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.

Come on, you can't do better than this. Those 5000 pts worth more than $100.

I am looking for a referral for a biz card. I would like to swap it for a referral for a personal card.

If someone just wants a referral for a personal card I will pay $20 per accepted application. PM me.

Had the 10K SPG Personal before and canceled it. Got in on the 30K Biz card.

Hopefully I can churn the Personal in a month or two for another 30K.

Congrats to those who got in on the two-apps with one combined pull for 60K...that's huge!

Two-browser is only for Citi. Unnecessary for Amex, especially with a personal and a biz.

I am trying to sign in using shorter application format (Fill your current card number so system can get all the info.) and getting this
Our systems are being updated. Please try again later, or call the toll-free number on the back of your card.

Is it just me or what?

Signed up for the business and personal two years ago. Cancelled both cards Prior to renewal. That was probably 13-14 months ago. Can I sign up for both cards again and get the Points?

Signed up for the Amex Blue Card, got approved. Next day, signed up for this card, they pulled a 715 credit score, declined...whats the best thing to say when calling up for reconsideration?

TIA!

Please.

Seriously, that can go a long ways. They have some leeway.

You want to split up your hotel spending since you'll be traveling more often. That's one of the most common excuses, I mean, reasons.
