Million Mile Secrets reader Dave together with other readers (thanks!) emailed me about a new 30,000 point offer for the American Express SPG card after spending $5,000 within 6 months. But only for applications received by December 12, 2011!
This is a much better than the current offer of 25,000 points after spending $5,000 within 6 months and is similar to the earlier, limited time, offer in July.
I updated the link in the Hot Deals earlier so that you have access to only the best credit card offers but am blogging about it now.
I like SPG points because I can use them for discounted “cash & point” awards and because SPG has some nice hotels to stay in. 30,000 points will get you 3 nights at a Category 4 hotel or about 7 nights if you pay 4,000 SPG points + $60 per night.
You also earn 1.25 airline miles when you transfer SPG points to select airlines in multiples of 20,000 points.
As always, you can find the SPG hotel award chart in the “Miles and Point Resources” tab on the blog.
Update: If you recently got the 25,000 version offer it doesn’t hurt to call or secure message American Express to ask them to match the latest offer. They haven’t been as accommodating as usual, but you won’t get anything if you don’t ask!
Bottom Line: If you were considering applying for the SPG card, you can now get an extra 5,000 points if you apply before December 12, 2011.
Disclosure: I don’t get any referral bonus or commission from American Express or anyone else for this post or for the links to the American Express SPG credit card in this post.
