Amex has partnered with Starwood hotels to offer the Starwood Preferred Amex Credit Card, a middling credit card with a hefty annual fee and low rewards potential. The most you can earn on a dollar, unless you are spending it within a Starwood Hotel, is 1 starpoint (?). Unlike cash-back cards, too, there is no way to valuate starpoints as they represent a currency operating within a closed economy, namely the Starwood Hotel chain. We do not personally recommend this card, even for frequent Starwood guests, however if you find yourself drawn to it for some reason you will find a useful application guide just below to aid you in the application process.
