These offers are for two different products.

$ 29.95 = Skyguide http://www.eskyguide.com/

$199.00 = Skyguide Club http://www.skyguideclub.com/index.asp

Actually, they're the same thing. Click through the links and they link to each other. They're also both for the Executive Privilege Club.

I have a healthy bit of skepticism for the companion ticket, but the lounge benefit sounds awesome. Will see if this works.

They are not the "same thing". The Club includes a Skyguide subscription, along with other benefits. This explains why there are offers at substantially prices for the subscription alone or bundled as part of the club membership.

Am I misreading this or do they only reimburse guest passes through January 2007? Do you remember where you found this clause, because I don't see the club benefit listed anywhere else as a limited-time offer? Thanks.

the 29.95 sounds like the price of the magazine for the year. not the credit card fee.

Just an update, I received my $50 check from "American Express Publishing" today. So, they DO reimburse the full amount for day passes.

So did you sign up for the $2.99 for six month offer. I am thinking of doing this for the lounge benefits. But in reading this thread and the details of the offer I got from AMEX I am still not completely sure what I am getting.

Does sound tempting since its only $2.99.

I just joined and it says it will be 4-6 weeks before I receive my membership kit. Is it possible to use the $50 airline club benefit between now and when I receive the kit or do I have to wait for specific forms that are in the kit? The sign-up confirmation says I can start using benefits right away by going through the web site but I can't find anything specific to the airline club benefits in terms of forms and procedures.

I've called the 888 info number but after going through myriad "if this, then please press this" automated connections, I got a final "We're sorry. All our agents are currently busy. Please call back again during our business hours of .... Good-bye." Not a good indicator of top-notch service, to say the least.

I mailed in the recepit with a note indicating my membership number and address, and thats it. In fact, the day I got the membership kit, I cancelled, so you don't need the forms.

I haven't heard of this before. Do you have a link that you can share?

SkyGuide Executive Privilege Club

I got this offer via email today with 6 months free membership, companion airfare and annual membership of $29.95. Anybody else received this offer? What do you think; value for money? Is this mid-tier between Plat and Gold?
