Any experts on using BA miles here?  Are there any other good uses for BA miles except for AA domestic/AA Hawaii and South America tickets?

I booked a business ticket JFK-HKG (stop)-DPS, SIN-BKK (stop) -HKG-JFK for 100K miles. It was a great deal and Cathay Pacific was wonderful.  Taxes were around $280.  The Air Asia ticket from DPS to SIN cost me $64.00

Looks like it can be used at travelocity incentives which is a little more restrictive than travelocity, but seems like a good deal if you need a hotel for sure

My reply was to muttman as it implied that this would only work if you have a SPG AMEX card

I don't think you need to have the SPG amex to get it though.  I already have it so didnt bother, but seems trying over chat is the best way

On The Road / Free SPG Gold for a Year

Just saw this.  People have said they have been given a year of SPG gold status by calling up 1-888-625-4990 and mentioning code UI.

Additionally, people have been doing it online by going to, clicking on Customer Support-->Online Chat and making the same request.

craigslist is usually great, but you never know what you will get.  Wine stores also tend to be helpful for smaller boxes for books as they throw out 100s daily.  I've bought boxes from HD in the past and they were surprisingly much cheaper than most other locations (in Brooklyn that is) as boxes ranged from 0.59 to 1.79 each
