One of the things I appreciate about you guys is that you set me straight when I have crazy ideas. Yes, maybe in retrospect moving to the Lufthansa First Class Terminal wasn’t the brightest idea ever, though that’s why I run these ideas past you guys before “executing.”
I have another idea, but this time I’m fairly certain it’s genius, though I’ll run it past you guys anyway. I’ve decided to move to Tianjin, China. I know what you’re thinking: what a brilliant idea, go for it! Why Tianjin, you ask?
Well, the St. Regis Tianjin just opened a few months ago, and the rates are rather good, about ~$140USD/night.
My plan is to move there and live on the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts rate, which includes complimentary daily breakfast, guaranteed 4PM check-out, a room upgrade, and a $100 food and beverage credit per stay. Add that to my Starwood Platinum benefits, and I’ll be living the high life for pennies on the dollar.
The only downside is that the food and beverage credit is per stay as opposed to per night, so I guess I’ll have to stay at the Westin every other night. Or maybe I need to move there with a friend and we need to have alternating reservations every other night.
Anyone else want to move to Tianjin with me?
You’ve gotta love the value American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts can provide…
