A strong ratio of rewards to spend requirements/annual fee, and redeemable at some of the most luxurious hotel properties in the world. Great for vacation travelers.
An amazing card for anyone who spends more than 20 nights a year at an SPG property, the SPG Amex gives you 25,000 SPG points after you spend $3k in 3 months with no annual fee in the first year, $95/year after.
In the interests of disclosure, I'll mention that I get a referral bonus if you apply here, so thanks!
