I had some trouble getting the refer a friend link for the temporarily increased 30,000 point SPG Amex offer to work for me yesterday morning, but it seems to be chugging along quite well now. So, I wanted to throw out a quick reminder that if you already have this card, a great strategy is to refer your family and friends to get the card. They get what is likely the best offer of the year for that card, and you get a 5,000 SPG point bonus for the successful referral! If you have the personal card then you can make referrals for the personal card. If you have the business card you can make referrals for the business card. In other words, you can’t make referrals for a version of the card that you don’t have yourself.
I will say up front that I have had trouble with Amex referrals paying out in the past, but as long as you actually know the people you are referring, and know for sure if they were approved, you should be able to get any referrals manually credited if they don’t pay out automatically. Of course, you are more than welcome to use my affiliate links to get the cards (and I am very appreciative if you do), but don’t forget that you can earn some points yourself by making referrals once you have the card(s)!
Nothing better than lots of points to go around for everyone!
