While, I logged into my account and I saw I had been deposited with 2 stay credits and 5 elite qualifying night credits already which will help me re-qualify for Starwood Platinum status this year.

The Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from Amex also gives Starwood Gold status after spending $30,000 annually on the card.

As a reminder, Starwood Platinum status requires 25 stays or 50 nights per year. Starwood Gold status requires 10 stays or 25 nights per year to earn.

For those who are interested in the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from Amex that also gives 5 nights and 2 stay credits each year, and it is combinable with the personal card, meaning together you could earn 10 elite qualifying nights and 4 stay credits if you have both cards.

Bottom Line

Some programs such as Delta’s SkyMiles have not deposited their members rollover miles yet, so props to Starwood for crediting Amex cardholders with their stay and night credits already.

The current sign-up bonus for this card is 10,000 Starpoints after your first purchase on the Card and an additional 15,000 Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 6 months for a total of 25,000 Starpoints.

Other Card benefits include:

  • Roadside Assistance
  • Car Rental Loss and Damage Insurance
  • 24/7 Global Assist Hotline
  • Travel Accident Insurance
  • Extended Warranty
  • Purchase Protection
  • Return Protection
  • Dispute Resolution

If you don’t already have this card, consider picking it up since there is no annual fee the first year and then it is $65 per year after.

  1. Do you lose the nights if you cancel the card? I was planning on cancelling to avoid the fee and reapplying at a later date. Thoughts? I don’t mean to assume that one could keep getting qualifying nights and stays by cancelling and reapplying. I just don’t want to lose any nights that I have from having the card this year.

  2. Nice. Just checked my account and 6 stays/15 nights have posted. Only 35 nights left to requalify for Plat.

  3. It seems that the 5 nights awarded do not count towards the lifetime nights. Could you confirm if this is true for others. I’m only 7 nights away from reaching Gold lifetime, and would be nice to have the 5 nights awarded from having the credit card count towards the lifetime nights needed.
