Today is the last day to take advantage of a great upgrade offer for the Amex SPG Luxury card. The offer could be as high as 100K, or nothing if you have my luck. To check what offer you get, you can go to the card application page. The best offer available is the same as the public signup bonus on the card, which also expires today. The offer is for existing SPG personal cardholders, so log in and then visit the link. Keep in mind that the card has a $450 annual fee, but also comes with plenty of perks.
- Upgrade and earn 100,000 bonus points after you use your new Card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months. Offer ends 10/31/2018.
More opportunities to earn points
- For each dollar of eligible purchases charged to your Card, you can earn:
- 6X points at participating SPG and Marriott Rewards hotels
- 3X points at U.S. restaurants and on flights booked directly with airlines
- 2X points on other eligible purchases
More value and luxury perks to enhance their stay
- Up to $300 in statement credits each Card renewal year for purchases at participating SPG and Marriott Rewards hotels
- Annual Night Award (redemption level at or under 50,000 points) every year after your Card account anniversary*
- Automatic Gold Elite Status and the ability to earn Platinum Elite Status after spending $75,000 on the Card in a calendar year
Coming in 2019: Each calendar year you can receive credit for 15 nights towards the next level of Elite status. Limit one 15 Elite Night Credit per Marriott Loyalty Program member.
More benefits to enhance their travel experience
- $100 Global Entry or $85 TSA Precheck fee credit
- Priority Pass Select membership to allow Card Members to enroll and access the 1,000+ airport lounges across the globe within the Priority Pass network
- Complimentary Boingo Wi-Fi
- No foreign transaction fees
If you get the 100K offer, it’s worth going for it in my opinion. It will save you a hard pull and it matches the current signup bonus, so you’re not losing out. On top of that, existing spend would also count towards Platinum Elite status (HT: View from the Wing). Check to see if you received the offer. Some people who had the 100K upgrade offer before, are no longer seeing it, so if you get it to pull up, then go for it.
