Hotel Cards With the Most Valuable Free Nights on Your Card Anniversary

There are many cards that offer a fantastic sign-up bonus.  But some cards offer a great benefit that makes them worth keeping long-term:  free hotel nights on your card anniversary.

You’ll typically earn the free night after your account has been open for a year, so you’ll have to pay the card’s annual fee to get the benefit.

But these cards usually make the annual fee worthwhile because you can more than make up for the fee with the free card anniversary night.

Can You Transfer Starwood Points to Southwest and Earn the Companion Pass?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Terri Clark commented:

I have recently been targeted for both the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer credit card and the Chase Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Visa card for 50,000 miles each.  Currently, I have 7 new credit card accounts in one year, including the Chase Sapphire Preferred and the Chase Hyatt card.

My question is, if I apply for and receive the Southwest card, can I transfer American Express Starwood Preferred Guest points to Southwest to help me reach the Companion Pass?  I have read that I cannot do that with Chase Sapphire Preferred.  Thanks!

Great question, Terri!

Unfortunately, Southwest is NOT currently a Starwood airline transfer partner.  And you’re correct that transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to Southwest will NOT count toward the Companion Pass.

Can You Transfer Starwood Points To Southwest And Earn The Companion Pass

There Are Lots of Ways to Earn Southwest Points for the Companion Pass – but Transferring Starwood Points Isn’t One of Them!
