More on Starwood Card

Hotel List. Last time I redeemed my Starpoints we used our points at a W Hotel and the Westin. Starwood hotels also include St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, Le Meridien, Sheraton, AloftSM, ElementSM, Four Points by Sheraton, and over 1,000 more.

Earning Starpoints. Earn 5 Starpoints per dollar at Starwood hotels (2 Starpoints per dollar spent on the Card, 2 Starpoints as an SPG member, and 1 Starpoint with SPG Gold or Platinum status). You earn 1 Starpoint everywhere else.

Starwood Business Card

In addition to the personal Starwood Preferred Guest card, you can also get a Business Starwood Preferred Guest Card. The bonus is the same as the personal card.

In the past, when American Express has offered a bonus on their personal and business cards, I applied for both at the same time and got both bonuses. So you could potentially get 60,000 Starpoints if you choose to do both.
