Your Marriott Credit Card Just Got a Lot More Useful At the Grocery Store

If you’re spending more money than usual on one category these days, it’s probably groceries, which is why it’s important to use the right credit card whenever you restock your fridge. Earning more points on your grocery store purchases now means you’ll be that much closer to a great vacation once it’s safe to travel again.

6X Points At Grocery Stores

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite credit cards for grocery purchases already, but some new contenders just entered the fray: the entire lineup of Marriott Bonvoy credit cards, including the no-annual-fee Marriott Bonvoy Bold Credit Card.

From May 1 to July 31, all Marriott credit cards will earn 6x Bonvoy points per dollar spent at grocery stores, no activation required. With an estimated value of .8 cents per point according to The Points Guy, that’s like getting a 4.8% return on your eligible grocery spend.

While the Chase Freedom’s limited-time 5% back is a bit more lucrative (especially when paired with an Ultimate Rewards-earning card on the same account), this is a great bonus for Marriott loyalists who want to put all of their points in the Bonvoy basket, especially when combined with the cards’ new elite night credit earning opportunities.

As a reminder, here’s a quick breakdown of all of Marriott’s consumer credit cards, all of which are eligible for this promotion:
