With Spring break right around the corner, I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling up for a nice getaway, even if it’s just a quick staycation. I’m excited to announce that I have teamed up with American Express as an Ambassador for its Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card. If you are a rewards junkie like me, you’ll love this Card — especially if you sign up now through April 5, 2017, because you can earn up to 35K Starpoints!
WHAT IS THE STARWOOD PREFERRED GUEST FROM AMERICAN EXPRESS CREDIT CARD?
The SPG Amex Credit Card allows you to rack up Starpoints that you can redeem for reward nights at hotels and resorts in the SPG Program, as well as complimentary premium wi-fi access. Additionally, the Card doesn’t incur any foreign exchange fees, allowing Card Members to truly enjoy worry-free international travel.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
New card members who sign up now and until April 5, 2017 can earn up to 35,000 bonus Starpoints when they meet the minimum purchase requirements:

WHERE CAN I USE IT?
There are a plethora of participating hotels in the SPG program. Whether you enjoy traveling locally or venturing off to new places, this card will come in handy. Some of my favorite locations that are part of the program include Westin Hotels & Resorts, Le Méridien, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, and one of my go-to hotels in Hollywood — The W. Have another hotel or resort in mind? Check out their full list of participating hotels.
This past weekend, David and I decided it’d be fun to play tourist in our own city. We started our adventure at the W Hollywood. This is one of my favorite places to “escape” to because it’s in a central spot. And did I mention that their lobby is totally Insta-worthy?! For those new to the Hollywood area, there are plenty of fun things to see and do in the vicinity. Of course, there’s the infamous Hollywood Boulevard where all the hustle and bustle happens. If you’re up for a 15 minute drive, the Griffith Observatory is worth checking out. This iconic locale features a gorgeous overlook of Los Angeles.
Where in the world are you dying to visit?
