For those who have been under a rock for the past two days, Starwood is offering its biggest sign-up bonus ever for their American Express credit cards – 35,000 each Starpoints for the personal and business accounts. Since these points can be transferred to 34 airline partners, these are some of the most lucrative points out there. Yes, there was recently a devaluation in how to use the points for hotels, but imagine the possibilities (Dan from Dansdeals.com has done that).
I recently got each of the cards for 30K Starpoints each which is their regular annual deal. This bonus is incredible and you can even refer others for it to get 5K more points for yourself.
In addition to that current deal, The Points Guy reports that Starwood has an annual promotion with Major League Baseball where you can play daily and potentially receive prizes like thousands of Starpoints and/or tickets to the World Series games in 2016. You don’t have to have the credit cards to enter but why not get them anyway?
