[Targeted/YMMV] American Express Personal SPG Spending Bonus: 30,000 Points After $15,000 In Spend

Found some other variations of the offer:

Hat tip to reader Tvvitter Yid

Changing to YMMV, as we now have an offer link you can try and log in for.

The Offer

Direct link to offer, this is a targeted offer so very much YMMV

  • American Express is offering some SPG personal cardholders spending bonuses. Register by October 31st and then receive 6,000 bonus points after $2,000 in spend and a further 4,000 bonus points after an additional $1,000 in spend. Spend must be completed by October 31st, 2018.

The Fine Print

  • Complete spend by October 31st, 2018
  • Register by September 9th, 2018

Our Verdict

These types of deals are frequent and usually offered when your annual fee will become due during that period. I guess these are just plain Marriott points now, so you can’t convert them 1:3? People will most likely have different offers showing as well, please share any offer you received in the comments below.

Definitely Marriott points, so it’s much less than it feels (cuz I haven’t gotten used to the fact that SPG is earning Marriott points.)
Well but I’m probably not targeted anyway… as always

Where do I look for this? SPG.com? Amex?

Your email?

When you log into Amex.

I got this exact same offer. I nearly completed a similar offer last year, only to have one charge post a few days late.

as always never targeted my amex

mine neither 🙁

I’ve literally not once been targeted for a single Amex spending incentive. Ever.

Had an offer just finish up. Cash back though. Not targetted for this one.

Got this one. My AF is due this month. I think that means a free night.

Then I know I’ve read this but I’ll ask anyway- it is absolutely not acceptable to MS bonuses like this, right? I can still buy 3rd party through Raise, but no VGC?

My card is up for renewal next month. No offer. I did spend 3k on the card last month as I wanted to get the last of the 3x Marriott points. Maybe using the card makes them not want to give you an offer.

I ramped up spending last month as well and did get the offer. I was thinking that was what led to the $6k spend offer. Would have preferred the $3k even though its fewer points.

Yep. Targeted for this. AF due this month.

Do you have any recent spend on the card?

Yep. A lot actually.

“We’re sorry. This promotion is only open to invited Card Members.”

Same message for my wife and I.

On another topic, is the SPG luxury card available yet?

I got an Amex offer on my personal SPG Amex to spend $3k and earn 1,500 Amex MR points.

Why would any of us care for this promo? It’s the new Marriott points not the valuable spg points!

1.33 SPG per $ on $15k of unbonused spend. I’ll take that all day.

Not targeted, but whatever, this is a sock drawer card now with the reduced everyday earnings.
