If you plan on applying for the amazing 35,000 point offers on the American Express Starwood Preferred Guest personal and small business cards, your application must be received by tomorrow, April 5, 2017.
The sign-up bonuses alone can be used for Big Travel at luxurious Starwood, Marriott, and Ritz-Carlton hotels. Or award flights with Starwood’s airline transfer partners, like American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and more.
I’ll show you how to take advantage of this terrific deal!
Starwood 35,000 Offer 2017
When you apply by April 5, 2017, (tomorrow!), you can earn a total of 35,000 Starwood points after meeting the tiered minimum spending requirements on the AMEX Starwood personal and small business cards. That’s an outstanding offer, because the sign-up bonus is usually 25,000 Starwood points.
With the AMEX Starwood personal card, you can earn 25,000 Starwood points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. And 10,000 more Starwood points for spending another $2,000 on purchases within the first 6 months.
With the small business version of the card, you’ll earn 25,000 Starwood points after spending $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. And 10,000 more Starwood points for spending another $3,000 on purchases within the first 6 months.
You’ll also get perks like 2X Starwood points per $1 you spend at Starwood hotels, unlimited use of Boingo Wi-Fi hotspots (excluding in-flight), and more. Plus, the $95 annual fee is waived for the first year on both cards.
Here’s my review of these great offers. Nearly all the Million Mile Secrets team members have one (or both!) of these cards!
Note: American Express only allows folks to get the sign-up bonus ONCE per person, per lifetime on ALL their cards.
