The huge SPG 35,000 point offers are expiring tomorrow. If you need to get one, consider applying through a reader’s link, here, and have fun seeing what they would do with the referral points.

As you may have seen on other blogs, tomorrow is the final day for the SPG 35,000 point offers. These are the best offers that the SPG cards have ever seen and certainly worthy of getting! Since SPG cards only earn 1 point per dollar, this is really a great deal!

SPG 35,000 Point Offers Ending

Who Is Eligible For The Bonus?

First things first. Last week, amex changed the terms on their business cards to eliminate any previous/current cardholder from ever receiving the bonus again. Now, that policy applies to both personal and business cards.

This means that if you have ever had a business or personal SPG card, you are not eligible for this bonus. Amex will let you apply and may even give you the card, but you will not receive the bonus. If you are not sure if you have had the card(s), contact Amex to see if you have had it.

But, if you have had one card, you are absolutely eligible for the other card bonus. So, if you had the personal card, you can go ahead and get the business card and receive that bonus. The same works in the reverse.

Bonus Details

35,000 Starpoints

Personal Card

  • Earn 35,000 Starpoints after spending $3,000 in 3 months
  • $95 annual fee (waived for the first year)
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Offer expires 3/30/2016

Business Card

  • Earn 35,000 Starpoints after spending $5,000 in 3 months
  • $95 annual fee (waived for the first year)
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Offer expires 3/30/2016

Getting The Bonus Offer

The public links are  up and can be found right on the Amex home page or from here – personal card and business card. BUT, it would be great if you would read the stories below from other readers and select one of them to get a referral from your application.

Card Details

The Amex SPG cards are some of the most flexible out there given what you can do with their points. One of the things that makes them even more valuable is that you only earn 1 point per dollar spent for general spending. With these points, there are a variety of options to redeem for, including such things as transferring to a number of airlines and receiving a bonus of 5,000 miles when you transfer 20,000 points.

Also, you can do things like use these Starpoints for Moments, special packages that SPG has put together for their members. Some of them can give you extreme value like this one where the points received a redemption value of 16 cents per point!

And, of course, you can redeem directly for hotel stays. There are plenty of fabulous hotels in the SPG portfolio and these points can go a long way to setting you up for some great trips. One of the trips my family and I used some Starpoints on was for a great family vacation in Florida where we got 5 nights at an incredible hotel for only 40,000 points.

Help Your Fellow Readers!

These card offers are available through public links, but if you would like to help another RwM reader, please consider picking from the list below to help them get 5,000 points as well. I greatly appreciate those of you who used my links to help my SPG account to build up and I would really like to see these readers get some points as well. The readers below left their information in this post. They left what they would do with their points from referrals and their email. Please consider e-mailing one of them for the link!

  • Dear Folks, Please help in getting me just 2 more referrals. That’s all I ask. I just want to travel. Here’s a tip: I highly recommend you to get both the Personal and Business card, make 80,000 SPG points including signup bonus and $10K spend. I can say the best use of these SPG points (other than use within SPG hotels itself) is 1. Transfer to AA to get 100K miles . Club it with CitiGold 50K AA miles offer if you have a Citi AA credit card. 140K miles is enough for a roundtrip business to India/Middle east. 2. Transfer to Japan Airlines Mileagebank for 100K miles. Do a world tour in A380 Emirate Business JFk-MIL-DXB-BKK-DXB-JFK. substitute BKK (bangkok) for MLE (Maldives) or CMB (colombo) or any location in India if yu’d like. If you can get 120K SPG points, this will get you First class in A380 throughout the trip.Please give me your emails and I can give you more tips along with a referral link. Thanks. THANKS !!
