American Express (AmEx) and Marriott International have unveiled new Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card and Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Luxury Card, along with the refreshed Starwood Preferred Guest Consumer and Business Credit Cards.

Set to be available from May this year, the Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card is part of Marriott’s loyalty programme and will feature a new 100,000-point limited time offer for new cardmembers, along with a variety of other benefits such as reward points on purchases.

Both the new and refreshed cards under the Starwood Preferred Guest programme will be available from August this year.

These cards provide travel benefits and rewards that can be availed at about 6,500 hotels across 127 countries.

The American Express Luxury Card is designed for premium customers and features complimentary Gold Elite Status, additional cards for zero fee and chance to earn Platinum Elite Status, among others.

Furthermore, the Consumer and Business Cards will offer new benefits such as points on purchases at select SPG and Marriott Rewards hotels, Annual Night Award and automatic Silver Elite Status.

The Business Cards will also offer additional ways for small merchants to earn points when they carry out common business purchases, including dining, gas, wireless bills and shipping costs.

American Express senior vice-president of US commercial cards Courtney Kelso said: “We know our card members love to stay at Marriott hotels when they travel the globe.

“With our expanded card offerings, soon they will get access to even more benefits to enhance their hotel stays and their entire travel experience – all while giving them more ways to earn the points we know they love.”
