If you have the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG for short) American Express Card, you can earn  1,000 bonus Starpoints per additional cardmember (max 2 additional cardmembers).  To earn the bonus, the additional cardmember must have a total eligible spend of $150 within the first 90 days of their cardmembership.  SSN should not be required (there is a line for it, but I left it blank).

I’ve signed Tony up as an additional cardmember for both my personal and business cards, and I plan on adding myself for each of his — for a total of 4,000 bonus Starpoints.

Let Me Refer You

I’ve mentioned in the past that the SPG is my all-time favorite rewards credit card in my wallet.  It helped me get to Hawaii for free!  Tony and I have accumulated enough Starpoints for another free trip (airfare and hotel), but we’re probably saving those points for our honeymoon.

If you still haven’t signed up for the SPG American Express Card, and you would like to, contact me. I just need your full name and email addy to send the referral email.  You get 10,000 Starpoints with your first purchase on the Card, and 15,000 bonus Starpoints when you spend $15,000 in 6 months. I get 5,000 points for referring you. {Thanks!}

There is a $65 annual fee, which is waived the first year. This is the ONLY credit card that I find worth the annual fee and have kept beyond the first year.  25,000 Starpoints is enough for a round-trip domestic ticket on most airlines, or 2 free nights at the Westin Maui Resorts & Spa or any other Category 5 hotel.
