Amex SPG 30,000 Bonus on Personal Card [YMMV]

The Offer

  • Signup for the SPG personal credit card and receive a sign up bonus of 30,000 SPG points after spending $3,000 within the first three months of card membership

The standard offer is 25,000 points, and that offer still comes up for some. However, numerous Reddit users report seeing the 30k offer using the regular link.

Go to the SPG signup page on the Amex site, try regular browser, try private browsing, try a few times, and hopefully you’ll see this offer.

Card Details

  • No foreign transaction fee
  • Annual fee of $95 is waived the first year
  • Boingo internet access for up to four devices
  • Premium in room internet at all SPG hotels
  • Earn 2x points on all SPG purchases
  • Earn 1x points on all other purchases

Our Verdict

SPG points are very valuable, and they became even more flexible with the added ability to transfer to Marriott at 1:3. If you’re on the fence for the SPG personal card, now is a good time to apply.

Make sure to read these 21 things to know about Amex before applying.

If you recently applied under the 25k offer, you can try getting a match on the current offer. Amex doesn’t officially ‘match’, but if you speak to the right person you can often get goodwill points to offset the difference.

whats the experience of getting approved for a new serve if your previous serve has been closed (due to unusual activity ?)

Is there a loophole to get approved for a new one?

Strange enough I only got this offer when NOT incognito and using IE. I’ve been looking for 30k every day since they got rid of the 2 night bonus but never thought to not use incognito until comments on reddit lol.

Huge warning! I used Serve to meet minimum spend on Amex Platinum (half was Serve, half was real spend), and Amex clawed back all of my points. Beware!!!

I called to request the 5,000 points match or goodwill points since I recently opened the card for the 25,000 points bonus. The customer service representative said he could not do anything. I asked to speak to a supervisor and after waiting a minute or so, the customer service representative came back on the line and said that his supervisor posted the 5,000 points as goodwill points. I looked at my AMEX account and the points were posted.

Is there a way to combine Starwood points for family members with same address?

Yes, my wife and I have transferred points between eachothers’ accounts. It even counts as activity, to prevent points from expiring.

I closed out my chrome browser, then reopened it. I went to Americanexpress.com, then clicked all cards. In the list of cards the SPG only shower 25k, but when I clicked on it, the 30k popped up.
