Pros
  • Starpoints tend to have a higher value (~2.3 cents/point) than most other rewards points
  • Get your rewards, how you want them–redeem for free hotel stays and free flights
  • Access free wifi wherever there's a Boingo hotspot
Cons

AmEx fans know oh too well that this card has limitations in terms of where it can be used. Not all countries or business establishments accept AmEx because of their high swipe fees, which can hurt smaller establishments. As such, the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card by AmEx is best used as a part of a larger business credit card portfolio, with a backup ready to take over if your AmEx can't be charged.
