What’s the deal with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card?
The American Express Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card offers 25,000 bonus Starpoints when you spend $3,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. 25,000 points can get you a great deal like a free round-trip flight to Brazil with LANPASS or 12 nights in a luxurious hotel in Punta Cana.
The annual fee is waived for the first year and is then $95. 2015 saw new perks introduced for this card, including free Boingo WiFi, free in-room internet and no foreign transaction fees for cardmembers. Plus you also receive credit for 5 nights and 2 stays each year toward SPG Elite status, which is 20 nights away for SPG Gold status and 45 nights away for SPG Platinum status in a calendar year.
With this card you earn up to 5 Starpoints for each dollar of eligible purchases at participating SPG hotels (2 Starpoints as a cardmember as well as 2 or 3 Starpoints as an SPG member) and you earn 1 Starpoint spent everywhere else.
What else do I need to know about the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card deal?
Keep in mind that Starwood and Marriott are merging companies in the near future and the loyalty programs are likely to be dominated by the existing Marriott Rewards rather than by Starwood.
