Can you help me help you (or help you help me)?

No need to read this post. You can stop here. OK, you were warned.

Anyway, I posted a while back about the Mileage Plus refer-a-friend Visa promotion, whereby the person applying for a Mileage Plus Visa gets 30,000 bonus miles and the person referring gets 15,000 bonus miles (up to two times). While the Mileage Plus Visa isn’t my primary┬ácredit card, it is my preferred Visa and the sign-up bonus is great. As far as I know the card never has the $60 annual fee waived in conjunction with the 30,000 mile sign-up bonus, though. Anyone out there interested in getting a Mileage Plus Visa? You could help me by letting me refer you, and I’ll help you by paying your annual fee for you for the first year. Besides, the more miles I earn the more trips I can take, and the more trips I take, the more trip reports I can write. See, we all win in the end…. ­čśÇ

Anyway, if there’s anyone out there that’s interested,┬áplease email me at As always, if anyone out there is interested in signing up for a Starwood American Express (the all around best credit card) and doesn’t plan on spending $15,000 in the first six months, I’d be eternally grateful if I could refer you. Just email me as well, please.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
