Wrigley Field Chicago Cubs

My family has enjoyed some amazing experiences for FREE thanks to the bonus points from the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express credit cards!

Like free stuff? I sure do! Here’s an easy way to earn amazing experiences like tickets to baseball games, concerts, music festivals and more!

Add the two Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Cards from American Express to your credit card portfolio to earn up to 58,000 Starpoints (the currency for Starwood Hotels’ customer loyalty program) with their current offers. The cards include:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express – 25,000 point bonus after meeting the $5000 minimum spend, $95 annual fee
  • Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express (personal card) — 25,000 point bonus after meeting the $3000 minimum spend, $95 annual fee

To apply for the above credit cards, please start at the TRAVEL CREDIT CARDS link in the menu above or click on the button below. To find the business card, choose Small Business on the lefthand menu of the Travel Credit Cards link. This allows me to earn a commission — at no cost to you — to help me pay the blogging bills and continue to bring you great content FREE! I sincerely appreciate you taking this step.


We used a bonus from these cards last year not to book hotel rooms but to instead take advantage of the SPG Moments program that allows you to redeem loyalty points for experiences. We attended a Chicago Cubs game in a luxury suite at Wrigley Field FREE and went to see “School of Rock” on Broadway, purchasing 4 tickets for the price of 1! You know how much I love to travel and experience FREE and CHEAPLY, and SPG Moments offers an amazing way to do so!

SPG Moments allows you to either purchase “moments” for a set points price or bid on them through an auction process. I prefer the “set price” options, so I know how much I have to spend and am certain I have purchased the experience!

I’ve put together 9 Amazing Ways to Use Your Starpoints on SPG Moments, starting at just 5000 points per experience!
