Free Travel is NOT Too Good to Be True

I have to be honest with you, the opportunity to travel for free for spending money on things you would already be spending money on is absolutely amazing.


So to say I’m excited to share one of my best tips on travel-kept secrets is absolutely true.

Let me tell you about the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express.

Imagine a free night at the Westin Mont Tremblant for an unforgettable New Years Eve. Imagine paying for a couple of nights at Le Parker Meridien or W Union Square in NYC and receiving an extra evening based on the points on your credit card that you accumulated when paying for your day-to-day expenses. You could use those savings for the best seats in the house at a Broadway performance.

Imagine that, and you’ll immediately know why you should be using the SPG Amex Credit Card cause for me, it’s already actually happened. I don’t have to imagine anymore.

And it doesn’t just stop there. There are tons of unique experiences that the card will get you (gotta love Amex and SPG). I’m talking experiences that money can’t buy – think: early access to concert tickets, meet and greets with A-list artists and athletes through SPG Moments, online and in-store shopping deals, travel insurance benefits, and the possibility of a room upgrade at Starwood Hotels.

Seriously, check out some SPG By the Numbers and you’ll start to understand just how much this card can do for you:

– Starwood has 9 hotel brands (St. Regis, Luxury Collection, Le Meridien, W Hotels, Sheraton, Westin, Four Points by Sheraton, Element, and Aloft)
– You can redeem Starpoints to fly on more than 150 airlines, with no blackout dates.
128 beach properties worldwide
160+ spa properties worldwide
5 championship golf courses in North and South America

One of the coolest new opportunities to accumulate Starpoints fast is the ability to earn 10,000 Starpoints (enough for as many as 3 Free Nights depending on where you want to stay) just for referring a friend. That’s big. Even bigger? Your friend gets 20,000 Starpoints just for signing up, so you two can enjoy these epic experiences together.

I’m not here to sell you, that’s not my style. But We’re all about sharing with our readers what we feel is truly Notable – and this credit card definitely is.

Hope to see you in the city or on the slopes soon 😉
