Chase, Marriott launch reward card

Chase Card Services, Marriott and Visa are giving Canadian consumers more ways to reach amazing vacation destinations with just the swipe of a card. The companies launched the Marriott Rewards(R) Platinum Visa(R) Card in Canada. Cardmembers can use their card for their daily purchases and earn three Marriott Rewards points for every Canadian dollar spent at Marriott locations worldwide and earn one point per Canadian dollar for all other daily card purchases.

In addition to earning Marriott Rewards points by simply using the card, cardmembers receive 5,000 bonus points after their first card purchase. Just by becoming cardmembers, consumers will be automatically upgraded to Silver Elite membership in the Marriott Rewards program. Cardmembers can redeem points for more than 250 rewards options including free stays at more than 2,600 Marriott hotels worldwide, theme parks, cruises, airline miles, electronics and more.

“We are committed to providing valuable products and services to consumers,” said Harry DiSimone, executive vice president, Chase Card Services. “We are thrilled to extend our strong and long-standing partnership with Marriott into Canada.”

“With our tremendous membership growth in Canada and the more than 50 hotels we have in the country, this was a perfect time to provide this service to our Canadian members. The Canadian Marriott Rewards Visa Card will offer them great value,” said Ed French, senior vice president, Marriott’s customer relationship marketing.

Since 1987, Marriott and Chase have partnered together to offer a variety of payment products to U.S. consumers. This card marks Chase’s first new payment product launch in Canada and the first time the Marriott Rewards Platinum Visa is available to Canadian consumers.
