However, it does offer an annual free night award for Marriott Bonvoy hotels that cost up to 35,000 pointsand like the Bonvoy Brilliant, it's offering an elevated welcome offer that comes with an upgrade to Platinum elite status for one year.</p><p>If you apply by January 13, you can earn 100,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first three months, and you'll be upgraded to Platinum elite status (from the card's usual Silver status) for a year starting in February.</p><bi-shortcode id="related-article-module" class="mceNonEditable" data-type="5d9386f92e22af5e68010bc3" data-title="If you're a business traveler who prefers Marriotts, the Bonvoy Business Amex is worth a look thanks to its annual free night" data-url="https://www.businessinsider.com/personal-finance/marriott-bonvoy-business-amex-card-review" data-thumbnail="https://i.insider.com/5d94f107e28ccd0e48403860" data-shortcode-display-text="Related Article Module: If you're a business traveler who prefers Marriotts, the Bonvoy Business Amex is worth a look thanks to its annual free night">&nbsp;</bi-shortcode><p>Beyond that, you can earn up to $150 in statement credits for eligible purchases on US advertising in select media, including online, radio, and TV advertising, in the first six months of card membership.</p><h2>You can use these points now or later</h2><p>If you're dreaming of a vacation but not sure when you'll actually feel ready to book, keep in mind that your Marriott points won't expire as long as you continue to use your Marriott credit card.</p><bi-shortcode id="related-article-module" class="mceNonEditable" data-type="5feb3fefdb505f190b46cfe5" data-title="How to earn, redeem, and maximize Marriott Bonvoy pointsfrom luxury resort stays to dozens of airline partners, you can't beat the flexibility" data-url="https://www.businessinsider.com/personal-finance/how-to-earn-redeem-marriott-points" data-thumbnail="https://i.insider.com/5feb42f0a6448800181939ab" data-shortcode-display-text="Related Article Module: How to earn, redeem, and maximize Marriott Bonvoy pointsfrom luxury resort stays to dozens of airline partners, you can't beat the flexibility">&nbsp;</bi-shortcode><p>That said, it could also be worth using points from one of these offers sooner than later to book a getaway near you if you live near a Marriott Bonvoy resort and you feel comfortable booking a stay during the coronavirus pandemic. With 100,000 Marriott points, you could book two nights at properties like the Westin Snowmass Resort in Colorado or the W Miami, which sits right on the beach.</p><p>In any case, remember that these welcome bonuses are only available until January 13, so you're almost out of time to apply.</p><bi-shortcode id="related-product-module" class="mceNonEditable" data-type="related-products-credit-cards" data-sheetname="Related Product Credit Cards">Related Product Module: Related Product Credit Cards</bi-shortcode><bi-shortcode id="related-content-module" class="mceNonEditable" data-type="more-credit-card-coverage" data-sheetname="More Credit Card Coverage">Related Content Module: More Credit Card Coverage</bi-shortcode><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/personal-finance/marriott-bonvoy-amex-card-limited-time-offers-2020-10#comments">Join the conversation about this story &#187;</a></p>
