The Starwood American Express 30,000 point signup offer is scheduled to be pulled at 9am Eastern on September 5. It’s the biggest signup bonus offer I’ve seen for the card (which has been around twice in the past), when I first got this card I received no signup bonus for it.
For just the next 24 hours, the offer is:
- 10,000 bonus points after first purchase
- 20,000 more points after $5000 in spend within 6 months
- No fee the first year ($65 thereafter, which is lower than most airline co-branded cards
This has been my consistent go-to card for over a decade, for all of the spending that isn’t generating significant bonuses on other credit cards. It’s my everyday choice, and the very first card I recommended as best way back in 2002 when I started this blog.
Starwood points remain the most valuable currency to this day — whether for redeeming on hotel stays (and their cash and points awards really stretch points to get the most out of them) or transferring to airline miles with the largest array of frequent flyer program partners.
I had intended to make a final reminder last week on the offer but since I learned that the links will still be live for about a day longer than I had expected it seemed worth flagging that if you haven’t gotten in on this yet then there’s actually still (a little bit of) time.
