SPG Amex Bonus Goes 35K, Share a link

Maybe there has been some falling off of SPG sign ups since no one really knows what the points will be worth once Marriott swallows Starwood. We also don’t know what is going to happen to the SPG Amex card. Will it stay? Will it go? SPG points have always been some of the highest valued in the world of miles and points because they transfer to an very large number of airlines.  They have also been famously difficult to aquire. Having the bonus of 35K for new American Express sign ups is the highest I have seen the offer. Most enthusiast wait until the offer is 30K to jump.

Is it worth blowing one of your American Express sign ups, I would say yes. This card may be gone next year, we just don’t know. You can always transfer the points out to the many airline partners if Marriott devalues the SPG points (which I find likely based on nothing more than my gut instinct).

Comment with your E-mail below for a link to the bonus, I have a limited number I can send out. If you have a link please send to one of the requests below.

Kia Test Drive Offer

My daughter found this offer to Test Drive a Kia and get a $25 Visa Gift Card. Pretty easy.  Test drive offer is available from February 3 – March 31, 2016. Fill out and print the form, take it to a dealer for validation.

I have to admit I have a Kia Optima and I love it. I came from a Lincoln and gas prices were high at the time. The Lincoln was a v8, which is fun to drive until you have to keep returning to a gas station at over $3 a gallon. The Optima Sport was a good replacement. The only negatives I have found is visibility when look out the back corners is terrible and the front passenger seat sits very very low and is not adjustable up and down.  It is a sleek car that turns lots of heads, a 2012 model that people still stop me in parking lots to ask what it is.  🙂 Reminds me it is almost spring and time to break out the wax and elbow grease to bring back the shine.
