Best Current Promo?

What is currently the best promo for switching to ATT (miles or otherwise)? I need to leave MCI and rejoin later for the NWA FFF2 promo, and am looking to pick up a little something for my troubles.

1K miles with CO for 5 months each (total of 5K miles).

Also there are several additional promos for switching to online bill payment. e.g.
http://www.att.com/starwood/

If you are switching to AT&T and then quickly switching back to MCI - you may not have much luck with these promos. Once you switch away from AT&T they will stop processing of any pending rewards.

Do you think that I would get ant ATT benefit if I switched today, then hung with them until mid-July before switching back to MCI for FFF2?

PG: This is an exellent tip. Unfortunately I have already online-billing and AT&T did not except my online application.
Then I tried to cancel the online-billing (and apply again)... did not see anything on the website to cancel?!
Any ideas? 2,000 starpoints would be nice.

Cactuspete:

If and when you switch, cancel ANY AND ALL SERVICES with MCI. Otherwise MCI will still charge you with services (800-number, calling card etc.) you never ordered but MCI installed them for you.

Also, if you cancel MCI, be prepared for a barage of telemarketing calls. I have caller ID, and any "OUT OF AREA" calls go straight to voicemail. Consequently, I was getting literally 20-30 hangups on my answering machine a day.

Call MCI in advance of cancellation and opt-out of their telemarketing list.

I was away from att (continental offer) for 3 months, then came back with continental. Rep said that you have to be away 6 months if you want continental again. Of course they did not tell me this when I signed up. Is there a way around this.

Can I sign up for a non continental offer instead.

I just checked this link and it must be old, as there was nothing about ATT there. Are any good offers out there for LD? I'm just about to the end of my 6 months for 10K Delta on MCI (and 9,000 have actually posted already) - so I'm thinking it will soon be time to switch.

Can we sign up with the One Pass promotion for the 5K and then sign up for the 2k Starwood online billing? I would really prefer all Starwood, but don't see any straight sign up bonus with them.

Anyone have a number I can call to sign up for AT&T and starwood points? I don't have a carrier yet. Thanks!
