Marriott Brilliant Card $300 Hotel Credit Will Change to Monthly Dining Credit

Marriott Brilliant Card Dining Credit

The premium Amex Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card has a $450 annual fee and several perks for Marriott fans. One of those perks is a $300 annual statement credit for eligible purchases at hotels and timeshare ownership properties participating in the  Marriott Bonvoy program.

This is a huge benefit that helps offset the annual fee. But starting later this year, it will change into a monthly credit and cover a different set of purchases.

Effective September 22, 2022, you will receive up to $300 in statement credits issued to your Card Account for eligible purchases charged to your Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card at restaurants worldwide. Purchases by both the Basic Card Member and Additional Card Members on an eligible Card Account are eligible for statement credits.

American Express notes that you may not receive the statement credit if the transaction was made at a restaurant within another establishment (e.g., a restaurant inside a hotel, casino, or event venue). In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet, through a third party, or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it.

The statement credit will post to your account within 8 -12 weeks after an eligible purchase, but you should normally see it within a few days.

Conclusion

Amex Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card will soon have a $300 dining credit instead of a $300 credit for for Marriott purchases. The total value remains the same, but this credit will now be monthly and applies to spend at restaurants worldwide.

The fast that it will be in the form of $25 monthly credit, makes this a hassle to use compared to the $300 lump sum. You now have yet another American Express card with monthly credits that you have to make sure to maximize.

But in the short term at least, it should be a positive change. If you recently applied for the card, or apply now, you should get the $300 Marriott credit and then starting on September 22, you can use the $25 monthly dining credit.

  1. The only reason someone would have this card is if one belongs to Bonvoy. But, knowing what we know about Bonvoy, does anyone really want to belong to it? If not, then why have the card? These are not trick questions.

  2. I will downgrade the card after this, it was borderline worth it before, with the change I don’t see the value in keeping it.
