Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express Is No Longer Available through this Site.
The longer-term future for the SPG program and the SPG co-branded Amex credit cards is not yet clear given the acquisition of Starwood by Marriott, but in the here and now, I believe SPG points to be the most valuable type of mile or point out there. The SPG program is one of my favorites as high-quality stays can be had for a reasonable number of points. In fact, I’m 95% sure I will be mattress running for Platinum SPG status this year as I have so many planned SPG award stays in 2018 that the payoff should be worth it. While I am sure it contributes greatly to the sustainability and stability of the program, outside of paid stays at SPG hotels, SPG points can be relatively hard to earn. In fact, the primary way to earn SPG points for most of us is through the co-branded SPG Amex credit cards.
SPG BUSINESS OFFER REFERENCED BELOW IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
There are two different SPG Amex credit cards you can obtain and use to earn SPG points, one is a personal card and one is a small business card. Right now for a limited time, the small business version of the card has increased its sign-up bonus from 25,000 total points to 35,000 total points after hitting the spending requirements as long as you obtain the card by 11/1/2017.
Limited Time Increased Bonus for the SPG Business Amex Offer Has Expired
I know that 10,000 additional SPG points may not sound earth-shattering, but given how valuable they are, it is actually a substantial increase and is the highest mark we have seen this bonus reach.
