SPG Cardholders: Take Advantage of Your Friends

Got a Starwood Preferred Guest credit card? Want a friend to get one? Here’s a little chance to pick up something extra.

5,000 SPG Points to Refer A Friend

Starwood American Express

Banks know that their best advocates are often their current cardholders. That’s why they are often willing to refer you for referring a friend. Starwood will give you 5,000 SPG points when you refer a friend to the card.*

In this case, you get a karma bonus because the SPG American Express is actually an excellent card. In addition to some benefits at Starwood hotels, you earn a point per dollar spent (with a bonus at Starwood and Marriott hotels).  One SPG point is worth 2.5-3 cents toward the cost of your hotel room, so these points are more valuable than your run of the mill rewards. The 5,000 points you earn are worth ~$150, while your friend can earn up to 35,000 SPG points.

 


*Beginner’s Hint: Truthfully, it doesn’t have to be a Starwood Amex card. Most credit cards have some sort of referral program. All it takes is a web link or a phone call. But if you don’t want to refer a friend or need a card yourself, why not get it through the Credit Cards for Charity page? All proceeds from that page go to charity.

    Speaking of referrals, you can enter for a chance for 3 free nights at a W Hotel to extend your SPG Stay. Contest through April at http://swee.ps/DbnclPtSa . Depending on the property you may be able to book 4th night and get another night free with the 5th night free.
