[Targeted] American Express Personal SPG Spending Bonus ($50/$100 After $1,500/$3,000 Spend)

Offer no longer available, current American Express deals can be found by clicking here.

The Offer

No direct link, targeted offer. Should show when logged in?

  • American Express is offering some SPG personal cardholders spending bonuses. Register by May 30th and earn a $50 statement credit after each $1,500 you spend in eligible purchases on your card through August 10th, 2018. Up to $100
  • Others have the same offer but it’s 7,500 points for every $3,000 in spend up to 15,000 points.
  • Or $125 statement credit for every $10,000 in spend, up to $250 in statement credits
  • See other offers in the comments

Our Verdict

Seems to be a continuation of the same deal, with a new set of targeted people and different registration/spend by dates. This works out to be an 3.3% cash back plus the 1x SPG points per $1 spent you’d normally earn if you spent exactly $1,500 or $3,000. Although keep in mind the spending rates will change on August 1st to 2 Marriott points per $1 spent (currently it’s 3x as 1 SPG = 3 Marriott).

Personally, I saw this in my AMEX account when scrolling through the offers section. Hope that helps

It is an AMEX offer so will be on the credit card. Not much to do with SPG.

I received “Use your Card now through August 10, 2018 and you can earn a $125 statement credit after each $10,000 you spend in eligible purchases on your Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card, up to a $250 statement credit.”

It showed up when I logged in and selected my SPG card (default card on my amex log in is not SPG)

I’m jwpapa2 who reported this in churning DD thread last night. My second AF is coming up in 1.5mo, and I haven’t call them for a retention offer yet. Got 10k points with no spending requirement in March last year when they were handing those out like crazy, so it’s been just over 13 months since I got the retention offer and their clock should have just been reset.

Never been targeted, never seen any useful amex offer

$100 credit wyb $5000, up to $200 credits. I really want to build my SPG/Marriott points, but the transition this summer has me a bit nervous on the value of these points after the changes. Anyone have any insight?

My offer was a $75 statement credit for each $3000 of spend, up to $150 in credits. Would have preferred to get the 7500 points

I’m jwpapa2. It should show up at the top when you log in to your AMEX and also in the AMEX offers list if you are targeted. The theory I heard is that these offers would show up when your card approaches the AF charge date. Mine is coming up in 1.5mo.
