  2. Hello, This may be quite off the topic, but I was wondering how one can get the links posted to a website (or blog) such as yours say such that when they click that ad/link you can get credit for the referral per approved application through your link? For example, I have a travel agent website and I want to post on my site that for my friends, they can apply for the Starwood SPG by clicking on the referral link I have? How can I get such referral link? Do I have to contact American Express? Are there requirements to do so? Can you pls share some thoughts/advice? Thanks.

  3. @Jiang – I use FlexOffers for referral links. There are different requirements for different banks and cards.

  4. Do the hotel points expire? It is clear that airline miles usually expire in 18 months without activities, not so clear with the hotel point programs.

  5. @Ben – They do and here’s a post on that.

  6. Daraius, I do not see a link to post of hotel point expiration, mind provide that?

  7. would like a reward card for any hotel so I can get free nights

  8. The sign-up for Club Carlson in your link has a 2K bonus….however, I got errors when I tried to sign up.

    Do you know if it is still valid, or if there are any other sign-up bonuses?

  9. @Seth – It expired in 2012, which could explain the error. I’ll change it.

  11. Is it still available for this year? What are the things we do to get points? is it to sign up only or there are things to be done? Please help I really want to know it.

    Thanks in Advance.

  12. @Epe Darwin – Read the beginners guide to see how to earn miles and points. The best way in the US is by signing up for credit cards.

  13. Is it better to sign up now or wait for an award offer linked to one of the hotel chains?

  14. Does the Starwood Preferred Guest credit card bonus ever go above 25,000 points?
    Or is the reduced spending amount to get the points the best deal for this card?


  15. Love your blog! Had a quick question that is confusing me:

    I see that you have airline/hotel reward programs. Are these different than earning credit card points? How so?

    Let’s say I booked a Hilton hotel through the Hilton reward program, with my Chase Sapphire card – would I be earning double points by “double dipping”, earning points with the Hilton reward program AND earning points on my Chase Sapphire card?

    My understanding is that with reward/loyalty programs, you’re earning points by actually staying/flying with that company. With credit cards, you’re earning points by spending money/signup bonuses.

    Is that correct? Thanks so much!
