year, but you’re better off earning this status by utilizing the complimentary 15 elite night credits you’ll get and by booking stays with Marriott. Additionally, you can earn an additional elite night credit for every $5,000 you spend, offering another means of getting closer to Gold.
