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.
