US credit card offers have been pretty lucrative the past couple of years. With several major issuers like American Express, Chase, Citi, Barclays, and tons of airlines and hotels wanting to get in on the action, competition has been fierce.

However, most of the amazing offers (featured on my Top Deals page) are only open to US residents.

While this Starwood offer isn’t earth shattering, it’s an easy 11,000 Starwood points for Canadians who may be on the market for a good points earning card. And the $120 annual fee is waived for the first year. Expires March 31, 2011.
