An update: the offer is down to 25000 points, so its not one of my top picks at the moment.
For a limited time, there is an opportunity to get 30000 SPG points as a sign-up bonus, instead of 25000, which is the regular offer. I value SPG point at around 1.50 cents each (yes, you read that right, another post on that later) , so the bonus is worth 390 dollars, well above my benchmark.
I have been waiting for this, as I am trying to beef up my AAdvantage account balance (SPG points transfer to AAdvantage miles), to hopefully treat my husband to a business class redemption from USA to Europe. He is a big guy, and would be much more comfortable, having more legroom. The rest of us will have to suffer in economy.
