Update: The credit card offer in this post is no longer available. Check our credit card page for the latest offers.

You can get a 30,000 point bonus on the Starwood Preferred Guest Amex cards (personal and business) after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.  But you have to apply by September 14, 2015.

spg amex, st. regis bora bora, 30k bonus

30,000 Starwood points gets you 1 night at the St. Regis Bora Bora

 Starwood Preferred Guest Amex 30,000 Points

With the SPG Amex card you get:

  • 2 Starwood points per $1 spent at Starwood hotels
  • 1 Starwood point per $1 spent on everything else
  • Free in-room premium Wi-Fi (at participating hotels)
  • Free unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi hotspot use (on up to four devices)
  • Free access to Sheraton Club lounges (free breakfast, snacks and drinks) for SPG American Express Business cardholder and 1 guest
  • 2 stay credits or 5 nights credit toward Starwood elite status
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • $95 annual fee is waived for the first year
  • Terms & limitations apply

Using Starwood Points

You can use Starwood points for stays at Starwood hotels including:

  • Aloft
  • Element Hotels
  • Four Points by Sheraton
  • Le Meridien
  • Sheraton
  • St. Regis
  • The Luxury Collection
  • Tribute
  • W Hotels
  • Westin

And you can also transfer them to airline partners.  With some airlines, you get a 5,000 point bonus when you transfer 20,000 Starwood points.  So 20,000 Starwood points transferred to an airline like American Airlines becomes 25,000 American Airlines miles, enough to fly to Hawaii. 🙂

Getting the Sign-Up Bonus Again

With American Express personal cards, you can only get the sign-up bonus once.

However, you can get the sign-up bonus again on Amex business cards.  So if you’ve gotten the SPG Amex Business card in the past, you can apply again.


Through September 14, 2015, you can get 30,000 point sign-up bonus on the Amex Starwood Preferred Guest personal and business card.

But if you’ve had the personal SPG card in the past, you can’t get the sign-up bonus again.  But you can get it again on the Starwood Amex business card.

Now that the bonus is 30,000 points, will you be applying for an SPG card?

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card is the best card to get started in the world of miles and points. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining, $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.

Chase Freedom Unlimited®

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of an additional 1.5% cash back on all your purchases up to $20,000 your first year.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal, 3% cash back at drugstores and restaurants (including delivery and takeout), 1.5% cash back on all other purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card or Ink Business Cash® Credit Card, you can use your points to travel for free.
