The Starwood American Express card just increased their sign up bonus to 35,000 points!

This is their highest sign up bonus; the only other time they offered it was last spring for a few weeks. The standard sign up bonus is 25,000 points and they usually bump it up to 30,000 points sometime during the summer.

The offer is good for both the personal and the business card, but it’s only good through the April 5.

Starwood points are some of my favorites. We redeemed the sign up bonuses for free hotels on our Disney World trip and for free hotels on multiple holiday ski trips.

It’s time to celebrate Free Money Friday.

How to Get Your 35,000 Point Sign Up Bonus
