Money Making AMEX Express Checkout: Like SBS In July, Only Better!

Update: If you get a blank screen on NewEgg when checking out with AMEX, try logging into a NewEgg account and selecting AMEX Express Checkout as the payment method only after logging in.

———————————————————————————

SBS is that magical day of the year when AMEX makes our wishes come true with statement credits to cover what we spend at small businesses.

AMEX Express Checkout may be even better:

amex4

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week I wrote about the new AMEX Express Checkout service and the promo offer for $10 off any order.

The terms say “Limit one $10 statement credit, per American Express online account, per merchant.”

But I like experimenting so I made several orders of $0.01 each from Newegg.

I used AMEX cards from the same online account as well as cards with their own account login. I also used primary and secondary cards from the same account.

Today I got a $10 statement credit on each AMEX card for every $0.01 order that I made, so it took just 5 days instead of the stated 90 days after the promo end to get the credit. And it worked for cards on the same online account.

While SBS 2014 for example actually required you to spend $30 to get back $30, this promotion allows you to spend any amount to get back a $10 statement credit! Plus it works at 11 different stores!

The 1 penny items from NewEgg are now sold out, but you can use this NewEgg link to find other cheap items that will trigger a $10 statement credit!  Currently items start at just $0.13 shipped, though cheaper items are likely to sell out quickly…

The only thing I didn’t try was making multiple purchases on the same card, though I just tried that now and will post an update if that gets a credit as well.

This promotion runs through 09/07/15.  Consumer and business cards are eligible. Prepaid and corporate liable cards are not eligible.

The process is simple:

1. Add any inexpensive item to your cart.

2. Select AMEX Checkout in your cart:

newegg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Login to your AMEX account, verify your account, and checkout.

4. Repeat for your other cards.

5. Check back in 5-7 days for a credit.

Eligible stores (Each AMEX card is eligible for a $10 statement credit for making a purchase at each of these stores):
Barkbox.com
us.burberry.com
Laithwaiteswine.com
Ledbury.com
Newegg.com
Sabon.com
Ticketmaster.com
Virginwines.com

Is This The Beginning Of The End? Delta Introducing Dynamic Award Pricing For Travel From 06/01/16

The beauty of miles has long been the lack of correlation between mileage cost and cash cost. That has meant that a last minute coach ticket that would cost $2,000 cash can cost just 9,000 miles.  A $15,000 first class suite can cost just 57,000 miles. They’re practical and aspirational to collect and use. And that’s been a boon to airlines, banks, and consumers all at the same time.

Delta’s miles (aka Skypesos) have long been among the least valuable in the industry. Then Delta hid their award charts earlier this year.

And now this,

“We know your miles are important, so we want to provide the most notice possible regarding Award price changes. For travel on or after June 1, 2016, the number of miles needed will change based on destination, demand and other considerations. But most Award prices will remain unchanged. To see the best availability and deals, search at least 21 days prior to departure and use our Award Calendar by selecting “flexible days” when searching for a flight.
Miles needed to upgrade will increase, and to provide greater access to these upgrades, we’ve expanded the eligible types of fares.”


I’m not even sure what they mean that “But most Award prices will remain unchanged.” They don’t even have a published award chart today and their award award chart already consists of 5 different levels!

To Delta’s credit, they have introduced awards starting at just 7.5K miles when booked 21 days in advance.

But the ballgame is changing. Delta clearly wants to put an end to outsized mileage redemption values, especially those within 21 days. Dynamic pricing will allow them to charge less for flights that cost less and more for flights that cost more. It’s a simple concept, but it eats away at the very value proposition of miles and can lead consumers to turn in their mileage cards for cashback cards.

Will Delta continue to allow partner redemptions within 21 days to be had at saver levels? It’s hard to say at this point.

We can hope this is just a one-off. But United loves copying Delta devaluations. We saw that when United copied Delta’s dreadful revenue based mileage earning scheme.

It’s hard to see United not copying Delta’s lead here. The only question is how far they’ll go.

My hope is that United is smart enough not to kill the golden goose and that they continue to have published saver award charts and that they continue to allow redemptions within 21 days.

If United introduces dynamic award levels for standard awards that won’t be the end of the world. But it will be a very sad day if they copy Delta here and delete their award charts for good in favor of dynamic pricing.

The BA Glitch Fix Has Made Even More Flights And Routes Available To Book With Avios Online Than Before!

Related post (Read this first!): Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About British Airways Avios: Tips, Tricks, And Advice You Need To Know To Maximize Your Avios

——————————————————————————————–

Yesterday I broke the news that American flights were back on BA.com after a few week hiatus.

Turns out that things are even better than before!

Previously, when there were a lot of available award flights BA.com would only display the earlier flights and not the flights later in the day.
Booking the later flights required a phone call to a competent agent (such as those at the Singapore desk).

Well the good news here is that this glitch appears to have been fixed!

LGA-Chicago on BA.com now matches up exactly to what AA.com shows:

aa1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LGA-Miami on BA.com also matches up exactly to what AA.com shows:

aa2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Except of course BA charges 7.5K for those flights instead of the 12.5K that AA charges. AA has a $75 close-in fee while BA has none. AA charges a $150 cancellation fee while BA allows you to cancel for $5.60.

As per this post, always search for NYC, LGA, EWR, and JFK as each can give different results.

 

In the past LAN flights have typically had to be booked over the phone, but I’m now seeing LAN routes that have never showed up on BA.com before.

For example Buenos Aires/AEP to Iguazu Falls/IGR can now be booked online:

lan1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Santiago, Chile-Easter Island:

lan2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Easter Island-Papeete, just a 45 minute flight from Bora Bora:

lan3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alas, Alaska and Aer Lingus flights are still not available online.

——————————————————————————————–

Despite the numerous naysayers calling me “complicit in the coverup” for advising people not to panic. Despite some mileage brokers “confirming” that BA Avios would never be the same. No the sky is not falling. My brazen prediction goes on to live another day.

American flights are once again bookable on BA.com with Avios.

Which is a good thing because using 4.5K Avios+$5.60…

No close-in fee and only a $5.60 fee to redeposit the ticket and get back the miles make it that much sweeter.

Roundup Of Changes To American Express Gold And Starwood Consumer And Business Cards

Update: American Express has confirmed that all holders of the Premier Rewards Gold card will receive 15K bonus points for spending $30K in 2015.

That comes on top of double points on restaurants, gas, and groceries in the US and triple points on airfare.  If you can spend $30K this year that bumps up the double point categories to 2.5 points per dollar and the triple points category to 3.5 points per dollar.

——————————————————————————————————

Originally posted on 06/03:

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

Effective June 1st AMEX made some excellent changes to the Premier Rewards Gold Charge Card.  The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN will see a positive change on July 28th.

The Starwood Preferred Guest Consumer Card and the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Card will be refreshed on August 11th.

Here’s a recap of the details:

——————————————————————————————————

The Premier Rewards Gold card’s annual fee has increased from $175/year to $195/year. The fee is waived for the first year.

But the benefits provided for that $20 increase are awesome:

1. You can register here for a $100 airline fee credit per calendar year. That means in your first cardmember year you can get $200 back with $100 in 2015 and $100 in 2016. Officially these are intended to be used for bag fees, seat upgrades, and lounge passes/memberships. However they also work for items like $100 American Airlines gift cards or $100 United gift registry contributions and more.

In my mind that effectively drops the annual fee to a far more palatable $95/year.

2. The card no longer charges a foreign transaction fee.

3. The card will now give double points at restaurants in addition to double points on gas and groceries in the US and triple points on airfare.
That’s a very nice mix of bonus spend categories and comes out top of Membership Rewards promotions like the one earlier this year that offered 40% bonus points for transfer to British Airways Avios.

4. Officially this card was supposed to stop offering a 15K point bonus for spending $30K in a calendar year, but there have been numerous reports that it’s still working in 2015.  That’s pretty sweet as it bumps the effective earn rates of the double point categories to 3x and the triple point category to 4.5x.

5. The card also continues to offer 5 additional cardholders without any additional annual fee, each of which qualify for promotions like Small Business Saturday. Last year SBS gave a $30 per card credit, so someone who had a Premier Gold card with 5 additional users was able to get $180 in free spending.

——————————————————————————————————

The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN will no longer charge a foreign transaction fee effective 07/28.

The card offers triple points in one of these categories of your choice and the other 4 categories get double points:
-Airfare purchased directly from airlines
-U.S. purchases for advertising in select media
-U.S. purchases at gas stations
-U.S. purchases for shipping
-U.S. computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers
——————————————————————————————————

DDF user Maurice broke the news 2 weeks ago about upcoming Starwood changes and AMEX has now confirmed that information.

The Starwood Preferred Guest Consumer Card and the Starwood Preferred Guest Business card’s annual fees will increase from $65/year to $95/year. The fee is waived for the first year.  The spend threshold to get the signup bonus on the consumer card has dropped from $5K to $3K.

The new benefits that will take effect on 08/11 include:

1. The cards will no longer charge a foreign transaction fee.  It will finally make sense to pay for Starwood hotels overseas with your Starwood credit card :)

2. Free premium in-room internet. All SPG guests get free internet, but elites and cardholders get the faster version for free.

3. Unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi worldwide.  Search from over 1 million hot-spots here.

4. The Starwood business card will now provide free access to Sheraton Club lounges.  The business card is also eligible for Open Savings rebates on purchases from Fedex, HP, Hertz, Hyatt, and more. (1 Starpoint per dollar + 5% cash back at Hyatt makes this card better for Hyatt stays than the Hyatt card…oh the irony.)

5. Both cards continue to offer Preferred Plus status which gives complimentary 4pm checkout at SPG hotels.  If you spend $30K you’ll get Starwood gold status, though that status comes free with the Platinum Card or Business Platinum Card. Some people even get it free for asking nicely 😀

6. Both cards continue to offer up to 99 additional cardholders without any additional annual fee, each of which qualify for promotions like Small Business Saturday.  It’s not hard to make up the annual fee thanks to these promotions (you should see how many diapers I now have thanks to the recent Sam’s Club promotion 😉 )

While the Starwood card still only offers 1 point per dollar (except at Starwood hotels where you’ll earn 2 points per dollar), you do earn a 25% bonus when you transfer Starpoints into miles from dozens of airlines at a 20K:25K ratio.  Of course Starpoints can also be used at SPG hotels starting at 2K points for a free night or with other redemption options like nights & flights, cash & points, and 5th night free awards.

Can Everyone Please Stop Panicking About Their Avios…

Update: This issue is still ongoing and I’ll be sure to update when it’s been fixed.

When calling BA using the US 1-800 number some people have reported issues with hold times as well as with the (typically incompetent) agents finding the nonstop saver flights that show up on AA.com.

I just called the BA call center in Singapore and they had no hold time and were able to quickly find the exact nonstop saver award flights that AA.com shows. 

They weren’t sure when BA.com will be fixed to show AA flights, but they proactively offered to waive the phone booking fee, making the cost of a CLE-LGA round-trip flight just 9,000 Avios+$11.20. The flight would otherwise have cost $1,141.

It costs just 2 cents per minute to make a call to the BA call center in Singapore via the Google Hangouts app. Their phone number and hours of operation can be found in the original post below.

Related: Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About British Airways Avios: Tips, Tricks, And Advice You Need To Know To Maximize Your Avios

I’ve gotten quite a few emails from people panicking about not being able to find Avios flights like they used to on American Airlines.

Some mileage brokers have spread rumors “confirming” that you won’t be able to use Avios on American anymore :roll:

That’s nonsense, what’s going on is nothing more than an IT bug that is being worked on.

A couple of weeks ago American’s saver award availability disappeared from their website for several days.  That space has returned, but it just hasn’t returned to BA.com for Avios bookings.

However BA is more than happy to book those seats over the phone. Their agents are aware of the bug and will be happy to waive the phone booking fee.

Just to confirm I found saver award space on AA.com for a flight tomorrow from Chicago to Cleveland.  AA.com wanted 12.5K miles plus $80.60 to book it.  I called BA and they were identified the same flights that AA.com was showing and correctly quoted a fare of 4.5K Avios plus $5.60 to book it.

It’s important to note that you aren’t limited to booking with the US based phone number for BA. You can use any of their offices to book, including:
US: 800-452-1201 (7:30am-8pm EDT)
Singapore +65-6823-2095 (9pm-5:30am EDT)
Israel: +972-3-606-1515 (2am-9am EDT)
UK: +44-191-490-7901 (2:30am-3pm EDT)

Trip Notes: Eating Our Way Through Montreal

-Find dozens of trip notes like this one by clicking on the “Trip Notes” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site.

I was last in Montreal over 5 years ago for my brother Dovid’s wedding. I was impressed with Montreal’s kosher scene and made a mental note to return during a less hectic time, and preferably when it wasn’t snowing outside :)

So we planned a trip this year over Canada Day (July 1st) to take advantage of the numerous festivals that occur then.

We’ve spent a summer vacation in Canada over each of the past 4 years.

-Vancouver (click here for trip notes from 2012) is a beautiful city with a nice vibe and a small but quality kosher food scene.  We didn’t make it to nearby Whistler, but hope to one day.

-Banff (click here for trip notes from 2013) is one of the most stunning places in the world. No kosher food, but truly a must-see for everyone.  I definitely plan on returning when the kids are older and can appreciate the amazing hikes and lakes there.

-Niagara Falls (click here for trip notes from 2014) is a bit touristy for me, though I’ve been spoiled by Brazil’s Iguaçu Falls. Toronto is a very clean city with a large kosher scene, though none of the food stands out as exceptional.  There are lots of activities in the area though, including an excellent safari.

Montreal has by far and away the best kosher scene food in the country and can hold up its own against anywhere in the world. The activity scene itself is somewhat limited, but the festivals make up for it, if you time the trip right.  If you have the time to venture out to the Laurentians or Quebec City you’ll probably find more to do. The Francophone flavor adds a bit of intrigue to the city, but for the good and the bad, Montreal is no Paris.

Charter A Private Jet From NYC To Baltimore Today For $536

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

There’s a flight available today from Teterboro to BWI at 4:30pm. You can bring up to 6 passengers, so your cost per seat can be as low as $89.

If you’re looking for a return flight, there are at least 6 seats available to fly back from Baltimore nonstop to JFK on Monday or Tuesday for just 4.5K BA Avios per person (though you currently have to call to book Avios tickets)

WiFi and refreshments and free. A lap child under 2 is free.

The reason it’s relatively cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

If it says to wait to request that means someone else has it in their cart until the time expires as shown. It will change to sold out if they actually book it.

If you book it be sure to post a trip report with pics on DDF 😀

Don’t need the whole plane? In the past DDF members have split a plane, so make a post there if you want to join in on some fun!

Manufacture A Newark To Tel Aviv Nonstop For $768 Round-Trip Or JFK To Tel Aviv Nonstop For $778 Round-Trip

Currently there are tickets from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv for $622 and from NYC to Tel Aviv for $874.

A $250 savings per passenger is enough for many NYC people to make the drive to PHL, but you can manufacture a ticket from NYC for as low as $768 on Delta and United.

Bookable on Priceline. Priceline tickets from the USA are refundable until 11:29pm ET the day after purchase.
And Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets from the USA are refundable until 11pm ET the day after purchase.

Delta and United have $660 fares from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv via JFK and Newark respectively.

If you book a multi-destination trip going from JFK or EWR to Tel Aviv and then returning from Tel Aviv to Philadelphia you will split the different between the fares of both cities.  Which in this case means you’ll pay $768, $778, or $783 instead of $874.  Just use the multi-city fare search.

Although your bag will be tagged to Philadelphia all bags will be picked up in NYC. Federal law requires that you bring your bags past customs yourself and can recheck your bags to Philadelphia, though nobody will force you to recheck them.

You’ll want to try multi-destination with both Priceline and Orbitz as the results will vary with this kind of search.

United also codeshares with Amtrak for departures from ZFV. ZFV is an airport code that Orbitz will recognize, but it’s not an airport at all. It’s the 30th street train station in downtown Philadelphia.  I’ve written about ZFV a few times before and discuss it in DansDeals seminars.

If you book a ticket from Newark to Tel Aviv and then returning from Tel Aviv to ZFV you would have to pick up your bags, pick up an Amtrak ticket, and then carry your bags onto the train as Amtrak doesn’t even have checked baggage on that route. Again, nobody will force you onto that train…

As far as which dates will work, it’s based on finding cheap fares from NYC to TLV and then from TLV to PHL.

I’ve done the hard work for you and below are most of the dates that this will work for.

This is called hidden city ticketing, and of course the airlines don’t love that.  And airline reps will probably lie to you and say that your bags will go straight to Philadelphia even though they will not.  They will be tagged to Philadelphia, but everyone has to pick them up in Newark or JFK.

They can decide not to give miles for your trip, though only USAirways has actually followed through with that threat.  I don’t suggest anyone do this every month, but tons of people save money by buying tickets with hidden city ticketing every day without problems.

You can read this post for more on how to utilize hidden city ticketing.
