Yes, that's a lot of money. Much more cost effective to make WN mileage runs, and put all that extra spend on the Starwood card, I'd think, for flexibility.

If you get to A-List between now and March 1, you'll have it through 12/31/12. And I wouldn't be surprised if existing A-Listers get some kind of fast-track offer to preferred, or get a "leg-up" somehow. Might be time to make some credit runs.
