Elite Status Possible 30 nights of elite qualifying credit from Amex Marriott Bonvoy cards?

    Consensus everywhere seems to be that while the 15 night credit is pretty common across the Bonvoy card portfolio, the benefits never ever stack.

    However, when browsing the terms and conditions of both the American Express Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant and Business cards, both seem to have the below language, suggesting something different.

    Meanwhile, I checked Chase's terms, and they very clearly limit it to 15 days.

    In practice, is it possible to actually receive 30 elite qualifying nights by being a cardholder of both Amex Bonvoy flavors? Or am I misinterpreting the terms?


    15 Elite Night Credits
    The 15 Elite Night Credits will be credited to your Marriott Bonvoy™ Member Account within 60 days upon opening your Card Account. On or before March 1 of each subsequent calendar year, the 15 Elite Night Credits will be credited to your Marriott Bonvoy Member Account operated by Marriott International, Inc., in accordance with Marriott Bonvoy terms and conditions, as long as your Card Account is open as of December 31 of the prior calendar year.

    To be eligible to receive the 15 Elite Night Credits with this Card, you must be the Basic Card Member, and you must have an active Marriott Bonvoy Member Account linked to your Card Account. A maximum of 15 Elite Night Credits will be provided per Marriott Bonvoy Member Account, unless you have both a small business Marriott Bonvoy Card account and a consumer Marriott Bonvoy Card account; then, you may receive a combined maximum of 30 Elite Night Credits (15 per Card account). This benefit is not exclusive to Credit Cards offered by American Express.
