The bonus opportunity provides value to Marriott credit card holders at a time when many people are not traveling.

So if you’re not traveling, but you’re cooking at home while sheltering in place, you can now earn up to 30,000 bonus points through grocery shopping.
Chase Marriott Credit Cards
The short term promotion runs May 1 through July 31, 2020 with a maximum bonus earn of 30,000 points. Which is $5000 in spending. No enrollment or activation is necessary. This promotion is ONLY good for Chase Marriott credit cards. American Express Marriott cards offer a different promotion.
From the T&C: For Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™, Marriott Bonvoy™ Premier Plus Business, and The Ritz-Carlton™ Credit Cardmembers, that’s 4 Points on top of the 2 Points you already earn on grocery purchases with your Card. For Marriott Bonvoy Bold™, Marriott Bonvoy™, Marriott Bonvoy™ Premier, and Marriott Bonvoy Business™ Credit Cardmembers, that’s 5 Points on top of the 1 Point you already earn on grocery purchases with your Card. What is great about this promotion is that even business cards are included.
American Express Marriott Credit Cards
American Express is offering a slightly different bonus for grocery stores. Amex will actually allow more points to be earned, up to 45,000 points total. Dates are also May – July 2020.

Credit Card issuers are doing everything they can to stay relevant. American Express is even offering wireless and streaming credits on some cards.
