The Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express is offering travelers some new benefits that will take the edge off of traveling, including no foreign transaction fees, free WiFi, and in-room internet. SPG American Express OPEN cardholders will also get access to Sheraton Club Lounges. The new benefits started this month and came along with a new card redesign.

“The SPG Credit Card by American Express connects our members to a world of rich rewards, allowing Card Members to accelerate their e arnings and achieve elite privileges faster,” said Mark Vondrasek, senior vice president, Distribution, Loyalty and Partnership Marketing for Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “We always want to give our members more for their loyalty, and with these new benefits, we’re making it even easier for our most valued guests to enjoy their travels in style.”

Freebies and more

Foreign transaction fees can add up and now cardholders no longer have to deal with them. They can also access free unlimited Wi-Fi with over one million Boingo Hotspots around the world, without having to pay roaming charges. But to get access to this perk they must enroll in the Boingo American Express Preferred Plan, and once they do they are entitled to free Wi-Fi access for up to four devices.

Do you hate paying for internet connections in your room? Well cardholders now get free in-room Internet access so they can stay connected when booking stays at participating hotels.

Chilling in the lounge

People with the SPG American Express OPEN Card can also check out the Sheraton Club Lounges where they can sit down and relax while having breakfast on SPG, as well as munching on hors d’oeuvres and drinking premium beverages. They can also use the space to entertain a workmate or a friend.

People also continue to earn five Starpoints for every dollar spent at Starwood hotels, as well as one point for all other purchases. It takes five nights or two stays for cardholders to get elite status every year, and they can upgrade to SPG Gold status once they have spent $30,000 with their card during the year.
