Starwood 25k offer going away?
« on: June 12, 2012, 09:25:19 PM »
Just got an email saying the 25k SPG offer is going away after July 8, 2012

Is it true? :(

All credit card offers have a "expiration date" AFAIK.

Hi - Im pretty new to this but I have a question....
I currently have a Amex Blue card which is mostly inactive bec it has horrible perks....  so I would like to transfer this same CC# to a starwood card (this way they dont have to do a new credit review etc). 
Online and over the phone they are only offering a 10K bonus for signing up, but I would like the 25K bonus.
How do I go about doing this?   Can I just talk to a rep over the phone and they can handle this for me?
Thanks for the help.

You won't get any bonus for converting it to a SPG card.

I did this a couple of years ago - I had a delta Amex card but after the free year (of waived activation) I called to cancel the card. The person on the phone told me that I can switch to Hilton and get 10k bonus and keep the same number.  So I did.
Did they change their policy since then?

The last 2 years they had the higher sign up bonus in the mid late summer...
