1 Week Left! Biggest Bonus Offer Ever On SPG Amex!

With all the back and forth bidding between Anbang (chinese investment group) and Marriott to takeover Starwood, I’ve just been concerned (along with others) on what is going to happen to my SPG points. With Marriott sweetening the deal this week and offering $13.6 billion (more than Anbang), this ordeal is far from over. SPG points remain arguably the most valuable point currency out there.

I never understood why most of the travel bloggers I follow raved so much about this card until recently when I got both the personal and business version and realized the beauty in flexibility of usage and redemption values.

SPG points transfer to 31 different airlines including Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, and United at 1:1 rate and SPG has the most airline partners of any reward currency! Best of all? For every 20,000 points you convert to an airline, you get an additional 5,000 point bonus. So 20,000 Starwood points = 25,000 miles. 

Or, simply use SPG points for amazing hotel stays at brands like The W, St. Regis, Sheraton, The Westin. Redemptions start at ONLY 2,000 SPG points per night. As you see, SPG points are arguably the most flexible points currency in the game and can be used for free nights at some excellent hotel brands or by transferring to airlines and getting 5,000 miles bonus for free.

Until next week March 30, 2016, the SPG Amex will have a 35,000 Starwood point sign-up bonus that is the biggest bonus EVER for these cards! 35,000 Starwood points is enough for 3 NIGHTS at W Fort Lauderdale after meeting the $3,000 minimum spend. Cash rates at this hotel for a 3 day weekend in April cost $342 per night or you can use your Starpoints and only spend 12,000 per night.
