The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card is worth it for people who spend at least $3,000 within 3 months of opening an account and earn the Bonvoy Boundless card’s initial bonus of 100,000 points. That bonus is worth much more than the card’s $95 annual fee. The Marriott Boundless card also is worth it for frequent travelers who spend at least $1,800 per year on Marriott reservations, which would net enough rewards to cover the annual fee. Or, you just need to spend about $1,500 per year if you count the free night (worth up to 35,000 points) that you get after each account anniversary.
The big welcome bonus for the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless card is great for frequent flyers, too. You can transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to most Marriott partner airlines - including Southwest, American Airlines, Delta, and more - at a ratio of 3 points to 1 mile. And for every 60,000 points you transfer to airline miles, Bonvoy throws in an extra 5,000 miles as a bonus.
Finally, the Bonvoy Boundless card is worth getting for people who want to earn “elite” status in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program. The card gives automatic Silver Elite status just for having the card, plus a path to Gold Elite status (spending at least $35,000 on the card annually). Without the help of Marriott Bonvoy Boundless, you would need to stay 10 nights at Marriott hotels every year to earn Silver Elite status, and 25 nights per year for Gold Elite status. Among other benefits, Silver Elite status gives 10% bonus points on Marriott stays.
