Q for Starwood Cardholders

Quick question - For Starwood, I see that a 99999 point limit for asiamiles.. I called Starwood and they couldnt say if it was a per year or per cardholder
basis. Does anyone have experience to offer? My business goes thru about $20-25k of supplies per month put thru a 1.5% cash back card. So it'd take about 4 months for the card to top itself out... But Its certainly nice for some extra miles to upgrade with. I'm thinking of starting with Asiamiles, then AAdvantage, then Mileage Plan?

Oh... does it help my MPC status? Far fetch but heck.....

I found a loophole to bounce the charges off two credit cards and earn both the 1.5% AND Starwood points
