Earn 10,000 Extra Starwood Points for AMEX Starwood Card Referrals

You must have the card you’re referring.  And you can earn a maximum of 55,000 Starwood points for referrals, each calendar year.

This is double the normal referral bonus of 5,000 Starwood points!

And your friend can earn 25,000 Starwood points with their new card after meeting minimum spending requirements.

Don’t forget, American Express only allows folks to get the sign-up bonus ONCE per person, per lifetime on ALL their cards.  So your friend might want to wait for a higher sign-up bonus, like the best-ever offer earlier this year for 35,000 Starwood points!

Thanks for this very honest post about the pros and cons of the SPG referral offer (in that you mention the once in a lifetime restriction Amex has instituted).

I would jump on this (with a referral from a friend) if only I hadn’t had the card years ago.

I may have to just close up my Amex apps since it is pretty tough to keep track of bonuses received years ago. The new Amex policy is a real disincentive to apply for their cards.

I wish. I tried getting some of my family members to join back when it was a 35k offer, but NONE of them would even after talking the card up.
