Starwood no longer exists. Marriott Bonvoy offer two consumer Chase Visa cards (one free and one $95) and two consumer Amex cards with $250 and $650 annual fees.

...and just to confirm what was implied, any of those Marriott-branded cards will give bonus Marriott Bonvoy points for spending at all Marriott-family properties, and that includes Vistana and Marriott Vacation Club. That also includes your maintenance fees if you charge them to one of the Marriott credit cards.

I personally think this is an important perk of ownership and it's silly not to take advantage of it.
