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

Deal has expired, view more current American Express offers here.

The Offer

No direct link, targeted offer. Sent via e-mail ‘[name]: Register before 4/30 for an exclusive offer’

  • American Express is offering some SPG personal cardholders spending bonuses. Register by April 30th and earn a $50 statement credit after each $1,500 you spend in eligible purchases on your card through June 30th, 2018. Up to $100

Our Verdict

Works out to be an additional 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. These targeted spending bonuses are common, usually sent out to people who will have their annual fee due during the bonus period. It’s still worth calling reconsideration to see if you can get another offer in addition to this if the annual fee is due during this period.

It’s a bit strange to see a statement credit offer instead of SPG points, but apparently the sign up bonus will be changing to a statement credit instead of SPG points soon anyway.

Don’t rub in the SUB change😤😤

The offer I received was a $125 statement credit after $10,000 in spending. Can be used twice. $40k plus in spending during 2017 on the card. I’ll be taking full advantage before August 1.

Isn’t the end date June 30?

I got a similar offer however it’s a $125 credit for $10k in spend, upto twice. Max of $250 in credits. Mine requires the spend before June 30

My offer is $100 credit for $5k spend, up to 2x for a max of $200 in credit

I also got $125 for $10,000 spend up to two times.

Was this in the app/on the Amex site or via email?


Is this available on the website, or only via targeted email?

doc, i dont want to complain, but u gotta tell us where to look. is this via E-Mail? got subject line so I can search? maybe im just alone in this but additional details would be a huge help for me so I dont go dig thru email then thru the website and then thru my phone app then thru snail mail.

They also offer 7,000 points for $500 spent as a retention offer.

I called in today and got this offer: Spend $500 within one month to get 7,000 Starwood points. They also told me that AF will be issued after 08/01 to existing cardholder.

Looks like it’s on their site, no longer email. $100 after $1500 spend in the first three months. What happened to the bonus points though?

Anybody who has hit $1,500 with this offer seen the $50 credit yet?

Have the statement credits for this offer posted for anybody yet? I passed the $20,000 threshold ages ago but figured they would wait till after the date specified in the terms (July 17th) to post credits. I wish it had worked like typical amex offers where you get a confirmation as soon as you meet the criteria and have thecredit post shortly thereafter.

Credit of $125 posted on July 18 for $10,000 spend. No idea when that had to be spent.
