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.

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