2500 Bonus Points for Additional SPG Cardholder

FYI, I got a targetted offer yesterday, which said this:

Take your loved ones on vacation even sooner.
Just turn their purchases into Starpoints® by giving them the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.(1) When you add someone to your account, they'll enjoy the same great Card benefits you do, and you'll earn Starpoints for all their eligible purchases. You'll be amazed at how much faster Starpoints can add up. And now, for a limited time, earn 2,500 bonus Starpoints for the first Additional Card you add. (2)

Add as many Additional Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Cards as you like. Each comes with:
No annual fee
The ability to earn Starpoints at the same rate as your Card
Itemized and separated charges on monthly statements for your convenience
The great retail and travel benefits of American Express
Earn Starpoints even faster by adding Cardmembers to your account. Visit americanexpress.com/starwoodbp today.


I called and even though I have an additional cardholder already, I had to get an additional one with this offer in order to qualify. I called and confirmed that it was okay to put myself as another additional cardholder in order to receive the bonus points. Happy Hunting!

I assume you called Amex?

BTW, it was very nice of you to give Beyonce her own card.

If you are able to get the points by giving yourself an additional card, it seems logical that you should also get the points by giving your additional card holder an additional card.

Do you still have the number you called? I got a similar offer from Amex for my HHonors card to get 5,000 points. I would rather have the 2,500 Starwood points if they will let me.

Thumbs up

The link americanexpress.com/starwoodbp that you have provided, i do not see any mentioning of 2500 points. Will that link automatically gives us the bonus points?

Called CS, and it took him awhile to figure out about the bonus points, but he was able to add my mom to my account and processed the 2500 bonus points.

Thanks OP!

I got the e-mail but neglected to see the bonus until pointed out here. I applied for a second card for myself so I can separate out business and personal expenses. Had been thinking about that anyway. 2500 was a good incentive to do it now.

Just call the # on the back of your AMEX and they'll do it for you.

Thanks for the tip! I called the cust. serv. # and they gladly issued my husband and myself and additional card. We will get the extra points when we make our first purchase with each card.

I remember SPG AMEX had a better promotion last year.
for 3 designated months, you got 1.5 x regular pts on whatever you spent.
Hopefully they continue this year
