An article on CNN today talks about how one man is redeeming 2,000,000 Virgin miles for a free flight into space.
Also interesting was that the cost of the trip with real currency for the rest of the 1,000 people blasting off to weightlessness in 2009 is $200,000, which pegs the worth of 1 mile at .10, at the high end of typical thinking into the value of a mile…

Any longtime readers of mine can tell you that I’m a big fan of airline credit cards. They offer huge signup bonuses, have great benefits(discounts on paid tickets, cheaper mileage tickets, free luggage shipping, etc, etc.) and the best part is that most of them keep on giving you the bonus every time you get a new card!
I am also an outspoken critic of the scams by the fake airline card companies, that offer “No blackout dates” especially the worst scammer and false advertiser of them all, Capital One. In short, while with a true airline miles card you can get great values like business tickets to Australia worth $9,000 for just 90,000 miles(a value of .10/mile) there so-called miles cards(Like the Capital One card) never can be used for more than .01/mile, and that’s in a best-case scenario, often you’ll get much less than that measly amount. No wonder they have “no blackout dates”…
That being said, the absolute best credit card for big spenders is the Starwood Amex
They offer 3 starpoints/dollar spent at any Starwood hotel chain, and 1 Starpoint per dollar spent everywhere else.
What’s so good about that?
You can transfer 20,000 starpoints for 25,000 real airline miles on almost any airline you could possibly want miles on!
The best part about that (besides for the 25% bonus) is that you can wait until you find an award ticket that you want, and then transfer it to the airline of your desire.
So why haven’t I pushed this card until now???
-1. I never hold onto an airline card for more than 2 months, so this card simply doesn’t fit my needs.
-2. The public signup bonus is just 4,000 miles (Although there is a special link for 6,000 miles, that can’t touch the 25,000 mile airline offers)
-3. To get that 25% bonus you need to transfer 20,000 starpoints, so this is only for spenders!
The annual fee is waived for 1 year, afterwards it is just $30.
The card also comes with great benefits such as
-Amex Best Value Guarantee
-Amex Return Protection.
-Amex Buyer’s Assurance
-Amex Purchase Protection
Read more about those benefits in the terms and conditions of the card…
At any rate here’s the application for 6,000 starpoints at signup:
Starwood Amex Linky
The SPG Amex also gives 1,000 miles for your first stay at a starwood(see spg.com for a full list of hotel chains) and 500 miles thereafter during the first year, up to 5,000 miles.
When you charge even a soda at the bar of an SPG it counts as a stay…

I’ve received tons of email asking for clarification on my post about the citibank 10,000 mile offer including many people asking the same questions, so i figure it’s worth a post…
1. How do I link the AAdvantage credit card to the citibank account?
Here’s how to do that:
-Login to your citibank checking account online
-Go to “Accounts”
-Go to “Link An Account”
-Go to “Link Accounts to an ATM/Debit Card” (Yes, I know it says Atm/debit card, but this is how you link a credit card as well.)
-Enter in your AAdvantage credit card number.
-Check back the next day and when you login it should display the AAdvantage card balance.
-Don’t forget to fulfill all of the other conditions, and then get the miles!
2. How do I get the account with no monthly fee?
Citi waives the monthly fee if there is $1500 in the account, if there is direct deposit, or if there are 2 payments paid per month.
To make 2 payments is easy, just pay off 2 credit card bills/month.
Don’t have credit card bills to pay monthly?
Just have it automatically send out 2 checks for $1 each to other members of your family, to set that up:
-Go to “Payments”
-Go to “Add A New Payee”
-Type in the name and address of the family member.
-Go back to “Payments”
-Go to “Set up a recurring payment”
-Set it up to send out a $1 check on the 1st of every month.
-Repeat this process for 1 more person and never worry about the monthly fee again!
3. Do I earn 5% now on all of the money in my checking account?
To get the 5% interest you must transfer the money out of your checking account and into your e-savings account.
To do so:
-Go to “Transfers”
-Go to “Make a One-Time Transfer” under the “to your linked citi accounts” tab.
-Select from checking to e-savings
-Type in the amount, and it will be instantly transferred.
You can still withdraw money from it from any atm machine using the savings account option.
4. Does citi offer free atm access to other banks?
If you apply online with an address in a county in which there are no citibank branches then you will be allowed 5 free transaction per month.
Citi will waive their own fee, and reimburse you for the other bank’s fee.
Citi also has thousands of atm’s in 7-11′s nationwide to withdraw money from.
Want to get money into your e-savings account, but don’t have a citibank in your city?
You can just deposit your money into a local bank, then logon to your citibank account online, go to the “transfer” section, then “link an external account,” and then specify the amount of money you want to transfer from your local account into your e-savings account. There is no charge for this ACH transfer.
Hopefully that cleared up some of the confusion…

They are the people that take care of those who complain the the BBB or their state’s attorney general.

Update-12:30pm: As I predicted last night Continental has indeed matched the $78 fare from lga-cle (in fact if you have their credit card it’s only $74!)
All nonstop Airtran routes are on the biggest sale of the year.
Tickets must be bought by 9/22-11:59pm edt. Travel must be completed by 12/13. 11/16-11/28 and all fridays and sundays are blacked out. 10 day advance purchase required. One-way tickets permitted.
Note to Chasanim coming into Cleveland to study with Rabbi Chaikin: Now is a good time to book tickets from NYC to Akron-$78 Round-Trip is the lowest this route has ever been!(Although my guess is that Continental will match this fare into Cleveland by tomorrow morning, knocking 20 minutes off the drive)
