SPG Amex 1,000 bonus points for two nights July 30 to Aug 30 and possibly free Boingo wi-fi on the ground

SPG American Express card members have changes coming August 11.

  • Annual fee increase from $65 to $95.
  • No foreign transaction fees.
  • free Starwood Hotels in-room premium internet access.
  • free Boingo hotspot WiFi access after you create a Boingo American Express Preferred Plan account. (Note: my SPG American Express card was ineligible for this free benefit when I submitted my SPG Amex card number for a free account. Seems odd since information in SPG email and Amex site states Boingo free access is a benefit of the SPG American Express card.)

Here are SPG Amex card member FAQs about August 11 changes.

  1. my SPG isn’t eligible either – I’m hypothesizing its bc the annual fee reset in July – prior to the $95 increase in Aug. In guessing that once we pay the $95 NEXT year, then we’ll be eligible …

  2. The email says the changes are coming on August 11th, so maybe it won’t let you sign up for Boingo until that date.
