When will 30000 bonus come back again? do you know? I am waiting for this!
I don’t have any inside information, but the American Express Starwood Hotel (SPG) 30,000 point signup bonus has always appeared in the 2nd half of the year.
Here’s when the 30,000 point American Express Starwood hotel offer has previously appeared:
- 2010 – June 30, 2010
- 2011 – July 2011
- 2012 – August 2012
Perhaps it will come back in a different month, so in September, October, November or December this year. Or perhaps it will come back in the same month, so either June, July or August.
Or not at all, though I suspect that AMEX has to increase their sign-up bonuses to stay competitive with the other card issuers, so we may see some new offers. Marketers are fairly predictable, so if we know that something has worked well in the past, we’re eager to bring it back!
The current bonus for the Starwood Preferred Guest personal and business card is 25,000 bonus points after spending $5,000 within the first 6 months.
You earn 2 points per $1 spent at Starwood hotels and resorts with the Starwood Preferred Guest card from American Express. You also earn 1 Starpoint for each dollar spent everywhere else.
Starwood hotel points transfer to over 29 airlines including American, British Airways & Delta. And you get a 5,000 bonus when you transfer 20,000 Starpoints to partner airlines.
Cash & Points greatly increases the value of SPG points, because it lets you pay for a hotel stay using fewer points, but with a nominal cash supplement.
There are no guarantees that the Starwood 30,000 point offer will return. But if you were planning on applying for the Starwood Preferred Guest card from American Express and can wait for a few months, you could get an extra 5,000 Starwood points!
