Starwood Proud of its Credit Card

Starwood’s The Lobby is justifiably beaming with pride over a Fortune magazine piece which declares its co-branded American Express card the best rewards card. Indeed, it is.

Two thoughts occur to me, however.

First, how come they don’t kvell just as much when I endorse their card as best?

Second, the Fortune writer doesn’t seem to know that Diners Club no longer offers two billing cycles to pay. Doesn’t make me the better expert? And more of a reason to kvell over my endorsement? Heh.

Oh well, as long as people carry the card then I suppose my work is done.
