New SPG Luxury card out today- Who's biting?
 
NEW Amex SPG Luxury Card

Much anticipated Luxury Card out today, with 100K bonus. Nothing to sneeze at but certainly would have been more impressive a few months ago.

Any takers? I'm on the fence.

I received the offer for 30,0000 extra points on my SPG personal card and I will use it until I reach the required 15K spend. 100,000 on the Luxury Card offer good until October 31st.

Already lifetime Gold and I don't think the going for platinum is worth the extra spend. I have similar or better benefits on my CSR and my AAdvantage Executive cards, but I'm somewhat of a sucker for these luxury cards.

Just keep in mind the trickery evil marriott is employing on this card. You might think: "oh awesome I get a free night up to 50k points. So that means I will get next year a night at that awesome ritz carlton cat 6."

WRONG. Next year they will introduce that off peak and peak pricing so most likely you are going to get a cat 5 peak hotel (same cat free night you get this year with a $95 AF marriott card)

Don't know what it does any better/different for us that already have that status in LT.

Now IF everyday spend was 3 points per $, that would change things...

I've received an offer, I just haven't accepted it. Could they be that devious?

And...I'm not eligible for the bonus offer based on my history with American Express. I believe my only Amex cards in the past were the SPG business which I kept open for 3 years, and the SPG personal which I did close when the annual fee came around. I currently have a Blue card.
At least it was nice of them to let me know before the credit check.

I dont understand why you wouldn't be eligible? Are current SPG personal cards not eligible?

Does anyone know if you upgrade vs apply for new gets the bonus? Thanks

Amex has a new algorithm that assesses, prior to them doing a hard pull, whether you are "eligible" (using not only the written terms of the offer, but also their undisclosed internal assessment supposedly based on your history with them-- i.e. how many cards you have, how many you have had, your spending patterns,etc.). If it determines you are not, it gives you the option to just cancel the application.

Not thrilled. I have Amex SPG personal card and am SPG Lifetime Gold (Elite) too. Don't find the need to upgrade or apply the new card for bonus. The earning power is the same as my SPG personal card. I have CSR and Citi TYP for travel and dining (worldwide) and far more. I have CSR for PP lounge access. I hardly dine or shop at hotels. I am also a sucker for metal cards, but I guess that I pass...

ahh makes sense.. do you think having just 1 SPG personal card will negate me? I just dont know if I should apply for new or upgrade. I dont think the upgrade would get the 100K bonus

Does that mean you have until 8/26 to apply and get the bonus even if you have had the other stuffs?

I have the SPG personal amex and the newer marriott card - just applied for and got this one without any warning about no bonus.

As I am aware of the new algorithm, this card might be different, especially for current SPG card holders. The offer exclusion mostly include other issuers (Chase), instead of AMEX itself. So the system might just think the person card triggers the no offer again algorithm and deliver the ineligibility message. Just my guess though, not sure how AMEX IT works out...

What SPG number are people putting on the application? The old one? the new one? the marriott number?

I guess any new, combined account number, either Marriott or SPG would do. They are all the same.
