American Express continues to top J.D. Power & Associates’ list for best credit card issuers for customer satisfaction, thanks mainly to its strong rewards programs like the one that accompanies the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card. The rewards program and top-ranked customer service from American Express continues to foster appreciation among personal card owners, and now this card is available for businesses as well. The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express offers the same benefits as the consumer card with a few business perks that make this attractive to business owners looking to maximize travel rewards.
Following a business customer’s first purchase with this card made within one year of card approval, holders of the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express can receive 10,000 bonus Starpoints. After spending $5,000 on eligible purchases during the first six months of Cardmembership, card holders can earn 15,000 bonus Starpoints, for a total potential initial bonus of up to 25,000 Starpoints. However, this welcome bonus offer is not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months.
These points, and all points earned in this program, can be redeemed for stays at over 1,100 hotels and resorts in nearly 100 countries participating in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program. Starpoints can also be redeemed for flights on more than 350 airlines through SPG Flights – all with no blackout dates
Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express is a credit card, unlike the more typical charge card from American Express which means customers who don’t pay bills in full and roll a balance from one month to the next will owe interest.
There is a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $65. The $65 annual fee is relatively low for an American Express business card.
Business owners will also find a variety of special services and perks attached to the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. Here are just a couple:
- Earn up to 5 Starpoints® for each dollar of eligible purchases charged directly with hotels and resorts participating in the Starwood Preferred Guest® program
