Review the benefits of the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card and calculate how many Marriott Bonvoy Points you can earn based on your spend.


The Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card is a Marriott Bonvoy Point earning card offered by Chase Bank. As of February 13th, this Chase card was closed to new applicants making the Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX Card the go to business card for Marriott. The Chase Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card closely mirrors the AMEX version with the exception of a few small changes in bonus categories. It comes with the same Marriott Elite Status, 15 nights toward achieving higher elite status, a free annual night, and more.

Bonus Categories

The Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card features seven bonus categories that earn extra Marriott Bonvoy Points. These bonus categories consist of Marriott, gas station, restaurants, shipping, internet services, phone services, and cable services. There is no limit to the amount of bonus points you can earn spending in these categories and there is no limit to the amount of points you can earn with the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card in general. Below are the details on these seven bonus categories.

6x Marriott Properties

The Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card earns 6 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent at Marriott properties. This bonus can be earned paying for hotel stays and making on-site purchases that are categorized as being Marriott (such as a Marriott owned coffee shop or general store).

Besides the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Bold, all of the Marriott Credit Cards earn 6 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent which is highest amount of points you can earn between Marriott and transfer partner credit cards.

4x Gas Station

Gas station purchases on the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card will earn you 4 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent. This will consist of merchants that sell automotive gasoline that can be paid for either at the pump or inside the station, and may or may not sell other goods or services at their location.

This is another great way to build up your Marriott Bonvoy Points on everyday purchases.

4x Shipping

The Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card earns 4 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent on shipping purchases. Chase considers shipping as merchants that specialize in mailing packages, hauling freight, and transporting goods or documents. That includes shipping merchants such as:

  • Express Shipping Services
  • Mailbox Stores

If you spend heavy in the shipping category the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card and the Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX Card offer the highest amount of Marriott Bonvoy Points you can earn in this category and it's a great way to increase your balance.

4x Internet

Internet services purchased with the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card will net you 4 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent. These purchases must be categorized as internet service providers.

This is the only Marriott Bonvoy Point earning card that earns on Internet spend.

You will earn 4 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent on the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card for phone services. These purchases can fall under radio, cellular, wireless data, and landline services. The Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX Card earns points specifically for wireless telephone services which gives this card a slight advantage. Alternatively, you can earn 5x Marriott Bonvoy Points with the Chase Ink Business Cash Card with the same method covered in the Internet category above.

4x Cable

Cable services purchased with the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card will earn you 4 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent. These purchases fall under the subcategories of both cable services and satellite television. The Marriott Business Card is the only card that earns Marriott Bonvoy Points for this category. Again, the only way to achieve a higher rate is with the Chase Ink Business Cash Card.

2x Non-Category

Any purchases on the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Plus Business Card outside of the categories listed above will earn 2 Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent. This is the highest amount of Marriott Bonvoy Points you can earn on non-category spend between Marriott and transfer partner credit cards. If you're looking to build your Bonvoy Points, running non-category spend through the card is the best route to take.
