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 through the SPG Moments program.

If you add the two Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Cards from American Express to your credit card portfolio, you can earn a BUNCH of Starpoints. SPG recently merged with Marriott Rewards, so you can use your points with either program.

The Starwood Preferred Guest AMEX Cards

The cards include:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express – $95 annual fee
  • Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express (personal card) – $95 annual fee

The Starwood Preferred Guest credit cards are currently offering a welcome bonus of 100,000 points on the business card and 75,000 points on the consumer/personal card. The offers END October 31, 2018.

Complete details about the Starwood Preferred Guest Welcome Bonus Offers

To apply for the above credit cards, please use 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.


How My Family Has Enjoyed SPG Moments

We used welcome offers we earned after signing up for these cards 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 went to a Chicago Cubs game and sat in the SPG luxury suite at Wrigley Field FREE. We also went to see “School of Rock” on Broadway, purchasing 4 tickets for the price of 1! These have been some of my favorite moments created through the hobby of earning and redeeming miles and points 🙂

What Are SPG Moments?

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

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

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!
