Starwood Preferred Guest® cardholders earn up to 5X Starpoints® on Starwood purchases, 2X on Marriott purchases, and 1X on everything else. But with the high value of its rewards (frequently valued over 2%), even everyday purchases will reap valuable rewards that can be used at SPG® properties or transferred to most frequent flyer programs. Although this “Free Nights & Flights” redemption program is limited to SPG® properties and participating frequent flyer programs, the rate of rewards makes it a terrific value.
Plus, as a bonus offer, after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months, new cardholders will earn 25,000 bonus Starpoints®, which translates into enough points for a 2-night stay at most SPG® properties.
Redeem Starpoints® for free flights on over 150 airlines with SPG Flights with no blackout dates and receive a 5,000 Starpoint bonus when you transfer 20,000 Starpoints to a participating frequent flyer program.
For frequent travelers interested in upping their SPG® elite status, cardmembers receive credit for 5 nights and 2 stays each year toward SPG® elite status. That's just 20 nights away for SPG Gold status and 45 nights away for SPG Platinum status in a calendar year.
