Aloft, Starwood’s 8th Hotel Brand, Debuts Today In Montreal!

Starwood Consumer AMEX Linky
Starwood Business AMEX Linky

Aloft is Starwood’s second brand that they have created themselves (W is the only other brand created by Starwood, the rest were all purchased.) The first aloft will open later today in Montreal. It has been designated as a Category 3 award. With 500 Alofts planned for the next 5 years, there should be lots of new opportunities to use Starwood points (as if you needed more ways to use ‘em!)

From Wikipedia:

Aloft; a vision of W Hotels

Announced on September 28, 2005, the aloft brand will serve as a ‘little sister’ brand to the ultra-chic W Hotel brand, similar to Sheraton and Four Points by Sheraton.

The concept for aloft is a build-only brand of mid-scale hotels, 3 to 5 stories in height located in urban areas with up to 500 properties scheduled for completion before 2012. Rooms will feature 10-12 feet high ceilings, emphasizing space and comfort with modern amenities and, like other Starwood brands, a trademarked bed (yet to be announced). Suites are likely to be of a typical loft style design.

Aloft’s focus is on encouraging guests out of their guest rooms to socialize in the Living Room (lobby) for a game of pool or to enjoy a dip in Splash (the pool). Another concept is a complimentary car wash, courtesy of the commissionaire department upon arrival.

Some of its first hotels will open in Chicago, ?stanbul, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Portland and Charleston in mid 2008, and the first internationally will open in Beijing and Montreal. Starwood has announced plans to have 500 Aloft hotels by 2012; as of late 2007 more than 50 were in development.”

DansDeals Forums: The New Interactive Home Of The Discussion Post!

Update: There have been over 1,300 posts made on dansdeals.com/forums in just a week, great job guys!

Post stickied: Scroll down for new posts.

Call me skeptical, but I didn’t think it would work.

Sure, 2 discussion posts each yielded hundreds of great comments, but the last time (some 2 years ago) I tried replacing comments with a forum it was a rather miserable failure.

However Eli decided that he had enough of the long discussion posts and created dansdeals.com/forums

Major kudos to “Eli” (and also to “WhYME”) for working out the technical aspects of the forums.

The forum had its soft launch just a few days ago and it’s already impressively active with topics and posts!

The purpose of the forum is not to replace dansdeals.com or the comments on dansdeals.com, they will continue as normal. Rather the purpose is to better facilitate the discussion of all miscellaneous topics that aren’t dealt with properly on dansdeals.com.

Registration isn’t required to read the forums, however it is required in order to add your own thoughts.

Forums aren’t for everyone, but they definitely help facilitating discussion in an orderly fashion.

Comments on deals posted here will continue as normal, but if you have a miscellaneous question unrelated to a deal please post it in the forums in order to get the best response.

HOT! Get $500 Worth Of John Quincy Adams $1 Coins From The US Mint For $500 Shipped!

Related: Discussion of this deal at dansdeals.com/forums.

Update 2-08/15: HURRY! There are currently coins available via this link for 6 presidents!

There is officially a limit of 2 boxes ($500) of each president.

HT: Hendel.

Update-06/25: Well, I got the coins I ordered, all 7,000 of ‘em. They were dropped off at my front door without any signature, where they sat for a week before I got home! (Ya, I don’t think that $7,000 worth of coins would still be sitting there if my front porch was in NYC…)

They came in 14 packages, each containing 2 boxes, which in turn each held 10 rolls of 25 coins.

Not wasting any time, I brought all ~130 pounds of coins to my local bank. You should’ve seen the teller’s eyes when I told her that the deposit slip saying $7,000 in cash was all coins! Anyway, she calls over the branch manager who asks how I got so many coins.

Honesty is always the best policy, so I showed him my packing slip/invoice from the US mint for the 7,000 coins and told him I did it for the miles. The guy started cracking up hysterically! He couldn’t believe that the US mint could be so crazy as to sell money at face value, but was totally impressed that I actually bought $7,000 in coins to deposit in my account.

After opening 2 of the 28 boxes and seeing the coins in the rolls straight from the mint, he told the teller to just credit my account for the $7,000 without opening up each box.

Will I do it again? I doubt it (unless they offer this deal for bills instead of coins!). But it was quite the experience!

Update: Remember that with the Starwood Consumer AMEX you get a bonus 15,000 Starpoints for spending $15,000 within 6 months, in addition to the 10,000 Starpoint bonus after the 1st purchase with the card. This is a great way to reach that limit. In addition people have been able to get the 15,000 Starpoint bonus on the Starwood Business AMEX automatically as well, or by calling up AMEX after spending $15,000 on the card.

Why would you want to buy 500 $1 coins for $500?

1. Free Starpoints!!!

2. If you have a good savings account you can get the free interest for up to 2 months depending on your credit card’s cycle time.

Just choose the standard shipping for $4.95 and at the final checkout page it will correct itself to being free, as it says it will be on the product page.

Limit $500 per order. There doesn’t appear to be a limit per person or per household!

Stealth Mileage Deflation: Airlines That Charge Fuel Surcharges On Award Tickets…

In today’s hostile environment for airlines the most profitable part of their entire operation is often the selling of frequent flyer miles. Companies, such as credit card issuers, prepay for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of frequent flyer miles to offer as incentives to consumers. AMEX kept Delta afloat during their recent trip to bankruptcy court buy prebuying billions of Delta Skymiles in order to keep the airline, and by extension the Delta AMEX, alive.

Recently a scary trend has been the introduction of the fuel surcharge to award tickets. This is a completely arbitrary charge that is labeled as a tax on on a mileage ticket. Now, there are some real taxes for international award tickets, but they are minimal. The fuel surcharge (which may labeled as “YQ” under taxes) on the other hand can add anywhere from a somewhat palatable $50 to an outrageous $500 to the cost of what is advertised as a free ticket. How this is all legal is beyond me, but I’ll leave that one up to the lawyers out there to take on. In the meantime I have compiled a list of airlines that charge a fuel surcharge when redeeming for award tickets on their own metal (i.e. Using Air France miles to book travel on an Air France airplane).

To make things far more confusing, some airlines only charge a fuel surcharge on award tickets for travel on their own metal, but not for redeeming for a partner award. For example Air Canada charges a fuel surcharge when redeeming for travel on Air Canada, but not for redeeming Air Canada miles for travel on Star Alliance partner Singapore Airlines, even though if you redeem Singapore Airlines miles for travel on Singapore Airlines you will be hit for a fuel surcharge! Continental Airlines doesn’t charge a fuel surcharge when redeeming Continental miles for travel on Continental or SkyTeam partner Air France, however Air France does charge a fuel surcharge when redeeming Air France miles for travel on Air France and they even have the blatant chutzpah to charge a fuel surcharge when redeeming Air France miles for travel on Continental, even though Continental themselves has no fuel surcharge!

Due to research required that is far beyond the scope of this article, what is listed below is just whether each airline charges a fuel surcharge for travel on their own metal. The amount of the surcharge can vary wildly depending on the airline, origination country, routing, etc. Travel on partner airline can vary depending on which miles you are using and which partner you are flying on, and would take much exhaustive research to figure out. However, this much I can tell you: The rule of thumb is airlines that don’t charge a fuel surcharge for redeeming miles for travel on their own metal also don’t charge a fuel surcharge for redeeming miles for travel on partner airlines, even if the partner charges a fuel surcharge. There is no set rule however for airlines that charge a fuel surcharge for redeeming miles for travel on their own metal, they may or may not charge a fuel surcharge for travel on partner airlines, and incredibly it has absolutely nothing to do with whether the partner airline charges a fuel surcharge.

Hopefully that was somewhat clear and understandable!!!

US-based Airlines that do not charge a fuel surcharge for award redemptions when flying on their own metal:
AA (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Alaska (Multiple partners, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Continental (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:20,000 with direct deposit)
Delta (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Important: Delta has recently started charging a fuel surcharge for award travel on Delta metal and on select partners for flights that originate in Europe! To see how this works for yourself search for a RT award ticket from JFK-CDG-JFK which has $77 in taxes, whereas a RT award ticket from CDG-JFK-CDG has $403 in “taxes” which includes a fuel surcharge of about $325 RT)
Northwest (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
United (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:20,000 with direct deposit)
USAirways (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)

International based Airlines that do not charge a fuel surcharge for award redemptions when flying on their own metal:
Air China (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Alitalia (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Emirates (Multiple partners, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
LAN (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:50,000)
SAS (Star Alliance, No Starwood transfer, Diners club transfer @ 2:1)

International based Airlines that charge a fuel surcharge for award redemptions when flying on their own metal:
Air Canada (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Air France/Flying Blue (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Air New Zealand (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,020:385)
Asiana (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
ANA/All Nippon (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
British Airways (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Cathay Pacific (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
El Al (Multiple partners, AMEX transfer partner @ 1,050:15, Starwood transfer via direct deposit)
JAL/Japan Airways (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
KLM/Flying Blue (SkyTeam, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Lufthansa (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Qantas (OneWorld, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Singapore (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:20,000 with direct deposit)
Swiss (Star Alliance, No Starwood transfer, AMEX UK transfer @ 1:1)
Thai (Star Alliance, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)
Virgin Atlantic (Multiple partners, Starwood transfer partner @ 20,000:25,000)

So, here’s the million dollar question: Why haven’t the fee-happy US airlines added a fuel surcharge to award tickets yet? Is it because of legal fears of advertising free tickets and then charging for them? Is it the fear of killing the the goose that lays golden eggs? As you saw, Delta is now charging a fuel surcharge for award flights from Europe, perhaps they are now testing the waters…

“Enjoy both handsfree communication on the go and wireless stereo music from your Bluetooth-compatible cell phone (or PDA or PC) with the Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970. Enjoy excellent audio quality for stereo music and call handling with fast automatic volume adjustment and Digital Signal Processing (DSP). And when the phone rings, a glance at the display reveals the name or number of your caller, allowing you to choose to accept or reject the call.
The multipoint function–which connects to two wireless devices simultaneously–enables you to listen to the music files from a computer, PDA or other Bluetooth devices while remaining connected to their mobile phone, staying available for every call.”
