15% bonus on SPG Amex

Just got this email. As per T&C, apparently a targeted offer.

Dear THUNDERROAD,

From August 15 — September 15, 2007, you can earn 15% more Starpoints on every eligible purchase you make with your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. Enroll now and enter RSVP Code XXXXXXXX to start earning your bonus Starpoints today.

Get closer to your dream vacation with virtually every purchase. Pay with your Card to earn 15% more Starpoints that you can redeem for free nights at Starwood hotels and resorts or airline miles on over 30 major airlines.(1) And with no blackout dates or restrictions, you can go whenever you want — now sooner rather than later.(2)

Enroll now at americanexpress.com/starpoints9 and enter RSVP Code XXXXXXXXX

P.S. Earn an upgrade to Gold Preferred Guest® status when you spend $30,000 in a calendar year, and gain access to larger Starpoints bonuses, automatic room upgrades, and more.(3)

Terms & Conditions
This offer is non-transferable and is valid for solicited Cardmembers only. Enrollment is required. In addition to earning two Starpoints for each U.S. dollar of Eligible Spending charged on your Card account at Starwood-branded hotels and resorts then participating in the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program, and at stand-alone retail establishments and online stores that, in each case, are wholly owned by Starwood® Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., and one Starpoint for all other Eligible Spending, a 15% bonus will be posted to your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card account for a maximum bonus of 7,500 Starpoints. "Eligible Spending" includes purchases of goods or services, which purchases have not been returned or otherwise rescinded, and are not subject to a credit; it does NOT include fees, Finance Charges, Cash Advances (including the use of checks, line activators, automated teller machines, or other means of accessing your account), Balance Transfers, or adjustments to your account. We reserve the right not to award any Starpoints® for transactions we determine are not made with the good faith intention of consuming the item charged. To receive bonus Starpoints, your Card account must be open and in good standing. Bonus Starpoints earned via this promotion will be posted to your Starwood Preferred Guest account 6-8 weeks after September 15, 2007. For a list of participating airlines, transfer ratios, and full program details, go to www.spg.com.

Those of you with AMEX account online access (user name and password, so you don't nees an RSVP code to see if you can register for this promo) might want to "check" if you are targeted specifically in the following order:

https://www109.americanexpress.com/d...pe=starpoints8

https://www109.americanexpress.com/d...pe=starpoints7

https://www109.americanexpress.com/d...pe=starpoints9

40 > 25 > 15.

I got the 25% offer. My Amex spending is typically $1k-3K per month, mostly at Starwood hotels, but also some plane tickets and Costco.
