The One Type Of POINTS Every "Travel Hacker" Should Collect + The BEST Ways To Collect Them...


News flash: First Class is not what it used to be. The days where those extra miles and dollars equated to a chair most commonly found in your grandfathers basement are gone. First Class today is an extra sensory experience from the time you reach the airport curb, to the moment you step into a spacious shower at 33,000 feet before settling into your enclosed private suite with fully flat bed. For these kind of experiences, there's one type of points which are consistently the best (require the least of them) and surprisingly, they're not even airline miles!

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Points Unlock All The Tricks...

Since the pop culture explosion of using miles for amazing experiences hit, many of the best opportunities, the most "straight forward" opportunities, have disappeared. They increased the number of miles to keep so many people from partaking. You now need to use obscure partner programs, airline partners of the airline you actually want to fly, who offer the best rates using miles on the airline you actually want to fly. There in lies the problem. None of these obscure partners are available for transfer for your credit card points. There's no way to get those points unless you actually fly with them. Almost. Enter SPG...

With SPG You Unlock Asiana, Japan Airlines And Many More...

Want to fly Lufthansa First Class? The best way is to use Asiana Miles. Want to fly Emirates First Class? The best way is to use Japan Airlines miles. How do you get these miles? Fly a lot, and I do mean a lot, or earn Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) points. For a fraction of what the other programs (including the airline you'll fly themselves) would charge, you can experience the worlds best by utilizing the unique ability to transfer points at a 1:1 or better ratio to these programs. For every 20,000 SPG points you transfer you get a 5,000 bonus. That's 80,000 SPG points turned into 100,000 Airline miles of your choice...

What Are The Best (And Easiest) Ways To Collect SPG Points?

Smart! A wonderful thing just happened which doubled your earning potential! American Express offers a Starwood Preferred Guest credit card in many markets around the world. The card offers between 10,000-30,000 points to get you started. Since Marriott and Starwood have now merged, you can convert Marriott points into Starwood points at a 3:1 ratio. Since Marriott also offers a credit card in most worldwide markets, many with sign up bonuses of over 80,000 points, you can secure nearly 30,000 SPG points from that card as well. Of course, you'll get a full point for every dollar you spend and more on hotels. Additionally, if you're close to something magical, you can buy SPG points in their lucrative sales...
