Both the personal and business Marriott credit cards have recently increased their signup bonuses to 80k Marriott points after $3,000 in spend. This is the highest offer I’ve ever seen, though it looks like the annual fee of $99 for the business card and $85 for the personal card are NOT waived. I don’t seem to see a bonus for adding an authorized user for this offer.
Both cards earn:
5 points per $1 spent at Marriott properties
2 points per $1 spent on airline tickets purchased directly with the airline, and at car rental agencies, and restaurants. I would say these 2x categories are not worth it, go use a travel card instead.
The business card also earns 2 points per $1 spent at office supply stores, and for Internet, cable and phone services purchases. I’d rather use my Ink for these purchases, personally.
1 point per $1 anywhere else.

This is the highest points offer that I’ve ever seen. However, I’ve also seen offers for 70k points + 7.5k for adding an authorized user, with annual fee waived the first year. That’s probably a better offer than this, unless there is actually a bonus for adding authorized users for this card.
