Just about anyone who cares about points knows SPG points are some of the most valuable travel points you can both collect and spend. Some of the best promos for SPG stays require you to be registered for before you will get credit and the 1,000 bonus weekend promo, which is running worldwide through August 31, 2015.
There are a bunch of others you may or may not have missed so let’s run them down this weekend.
SPG Personal card <–LINK. This card has recently lowered the amount of spend needed to get the bonus points for getting the card. Keep in mind, this, like all the personal AMEX cards right now, are one bonus EVER, that is, in your life!
SPG business card <–LINK. Once again a great way to get bonus SPG points for your business spending. Not only do you get SPG points but you get stay credits toward elite status for holding the card each year. Keep in mind, this, like all the business AMEX cards right now, you need to not have had the card / bonus for 365+ days before you can get it again (that is if you have or had the card in the past).
UBER bonus points. I love love love this one. I use UBER all the time and to get so many bonus points when I am taking an UBER and then EVEN MORE when at the same time at an SPG stay, I am winning in bonus point land.
Membership Reward bonus points with UBER payments. OK maybe not specifically an SPG point bonus, but if you are already earning bonus SPG points with the UBER promo why not earn also extremely valuable Membership Rewards points when you are paying for your UBER trip.
Crossover Reward bonus points with Delta. I am just SHOCKED when I fly and ask elites if they have signed up for Crossover Rewards and they say no. Uh, why? You are not only getting some very nice SPG benefits when you stay at an SPG hotel, but by doing nothing else other than signing up getting bonus SPG points for every dollar (MQD dollar that is) that you spend on a Delta ticket. Who does not love easy and valuable bonus points?
Make a green choice. I can live with making my bed and not having my room cleaned for a day to get 250-500 bonus SPG points. You can always still ask for fresh towels so not a big deal if that is important to you. I always request and put out my ‘Make a green choice’ tag on my door (be sure they note that in your record at the front desk as well).
Bottom line on all of these is they really are not hard and a great way to really stack up the bonus points for doing things you are already doing in your personal and business travels. – René
PS – Don’t forget TIME IS RUNNING OUT to get the 60,000 point limited time < — LINK Delta AMEX offer!
