PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO READ IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT RATES, FEE, AND OTHER COST INFORMATION BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION.

By submitting this application, I certify that I have read, met, and agreed to all the terms, conditions and disclosures linked to this application. I understand that the annual fee for the Basic Card has been waived for the first year. Then, the annual fee for the Basic Card is $951. Additional Cards have no annual fee.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RATES, FEE, AND OTHER COST INFORMATION

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for Purchases
15.24% (Prime Rate + 11.99%),17.24% (Prime Rate + 13.99%) or 19.24% (Prime Rate + 15.99%), based on your creditworthiness as determined at the time of account opening. This APR will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate.
APR for Cash Advances
25.24% (Prime Rate+ 21.99%)
This APR will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate.
Penalty APR and When It Applies
29.24% (Prime Rate+ 25.99%)
This APR will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate.
This APR will apply to your account if:
1) You make 2 or more late payments in a 12-month period;
2) You do not pay the Minimum Payment due by the closing date of the billing period in which it is due; or
3) You make a payment that is returned.
How Long Will the Penalty APR Apply? If the Penalty APR is applied, it will apply for a minimum of 12 billing periods in a row, and will continue to apply until after you have made timely payments, with no returned payments for 12 billing periods in a row.
Paying Interest
Your due date is at least 25 days after the close of each billing period. We will not charge you interest on purchases if you pay your entire balance by the due date each month. We will begin charging interest on cash advances on the transaction date.
Fees

How We Will Calculate Your Balance: We use a method called "average daily balance (including new purchases.)"
Loss of Introductory APR: We will end any Introductory APR and apply the Purchase APR if you make a late payment. Your introductory APR will also end if the Penalty APR applies to your Account.

Variable APRs for each billing period are based on the Prime Rate published in The Wall Street Journal 2 days before the Closing Date of the billing period. The Wall Street Journal may not publish the Prime Rate on that day. If it does not, we will use the Prime Rate from the previous day it was published. If the Prime Rate increases, variable APRs will increase. In that case, you may pay more interest and have a higher Minimum Payment Due. When the Prime Rate changes, the resulting changes to variable APRs take effect as of the first day of the billing period. Variable APRs are accurate as of 08/01/2015.

You will receive two Starpoints® from American Express for each US dollar of eligible purchases charged on your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express when charged directly with participating Starwood properties, standalone Starwood retail establishments, and Starwood online stores that, in each case, are wholly owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc, and its affiliates.

Starpoints awarded by Starwood. You will receive two Starpoints (or three Starpoints if you have Starwood Preferred Guest® elite status) from Starwood for each US dollar of eligible charges under the Starwood Preferred Guest Program.
