Disclaimer: My boyfriend, Dante, and I are cardholders and I have a relationship with SPG that I will be talking about more in 2015 and 2016. This post was sponsored by the Starwood Preferred Guest® (SPG®) Credit Card from American Express. However, all opinions about AMEX and Starwood are my own, as they always are when I refer to a brand or a partnership of any kind.
I’ve been a fan of Starwood for a long time, and you may remember if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, that I did a project with them in the Fall highlighting their Member Favorites properties in Italy. So when Starwood asked if I would participate in a program to promote their AMEX card, I didn’t have to think too long before I said yes. It’s a natural extension of true brand loyalty or a good decision to make if you’re a points chaser — as I tend to be. Loyalty, I have found, does in fact pay off when you’re a frequent traveler. But I digress…
Starwood seems to, in an industry that often doesn’t, genuinely care about their customers. Certainly, my personal experience has been that they’ve always cared about my business and my well being. (What has your experience been like? I’d genuinely like to know!)
So it is that I am looking forward to what happens as the Starwood and AMEX card benefits continue to stack up for current customers of both brands.
