My whole family got this email and many readers forwarded it to me, so I assume that it is widely targeted. If you didn’t get it you may want to check your spam filter or contact AMEX regarding “Bonus ID 3425.”

You do need to opt into email communications in order to receive these kinds of promos. You can do this by logging into your AMEX online account and clicking on “update email settings” under account services.

You must spend the $50 in one transaction at Amazon by this coming Monday to qualify!

Here are the promo details:

“Just use your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express at checkout, and you can earn 1,000 bonus Starpoints for a purchase of $50 or more at now through March 31st.[1] That’s in addition to the points you can normally earn for purchases.[2]

No matter which of the millions of items available at you choose, use your Card at checkout to take advantage of the protection, benefits and rewards American Express provides.

(1) To be eligible purchase must be made at between March 18, 2008 and March 31, 2008. A minimum single transaction of $50 with your Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express is required to earn the 1,000 bonus points. Credit will be awarded to your account 6-8 weeks after promotion ends. Offer valid for a single purchase only. Offer is good for solicited Cardmembers only. Charges for payments made via PayPal and other online payment intermediaries do not qualify. Purchases made at IMDb and ShopBop do not apply. Credits for purchase returns will result in a corresponding reversal of the 1,000 bonus points. POID K569:0005. Bonus ID 3425.

I think this goes well with your digital camera and printer deal!


hey dan – i also got the email… maybe post a coupe of things worth around $50 and that way we can make 1050 points 🙂

Also that way we buy it through you and you make some as well…


big deal, you are paying 5 cents a starpoint, what is so good about that?

u can buy 1,000 starpoints from for $35!!

the only difference is that here you will get something for the extra $15.


Schneur, then go buy your starpoints. If you dont appeciate the advice, then be a miserable jerk.. And start your own blog!


Is there any reason in the free printer deal that i cant buy the camera and printer, print out the receipt, and then quickly cancel the camera b/c no upc is required? Even if i can’t cancel the camera i can still return it and get the $70 printer rebate, right? Then i will have a printer and 1,070 starwoods points all for free!


You may be able to do that in order to get a free printer, but the bonus SPG points will be revoked once you get the refund from amazon.

To Schneur: with this you can buy something that you would normally get at a supermarket like for example diapers or baby wipes or whatever you please, and then get a bonus of 1000 SPG point… you arent paying for any starpoint here.


good point all, mikeinmiami wow! did not expect that!

i love the site and am an avid reader for years. just making a point that it is not “cheap”


why would the points be revoked? you’re getting a rebate check, your not getting a refund on your credit card.


Does anyone know if this will work if i I buy something worth $50 but use $45 of gift certificates?


Is this 1 transaction per a credit card. If I split my purchase and charge $50+ x2 will I get 1000 x2?


It’s one bonus per credit card for spending $50 on the credit card from Amazon in one transaction.

I have both the Starwood Business and Personal cards. Can I get 2 * 1000 points if I purchase 2 $50 certificates (one per card)? Even if I never received the ‘solicited’ Email?


If you return the camera, which was your original purchase then the $50+ will be refunded to your CC. As such, the rules of this promo is that if you return the purchse- then the free 1K starpoints will be revoked.


The camera refund would be $16.78, the charge for the printer for $70 is still there.


Just called (I had not received the email, but I checked online and for some reason I had “do not send me email” marked) and was told that I could not get the bonus as it was only for solicited members. 🙁


is the starwood 1000 points promo still on


do i get it automatically or did i need to type in a promotion code? i bought some stuff in 3 seperate transactions from amazon last week without know ing about this.


This deal is long over, the points are just posting now.
