    Ideally, a couple should get one of each AX card (personal and business), and then refer the other person for the other card. That way, the second card would each get 35K SPG pts (5K referral + 30K bonus on the card).

    A household can then pool the pts, and have 130K SPG pts to use! (Or 150K SPG pts with the spend on each card.)

    Redeeming 140K SPG pts under "Nights&Flights" yields 100K airline miles and 10 nights in a Category 4 property. Obv, this is an excellent value...

    I found the answer to my own question on the amex website for my account . After clicking to refer a friend.

    Your friend will receive an offer for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express:
    Up to 30,000 bonus Starpoints®, 10,000 bonus Starpoints after first purchase, then 20,000 bonus Starpoints after spending $5,000 in the first 6 months of Cardmembership. (4)

    As lotso-bear suggests (above), I will refer my wife. Anyone else need one?

    Do the people referred get any bonus or is it just the people that send the referral to the friend? I.e., I plan to sign up for the SPG card next week - if someone refers me would I get a bonus as well or just the person that referred me? Thanks!

    No bonus for the person applying. You just get the 30k offer.
    The person sending you the link gets 5k. Now I'd you would like... I can send you a link so that I get 5k :)

    Awesome. Applied for both the personal and business Starwood cards the day the promotion came out. :) Definitely lots of press for this coming from bloggers.

    I would make sure to keep a record of your initial application. I signed up for a similar 25k point promotion and Amex didn't credit me the 15k SPG points after meeting the spend requirement.

    Can you get the bonus again after two years of the original application? The account was closed a few months back.

    From what I've read on blogs it's 12m since the close. So I would believe no, you won't get it
