Credit card referral bonus

December 1st, 2019 at 09:12 pm

A few weeks back, someone on the forums mentioned looking at new credit cards. I suggested the one we have and they ended up signing up for it with my referral link so we got 20,000 bonus points. It's a Marriott card so that's at least 1 free night and maybe more depending on the hotel.

We scored a ton of Marriott points last month between travel, spending, a promotion they were having, and that bonus. All together in one month we earned just over 64,000 points. A typical hotel stay for us is 15,000 points so we earned more than 4 free nights last month alone. We are using points for one night in NYC in a couple of weeks but we really need to plan some other times to use points as we now have over 500,000 on our account.

    You can donate to the American Red Cross via Marriott Rewards points. There are other charities to donate to as well, but just thought of the Red Cross given your occupation. Just an idea!

    Thanks for the suggestion on donating points. We’ve actually donated points a couple of times to our synagogue when we had our scholar in residence programs to cover the hotel for the visiting guest.
