    I am thinking of canceling my SPG AmEx card before the annual fee is due but am concerned about my SPG points. I know with the Sapphire you need to transfer all Ultimate Rewards points out of you account before closing it or you loose them. Does the same hold true with the SPG AmEx or are the points earned from this card under the umbrella of Starwood and not American Express. Thanks for the help.

    The points you earn should be deposited into you SPG account, each month you have activity, after the statement closing. Have you reviewed your account?

    I have. I see the Starpoints both in my SPG account and online at AmEx. It sounds like all points earned from the AmEx reside under SPG and not AmEx. Safe to say that if I cancel my AmEx I wont loose my Starpoints. Thanks for the reply.

    On the upper right hand side of the american express page, does this show:

    Starpoints®

    Your SPG Number is XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Your STARPOINTS EARNED* are X,XXX

    YTD with your card

    The points you earn are STARPOINTS and are associated with your starwood account not AMEX. Understand?
