Best Ever Starwood American Express Signup Offer

The Starwood American Express remains my credit card of choice for most purposes, and there’s now a best-ever offer worthy of my ducking into the Thai Airways lounge in Osaka in order to post it — 10,000 points with first purchase and another 15,000 bonus points for spending $15,000 on the card within 6 months.

That spending bonus is all gravy, since 10,000 points alone is the usual signup bonus. And as always, first year of the card remains free ($30 thereafter).

  1. Thanks for the info. Now tell me the wining lottery ticket number? Ok may be not. My annual spending is around 15k. Any suggestions on how to do it in six months.

  2. Thanks buddy, got the card.

    So if I spend 15k in the next 6 months I’ll have 40k miles right? 10k + 15k (for spending 15k) and 15k (bonus miles for spending 15k).

  3. You are right. 40K miles in six months. Actually more than that if you convert in two blocks of 20K each, making it 50k miles in all. One of the best offers so far.
