Pros and cons

Pros
  • High rewards rate

  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • Has annual fee

If you find yourself frequenting Marriott hotel properties while away on business, consider getting the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card.

Its annual free night award alone can quickly recoup the annual fee of $125. Then you can start racking up spending rewards with practical bonus rewards categories. Points can be redeemed at literally thousands of Marriott properties.

But like any co-branded card, its flexibility is largely confined to Marriott and its point-transfer partners. General travel credit cards, on the other hand, allow you to accumulate and spend rewards on a wide range of travel.

Still, if you prefer Marriott properties — or could grow to love them — this card gives you plenty of reasons to continue frequenting the mega-chain.
