Earn 2 Free Nights with Starwood Preferred Guest Card
To qualify for the 2 free hotel nights, you must use your new card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.
The Free Night Awards will be credited to the Basic Card Member’s SPG account within 6-8 weeks after you reach the spend threshold.
Eligible purchases do not include purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents, so you may not qualify for the bonus points if you make certain types of purchases on your card.
The Free Night Awards can be redeemed for any Starwood Category 1–5 hotels or resorts for a standard room for any nights of the week.
The Free Night Awards must be redeemed for stays consumed within 12 months of the Free Night Award being credited to your SPG account.
Basic Card Members should call SPG customer service and mention the American Express 2 Free Night Awards to redeem.
Free Night Awards are combinable and may be added to existing paid or Award stays.
