Update: Offers for the Starwood Amex cards have changed. Visit these links to see the current offers for the Starwood business and personal cards.

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about a great sign-up bonus for the Starwood Amex card- 30,000 points as long as you spend $1,000 in the first three months. The deadline to apply was July 6, but it has just been extended to July 31.

(Note- I am NOT getting paid by American Express for advertising this. I just firmly believe this is a great deal for my followers).

I can’t reiterate enough how much of a good deal this is and how valuable Starwood points are in the scheme of the mileage earning world. This is a perfect card and opportunity for someone who wants to get serious about accruing miles.

If you don’t believe me, check out Brad’s Deals– a popular deal blog that has been featured on the Today Show and in USA Today. They outline 10 reasons why this card makes sense (Note: number three is a different sign-up bonus. The links I provided are an even better deal).

Reminder- you can apply for both personal and business credit cards.

Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express

There’s no telling how much longer these cards will be around and available for new applications because of the Marriott takeover, so now might just be the perfect time to apply. Apart from hotel redemptions, you can transfer Starpoints to over 30 airline partners, and now also transfer points from Starwood to Marriott Rewards at a 1:3 ratio, opening up even more redemption options.
