10,000 Starpoints After Your First Purchase

To be eligible to earn 10,000 bonus Starpoints®, you must make your first purchase with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card within one year of Card approval. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time. You can earn the 10,000 Starpoints first purchase offer starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to make your first purchase may be shorter than 12 months if there is a delay in receiving your Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the 12 month period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). Bonus points will appear on your Starwood Preferred Guest statement 8-12 weeks after your first purchase. For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card.
