American Express Giveth, Then Taketh Away. Check Your Reward Point Balance!

Reminder that voting closes tomorrow in my favorite picture airline ticket giveaway.

I’ve had a Starwood Preferred Amex for a long time.  It’s one of my favorite award cards because Starpoints transfer to airlines very easily and Starwood also has a host of great international properties that we’ve enjoyed.

Reward Point

I received a letter this month from American Express.  It seems that they credited my SPG account twice this month with the points I earned.  Sure enough, when I logged into my SPG account there was a second entry about 2 weeks after the first one.  I’ve had a ton of work and personal travel lately, so I’m behind keeping updated on all my balances.

The letter states they won’t post any more points to my account until I’ve earned the double entry.  No harm, really, unless you don’t notice it and expect more points next month for an immediate redemption.  But, a good reminder to check your balances frequently.  Award Wallet is a great tool to manage a number of different loyalty accounts.  If you get their premium version, which can be had for (iirc) $10 a year, you can track multiple people’s accounts and get e-mail updates on a weekly basis of all your balances.
