Fees

Annual Fee

The annual fee for the Marriott Bonvoy Business Card is $125. If you're able to get good value out of the free night and use the bonus categories on this card, it can easily be worth the fee. The free night at a 35,000 point per night hotel puts you in the Category 4-5 range and features hotels that are usually more than $125 per night.

Authorized User Fee

The Marriott Bonvoy Business Card does not have an authorized user fee. You can add as many employee cards as you want and they will be able to assist in building Marriott Bonvoy Points spending in the bonus categories the Marriott Bonvoy Business Card has.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The Marriott Bonvoy Business Card does not charge a foreign transaction fee. Any spending done outside of the U.S. will usually earn the non-bonus category rate of 2x Marriott Bonvoy Points per $1 spent since all the categories are specific to U.S. transactions.
