The Starwood American Express credit card has done it again. Both the business and consumer versions of the hotel credit card are offering great signup bonuses, giving the new cardholders chance to get up to 35,000 Starpoints. New cardholders can get this sign up bonus by hitting the spending limits within 3 months.
Experts claim that the 35,000 points are worth 805 dollars when you sell AmEx points for cash. This offer from Starwood comes more than a year after the announcement of the plans of Marriot to acquire Starwood. Read below to know the details of the new offer.
Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express
This offer is for the new users who are signing up for the Starwood Preferred Guest credit card. Cardholders can earn up to 25,000 bonus Starpoints, but the person should use the new card to make purchases worth 3,000 dollars within the first three months of sign up.
There is also a limited time offer that allows users to get an extra 10,000 bonus Starpoints, but to avail the offer the user need to make a purchase of 2,000 dollars in addition to the 3,000 dollars purchase and the additional purchase should be done within six months of signing up for the card.
This signup offer from Starwood ends on 04/05/2017. The annual fee for the credit card is zero dollars for the first year and then ninety-five dollars annually.
Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express
Business users can earn up to 35,000 bonus Starpoints in two stages like the Starwood Preferred Guest credit card. Users can earn 25,000 Starpoints if they make a purchase of 5,000 dollars within the first three months of sign up. They can also have an additional 10,000 bonus points when they make an extra purchase worth 3,000 dollars within six months of signup. The annual fee for this card is same as that of the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card and the offer will end on 04/05/2017.
This latest promotion from Starwood matches the biggest bonus offer that the card issuer offered on March previous year. Both of the cards will earn you 2 Starpoints on each dollar spent at Starwood properties. These points are in addition to the two or three points that user will get as a Starwood Preferred Guest member and the 2 points earned per dollar spent at the Marriott Rewards hotels.
Users can also get one point per dollar spent on all the other purchases. Users can transfer these points the airline partners or redeem the points for stays at Starwood hotels.
