[Targeted] 15,000 bonus Starpoints for 15,000 in spend on your SPG Business Amex
Thanks to Doctor of Credit, I learned I was targeted for an offer even before American Express notified me. The offer will net me 15,000 bonus Starpoints if I spend $15,000 on my Starwood Preferred Guest (Business) American Express card by December 31, 2017.
There have been a few previous offers (if I recall they offered 10,000 bonus points for $10,000 in spend) but was never targeted.
This is a stellar offer if your business can meet the spending requirements, because Starpoints are super valuable (I value them at at about 2.5 cents each), meaning you’ll earn an effective minimum 5% cash back on your $15,000 in purchases. Remember that SPG Starpoints can now be transferred to Marriott points (1 SPG gets you 3 Marriott) and that Starpoints can also be transferred to JAL and Asiana (no other points do) which have some stellar redemption opportunities.
My confirmation email says: …use your Card from now through December 31st, 2017 to take advantage of this special offer, and earn 30,000 Starpoints® or more after making $15,000 in qualifying purchases* by December 31st, 2017.
