For those of you that live under bridges (and yet aren’t internet trolls) i’d like to alert you to the Amazing Annual SPG 30K Bonanza!!!
I try not to put links into posts because I think people might click first and ask questions later, so I will just talk about this card, whip you into a frenzy, and then offer you the chance to play the house.
In my (rarely humble) opinion SPG points are the most valuable travel currency in the points and miles world. Annoyingly they are hard to earn, however the SPG Amex signup bonus does offer a decent way to gather a lot of points fairly easily. The standard annual signup bonus for the SPG Amex is 25K (after meeting spend requirements) however, each year, without fail, they have bumped it to 30K and every time it happens you would think that Christ has risen again, and commanded Office Depot to stock Vanilla Reloads, to be sold only in blocks of $10,000, and only to holders of an Ink card.
I want YOU to have this referral
This 30K offer is targeted at the peasants who do not own a blog. Not that it stops well known bloggers from pushing it. If you want to refer a friend, (or a complete stranger) to the SPG card they can get the 30K offer, and for each one you convert you get to earn 5K SPG. In order to refer them you have to hold a card, and you should have recently received an email about this, if you haven’t here is the referral link. This seems to jump to a ‘business page’ so I’d use it only as a backup if you haven’t got that email.
Please, don’t let it go to your head. The power trip that comes from earning 5K SPG can be overwhelming, and I don’t want you to lose yourself in it.
Conga’s are so dodgy
A conga line is supposed to be a series of replies in the comments where you use the previous persons link and then share your own… however I have to say from having set one up on The Forum that I think people just put their own link up there and don’t click on others…. therefore, in order to address this gaming of the system I would like to suggest a new idea.
If you would like to promote your referral link in the comments please do, and perhaps make it a bit more fun and interesting by telling us why you should get it rather than the next guy. Other ways to promote your comment are encouraged, such as poetry, however, please do not use twitter ads to draw traffic in as that would not be in the spirit of the game.
If you don’t have the card already you can’t play
It’s a referral thing – I’m sorry… if you don’t have the card you need to get it (from one of the cool people in the comments) then once you have it you can join in.
If you are a blogger you can’t play
Self explanatory. If there is any confusion just hit retweet or share on twitter, it won’t kill you grumpy bumps.
In case it didn’t make any sense, I want readers who hold the card to put in their referrals to this post, and allow people to share with one another. I hope that you can use the platform to benefit – the new cardholder gets a great signup bonus, and you score 5K points. Use the comments here to connect with your fellow readers and help one another out.
