Calculate Your Value

For those meeting the promotional spend requirement, BestCashCow calculates the value of the sign-up bonus to be $380 to $450, placing a $100 on the value of the free night in a category 1-4 hotel.

BestCashCow estimates the value of 1,000 Marriott points to be between $4 and $5.  A cardholder spending $25,000 a year, including $1,000 at Marriott hotels and $5,000 in dining or airline tickets, would receive 34,000 Marriott Rewards points annually which BestCashCow calculates the value to be between $136 and $170.   Additionally, the free anniversary night in a category 1-5 property represents value that more than covers the annual fee after the first year.
