Pittburgh Post-Gazette Goofs, Tries To Shift Blame To Jetblue…

As much as I hate to harp on Pittsburgh’s high quality press, this journalism faux pas just can’t be overlooked.

Back on June 27th some loyal Pittsburgh readers alerted me to a Post-Gazette article about an absolutely incredible Jetblue promotion, which I and many others were able to take advantage of.

At the time I cautioned that the newspaper had goofed and neglected to give the real way to receive the free ticket:


That article just says that you get a free ticket by booking on Jetblue.com-it neglects to mention that you NEED TO REGISTER FIRST, or even how to register!
(Insert Pittsburgh newspaper joke here…)



This Sunday Dan Fitzpatrick, who wrote the original article, wrote a follow-up article for the Post-Gazette entitled, “Confusion over 2-for-1 offer frustrates JetBlue customers.”

Mr. Fitzpatrick, who never even clearly ponies up to writing the original misleading article, chooses to insert choice quotes from the locals regarding Jetblue such as, “They certainly haven’t gained my loyalty.”

Hey Dan-It was your poor reporting that caused all of the problems.
Go back to your editors and have them work with Jetblue to rectify the issue!

Thanks Marty C. for the heads-up…

Many times it is better to book possible price mistakes on 3rd party websites, like travelocity or expedia, which may be more likely to stand behind the ticket.

The price does not appear to be showing up on travelocity, so expeida is probably the way to go.

Air France’s site does have a good flexible search to find valid dates.

-Travel between November And March.
-Travel not valid on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Have The American Express Travelers Cheque Card? Buy 2,750 Starpoints For Just $5!

Update: I just noticed that there is an another offer for existing cheque cardholders to get $500 in hotel savings if you buy $500 in travelers cheques.

Note: As AMEX is no longer issuing new Travelers Cheque Cards, this deal is only for existing cheque cardholders!

Long-time readers may recall a sweet deal that I posted way back in November 2005 for the American Express Travelers Cheque Card.

The offer was for free Delta Skymiles for purchasing the card.

The neat thing about the card was that you could fill it up with cash using any AMEX credit card.

The card had the following terms:

-Maximum card balance: $2,750

-Refill fee: $5

-Refill limit: Once every 14 days

-ATM withdrawal fee: $2.50 + the ATM’s fee.

-Maximum daily ATM withdrawal amount: $400

I did the deal for the free miles and then filed away the card away in the great black hole where I store all of my canceled cards.

Fast-forward 2 years: Today I got a letter from AMEX informing me that they were ending the program, and that I had until 09/30 to refill the card, and that on 10/31 they would refund any remaining funds on the card.

Sounds like 9/30 will be a good time to charge $2,750 to my Starwood AMEX and then wait for the refund check after 10/31!

Gizmodo: American Express Honoring Price Protection For iPhones…

The popular Gizmodo blog writes that AMEX is processing price protection claims for $200 refunds to people who bought the iPhone before last week’s $200 price-cut.

Only problem? AMEX discontinued their price-protection program (called BVG, or Best Value Guarantee) last year. No current AMEX card is advertised as offering any kind of price protection.

Additionally, return protection only covers items up to $300.

Sure, AMEX will take the claim, but the examiner will just reject the claim because its not covered!

Now if anyone wants to just file a chargeback against Apple for knocking 33% off the price of the iPhone just months after its release, that may just work!

At any rate, later this week we should have the info on how to get the $100 Apple Store credit for you early-adopters who just wouldn’t listen to my advice regarding the 1st generation iPhone…

Starwood AMEX Personal Card Goes Up To $45 After The First Free Year.

The Starwood AMEX personal card annual fee went up from $30 to $45 this past week.

The fee for the first year continues to be waived.

For now, the business card still costs $30 after the first free year.

Because the points earned from the card are automatically transferred into the Starwood program, you can cancel the card without losing any points.

Additionally, because the Starwood AMEX is churnable, you can cancel the card and sign up for the card again to get the signup bonus and another free year!

Alternatively you can try calling up AMEX when you get the annual fee, and ask them to waive it.

Regardless of the fee increase, the card continues to offer an outstanding value:

-$45 is still lower than the $85 charged by the major airlines.

-90 day return privilege not offered on other low-cost AMEX cards.

-20,000 points transfers into 25,000 miles on over 30 airlines, so you get more miles per dollar spent, and you’re not tied to 1 airline.

-Many hotel stay options at any of Starwood’s numerous hotel brands: Unrestricted awards, Cash & Points, Nights & Flights, 5th Night Free, etc.

-20,000 points transfers into 50,000 kilometers on LAN.

-Free Starwood preferred plus status: Free upgrades, 4pm starwood checkouts, and free starpoints transfers to household accounts.

Confirmed: Starwood Nights & Flights Works With LAN!!!

Starwood Nights & Flights is one of the many excellent ways to use Starpoints.

60,000 starpoints gets you 5 nights in a category 3 hotel(normally 7,000 starpoints/night) and 50,000 miles in your choice of over 25 airline programs.


The only problem is that according to the fine print it won’t work with LAN, which offers some of the best values out of all the Starwood airline transfer options.

LAN is a OneWorld alliance member, and offers some amazing values for flying them and for partners.

A regular transfer of 20,000 starpoints yields 25,000 miles on most airlines, however it yields 50,000 kilometers on LAN, which is more than enough kilometers for a normally $1,000+ ticket to Brazil.

Logic dictates that with Nights & Flights, Starwood is “giving” you 40,000 points to be transferred into an airline, which equals 50,000 miles. So why shouldn’t that give me 100,000 kilometers on LAN?


“This Award is only offered with airlines with a 1 Starpoint to 1 Airline mile transfer ratio. The maximum transfer to the airline offered in this award is 50,000 miles, so it is each member’s responsibility to verify with their desired airline the value of these miles for air travel awards.”

The problem is that since LAN is 1:2, and would give 100,000 kilometers, it may not work with Nights & Flights.


Not to be deterred, I decided to push my luck and try to do a Nights & Flights with LAN.

For 60,000 Starpoints I successfully booked a 5 day stay at the category 3 Sheraton Jerusalem Plaza Hotel, and asked for the airline portion to go to LAN.

“Sir, you will only get 50,000 kilometers instead of 100,000 if you transfer to LAN via Nights & Flights.”

“That’s OK, let’s go for it anyway.”

So I did it, it was probably pretty stupid, but I had a hunch that it would work…


And it did!

It took a longer than usual 3 weeks, but I got the 100,000 LAN kilometers from the Nights & Flights transfer!

American Express $130 “Goodwill Credits” Have Posted!!!

Update: Read the comments for a totally bizarre discovery, to top off this entire bizarre affair, posted by “the credit.”


History:

Back in December 2006 Amex ran a promotion offering $250 cash for applying for select AMEX business cards.

For old time’s sake, here are the original threads:

Original Post (17 comments)

Promo FAQ’s (22 comments)

Cards Roundup (8 comments)

What Did You Apply For? (27 comments)

AMEX Loses The Apps (14 comments)

The lucky ones were the people who applied for the Amex Business Platinum, which at the time was $300/year, but should’ve only been $50 after the $250 rebate.

At the time that card’s main benefits were

-Free Access to Continental PC/Delta CRC/Northwest WC/AMEX Airport Clubs.

-Starwood Gold Status.

-Reimbursement On Lost Items.

-Platinum Concierge Services.


Since then, the card has gone up to $395/year, and added

-Free access to Regus business offices worldwide.

-Free access to AAmerican AC Airport Clubs.

-Free companion ticket on all $299+ domestic tickets.


This is where it started to get strange.

As far as I know, AMEX has not yet charged the annual fee to anyone who applied for the Business Platinum card during the promotion, so the card until now has cost me negative $250.

Then last month I received a cryptic letter from AMEX, apologizing for losing my original application, and offering a $130 credit and asking me to call them back to apply for a card. (I didn’t)

Today my Business Platinum account online is showing a $130 credit as a “Goodwill Gesture!”

Total cost of the amazing card to date: Negative $380!

Airport clubs accessed, year to date:

Continental (and affiliated) President’s Clubs: Chicago/ORD, Cleveland, Houston, Los Angeles, NYC/La Guardia, Newark, Tel Aviv.

AMEX Centurion Lounge: S. Paulo, Brazil.

Starwood Gold Upgrades: Herrod’s Vitalis Spa Eilat, Le Meridian Haifa, Sheraton Jerusalem, Sheraton LAX, Sheraton Tiberias, Westin LAX.
