AmEx and Marriott Release the Starwood Preferred Guest Luxury Card

AmEx and Marriott Release the Starwood Preferred Guest Luxury Card

August 24, 2018         Written By Lynn Oldshue

Marriott and American Express announced the Starwood Preferred Guest Luxury Card is now available. The card was first unveiled in April as a tribute to the “most premium and often-traveling, globetrotting” credit card users.

The Luxury Card comes with a hefty $450 annual fee, the same as the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card.

Featured Prepaid Card

Top Features:

No late fees or interest charges because this is not a credit card it is a prepaid card.

Benefits of the card include:

  • 6 points per $1 spent at participating Marriot Rewards and SPG hotels
  • 3 points per $1 spent at restaurants and on direct-flight bookings
  • 2 points per $1 spent everywhere else
  • $300 annual statement credits for SPG and Marriott Rewards hotels
  • 1 free night for each anniversary

The card’s rates and fees include an APR of 17.49% to 26.49% for purchases and balance transfers, no over-limit fee and no foreign transaction fee.

Since Marriott and SPG unified their rewards programs, users have mixed feelings about the new tier structures. Many members saw an increase in rewards after the merger, but some existing SPG cardholders reported a drop in rewards.
