Although the sign-up bonus for the Canadian Starwood Amex is usually just a paltry 5,000-10,000 points, last October, the signup bonus for the card hit 15,000 points. Now, however, the Canadian Starwood Preferred Guest credit card from American Express is sweetening the deal with its highest-ever sign-up bonus of 21,000 Starpoints when you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months when you apply now through April 11, 2013.

It's a good time to be a Canadian.

The Canadian Starwood Preferred Guest Business Card from Amex is also offering 15,000 bonus Starpoints for spending $1,000 within the first 3 months of membership. This card also lets you earn 1 Starpoint for every $1 in purchases charged to the card, and receive a Free Weekend Night Award at hotels and resorts worldwide when you reach $40,000 in purchases on the card each year. The annual fee for this card is $150, which may be a tax-deductible expense (if used solely for business as per your tax professional) and the annual interest rate is 19.99%. This offer also ends April 11, 2013.

While still not as high as the current offers of the American versions of the personal and business Starwood Amex cards, in terms of the sign-up offers on the Canadian versions of these cards, which tend not to be as lucrative as American travel credit cards in general, this is as high as we’ve ever seen, so if you’ve been considering one or either of these cards, apply before these offers go away on April 11.
