SPG Amex 30K Bonus 2015
As I predicted yesterday, American Express has increased the bonus on their two co-branded SPG credit cards to 30K Starpoints for a limited time. If you are interested in either of these cards, I highly suggest taking a look at yesterday’s post for my thoughts and analysis on the cards, including their usefulness in the long term.
The offers on both cards have been increased to 30K, however notice the spending difference between the business and personal cards. Both increased offers expire on 9/14/15, so you plenty of time to make a decision as to whether they are right for you or not.
- SPG Amex Business Credit Card – Earn 30K Starpoints after $5K in spending during the first 3 months. $95 annual fee is waived the first year.
- SPG Amex Personal Credit Card – Earn 30K Starpoints after $3K in spending during the first 3 months. $95 annual fee is waived the first year.
- No foreign transaction fees
- 2X Starpoints on eligible spending at SPG properties
- 1X Starpoints on all eligible spending
- Unlimited Boingo WiFi
- Free premium internet at SPG properties
- Sheraton Club lounge access (Business card only)
Where to Apply
You can get these offers directly on the Amex or SPG websites as well as through pretty much any other channel. Current cardholders can also refer you and earn 5K points for themselves.
Finally, if you are interested in supporting Miles to Memories, you can also apply for these and many other cards through our cc.com link found on this page. (Update: The links now seem to be live.) Feel no pressure to use our link, however thank you in advance if you do and feel free to ask any questions in the comments either way.
As I mentioned yesterday, I have been waiting for this increased 30K offer and both my wife and I plan to apply for at least one version of the card. Starpoints are hard to acquire and I find them to be quite valuable. Since the offers are good through 9/14, you have plenty of time to figure out if these cards make sense for you. I know that I won’t be rushing and will instead factor them into my overall credit card strategy.
