Which Starwood Card: Personal or Small Business?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Toshio, commented:

I am interested in applying for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.  But I’m not sure of the difference in perks between the personal and small business versions.  Can you compare both cards?

Both versions of the AMEX Starwood Preferred Guest card come with a 35,000 Starwood point sign-up bonus through April 5, 2017.

But the AMEX Starwood small business card has a larger tiered minimum spending requirement.

That’s because it comes with a few added perks and benefits that are NOT available on the personal version.

This Card Has a Best-Ever Sign-Up Bonus and Does NOT Count Against Chase’s 5/24 Rule

Through April 5, 2017, you can earn up to 35,000 Starwood points on both the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express personal and small business cards after meeting tiered minimum spending requirements.

I’ve written why this is a great offer.  But did you know that applying for the small business version of the AMEX Starwood card will NOT hurt you chances of being approved for Chase cards in the future?

That’s important, because Chase has some of the best travel rewards cards.  And the easiest and fastest way to get Big Travel with Small Money is to sign-up for credit cards with big bonuses.

The Sign-Up Bonus From the AMEX Starwood Small Business Card Is Enough for a Free Night at the Stunning St. Regis Princeville Resort. And It Will NOT Count Against Chase’s 5/24 Rule

I’ll share the details of the AMEX Starwood small business card offer.  And help you decide whether it might make sense for you!
