As the summer travel season winds to a close, Chase is raising the welcome offers on its Marriott Bonvoy cards—and the new offers are some of the highest we’ve seen yet. Starting Wednesday, new cardholders can snag elevated sign-up bonuses for The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card and The Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card, with the potential to earn 60,000 to 175,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, respectively.

But those interested in boosting their Bonvoy balances will have to act quickly to take advantage of the new offers: They’ll run for a limited time, expiring on November 3.

The Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card

New Marriott Bonvoy Boundless cardholders can score 125,000 bonus points and one free night certificate worth up to 50,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first three months from account opening. That’s a combined total of 175,000 points if you can maximize the free night certificate, giving you enough for a three-night stay at standard rates at a Category 6 property such as the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island—with 25,000 points to spare. Alternatively, you can save the certificate and use your 125,000 points for six nights at standard rates at a Category 4 hotel such as the W Bangkok, making use of Marriott’s fifth night free policy on award stays.

The card carries a $95 annual fee, but it also comes with a free anniversary night worth up to 35,000 points, so if you can put that to good use, you’ll easily get your money’s worth. On top of the annual free night, with the Boundless you’ll also get six Bonvoy points per dollar spent on Marriott purchases and two points per dollar on everything else, making it easier to rack up points for your next award stay.

Of course, the Boundless is a great card for Marriott loyalists, but it’s also valuable for travelers who just stay in at least one Marriott hotel per year. It packs a selection of Marriott-specific perks—including Silver elite status and free premium Wi-Fi at Marriott properties—plus more general travel benefits, like baggage delay insurance of up to $100 per day for five days, lost luggage reimbursement of up to $3,000 per passenger, trip delay reimbursement of up to $500 per ticket, purchase protection, and more.

The Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card

Meanwhile, new Marriott Bonvoy Bold cardmembers can net 60,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first three months from account opening. That’s double the Bold’s previous offer of 30,000 points, and while the spend requirement has also doubled, it’s still lower than the bonus thresholds on many popular travel cards.

With 60,000 Bonvoy points, you can nab two nights at off-peak rates at a Category 5 hotel such as Berlin’s Provocateur Hotel, a member of Marriott’s Design Hotels portfolio and one of Traveler’s picks for the best hotels in the city. Or, choose to go big with one night at standard rates at a Category 7 spot, like the recently opened Cloudveil in downtown Jackson, Wyoming.

Thanks to its lack of an annual fee, the Bold is a great card for those just starting out in the world of hotel points or anyone else who wants to earn some extra Bonvoy points but isn’t yet ready to commit their hotel loyalty to Marriott. The card earns three points per dollar on Marriott purchases and one point per dollar on everything else, which is less than you’ll get with the Boundless, but this fee-free card does share many of its sister card’s benefits: It comes with Silver elite status, baggage delay insurance, lost luggage reimbursement, trip delay reimbursement and purchase protection, to name a few.
