Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) card – 30,000 bonus point offer for both the personal and business versions – Back on May 30th, SPG and Amex rolled out a limited offer that was at first only available by referrals from an existing card holder. Then within a few days the offer went public and anybody could apply for the offer without a referral. However, I would still appreciate the opportunity to send you a referral as I do not have affiliate links. If you want a referral for the personal card please leave a comment or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a referral and it will be much appreciated. If you prefer you can simply head on over to the public links: Personal SPG Card or the Business SPG Card.

The standard sign-up bonus has been 10,000 points worth $100, so double the offer is good.

In addition to the 20,000 points/$200 bonus you will also earn another 2,500 points or $25 when add an authorized user to the account and make a first purchase. What makes this card having in spite of the lower value sign up bonus’ that are typically offered is the ability to earn 5% back on the card at rotating different categories every quarter such as this quarter which is gas stations and Kohl’s.

However, if you have a Sapphire Preferred card or one the Ink Bold or Plus cards you can combine the points and transfer to the various airline and hotel partner programs making them even more valuable. Plus, with no annual fee, this is a card you can hold forever.
