Chase/Marriott Rewards Credit Card reducing its benefits

Hello, did anyone else notice this by-the-way announcement in last week's "updated benefits" email?

"Also, beginning January 1, 2019, if you have more than one Marriott Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest, or Ritz-Carlton Rewards credit card, you will only receive a total of one 15 Elite Night Credits benefit per calendar year, which will be credited to one of your Marriott Loyalty Program accounts."

 

When I signed up for my personal Marriott credit card, I got the full court marketing press to also sign up for a business card, and the 15 elite nights per card per year was part of that marketing blitz. This feels like bait-and-switch to me, especially since the change goes into effect less that six months after the updated terms were announced, and after many of us have paid our annual credit card fees.

 

Why the reduction in benefits, Marriott?
