“I Got Approved For The AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card…Now What Do I Do With The Points?”

AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card Now Offering At Least 25,000 Signup Bonus Points!!!

AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Charge Card Linky (Clear your browser’s cache and cookies if you do not see the 25,000 point/no fee for first year offer. Do not login to your AMEX account when applying or you may not get the same offer)

A number of readers have asked me what they should be doing with 25,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points once they get them.
Frankly there’s no limit to what you can do with them, but here are a few of the possibilities.

The nice thing about AMEX Membership Rewards points is for example if you have multiple people applying for the card and getting 25,000 points they can all transfer the points into one person’s mileage account.
Additionally points generally transfer instantly, so once you find a free ticket you can transfer the points and grab it.

Here is the complete list of programs that you can transfer points to:
AeroMexico: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Air Canada: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
AirTran: 1,500 AMEX Points=1 credit.
Alitalia: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
ANA: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
British Airways: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Continental: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Delta: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
El Al: 1,050 AMEX Points=15 Points.
Air France/KLM Flying Blue: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Frontier: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Hawaiian: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Iberia: 1,400 AMEX Points=100 Points.
Jetblue: 250 AMEX Points=200 Points.
Mexicana: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Singapore: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.
Southwest: 1,500 AMEX Points=1 credit.
Virgin Atlantic: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Miles.

There are also some hotel programs that you can transfer to, including
Hilton: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,300 Points.
Priority Club: 1,000 AMEX Points=1,000 Points, or 1,200 points until 06/30.
Starwood: 1,000 AMEX Points=333 Points.

With all those transfer options you can get a free domestic ticket on practically any airline by utilizing alliance/partner airline redemption.  You generally need to call up the airline to redeem on partners.

Every airline has different rates for award redemptions, but the key to the applicable mileage rate is the carrier booking the ticket, not the carrier doing the flying. For example ANA charges 60,000 miles to fly from NYC to Tel Aviv, regardless of if it’s on Air Canada, Continental, or USAirways. Continental charges 75,000 miles to fly the same route, regardless of which airline you’re flying on. USAirways charges 80,000 miles, again, regardless of whether you fly on them or Continental, or any other Star Alliance carrier.

Want an AA ticket? Transfer to British Airways and they’ll book you on AA.
Want a United or USAirways ticket? Transfer to Continental and they’ll book you on them.

Here are just a few transfer options:

Continental. Transfer your 25,000 points to Continental and you can get a free domestic ticket on Continental, United, or USAirways. Continental miles are also just about the only miles that never expire. A ticket to Israel is 75,000 miles in coach and 115,000 in business class. Continental is now a Star Alliance member and can book you on any of those 26 airlines or other partner airlines like Virgin Atlantic. Plus Continental does not charge any “fuel surcharges” on award tickets and they allow free date and route changes on award tickets.

ANA. Transfer your points to ANA where you can book an award ticket to Israel for just 60,000 miles in coach or 90,000 in business. ANA is part of the Star Alliance so they can book you on partner carriers with nonstop flights from North America like Air Canada, Continental, and USAirways. ANA doesn’t charge fuel surcharges on award tickets if the operating carrier also doesn’t charge them, so you won’t pay any ripoff fees when redeeming for travel on airlines like Continental and USAirways. You can also transfer your Starpoints into ANA (20,000 Starpoints=25,000 ANA)

-Air Canada: Transfer your points to Air Canada Aeroplan (25,000 AMEX=25,000 Air Canada Aeroplan) where 80,000 miles miles are enough for a Business Class ticket and 100,000 miles are enough for a First Class ticket on any Star Alliance airlines to Europe. Or 100,000 miles are enough for a Business Class ticket and 120,000 miles are enough for a First Class ticket to Asia and Europe as you can cross over both the Atlantic and the Pacific for a Round-The-World style ticket. Air Canada allows you to take 2 stopovers in addition to the final destination on award tickets which make for a great redemption value. There are also no fuel surcharges on Star Alliance award ticket redemptions. You can also transfer your Starpoints into ANA (20,000 Starpoints=25,000Air Canada Aeroplan )

-Air France/KLM: Transfer them to Flying Blue where all you need is 50,000 points in Coach or 80,000 in Business. The catch here is they do charge a fuel surcharge on award tickets. (Alitalia is also a transfer option that charges just 50K/80K to Israel but with fuel surcharges). Additionally they are part of the Skyteam alliance where availability isn’t as good as with the Star Alliance. However they also have promo awards that are good from various US cities throughout the year when 25,000 points is enough for a ticket to Europe or even Israel!

British Airways: Transfer the 25,000 points to British Airways and they can book you a free ticket on Oneworld partner American Airlines.  AA has some of the best award availability of any domestic airline.  While British Airways has massive fuel surcharges when flying on British Airways, there are no fuel surcharges when flying on partner airlines. Note that you can’t use British Airways miles for transatlantic flights on AA.

Airtran, Frontier, Jetblue, and Southwest are all fine transfer options if you are after domestic tickets.

Priority Club: Transfer them to Priority Club where currently 25,000 AMEX=30,000 Priority Club. With 30,000 Priority Club you can book 6 nights in a Points Break hotel like I was able to do at the Crown Plaza Jerusalem recently.

-There are tons of other great transfer options as well, post your favorite in the comments!

Mazal Tov Eli And Chana!

I just wanted to give a big mazal tov to Eli Webster who got married tonight to Chana Samet in Toronto.

Eli singlehandedly created the awesome Dansdeals Forums where some 800 members have made nearly 17,000 posts in 1,800 topics and is a wealth of information and help.

It was even via the forum where I learned about the new LAN chart which allows you to use Starpoints for insanely low rates for short-haul flights to places like Canada, which I eventually used to get some tickets for Eli’s family to Toronto!

He has also helped me out on many occasions with the technical side of Dansdeals.com, even while getting ready for his marriage.

May you guys have a binyan adei ad, an everlasting home with only the best…thanks for all the great work, Eli!

Got BMI Silver Elite Status? Here’s How To Get Your Free Baggage On Continental!

Update: You can call BMI at +44 (0)1332 854274 (2 cents per minute via Google Voice) to request that your Star Alliance Silver card be expedited. In the package are some other goodies like a Star Alliance Silver luggage tag.

Did you get free Silver status on BMI? Lucky you! You now can get free checked bags for yourself and your traveling companions on airlines like Continental, United, and USAirways.

On Continental.com go to “Manage Reservations” and find your itinerary or enter your confirmation number.

When you are viewing the reservation click on “Edit traveler information”

At the very bottom of that page you will find “Frequent Flyer Information (Optional),” select British Midland (BMI) Diamond Club and enter in your BMI member number.

24 hours before your flight you can checkin at Continental.com and select bags. If you have BMI Silver status it should allow you and everyone else on your itinerary to select 2 free 50 pound bags. On your boarding pass it will also display your BMI number along with *S. *S stands for Star Alliance Silver.

If for whatever reason it does not allow you to select bags for free you can try calling Continental up, but your best bet may be at the airport. At every airport is a sign saying how much luggage costs and it’s very clear that Star Alliance Silver members get 2 free bags. Below is a pic that I took at LAX of the sign with my phone last week.  Just show the agent that your boarding pass says *S and they will be able to waive your luggage fees.

After checking your luggage at the airport using one of Continental’s kiosks you can go back into your reservation at the kiosk and change your mileage number from BMI to any Star Alliance mileage number that you perfer to earn miles with.  I had no problem changing from my BMI/Star Alliance Gold number to my Continental Silver number, but it did cost me an upgrade :(  More about that in my trip notes…

HOT! Get 50,000 United Miles For Opening A United Chase Visa Signature Card!

Update: To get the 50,000 miles offer you can enter in the wrong zip code for your account and be transferred to an agent. You can then ask to be transferred to Chase where you will be offered the 50,000 miles.

United is offering 50,000 miles for opening a United Visa.

I confirmed with 3 reps that the miles will post after your first purchase and the $60 annual fee is waived with the offer.

To get the card this FT post has the best method:

-Call up United Mileage Plus at 800-421-4655
-Say “Manage My Account.”
-Enter in your Mileage Plus and Zip code.
-Say “more options”
-Say “apply for a Mileage Plus Visa”.

This will transfer you to an offshore Chase application call center.

For whatever reason at this point your call center rep will be expecting a mileage plus rep on the phone with an offer code. Just tell them that you are the mileage plus member trying to apply for a card and that you want to know more about the 50,000 miles offer. I had no problem getting the offer every time without any codes.

The Pioneer Of Checked Baggage Fees Is Now Launching A Carry-On Bag Fee…

Update: The fee doesn’t go into effect until 08/01. Perhaps they are waiting to see if there will be a customer backlash before implementing the fee?
I believe that the reason for the delayed start is that they are giving themselves the time to reverse the fee if they see bookings noticeably drop. Now it’s just up to passengers to boycott Spirit. If the fee is successful I have no doubt that it will find it’s way over to other airlines as well.

Related: www.dansdeals.com/baggage

Exactly as I predicted here over 3 years ago in an article entitled “Is “A La Carte” Airline Pricing Inevitable?” Spirit Airlines will now charge for carry-on luggage.

Spirit started the entire vicious cycle by limiting free luggage to just one bag before eliminating it completely.  Now they are charging $30 per bag each way for carry-on luggage if you prepay for it and $45 at the gate.

People scoffed when I suggested that other airlines would copy their lead on checked luggage.  Now the only question is which airline will be first to copy their lead this time…it may not happen very soon but it will happen unless they are forced to back down due to customer backlash.

Continental Mileathon Is Back!

www.continental.com/mileathon

I got 5,000 miles during the last mileathon for opening a Chase and Key Continental debit card.

The bonuses for purchasing tickets and checking in online are generally only for expensive fares only, but the bonuses for opening credit or debit accounts are nice on top of all other offers like 30,000 for a free credit card and 25,000 for a Chase checking account.

Opening a Continental credit card earns 20 credits, a Continental debit card earns 15.  When you register you can see the entire list of credit earning activities and how many credits you need for each mileage threshold.  For example 30 credits earns 5,000 miles and 45 credit earns 10,000 miles, etc.

The first purchase on the credit/debit cards must be made by 05/31 for mileathon credit.  Most other activities must be done by 06/30 for mileathon credit.

Plus the 20,000 entrants who have the most Hilton points will get 20% of their Hilton balance back as free Priority Club points, up to 20,000.  I’m unfortunately sitting on 200,000 devalued Hilton points…but 20,000 free Priority Club points would be quite nice!

The “Luckiest Loser” gets 2 million points!

You need to upload a screenshot of your Hilton balance to prove your point balance.

So, how many Hilton points do you have?

Priority Club PointBreaks Linky

The current list is valid from now through 06/30/10.

I stayed using PointBreaks in Toronto And Tiberias, Israel and got great rooms at both hotels even though the hotel is only reimbursed $30/night on PointBreaks stays.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 Priority Club points.  If you already have 5,000 Priority Club points in your account then you can buy 5,000 points for $30 as described below

If you don’t have points yet Priority Club sells 5,000 points for $67.50, or you can instantly transfer 5,000 AMEX MR points into Priority Club points.

After you have 5,000 points in your account you can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel using cash and points for $60+5,000 points. When you cancel the hotel you will get 15,000 points in your account, in other words the cost per 5,000 points is $30 after you already have 5,000 points in your account.

Sample hotels: (Hotels have a limited amount of PointBreaks rooms and will be taken off the lost once they sell out.)
Crowne Plaza Jerusalem
Crowne Plaza Prague
Holiday Inn Express Lisbon
Holiday Inn Express Barcelona
Holiday Inn Express Vancouver
Intercontinental Presidente Monterrey, Mexico
Intercontinental Presidente Puebla, Mexico

On The Road…

I’m in beautiful and sunny Palm Springs, CA for the next 10 days, where the high today is 90! Definitely on on the toasty side, but a nice departure from the freezing weather in Cleveland that we’ve had for the past week…

Have a happy and kosher Pesach to all of my readers wherever they may find themselves for the holiday!

Updates may be sporadic until I return to Cleveland on April 8th.
