GigaTake:

The main reason to have this card is the 15 Elite Night credits you receive a year. That’s probably worth it given that there’s no annual fee. But since Marriott points aren’t very valuable, you’re better off using another card for regular spending.

GigaPoints has partnered with CardRatings for our coverage of credit card products. GigaPoints and CardRatings may receive a commission from card issuers. However, opinions, reviews, analyses & recommendations are GigaPoints’ alone, and have not been reviewed, endorsed or approved by any of these entities. Read more here.
