How You Can Get Up To 166K Starpoints With The 35K Amex SPG Offers

American Express recently raised the signup bonus on the Starwood Preferred Guest cards to 35K Starpoints, and in this post I’m going to show you how you can get up to 166K Starpoints with the offers on these cards!  These offers are set to expire on March 30, 2016, so NOW is the time to do this.  Since you can only receive the signup bonus on all American Express cards once per lifetime, you should take advantage of these offers.  For this to work, you will need to work with your spouse or significant other AND it also requires that neither of you have ever had one of the Starwood Preferred Guest cards.

Booking First Class On The A380 With Lufthansa

I figured I would talk today about booking First Class on the A380 with Lufthansa.  I travel to Germany frequently, and Lufthansa is one of my favorite carriers, despite the taxes and surcharges.  Their premium cabin experience is much better than US airlines.  The A380 also gives you the opportunity to fly on the upper deck!

Amex Business Card Bonuses Now Once Per Lifetime

Amex Business card bonuses are now also restricted to ONCE per lifetime!  This is horrible news for many of us.  The language for these offers used to read that if you have not had the card within the previous 12 months you could receive the bonus again, but now that language is missing from all of the business cards.  It states that if you have had the product in the past, that you are not eligible to receive the bonus again.
