[Disclosure: The links to the limited time 30,000 point American Express Starwood Personal & Starwood Business credit cards earn me a referral. But you can get an extra 5,000 points for yourself by NOT using those links and referring your friend or partner.]

I have to remove the link to the 30,000 point American Express Starwood credit card by the end of Tuesday, September 4, 2012. However, the link may change or expire earlier on September 4, 2012.
I applied for both the personal and business Starwood credit card, and will use my Starwood points for cheap cash and points award stays (when available).
If you have a Starwood personal credit card, you can refer someone else for the personal card and get 5,000 extra Starpoints for every approved application.
Bottom Line: As always, offers come and go, and I wouldn’t worry about missing this offer. The regular offer was for 25,000 points which is only 5,000 fewer points.
The Starwood 30,000 point offer has appeared twice before – once in summer 2010 and for a second time in summer 2011. I don’t have any inside information, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it back again just like the British Airways credit card which seems to come and go with some regularity.
I’m traveling today so won’t be able to get to the comments until later!
