Starwood Preferred Guest Amex 30,000 Point Sign-Up Bonus
Update: This offer is expired!
Several times a year American Express offers an enhanced sign-up bonus of 30,000 points, up from the usual 25,000 points for the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) card. This new offer is especially important as today American Express improved many of the benefits offered and also debuted a new card design. I recently covered the improved benefits in my review of the SPG cards last week. I am confident when I say that the SPG is the best travel credit card based on Starwood’s loyalty program and the ability to earn bonus miles when you transfer to almost any airline.
Some of the new enhancements include:
- No Foreign Transaction Fees — Enjoy international travel without foreign transaction fees.
- Free Unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi — You’ll get complimentary, unlimited Wi-Fi access when you enroll in the Boingo American Express Preferred Plan.
- Free Premium In-Room Internet Access — Usually faster than the basic internet.
- Sheraton Club Access — If you have the SPG Business card, you’ll receive free access to Sheraton Clubs when you book paid stays. This is basically free continental breakfast and evening snacks. Nothing fancy but it’s a nice perk.
