Yesterday was the last day of school for my kids. It’s now the start of the summer vacation for them. I still have to work, but I’ll eventually take some time off and go on a real vacation. I might even take the kids with me. One of my favorite hotels is the Marriot. My wife and I love staying there. That’s why I’m happy to learn about the Chase Marriott Rewards program. You can get one free night at their hotel when you join their program, and earn points for additional free nights when you stay at their hotels: JW Marriott, EDITION, Autograph Collection, Renaissance Hotels, AC Hotels by Marriott, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Courtyard, SpringHill Suites, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites, and Gaylord Hotels.
Check out the video below. It’s a video created for my dad blog and is hosted by Dhani Jones. He’s a travel expert and former NFL Linebacker. In his video, Dhani talks about how you can save on summer travel.
Here’s some info from the Chase Marriott Rewards video:
Millennials, the generation of techies currently in their twenties and early thirties, are reshaping the way of travel. According to a survey commissioned by Chase Card Services, millennials are twice as likely to prefer Elite status as a benefit from their travel rewards program, compared to older travelers. And, when traveling for business, four in five millennial travelers are likely to extend their trips to include a personal vacation. If you’re a millennial traveler looking for ways to enjoy more benefits while traveling, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and travel enthusiast, Dhani Jones suggests using a card like Marriott Rewards Credit Card from Chase when you’re traveling. It rewards you with 5 points for every dollar you spend at any Marriott location and earns you 15 Elite status points each year. That way, you can accrue points faster to put towards your personal travel and enjoy more exclusive perks.
