Who knows if the SPG Amex will be around next year, given the merger between Marriott and Starwood. If you don’t have these cards now, it’s time to consider them.
Marriott and Starwood continue to make much faster progress with integration after the announcement of the merger than I expected. After quickly moving to status match and give members the ability to transfer points, Marriott and SPG have another announcement that members are really going to enjoy.
I carry 3 Chase cards in my wallet at all times for a reason. Ultimate Rewards is one of the best currencies out there for earning and redeeming points for award travel. Chase just quietly made Ultimate Rewards better.
Starwood Preferred Guest announced an increase in the sign-up bonus for both the personal and business version of the American Express card to 35,000 points. It’s a limited time offer and represents a really good value.
