Comprehensive Starwood Program Refresher!

Update: Multiple users are reporting having success at getting approved multiple times for the same Starwood card without canceling the previous card. See the comments for more info.


Starwood AMEX Consumer Credit Card Linky
Starwood AMEX Business Credit Card Linky

Churning Info:

Both versions of the card are fully churnable, meaning that you can earn another signup bonus each time that you apply for a new card!

AMEX, unlike Chase and Citi, may not let you have more than one of the same card.

In other words, you can have a Starwood consumer and a Starwood business card, however you may not be able to get 2 Starwood consumer or 2 Starwood business cards at the same time.

Therefore you might want to cancel your current Starwood consumer or business card before applying for the same card again.

The fee for both Starwood cards continue to be waived for the first year.

When you apply for a Starwood card online you will get an approval decision within 60 seconds along with the amount of your new credit line!

You may have good luck and be able to get another 2,500 bonus points for adding an additional cardmember for free when you call up AMEX to activate your new card after you receive it in the mail.


Program Background:

Starwood Preferred Guest is a loyalty program, just like any airline’s mileage program, except that Starwood is a hotel brand and the currency is Starpoints.

Starwood hotels include chains such as Sheraton, Westin, and W hotels.

You can manage your Starwood Preferred Guest on the Starwood website: www.spg.com

You will never lose your Starpoints by canceling the Starwood credit card. The points you earn are automatically transferred by AMEX into your Starwood Preferred Guest account every month. AMEX will never take back points once they are deposited into your Starwood Preferred Guest account.

Another great benefit of the program is the ability to transfer Starpoints between household accounts for free! (Raise your hand if you wish that your favorite mileage program had the same benefit…)

If you apply for a Starwood card without providing AMEX with your Starwood Preferred Guest member number you will be automatically assigned a new Starwood Preferred Guest member number by AMEX.

Just call AMEX to find out what the number is. If you have been assigned more than one Starwood Preferred Guest member number, just call up starwood to merge the accounts.



Card Benefits:

You earn 1 starpoint per dollar spent. There is currently no points/mileage currency in the world that I know of that is more valuable than Starpoints, which is why this is my favorite card on which I do all of my spending!

Both the consumer and business Starwood AMEX cards come with AMEX’s premium return privilege-if you don’t like something that you bought for up to $300 on the card, you have 90 days to return it to AMEX for a refund!

Both cards get you Preferred Plus status in the Starwood Preferred Guest. This allows you to get free late check-out and space-available room upgrades when staying at Starwood hotels.

If you spend $30,000 on either card within 1 year, you will be upgraded to Gold status in the Starwood Preferred Guest program.

The business card also comes with AMEX Open Savings, use it when you buy a Delta or Jetblue ticket and get an automatic 3% statement rebate. Use it at Fedex/Kinko’s and many other places and get an automatic 5% statement rebate!



Redemption Options:

The possibilities for Starpoints are practically endless. One of the great aspects of the program is that you are effectively hedging your bets by earning Starpoints instead of miles. If you earn miles with one carrier, you are limited to the availability of that carrier and its’ alliance members. With Starpoints you will always have dozens of possible avenues to find the availability that you need.

Here are just a few of the many redemption possibilities:

-You can redeem them for unrestricted free nights at Starwood hotels starting at 2,000 Starpoints.

-You can redeem them for restricted Cash & Points stays starting at 1,200 points+$25.

-You can transfer them to dozens of airlines worldwide at a 1:1 ratio and get a 5,000 mile bonus for each 20,000 starpoints transferred.

-You can transfer 20,000 Starpoints to LAN and get 50,000 kilometers in the exchange. LAN will even give you 5,000 more kilometers for free just for signing up!
A RT ticket from the US to/from Brazil is just 48,000 kilometers. A RT One-World alliance ticket from the US to Israel is under 100,000 kilometers!

-You can redeem them for a Nights & Flights reward where you book 5 nights at a Starwood hotel stay at the same time as transferring points into an airline. There is a significant Starpoints savings by redeeming in this manner.

-You can transfer 20,000 Starpoints into 25,000 Amtrak points which transfer into 125,000 Choice privileges (Enough for over 6 nights at $350 Manhattan hotels!).

-You can also then transfer 250,000 Choice points (40,000 Starpoints) into 100 Southwest credits, enough for 12 free RT tickets with a yearlong free unlimited use companion pass.



What do you do with your Starpoints? Please post a comment and share!

A Paypal Promotion That Actually Works: $20 Off $50 At Shoebuy!

Just to show that I have nothing against posting a legitimate Paypal deal…

This is a much better deal that the $10 off $30 promotion that Shoebuy occasionally runs because this deal will get you $20 off any 2 pairs of crocs, whereas the $10 off $30 only works on limited styles that are priced at $30 or higher. 

Shoebuy Linky

Shoebuy Crocs Post Linky


Use the following coupon for $20 off $50: PAYPAL20
You must checkout with paypal to use the coupon!

When you register for a new Shoebuy account an additional 10% off is taken off automatically at the final checkout page for the first 60 days that the account is open!

“S.B.S.” left a comment that he got the $20 off and the 10% off when checking out with Paypal.

Shoebuy always offers free shipping and free return shipping!

Paypal: How Not To Run A Promotion 101…

Update: If you did make an order thinking you would get 20% off here is Paypal’s CS email address to check if you qualified in time: customercare@paypal.com
You’re better off emailing than writing because then you have proof in case they promise that you’ll get the cash back and never do.  HT: Asher O.

Paypal has got to be one of the most crooked companies on this planet.

Their marriage to Ebay means that you pretty much must use them and pay their outrageous credit card processing fees when selling on Ebay. Ebay doesn’t allow you to use Google Checkout to process sales because they don’t like competition. (Especially because Google currently charges nothing to process credit cards)

Paypal has also been known to freeze your entire selling account with all of your assets in it for 6 months based on their whims.


Today, Paypal ran a promotion that I purposely didn’t cover.

Normally I have no problem covering companies that I don’t care for, especially when they run a great promo that will cost them big bucks!

At first I was getting ready to run the promotion-Then I read the ridiculous full terms and conditions.
They were purporting to offer a 20% automatic rebate (up to $50 cash back) at a variety of online stores for paying with Paypal.

The automatic rebate would show up as a credit in the user’s paypal account by 01/31/08.

They said that the promo is valid for purchases between 11/26 and 12/10 and that any participating store can be pulled at any time without notice.


Lo and behold they pulled a number of stores such as Dell, Newegg, Toys R US, and others just hours into the promo leaving users scratching their heads. The claim was that there was an “overwhelming response” to the promo.

Now everyone who bought stuff just because of the promo has no idea if they actually qualified for the promo!

There was no confirmation of promo eligibility.

If you ever want to create an obscene amount of badwill during a promotion look no further than Paypal.


Last holiday season Google ran a promotion done right. They offered $10 off every $30 order to all customers with unlimited uses. The $10 off was reflected at checkout. There were no smokescreens about receiving a possible rebate in 2 months time. There was no bait and switch with regard to stores only being eligible for a few hours. At a cost of millions of dollars Google continued to offer the promo even to existing customers throughout the holiday season.

If you ever want to create a significant amount of goodwill during a promotion look no further than Google.

Trust me, you’ll thank me later for not posting this ridiculously stupid promotion.

1st Anniversary Post Linky

Well, today’s the 3rd anniversary of this site, which for me means that I just turned 23 years old!

It’s been an exciting year for me:
-I escaped shaken, but thank G-d miraculously unharmed, from an angry slum uprising in Brazil. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time!
-I was able to experience Israel for my first time, and spent an incredible 3.5 weeks there.
-Ctownbochur.com became Dansdeals.com!
-Dozens of graphic designers submitted logos in a successful logo design competition. They were whittled down to the awesome primary site logo, designed by impactingimage.com, which is displayed for about half of the time. 6 secondary logos were just too good to pass up on and rotate the other half of the time.
-This site has continued to grow, and recorded its’ 500,000th hit in February and its’ millionth hit last month.

It’s also been a year of some incredible deals. Please post a comment about what your favorite deal was!

Thank you for your continued support of this site, for posting helpful comments, and for “spreading the word!”

Roundup Of Nuvis On Sale At Amazon!

There have been tons of deals on the Nuvis this past week, here is some background info:

The Garmin Nuvi is arguably the best GPS system. They are always very highly ranked by Consumer Reports and other rating agencies.

I personally tried out many GPS systems before settling on the Nuvi series, and have never looked back.

They are:
-Very compact and lightweight.
-Much quicker to lock onto satellites than other GPS units.
-Very intuitive and easy to use.
-Have excellent points of interest.

-All of the Nuvis numbered 300 and higher have text-to-speech, meaning that they speak the actual street names that you will need to turn onto. This is a very important feature to look for when you’re buying a GPS unit!

Bluetooth is a nice feature to have on your GPS unit. The Nuvi easily syncs with any bluetooth phone. It will automatically have your entire phone’s phonebook and voice-dialing capabilities. Any outgoing or incoming phone calls will be routed through the Nuvi’s speaker and microphone while you’re driving. The incoming caller’s information will be displayed on the Nuvi, and you will have the option of accepting or rejecting the phone call.

The Nuvi 600 series units retain the compactness of the 300 series, but adds a noticeably bigger and easier to read screen.

Garmin Nuvi 350-$299.95 (Ultra-compact, no bluetooth or traffic)

Garmin Nuvi 360-$329.99 (Ultra-compact, has bluetooth)

Garmin Nuvi 660-$399.99 (Compact, but with a larger screen size, has bluetooth and traffic)

I actually have this hybrid camera+camcorder. It has a very nice, easy to grip, and small form factor. It uses SD cards to store photos and videos. It is incredible for underwater activities like snorkeling, etc!

Besides for having slightly “mushy” buttons, this is a very solid hybrid camera/camcorder.

Who Killed Black Friday?

Black Friday used to be an awesome day, one of my favorite days of the year.

It is always within 4 days of my birthday, so the bargains of the day coincided nicely for me right off the bat.

I remember the good old days (before all the ads were available online weeks beforehand) when I would run out of my dorm first thing Thursday morning and buy the local paper. Back then stores like Best Buy actually had amazing deals.

One year I was able to get 4 $400 cell phones out the door for free after $250 off instantly and a $150 Best Buy rebate without even activating a plan!

Another time I got tons of fairly expensive electronics at CompUSA all for free after rebates.

I went religiously every year and often camped out at stores like Best Buy until 2005. (Besides for when my birthday came out on Black Friday on November 26, 2004, when I was down in S. Paulo, Brazil. I was so down about missing the deals that in a stroke of fate I decided to start a blog called ctownbochur.blogspot.com and shared it with a couple friends on AIM…maybe you’ve heard of it?)

I was always able to make enough money reselling the goodies on Ebay to feed my technology bug for the entire next year.

Last year’s Black Friday sales were lame.

This year’s offerings are worse.

I mean for 364 days out the year, no savvy shopper would ever walk into a Best Buy or CompUSA, but at least they had 1 day of good deals.

Do they think that the Black Friday hype is so great that they can still draw the same crowd while not offering any compelling offers?

Or have they simply gotten smarter and realized that selling items at a loss doesn’t make good business sense. After all the term “Black Friday” is thought to have come from the fact that this was the day when retailers would finally climb out of “the red” and into “the black” for the year, due to it being the busiest shopping day of the year.

It actually made perfect business sense. There were only a very limited number of deeply discounted items, but every store still drew thousands of customers buying other items to make up for it. Besides the best deals were always after rebates, which most people seemingly don’t even bother to apply for.

Black Friday used to be a bunch of marketing hype, but savvy shoppers could still come out ahead.

Now it is all hype, without any of the benefits.

Goodbye Black Friday. It was nice while you lasted.
