Last Day to Win Starwood Starpoints

Today is the last day to enter to win Starwood points — 30,000 points apiece to two lucky readers. The deadline is 5pm Eastern (and you can enter once every 24 hours, so if you’ve entered before, don’t forget that).

American Express offered the points to help you “stretch your summer” with a last-minute getaway.

Way back in May 2002 when I first started this blog I wrote“the credit card I recommend most often for earning miles is the Starwood American Express, because points transfer 1:1 into most airline programs and you get a 5k mile bonus for transferring 20k points — equivalent to earning 1.25 miles per dollar on all purchases.”

Last month I attended a launch event for a new credit card and the rep from Visa saw the Starwood Amex as the card to beat.

When I first got this card in 2001 I received no signup bonus for it. It’s remained front of wallet ever since.

(Note that the links to the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card and Starwood Preferred Guest Business American Express card offer a referral credit to me, they also represent the best currently-available offer. I appreciate your applying through those links very much.)
