Looking to open a Marriott credit card to get the 15 elite nights to renew status. Currently deciding between the Bold ($0 annual, 75k pts welcome bonus) and the Boundless ($95 annual, 100k pts welcome, annual free night). Likely won’t put any material spend on the card beyond first 3 months. Which should I choose?

Very straightforward:
1. Would you buy 25k points for $95 (not a terrible deal if you stay at Marriotts
2. Long term, do you stay at Marriotts around the 35k point level and pay more than $95 a night

If you think you will use the free night, Boundless is a no brainer. $95 for $35k points towards a room is good value. Rooms I use them for are always $150+ and no taxes.

The free night comes in handy and the rooms/hotels I’ve used it on have been more expensive than $95

Thanks all!

Ladies what would you do? I just received an offer for a 28% increase in base pay + a 12% annual bonus and a title bump to VP. I loved all of the people I met with aside from 1 who had major red flags. The head of the department called me to convince me to take their offer after hearing I was leaning towards no based on that interview & said she would personally be my boss. Should I keep considering their offer or should I see if my company will match? I have a great boss currently…
