If you’ve been considering getting one of the Starwood Amex cards, now is the time to do so! With the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express, you can earn 25,000 Starpoints after you use your new card to make $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.

With the Marriott/Starwood merger, this card will be discontinued next year for new applicants, so if you’re looking to get in on this sign-up bonus, you’ll want to do so soon.

Additionally, with the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express, you can earn 25,000 Starpoints after you use your new card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.

With both of these cards, you’d earn 50,000 Starpoints after completing the minimum spend requirements!

In addition to the sign-up bonuses, those who are looking to earn Starwood Platinum Status, which requires 50 nights or 25 stays a year, may want to consider these cards, since you earn elite-qualifying nights with both of these cards.

The great thing is that you can actually double-dip and earn 10 nights/4 stays for SPG Platinum status if you have both the personal and the business, giving you 20% of the required nights you already need to earn the status, if you choose to qualify by nights.

Both the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express as well as the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express are great cards. The business version of the card offers Sheraton Club access, which is an added benefit.
