2 Red Carpet Club Passes and Starwood Gold for $10

Ameniti, United’s “Luxury Travel Club” (which is useless in almost every regard) is offering a 3-month trial membership for $10.

It comes with 2 United Red Carpet Club passes and Starwood Gold status, my best guess being through February 2007.

If you allow your membership to renew after 3 months for a $295 annual fee you’ll receive 25,000 United miles. Otherwise, just cancel before 3 months are up.

  1. When I last did this, I got the red carpet passes, and also got charged $300 a month for 3 months, until I cancelled the card.

    I’d cancelled my Amenity membership in writing to the fax # on their site.

  2. Ameniti had a database problem in the fall, and they did charge several people that cancelled. A single phone call reversed the charges within about 48 hours.

  3. Ameniti seems useless on domestic flights, since the 241 requires non-discounted fares. It seems better on int’l, where they cover United, Lufthansa code-shares, bmi, and a good bit of Singapore Airlines route network. However, isn’t this also a pretty good value for purchasing 25,000 miles for $305 (1.2 cents per mile) versus buying them at for $697 (2.8 cents per mile).
