Having both a Ritz Carlton and Marriott Premier Card?

Postby nismoZtuner » Sat Jul 04, 2015 1:30 pm

Does anyone have both the Ritz and Premier Marriott card?

A few months back I read that one can only have either a Ritz or a Marriott account(NOT both)- but yesterday after looking at the Ritz card I read that some guy had one Marriott Rewards account number for both the regular Marriott account but also had the same number for the Ritz account.

I have been considering on getting the Ritz card but haven`t because I already have the Marriott Premier card and supposedly I can only have 1 not both..

Regarding the Ritz and status...more out of curiosity than practical application...

If you spend $10k in the first year, I know you keep Gold status. Do you also get 50 nights towards lifetime status?

Likewise, if you spend over $75k, you get Platinum status - but what about any lifetime nights?

Or would someone spending a lot on the card be more likely to qualify through points, rather than nights, anyway?

They're basically the same program. I don't have either card but I have a Marriott Rewards account and can redeem points for Marriott or Ritz properties. If you want both cards you'll have to link them to a single rewards account with one or the other.
