All correspondence, including credit cards, statements, and notifications will be sent to the name and address on file for the primary cardmember. The primary cardmember is responsible for repaying all balances on this account. Authorized users will have the same charging privileges as the primary cardmember but will not be financially responsible.

I currently have the Marriott Visa, I have for many years.

So if I call and cancel my current one, then apply for a new one, do you think I will be eligible for the bonus? It has been way more than 24 months since I received a bonus.

Good question. Do you and your spouse both have a card though. If your spouse doesn't, you can always have them apply and get the 80K.

I need to find a way

I currently have the card but the wife is a joint holder on the account. When l have pursued this in the past they have told me that I need to close our current acccount and then re-apply. Currently on vacation MOC so clsong the account would probably cost me some points or nights which I don't want to jeopardize. Does anyone have any experience to share in a work around solution to this situation?

I shouldn't matter if you wife is an authorized user. I am an authorized user on my wife's card but was still able to get my own.

You can cancel and reapply. You will still need to put a little time between closing and opening. About a month or two may be good. However, I waited about a year. Flyertalk has some discussion about this.

Important to differentiate between an authorized user and a joint card holder. If joint, it is a problem, if authorized they can apply on their own and then add the other spouse as an authorized user. I see no reason to ever have joint credit card accounts.
