Limited-Time Offer! 2 Free Nights With the AMEX Starwood Small Business Card!

There’s a limited-time offer for the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express, and you can earn 2 free nights to use at any Category 1 to 5 Starwood hotel after meeting minimum spending requirements.

To get the deal, you must apply by October 19, 2016.

Because this is an AMEX small business card, it won’t appear on your personal credit report.  So it will NOT hurt your chances of being approved for Chase cards.

But it isn’t as good as the highest-ever offer we saw on this card earlier this year.  And it usually makes more sense for folks to earn Starwood points instead of free nights.  So the regular offer for 25,000 Starwood points after meeting minimum spending requirements is a better deal for most folks.

Starwood AMEX 2 Night Offer

Use the 2 Free Nights From the AMEX Starwood Small Business Card to Stay at the Beautiful Hotel Bristol, A Luxury Collection Hotel, in Vienna. Rooms Here Cost ~$300+ per Night!

I’ll explain why.
