American Express is currently offering 2 great increased offers on both the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express (publicly offered.) Offer ends 04/05/2017. We told you all about these and why Now Is A Great Time To Get The Starwood American Express Card/s! But, let’s take a look at why both SPG and Marriott enthusiasts should consider applying for the SPG Amex Card/s. EXPIRED
Both SPG And Marriott Enthusiasts Should Apply For SPG Amex Card
Remember, Starpoints are valuable and made more so by the Marriott Starwood merger last year. You can transfer 1 Starpoint to 3 Marriott points. This means that the 35,000 Starpoint sign up bonus can be converted to a whopping 105,000 Marriott Rewards points; which is a huge sign-up bonus for Marriott enthusiasts.
As we mention in our post, here if you were to pick these both up, that would equate to 70,000 bonus Starpoints or a total 210,000 Marriott Rewards points! Yes, you can apply for both of these cards.
Earning points with your card
Marriott’s co-branded cards earn cardholders 5x Marriott Rewards points per dollar at all Marriott properties. The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express offers 2x Starpoints per dollar spent at all Marriott properties which can be converted to Marriott points at 6x Marriott points spent per dollar. 6x is better then 5x, making the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express a good card to use at Marriott properties.
With the merger of Starwood and Marriott, the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express are very interesting offers for both SPG and Marriottt enthusiasts alike. Both cards earn 35,000 bonus Starpoints per card for signing up and meeting the spending requirements. If you were to pick these both up, that would equate to 70,000 bonus Starpoints or a total 210,000 Marriott Rewards points! Both SPG and Marriott enthusiasts should consider applying for the SPG Amex Card/s with these increased offerings which end 04/05/2017.
Both of these offers are for a limited time and can earn you 40% more sign up bonus points then the normal offer. On both cards the $95 annual fee is waived for the first year. The official terms of the offers say that if you have had these cards before you can not get the bonus again. So, these offers are for folks who have not had the card/s before. Terms Apply. Offer ends 04/05/2017.
