Do you have the card formerly known as the American Express Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) card? That card is now known as the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card (consumer/personal card). The old SPG Amex card earned 3 Marriott points per dollar, it had since suffered a devaluation to 2 Marriott points per dollar. So if you had that old card, here’s an offer that’s available for a limited time.

What’s the Marriott Bonvoy Amex Card limited time offer

  • Earn 25,000 bonus points after you spend $25,000 in qualifying purchases on your registered Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card
  • You have until April 7, 2019 to register.
  • Click here to register. (Link courtesy of Doctor of Credit and DansDeals)
  • This is valid between the time you complete registration and December 31, 2019
  • Earn up to 100,000 maximum amount of bonus points (up to 4x at $25,000 = $100,000 spend)
    • Spend $25,000 through 12/31 – earn 25,000 bonus points
    • Spend $50,000 through 12/31 – earn 50,000 bonus points
    • Spend $75,000 through 12/31 – earn 75,000 bonus points
    • Spend $100,000 through 12/31 – earn 100,000 bonus points
  • Spending will only count after you register (must register by April 7, 2019)
  • You are not eligible to register for this offer if your Card Account was opened after January 24, 2019. 
  • See Terms and Conditions below

As seen in Doctor of Credit:

By spending in exact $25k increments, you land up back to the old SPG Amex reward rates, e.g. if you spend $25k you’ll get 75k total points (50k from regular earn + 25k from bonus) which is 3x Marriott points per dollar, the equivalent of 1x SPG point per dollar. Depending on how you value these points, it could become a nice option for everyday spend.

This is the closest we’ve seen to the way the old SPG Amex program worked. So if you were a fan of the 3:1 value with the old program, will you take advantage of this offer? Do you see yourself spending up to $100K before the end of the year to maximize this offer? Let us know.

Oh, and speaking of Bonvoy, don’t forget to read this latest entry:

Terms and Conditions

Registration for this offer is required. You must register by April 7, 2019 to participate in this offer. Starting from the time you complete registration through December 31, 2019 (“Purchase Period”),

  • if you make eligible purchases on your Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card that total $25,000 or more, you will receive 25,000 bonus points (“First Purchase Requirement”).
  • If in that Purchase Period you make an additional $25,000 in eligible purchases on your Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card (for a total of $50,000 or more), you will receive an additional 25,000 bonus points (“Second Purchase Requirement”).
  • If in that Purchase Period you make an additional $25,000 in eligible purchases on your Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card (for a total of $75,000 or more), you will receive an additional 25,000 bonus points (“Third Purchase Requirement”).
  • If in that Purchase Period you make an additional $25,000 in eligible purchases on your Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card (for a total of $100,000 or more), you will receive an additional 25,000 bonus points (“Fourth Purchase Requirement”). You may earn a maximum of 100,000 bonus points with this offer.

Bonus points will be posted to your Bonvoy member account 10-12 weeks after you reach each of the Purchase Requirements. Purchases may fall outside of the Purchase Period (and therefore not be eligible for the bonus points) in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped.) This offer is only available to the Basic Card Member; however, eligible purchases made by Additional Card Members will contribute to the Purchase Requirements. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of traveler’s checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of any cash equivalents. Eligible purchases to meet the Purchase Requirements are for goods and services minus returns and other credits.

To receive the bonus points, your Card Account must not be cancelled or past due at the time of fulfillment. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time. The bonus points you may earn during the Purchase Period as part of this offer are in addition to any other points you may get from using your Card. For questions regarding your Card Account, please call the number on the back of your Card.

You are not eligible to register for this offer if your Card Account was opened after January 24, 2019. This is an exclusive offer only for Marriott BonvoyTM American Express® Card Members who receive this email and is not transferable.
