 1.   1,000 Free United Miles.   Just Another Points Traveler writes that you can get 1,000 free United miles by registering with Bckstgr and syncing your Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare accounts.

2.   American Express SkyGuide Lounge Pass Restriction.   I wrote earlier that the American Express SkyGuide program was a good cheap way to get airport lounge access.

Well, starting from January 1, 2013, Frequent Flyer University says that you can only get reimbursed for 1 lounge pass per calendar month.  This means that if you have a return trip with the start and end dates in the same month, you will get reimbursed for only 1 lounge pass for the entire trip.

The changes aren’t ideal, but even if you submit a reimbursement for 1 lounge pass (~$50), you still come out ahead after the $19.99 annual fee.  But the SkyGuide program certainly isn’t as valuable as it used to be with these changes.

3.   American Express Membership Rewards 30% Transfer Bonus to British Airways.   The Points Guy explains the American Express Membership Rewards 30% transfer bonus to British Airways which ends on January 14, 2013.

I can’t get bckstgr.com to register anything I try to do on the sight beyond my initial registration and ability to log in. I can’t successfully link any of my social media pages, and I can’t get a message to customer service through–no matter which browser I use.

Does anyone have a current link for either the $19.99 or $29.99 Skyguide promotion? Signed up for both on 12/9 and nothing yet (even after checking on the status site). Thanks.

Was able to do with both my account and my wifes for a total of 2000 Miles!!!

Just signed up for the bkstg and linked to facebook.recieved 600 miles immediatly!!!!

thanks for the skyguide heads up. Would have been burned this jan trip. Skyguide has Not sent an email with this notice of change.

Gonna be many pissed skyguiders who don’t get reimbursements next year.
