Tips and Tricks
Gift Card Choices. While I’m a big fan of Amazon, and it’s always my first choice, there are many other redemption options. You can choose free hotel stays, frequent flier tickets, and various gift cards.
Earning Starpoints. In addition to the bonus Starpoints, you earn one Starpoint for each dollar spent on your guest card.
Annual Fee Waived. The card does have an annual fee of $45. However, with this offer the fee is waived the first year.
