SPG Amex Card Now, or wait?
Amex has sent me a targeted offer for 30K spg points for getting the new card.
I would accept, given the low $95 annual fee, but was wondering if people think a more lucrative offer will come in August, and more importantly, will SPG airline transfers remain unchanged for the rest of the year?
Once the new program goes live on Aug 1, all SPG points convert to Marriott at 1:3. Airline transfer ratios remain the same though, and new airlines are being added since Marriott had partners that SPG didnt have.
Not sure about the possibility of a more lucrative offer though.
I think that 30K sign-up is the biggest bonus we ever see with SPG so I’d take it.
