Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card

An excellent card to get free hotel stays if you already have the personal version (no business required)


in travel rewards after $1,500 in 3 months

Our favorite card in Canada has a Business version.

Even if you don’t have a business, you are eligible by putting your full name as the business name in your application (beware: only Amex accepts this, not the other banks).

This will not only give you another Marriott welcome bonus, it will give you a 2nd very valuable annual free night certificate for very luxurious hotels.

You could get up to 8 free nights with the Welcome Bonus alone, same as with the regular Marriott Bonvoy Card.

The earn rate is also great, with a category multiplier that the regular Marriott Card doesn’t even have on gas, travel, and dining.

Offer subject to change at any time.
