Now that we are all adults (scary but true 😉 ) it is important to know what you can get when you travel with the right credit card. It’s not just enough to have a fun time. We gotta be responsible with how we plan our trips so we can get the most bang for our buck! Last weekend I took my two girlfriends for a little getaway at the JW Marriott L.A. Live. If you use the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card from Chase at Marriott properties like this one, you can earn rewards points on all purchases – including five points for every $1 spent. You can do this at more than 5,700 Marriott or Starwood locations worldwide – so you can accumulate free night stays faster. Whether you’re spending $ on tons of room service and spa treatments like we did or using it for your everyday expenses, the benefits are amazing!
Also, if you are a cardmember and refer a friend to sign up for the card here, you will have the opportunity to earn up to 10,000 bonus points for the referral and even more bonus points for you!
