Our Verdict

This is the equal highest bonus ever on this card, last time it was offered it had a lower total spend requirement of only $5,000. That being said SPG has been acquired by Marriott now and SPG points can be transferred to Marriott at a rate of 1:3.

Keep in mind you’re not eligible for a bonus on this card if you have or have had this card before (personal card is treated separately, so this only applies if you’ve had or have the SPG business card). Also keep in mind the normal American Express application rules. Also read this page on things everybody should know about American Express cards first.

[Read: Best Uses Of Marriott & SPG Points]

Should you apply? Well that depends if you can meet the minimum spend requirement of $8,000 (remember $3,000 of that is first six months and the other $5,000 is the first three months). Personally I wouldn’t risk manufactured spend with American Express, but everybody has different risk levels.

If you can meet the minimum spend requirement and haven’t already gotten this card – I’d go for it. I’d recommend using another readers referral link as well (these can be found here). SPG points are extremely valuable for SPG stays and can be converted to a lot of airline partners at good rates (with a bonus 5,000 for every 20,000 converted). You can also use these points to get closer to a Marriott Flight + Hotel package.

If you’ve recently signed up for this card, ask to be matched with American Express.  There is also a similar offer on the personal card for 35,000 points but with a lower minimum spend requirement.

Just to confirm, this SPG Biz 35K is an official, public offer from Amex right?

Bc I didnt need to jump through hoops and loops (e.g., use chinese method, use incognito) to see this on my computer screen

Hmm, I’m 2/90 limited until 9 April. Can I apply on 5 April and recon after I’m outside the window?

It’s worth trying for sure.

Is there a special link to the referral page to generate 35k offers? Mine still show as 25k.

What would be a good biz charge card to combine app with SPG Business?

Looking for a second biz card, ideally, in hopes of getting below 5/24

Already have Biz Plat in hand and never have luck with getting the targeted 75K BGR offer

Can you use SPG Business card to pay mortgage via Plastiq to be eligible for sign up bonus?

Are there any reports of Amex clawing back partner sign-up bonuses due to MS? I know there were plenty of reports for the Platinum, and even some for Gold & Green. But I haven’t heard of any clawbacks for hotel/airline bonuses when MS was used.

You could sign up for 3 other credit cards and meet the min spend with that $8000 instead of getting this one, and get a lot more signup value out of your spend. I’m gonna pass.

Do you have any suggestions for those other cards? I’m thinking about the same thing – already have CSP, CSR, Amex Blue Cash Everyday and the Personal SPG amex (the last two within the last 45 days). I’m at 4/24 with that.

Is Amex’s credit card limit 4 or 5? I have 3x Delta and one BCP. I tried calling CSRs but they are by and large clueless and don’t even know their own policies.

Would applying for SPG open and then offer to cancel a card on recon work? Please help.

I have five. I wanted to get the Blue Bus card a few weeks ago so I cancelled my Hilton card and then applied for the Blue Bus a few weeks later. It went pending, but I was approved within a few days.

If you’ve previously had the Business SPG and bonus obtained as a sole prop/#SS – are you able to get another bonus if you apply with an EIN?

If you’ve had the Business SPG and bonus from from a corp/partnership (w/EIN) – can you get another bonus with a different EIN?

I asked an american sounding phone rep and he said ‘no – it’s tied to you SS#’ but that strikes me as a little sloppy for medium/large size businesses.

I know AMEX personal card offer is once per life time, not churnable.
How about AMEX BIZ card offer?
I closed my AMEX SPG BIZ card (obtained as a sole prop/#SS) last Oct, can I churn this 35K SPG BIZ offer now?

Thank you very much!
