from the site:
I got word that American Express would be bringing back the 30,000 point signup bonus for the Starwood co-branded credit card beginning Tuesday, August 7th.

Two summers ago American Express introduced a 30,000 point signup bonus on their Starwood cards for the first time. They repeated it in 2011.

30,000 points may not seem like a ton in a world of 50,000 and 100,000 point bonuses. But Starwood points are the single most valuable currency there is, in large measure due to their flexibility.

TRUE
been waiting on the 30k bonus to return.

If you have had this card in the past 12 months, you will not be able to get this current offer. However, if you have had it before that, you can go ahead and apply again to get this bonus. If you have had a personal card (or have), you can get the business card and get the bonus. Or vice versa. The SPG card is a great card and has exceptional value so I would move on this!



The Offer:

FOR A LIMITED TIME: earn up to 30,000 bonus points -- 10,000 with your first purchase and another 20,000 when you spend $5000 within the first 6 months of Cardmembership - enough for a weekend getaway

The business and personal offers will be going away by September 3rd and 4th, respectively, according to what AMEX has sent with their links.

Highlights:

These cards have great points + cash payment options that stretch their worth.

You earn 25,000 airline miles when you transfer 20,000 starpoints to a miles program partner.

Flights and nights costs 60,00 starpoints for five free nights in category 3 hotel or resort plus 50,000 airline miles.

Flights and nights ii costs 70,000 starpoints for five free nights in category 4 hotel or resort plus 50,000 airline miles

if you get both personal and business you would have enough starpoints, after minimum spending, for either of those flights and nights options.

Downside:

Not best card for travel abroad: There are foreign transaction fees of 2.7% and no emv chip.

Basic earn rate: Only earn bonus starpoints from spending at hotels and not for everyday purchases like the citi hilton reserve

CORRECTION ap says you earn 1 point for every dollar spent no matter where

Application & Review
After applying you can instantly check your approval status online [americanexpress.com] or by calling (800) 297-3276.

You can also have expedited deliveryFrown800) 297-3276.

But transfer to LAN is 1:2!

Plus 1:1 with TONS of other airlines, plus 5k bonus for every 20,000 Starpoints.

United Miles you want to stick with Ultimate Rewards.

But you can transfer to US Airways at 1:1 with occasional bonuses (they had 50% transfer bonus earlier this year). You will have to book over the phone, but any flights you can find on United's award site (Star Alliance flights) can be booked with US Airways miles. PLUS, you can get a r/t business class ticket to North Asia for 90,000 miles on US Airways - the best value for that region!

"Reconsideration line and negotiate with them about getting that SPG AMEX Personal (866) 314-0237"

this number sucks. I got some desi who said she was powerless to approve applications & couldn't transfer me to somebody with juice.

anybody got a direct line to an actual credit analyst?

I got my blue card a month ago and applied this card today and got approved instantly. Ps. My credit score is ~780.
