Are You Elite?
« on: May 29, 2008, 02:24:24 AM »
Elite status perks make traveling so much more fun!
Who's currently got status?

I'll start:
AA: Lifetime Gold/One World Ruby
Continental: Silver Elite/Skyteam Elite
United: 3P/Star Alliance Silver
Starwood: Gold
Avis: Chairman

Starwood gold, that's about it.

But I actually earned my gold by spending $30,000 on my Starwood Amex.

For airline lounge info just start a new thread.

As far as how I personally earned elite status:
AA I got from getting 1,000,000 lifetime miles.  (AA is the only airline that counts all miles towards lifetime status.)
Continental was via flying over 25K EQM's during 2007.
United was gifted to me from a friend.
Starwood Gold is from my AMEX Platinum card.
