Our Review

From our partner American Express: Earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints® after you use your new Card to make $6,000 in purchases within the first 3 months, and for a limited time, you can earn an extra 10,000 bonus Starpoints® after you make an additional $4,000 in purchases on the Card within the first 6 months. Offer ends 11/1/2017.

Starpoints can be used for free nights at over 1,300 hotels & resorts in over 100 countries.

The card earns 2x points on select purchases as well as 1x points on everything else, and these Starpoints convert to airline miles or you can use them for free stays or cash-and-points awards at some of Starwood’s great properties worldwide.

Plus, the Starwood Business card gives you additional benefits like Club Lounge Access at SPG properties and free Boingo wifi access around the world. The annual fee of $95 is waived the first year.

Unlike other hotel co-branded credit cards, you won’t get Gold status as a cardmember unless you charge $30,000 on your card annually, but the flexibility of the program to cash in your points for airline miles with a bonus of 5,000 miles for every 20,000 points redeemed makes it more than worth it—even if you don’t frequent Starwood properties.
