+1 to the above. 500K BIS in three years is in the right tail of the distribution even on FT (or left tail depending on your perspective). I hit 1MM BIS at 29 and I think I fly a ton (with for sure...

Agreed with those above. Years when I have been in the low to mid-30s I've missed while years when I've been in the mid 40s to 50s I've made it mostly dependent on the last few years of spend.

I am one of those members. 100% domestic for the last two years of GS, mostly in discounted business fares. This year I have had a lot more C/D fares on the routes I typically frequent so CPM is for...

I have been guilty of manually searching for a Z fare when a P fare gets returned to me multiple times this year in an effort to defend my GS invite. Likely in vain as it has only added $1-2K to my...

I have been caught in this exact situation twice. Once on an LAX > LIH flight and once on an ORD > LHR flight. In both instances F/J was over by 1.

Yes, go through the GS check-in lounge down at the end of the Terminal 1 concourse check-in area (by handicapped services area) and that shoots you right out to the TSA agent at the head of the...

I think SFO is the one hub where the clear escort to the front of the line is similar in efficacy to the GS escort to the "front" of the line? There is no Clear at ORD T1 as of last week so not sure...

Made gold when I was 14 and never looked back. Been a 1K/GS every year since I was 23 (I'm 35 now). If you catch the bug young its hard to shake!

I think you are talking about the Chase "Choices" program which is pretty old. I still use this all the time (buy the ticket and then request a statement credit at $0.01/mile). I know some people...
