This is the best bonus ever on the SPG card. The standard bonus is usually 25,000 points and normally goes up to 30,000 once per year. If you’ve never had either card, then I’d definitely sign up for this card – although it could go higher if American Express wants to up their number of cardholders before any Marriott/SPG merger. I’d also recommend reading these things you should know about American Express credit cards.
One of them is about American Express matching sign up bonuses, if you applied for one of these cards recently with a lower sign up bonus then American Express won’t usually match you, but they will sometimes give you courtesy points. Share your experiences in the comments below.
Update: The referral links also include the new 35,000 point sign up bonus. Please don’t share them here, we will set up another post and you can share them there instead.
