Hi Travel Junkies,

Just a heads up, American Express just upped the offer on their Starwood Preferred Guest Credit card to 35,000 bonus points! This is the highest offer I have ever seen on the card, which usually offers only 25,000 bonus points.

NOTE: This bonus is no longer active as of April 5th, 2017.

Here are the details of the offer for the personal version of the card:

  • Earn 25,000 Starpoints after spending $3,000 in the first three months with the card
  • Earn 10,000 Starpoints after spending an additional $2,000
  • $95 annual fee is waived for the first year
  • 5 nights and 2 stay credits toward elite status
  • Earn SPG Gold status when you spend $30,000 in a calendar year
  • Offer expires April 5, 2017

The business version is slightly different:

  • Earn 25,000 Starpoints after spending $5,000 in the first three months with the card
  • Earn 10,000 Starpoints after spending an additional $3,000
  • $95 annual fee is waived for the first year
  • 5 nights and 2 stay credits toward elite status
  • Earn SPG Gold status when you spend $30,000 in a calendar year
  • Sheraton Club Lounge Access
  • Offer expires April 5, 2017

Starwood points are one of my favorite loyalty currencies because of their flexibility. You can use Starpoints to book free or discounted nights at many Starwood properties or transfer them to more than 30 different airline partners at a rate of 20,000 Starpoints > 25,000 frequent flyer miles.

Just this past year I used Starpoints to score some amazing hotels on long weekend trips to Central Europe and the Iberian Peninsula.

And don’t forget that Starpoints now transfer to Marriott at a rate of 3:1. Meaning the 35,000 Starpoints could potentially become 105,000 Marriott points. Opening up a TON of additional redemption options for you.

The 35,000 bonus point offer also applies to the business version of this card, and you are able to earn both bonuses if you like. Remember that your side business is enough to be qualified for business credit cards.

But don’t delay, the 35,000 bonus point offer will only be around until April 5th.

 

Bottom Line:

I personally have both the personal and business version of this card because I am such a fan of Starpoints. This is one of the best cards on the market even if you take away the airline transfer options, and an absolute must get because of them.

Happy Travels,

Bryce
