Best SPG American Express sign-up offer ever

UPDATE: This promotion is over and the sign-up bonus has changed. You can find the best current offers here.

Right now the SPG American Express has the best sign-up offer I’ve ever seen. They’re offering 30,000 SPG points after spending $1,000 on the card within three months of membership. The previous best offer was 15,000 SPG points after your first purchase and another 15,000 points after spending $15,000 in the first six months of membership. Obviously the spending requirement here is much easier to achieve.

This really is an incredible offer. SPG points are probbly the most valuable points currency (as I outlined the other day), as they have dozens of airline transfer partners and can be converted at what’s essentially a 1:1.25 ratio.

So if you don’t have the SPG American Express, this is the time to sign up!


  1. Probably a dumb question–but I had this card, I’d say a year and half ago and canceled it….should I reapply and hope to get it? I do have an SPG acct from that one, but the balance on it is zero.

  2. Amex keeps pretty good records Sultan. Can’t hurt to try though.

    I wish I didn’t have both cards already. Darn, timing is everything

  3. Thanks for the heads up, Lucky! I’d been waiting for a lower minimum-spend on the card or a higher income for myself (to be sure I could afford $15k in six months). I immediately pulled the trigger on this deal. Cheers!

  4. You don’t have to resign up, just call up SPG and tell them you want those bonus points. Usually they listen.

  5. Very interested in signing up for this card in my wife’s account, but she is not a frequent traveller. I travel a lot for my business. But I just got approved for Costco Amex card, which is also good for traveller like me. Is there any problem if I am not the primary card holder? Advantages and disadvantages if any if I am the add on card holder? Thanks.

  6. This is a nice deal, but to be clear, you get just as many points as before… no more, no less… just a lower spending limit.

  7. Hi Lucky,

    I was declined by AMEX for this card. I am currently holding two AMEX gold cards, do you think I can ask them to cancel one of my gold cards and get this one? Will they do that? Thanks. I really want this card.
