Amex did me a favor....

...when I logged on to my account they has the "Apply now for the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card" advert above my account.
 
Which remineded me I no longer stay in their hotels
 
Which reminded me that I used to stay in their hotels
 
Which reminded me I had a Preferred Guest account with them with points in it
 
Which caused me to go and check out the account
 
Which pointed out that I could swap the points for Airline miles
 
Which I did.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Amex did me a favor....

I've been wondering about this. I've never actually heard of a Starwoods hotel. Is it like a company that owns other hotels like how Choice operates Sleep Inn, Comfort Inn, etc?
Here we go again...
