Earlier this week, I wrote that the sign-up bonus for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express would likely return to 25,000 Starwood points after meeting minimum spending requirements.
The limited-time offer which included a bonus of 2 free nights in a category 1 to 5 hotel expired yesterday. And now, as I suspected, the bonus has returned to the regular offer. This is the same as the offer for 25,000 points on the personal card.
This is good news, because 25,000 Starwood points will potentially get you much more Big Travel than 2 free night certificates. And AMEX business cards are quite easy to get approved for!
Use Starwood Points Towards a Stay at Resorts Like the Westin Cancun
I’ll explain why the 25,000 point offer is a better deal for most folks!
Via View From the Wing, folks with Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, and Starwood co-branded credit cards will now earn bonus points on spending at all 3 hotel chains.
This is another positive change following the Marriott – Starwood merger.
Folks With AMEX Starwood Credit Cards Can Now Earn Bonus Points on Spending at Ritz-Carlton Hotels, Like the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage in Palm Springs. The Same Goes for Marriott Cardholders When Spending at Starwood Hotels
I’ll explain more about the changes!

The current offer for 2 free nights at Category 1 to 5 Starwood hotels on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express is set to expire on October 19, 2016. For some folks, this is a potentially good deal. But most folks prefer to earn Starwood points.
So what will the next deal be for this card? I do NOT have official confirmation. But I’m guessing it will return to its usual offer for 25,000 Starwood points.
20,000 Starwood Points Is Enough for a Night at the Category 6 Westin Excelsior, Florence. But It’s Not Available With the Current AMEX SPG Small Business Card Offer, Which Ends October 19, 2016
I’ll help you decide which is better for you!
