Starwood

Now earn 7,500 Starpoints when you refer your Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) American Express card to a friend

The standard referral bonus has been 5,000 Starpoints for as long as I can remember but they’ve recently bumped it up to 7,500 Starpoints.

It’s a good time to refer friends to either flavor of the card that they have never had simply because the card is almost certainly going away for good next year. Amex bonuses are one time only per lifetime.

While we have seen this bonus as high as 35,000 Starpoints, we don’t know that it will come back before the card goes away.

The signup bonus of 25,000 points can be converted to Marriott Rewards at 1:3 yielding 75,000 Marriott points and your referral is worth 22,500 Marriott points.

You can earn up to 55,000 Starpoints in a year from referrals.  You will need to sign in to your Amex Refer a Friend account (via the Amex website) to send a referral.

If you’ve never had the SPG Business card, I’d very much appreciate you using my own referral link 🙂
