When new perks were added & changes were made to the Amex SPG credit card I wondered if the $30 fee increase was worth it.
Some positive new perks were now added but I wasn’t so sure that they were things I’d actually pay for. The new benefits went live a couple of weeks back and with them came increased 30K signup offers for new members.
Besides the SPG Amex cards no longer having foreign transaction fees, a key addition was the inclusion of free Boingo internet around the world.
For those of you that currently have the SPG Amex- personal and/ or business cards, you can sign up for a free Boingo membership, good for up to four devices.
I signed up for mine just before heading off on our current trip around the Middle East. So, if you have either SPG card and would like free Boingo internet, you’ll need to add your card details to register for your account.
Here is how you register for your free Boingo membership:
Checking to see if your card is eligible will take about a minute. All you need to do is input your Amex credit card # at the link below.
When you see that your card is eligible, the page will change and show an image saying Congratulations! You’re Eligible.
Next you’ll fill in the fields asking for your information like name, e-mail, create user name and password.
When you’re all done, the last thing you should do to make Boingo easier to use is download the Boingo Wi-Finder App for your devices. If you don’t download the app you can still log-in using your username and password.
