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.

AmexOffers $10 back on $200 Amex Gift Card (5%)

Amex Gift Card

Check your American Express offers this morning for the $10 back on $200 Gift Card purchase. Don’t forget to check all your cards as I had this offer on 5/6 cards for my household. Read the terms carefully they are a bit confusing and basically are not good on Corporate cards, gift cheques or ‘prepaid’ cards. I had a nice chat Ronnie, the online CS, and confirmed that ‘prepaid’ only meant ‘those that work as a debit card.

I’ve never done it but this should be stackable with the TopCashBack portal of 1.5%. This will be my first experiment of this and I am sure others know for certain if it works. (yes that is my referral link for top cash back if you need to sign up, using my link would be great).

It is also nice this offer is good until end of July but these offers are usually limited in how many can sign up. Go to your AmexOffers at the bottom of your account page and ADD the offer to your cart before they are all gone.

Here are terms from the offer:

Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $200 or more online at americanexpress.com/gift by 7/31/2015. Excludes logo gift cards and gift cheques. See terms for additional exclusions.
Terms
Offer valid online only at americanexpress.com/gift. Not valid in store. Corporate Cards and all prepaid Card products are not eligible for this offer. If you order an item during the offer period but it is not sent until after 7/31/15, it may not count towards determining whether the purchase qualifies for the offer. Excludes logo gift cards and gift cheques. See merchant website for Shipping guidelines. Must add offer to Card and use same Card to redeem. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 7/31/15, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is returned/cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through…..
The online customer service was very nice and helpful, thanking me for my 21 years of loyalty. Everyone should be so nice in the morning.
Cheers!

$30 or more from American Express

After you’ve gotten everything ready for the big Thanksgiving feast tomorrow you should be preparing your shopping plan not just for Black Friday but also for Small Business Saturday. How you choose to shop and how you pay could mean the difference in hundreds of dollars.

I can’t tell you how much I save with my American Express Cards!
If you have an American Express card you should keep up with the latest Offers on your specific card. Log into your account page and at the bottom check out the Amex Offers & Benefits.
Make sure you click the ‘Add to Card’ button on any offers you want to use. Everyone should be able to take advantage of the #Shopsmall offer that is only one day each year… the Saturday after Thanksgiving…. American Express promotes Small Business Saturday the day after Black Friday.
The offers you find on American Express can be really good. For example right now on my cards I found: Toys R us (on-line) $15 back on $75, E-bags $10 back on $50, Petco $5 back on $10, Uber rides $10 back on $10, Starbucks online $5 back on $10, Sony $25 back on $100.

Creidt Cards
And it’s being reported that the Sony offer if also good on Gift Card purchases. So let’s think about that… if you have 4 different American Express cards, (like SPG, Hilton, Delta, Blue) you check and if each one is offering the $25 off $100 for Sony added it to yur card offers, you go to the Sony web site 4 separate times and buy 4 different gift cards. On each one you will get $25 back on your American Express bill. Now you have $400 in gift cards to shop at Sony… can anyone say $325 PlayStation 4?
And you should being figuring out where you want to spend your FREE $30 (per American Express card you have with the offer)…. Shop Small Business Saturday. American Express promotes this #ShopSmall by giving you $10 back on a $10 purchase …up to 3X If it is at a qualified Small Business and on Saturday November 29, 2014.

You have to go to your American Express account (For anyone that does not have an American Express, this offer should be available on the Bluebird Card (which is an American Express product). Once you add the OFFER to your card then you just find your favorite small business stores on the American Express Web Site www.shopsmall.com remember you have to spend the $10 minimum to get the $10 back, and then do that in 3 different stores!

YEAH! Free Shopping, only thing better is flying free and free shipping. Speaking of Free Shipping, I take full advantage of the FREE Shoprunner Program offered (yep for FREE) on one of my American Express cards. It really comes in handy when you don’t want to meet a minimum spend of $100 at some stores. You can buy just the item you want, maybe its only $30 and you get it shipped FREE/ 2day ! I love it and hope they continue offering the Shoprunner.

Also on some American Express offers is the great $150 BACK on a $150 spend with ATT wireless. Basically you pay your ATT bill online for $150 with your American Express (after you Save the offer to your Card) and American Express will CREDIT you back $150…  too bad I don’t have ATT.  Now thats a deal.
One of my favorite American Express cards is the Starwood or SPG card because the points can be converted 1:1 for many Airline programs (other hotels often are much lower transfer rate and because of this SPG points have a higher value).

The combination of the SPG program and the SPG American Express card is definitely a must for anyone that wants to save money and travel more.
If you don’t have an American Express and are ready to take things to the next level, e-mail me (millionmilesaga@outlook.com) or use the contact form below asking me for a link to a SPG American Express, I will be happy to provide a link that will includes an offer to earn 25,000 Star points with a minimum spend.
