Bigger Is Not Always Better

Generally, the axiom that the more you buy the better value you get holds true except in this case. Bizarrely the higher earning offers a worse return than the lower earning promos.

Interestingly you get the best value of 1.33 points per dollar after spending $1,500, and the more you spend the lower your per dollar earning rates, which makes you wonder whether Amex and SPG want people to be spending larger amounts on their cards with this promo!

Our Take

While the mechanism of this promo may seem a little odd, it is still well worth checking out, especially when you consider how valuable and flexible Starpoints are. Ultimately whether you take up this promo will depend on how lucrative your return will be, and whether you are willing to shift a significant amount of spending over to the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express to maximize your earnings.
