Earlier this month, Citi increased the sign-up bonus for the Citi Prestige card.

With the previous offer it took over 2 years to earn the sign-up bonus.  But now you can earn it by spending $3,000 on purchases within 3 months of opening your account!

Do NOT Make This Mistake With Citi Hilton Reserve $100 Statement Credit

Because of the improved offer for the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card, folks have been asking about the limited time $100 statement credit for Hilton hotel stays.

With this offer, you get a $100 statement credit after spending $100 or more on your 1st Hilton hotel stay within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.

But be careful!  You have to spend at least $100 at ONCE on your 1st hotel stay, otherwise you will NOT get the credit!

Is the Increased Bonus on the AMEX Starwood Card Worth Waiting For?

Million Mile Secrets reader Keith commented with a question about booking rooms for his company.  But the answer could apply to most anybody thinking about applying for the Starwood AMEX card!

Daraius, I’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on an application for the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express until the bonus goes up to 30,000 Starwood points again.

I occasionally book blocks of rooms for my company and have an event coming up in a couple of months that will require 25 rooms at ~$100 each at a Sheraton in Dallas.  The meeting rewards, if I understand it correctly, only offer 1 point per $3 spent.

My question is whether I should continue to wait for the bonus to increase by 5,000 points or go ahead and jump on the 25,000 Starwood point bonus offer?

Booking events and meetings at Starwood hotels can be a great way to earn lots of extra Starwood points!  And you’ll earn even more if you pay with the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card.

But even folks who book personal paid stays or events at Starwood hotels should consider the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card, because you’ll earn an extra 2 points per $1 you spend at Starwood hotels.

Is The Increased Bonus On The AMEX Starwood Card Worth Waiting For

Should Keith Sign-Up for the Starwood Preferred Guest AMEX Now, If He Has an Event to Book?

Let’s see if you’ll do better getting the card now with a lower sign-up bonus, or waiting for the 30,000 point offer to come back!
