At 10AM they will be selling one day rental vouchers good for premium cars for $30.
They will also be selling one year of Avis Chairman status for $1,200.

Avis Chairman is as close as you can get to royalty while you travel. And it’s oh so much fun!
-When you reserve a midsize you are guaranteed a free upgrade to the best car on their lot. Caddy, Infiniti, Camaro SS, it’s yours.
-They’ll deliver and pickup your rental car wherever you want.
-You don’t have to refill the tank, you get charged below-market rates and just pay for whatever amount of gas you use.
-At most airports they’ll bring the car to the terminal if you ask them to, they’ll also always drive you back to your flight in the car instead of taking the shuttle.
-Anything you request will be in the car for you (newspaper, water, soda etc,)

Here is a fun flyertalk thread from the perspective of a non-Chairman with replies from several Avis managers.  Then again any thread that starts off “I had only heard rumors these people existed” when you’re one of those people makes for a good read.  :)

Scroll, Drag and Drop
Easily sift through long lists and files with a natural swirling motion. Then point, drag and drop those files wherever you want them. You’ve never sorted things out quite so quickly.

Rotate
Sometimes you want to adjust the onscreen image clockwise or counter-clockwise–for a presentation, a photo album, or simply to enjoy better viewing. The touch screen makes it a cinch–using just the tip of your finger.

Zoom In and Out
Study the details of a picture. Read the fine print. Or simply punctuate your latest point. The touchscreen lets you zoom in and out with a simple two-finger motion. You’ll save time and keystrokes–and have some fun in the process.”

Poll: What Do You Do With Your Starwood Starpoints?

-Starwood AMEX Linky 

 The US Mint should be able to help you there in no time!
-Starpoints Rewards Catalog Linky
-dansdeals.com/forums, where experts will tackle your mileage questions.
-Just Made My First LAN Bookings!
-Get An Incredible Value Out Of Starpoints With LAN’s OneWorld Chart!!!
-“I Got Approved For The AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card…Now What Do I Do With The Points?”

-Starwood’s Best Hotel Redemption Option May Not Be Available Online.

Starwood points are easily the most valuable mileage currency that exists today.  The main reason for that is their flexibility and myriad of uses. The Starwood AMEX card is generally the best credit card for spending because the Starpoints that you earn from spending are just that good!

So what do you usually use them for?

{democracy:16}

Use 1: Unrestricted hotel rewards with no blackout dates.

This is the traditional award use in the Starwood program and why people like the hotel reward system more than the airline reward system.  Award flights are not always available, you have to be flexible and you need to be good at checking availability on partners.  During peak times you may just need to pay double miles for a flight if you are not flexible.  Whereas if a hotel is selling a standard room you can use the same amount of points for it no matter the time of year.  Even if there’s a major event in town and paid rates are a fortune, you can still redeem the same amount of points for a room.

Starwood divides unrestricted hotel room rewards into 7 different hotel categories, generally based on their average rates.
Category 1: 2,000 points weekends, 3,000 points weekdays.
Category 2: 3,000 points weekends, 4,000 points weekdays.
Category 3: 7,000 points, 5th night free.
Category 4: 10,000 points, 5th night free.
Category 5: 12,000 points, 5th night free.
Category 6: 20,000 points, 5th night free.
Category 7: 30,000 points, 5th night free.
(When you redeem for 5 nights using an unrestricted hotel room award for hotels in categories 3-7 the 5th night is free!)

Use 2: Cash & Points hotel rewards

Unlike the traditional unrestricted award, cash and points are capacity controlled.  To make matters worse the online availability is often wrong and you need to call up Starwood to book cash and points. For category 1 and 2 hotels there is almost never availability shown online and you will need to call up Starwood. Sometimes even if Starwood shows no availability you can still call the hotel and try to get them to book you a cash & points stay.

It’s a lot of work, but cash & points can offer an incredible value when available. I’ve gotten $500 rooms for just 2,800 Starpoints + $45 for a night with Cash And Points. Using a traditional category 3 award that would value each Starpoint at 7.1 cents each ($500/7,000 Starpoints), but with Cash & Points that’s a value of over 16 cents per Starpoint! ($500-$45=$455/2,800 Starpoints=16.25 cents per point. And that’s not even counting the upgrade from the room into a 3 balcony suite normally costing over $1,500 per night!)

Category 1: 1,200 points+$25
Category 2: 1,600 points+$30
Category 3: 2,800 points+$45
Category 4: 4,000 points+$60
Category 5: 4,800 points+$90
Category 6: 8,000 points+$150
Category 7: N/A

Use 3: Transfer them into airline miles.

You can transfer Starpoints into miles with dozens of airlines.  20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles on most of them.  Plus there are a few gems like:

-LAN (OneWorld) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 50,000 kilometers.  That’s enough kilometers for 4 round-trip tickets between London and Paris on BA or 3 round-trip tickets between NYC and Toronto or Montreal without any fuel surcharges.

-ANA (Star Alliance) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles.  You can redeem fly to Israel on Star Alliance partners ContinentalUnited or USAirways for just 60,000 miles round-trip in coach or 90,000 in business without any fuel surcharges.

-Air France/KLM Flying Blue (Skyteam) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles.  25,000 miles enough for a round-trip ticket from rotating North American cities to Europe, Russia, or even Israel during promo periods, albeit saddled with a few hundred dollars of European-style fuel surcharges.

-AA (OneWorld) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles.  AA has amazing award availability, one-way tickets on all redemptions, no fuel surcharges, and awesome OneWorld “Round-The-World” awards.  They’re also partners with El Al so you can redeem AA miles to fly to Israel on El Al, even if you just need a one-way.  It’s just 20,000 miles one-way between Europe and Israel on El Al or 45,000 miles one-way between the US and Israel.  Plus AA still counts all miles earned, even miles transferred in from Starwood, to help you get to 1 million total lifetime miles when you get goodies like lifetime elite status with free systemwide upgrades with an international address.

-Air Canada (Star Alliance) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles.  80,000 miles miles are enough for a round-trip Business Class ticket and 100,000 miles are enough for a First Class ticket on any Star Alliance airline 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.

-USAirways (Star Alliance) where 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles.  This can be a good option for Star Alliance redemptions as they have extremely lax routing rules and very generous award hold policies.  There is a small award redemption fee, but at least they don’t charge a phone redemption fee for Star Alliance tickets.  A Star Alliance round-trip ticket to Israel is 80,000 miles in coach and 120,000 miles in Business.

There are dozens of other point transfer options…likely each loaded with gems still waiting to be discovered!

Use 4: Nights & Flights Combo Award.

With this great redemption option you get 50,000 miles (or 100,000 LAN kilometers) and 5 nights of unrestricted hotel nights.  It’s only good for category 3 and 4 hotels.  For 50,000 miles and 5 nights in a category 3 hotel it costs 60,000 Starpoints.  For 50,000 miles and 5 nights in a category 4 hotel it costs 70,000 Starpoints.

There are tons of other Starpoint uses that I’m not a big fan of, including:
-SPG flights
-Transferring to Amtrak Points
-SPG Moments Auctions
-50% Off Rack Rate Award
-Room/Suite upgrades.
-Gift Card Redemptions
-Instant Awards

The reason I’m not a big fan of these options is because it is hard to get the same value out of your points using these methods as you can using the other methods. Feel free to sound off in the comments if you disagree!

WSJ: Continental-United Merger Coming Monday.

WSJ Article Linky

Monday will be a sad day for Continental fans.  The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Continental and United will announce that they are planning to merge on Monday.

The United name will survive, as will their headquarters in Chicago.  The merger will create the largest airline in the world if it passes regulatory muster.

A merger will mean means higher fares and one less option to rely on for award ticket availability.

Frankly, there’s little I like about United.

Granted, I haven’t flown them since I swore off them 2 years ago, but still…

-They have an incredibly incompetent offshore call center that makes dealing with their phone agents a nightmare.

-United.com is one of the worst and least functional websites in the industry, far behind the functionality on Continental.com.

-Their clubs aren’t nearly as good as Continental’s.  Alcohol cost money in United clubs, Wi-Fi is run by T-Mobile instead of an open network, and pests are common occurrences in many United clubs.

-Their planes are dirty and poorly maintained (Via airliners.net, taken on 03/18/10):

-Their employees seem to be truly unhappy to be working there, many are downright surly.

-They have evil Starnet blocking in place that doesn’t allow you full access to Star Alliance partner award flights, even if they are made available for reward redemption.  No other airline does this.

-United doesn’t let you make any changes to Star Alliance tickets after departure and charges for routing changes on award tickets.  Continental allows you to always make changes and does not charge for routing changes.

Yes, there are some good things, economy plus, no expedite fees on rewards, but for me the bad far outweighs the good.

My only hope is in the fact that Continental’s CEO, Jeff Smisek, will become the new CEO of the merged airline while United’s CEO, Glenn Tilton, will become Chairman for 2 years before also giving that role to Smisek.

If Continental’s management team will be calling the shots maybe this thing will have a chance to be bearable.

Finally, I see little hope for Cleveland to remain a hub.  Continental and United currently have hubs in:

-Chicago (ORD)

-Cleveland

-Denver

-Houston

-Los Angeles

-Newark

-S. Francisco

-Washington (IAD)

There is a compelling argument to keep pretty much all of those hubs in place except Cleveland.  United already abandoned their hub in Cleveland hub back in 80’s.  I’ll bet that United ditches Cleveland once again if this merger is completed.

Bad news all around in my opinion…

Goodbye Continental, it was nice flying an airline that cared…

Hyatt Gold Passport Devaluation…

Update: The award chart changes and FAQ’s have now been posted on Hyatt.com.

Hyatt currently only has 5 reward categories, but they have just announced that they will be adding a new category 6. There will be 20 category 6 hotels and they will cost 22,000 points per night.

In all 65 hotels will be shifted to a lower category and 89 will go to a higher category.

I see this as a preemptive devaluation with the Hyatt credit card that is expected to launch very soon. With an influx of points expected in the system there has to be a devaluation at some point, although few expected it to come even before the launch of the credit card. Definitely an interesting strategy to devalue before trying to attract new customers with a credit card launch.  Definitely classier than devaluing the year after launching, but interesting nonetheless.

Reservations can be made though 06/03 under the current chart and those reservations can be modified through 09/02 under the current award chart.
