Marriott has finally announced the name of its combined loyalty program. The world already knew that Marriott was bringing together Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest under one umbrella. However, Marriott kept what it was planning to name the new program a secret up until now. You probably already know about Marriott's newest global campaign if you watched this year's Academy Awards. The hotel giant used the awards show to debut the name of its new global loyalty program.

The world now knows that Bonvoy is the name of Marriott's new loyalty program. Bonvoy's 120 million members around the world make it the largest loyalty program in the hotel industry. We now also know that Marriott is replacing its Marriott Rewards Premiere Plus card with a new card called Marriott Bonvoy Boundless™ Credit Card. There are some exciting perks to go along with the new card, such as automatic Silver Elite status and a sign-up bonus offer. You will be able to access your card via the Chase mobile app and sign up for Chase-exclusive merchant discounts.
