The Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express is one of the best travel rewards credit cards out there. We go into the “why?” on the pages that review the Personal SPG Amex credit card and the Business version of the SPG Amex
But for the last two years (and now this makes three), American Express has launched an offer around this time offering more bonus points for a new cardmember.
It is back as of THIS MORNING and only until September 2nd, 2012 (so get on it – don’t “think” too long). The terms this time around are as follows:
You’ll get 10,000 Starpoints with your first purchase and another 20,000 Starpoints when you have spent $5,000 within your first 6 months of cardmembership.
What can you get with 30,000 Starpoints? You could get a 5 night stay in a Category 3 hotel! That could easily be worth $750 or more. Or 3 nights in a category 4 or 2 nights in a Category 5. Traveling to Asia? In a Category 1 or 2 hotel, these points could buy you 10 nights worth well over $1,000. It’s ALL about how you use the points.
