It looks like, Amex is trying to get more accounts under its belt, before the merger of Marriott and Starwood. Amex may also be trying to burn all the Starpoints it has purchased from Starwood, before they can no longer be useful.
Through 06/15, you can get 10,000 Starpoints for every successful referral of Starwood Preferred Guest credit card from American Express or Starwood Preferred Guest Business credit card from American Express.
Note that, you are only eligible for 55,000 Starpoints for each calendar year per each card.
If you have either one of these cards, you can generate your referral links through this link.
If you do not have any friends/family members that can refer you, you could use our referral links.
My Referral Links
Should you refer?
If any one of your friend/family member is looking to get the card, you should absolutely refer and maximize (You can combine Starpoints, as long as members share the same address for at least 30 days.
But, If someone is applying, just because of the higher referral bonus, it may be wise to wait, as the 35K bonus Starpoints offer may be available again.
This promotion is valid through June 15, 2016 and you are still limited to earning 55,000 Starpoints through referrals.
Disclaimer: If you apply for this card through the referral link, I earn 10,000 Starpoints for each approved application (up to 55,000 Starpoints)
