Maybe not, but you can transfer the points to other programs to top off your balance.

According to Chase you can not transfer any points to anything but Marriott. You can transfer UR points to Marriott but not Marriott to anything else.

That's not what I was implying. Should have said: You can transfer your MARRIOTT points to other programs.

According to Chase you can not. So I don't understand where you link goes too. Looks like you can transfer other points to frequent flyer miles. I will sign up for this card anyway .

I don't know where my link went. It disappeared.

I was linking to a page on the Marriott rewards site that outlines the point transfer options for airlines. Not sure why Chase is telling you otherwise. Sound to me like there was some confusion when you talked to a rep or they just are plain wrong. It happens.

Sorry for the confusion. I don't mean to transfer the Marriott Rewards to UR points, I just meant the redemption isn't as good with the Marriott Rewards so CSP is still my go to card in regard to the question if I preferred this card over the CSP. This card only gets used booking a hotel with Marriott because I will get around 3%-4% or so based on the 5x points. This card is more than worth it for the 1 free night a year and the sign up bonus but I wouldn't use it as my main card.

I'm SOOOOOO interested in this card. My family and I stay in hotels at least three times a year and usually for two nights a pop. If I'm reading all this right am i to understand that I'd get one free night right from the start and enough sign up points (bonus points) to pay for multiple stays in addition to the initial free stay? And then after the first year at get at least one free night minus whatever points I rack up to cover the others? Sounds too go to be true.

Haha, yep. I actually find hotel credit cards to be more rewarding than airline ones. Especially since hotels can often be the priciest expense on a trip! Almost all hotel cards offer a free night each year at their low to mid-tier locations. So the annual fee pays for itself with that perk. Be sure to do your research on where you tend to travel and the chains available. Marriott's sign-up bonus is pretty lucrative but there are other options too.
