3 Quick Things: Amex, Sheraton and Air Berlin

– Have a lot of business in South Sudan? Enjoy collecting Starwood points? Good news – Sheraton is opening a new hotel in Juba, South Sudan, in 2015. A new property in Guinea also opens in 2015 and in Mauritania in 2017. Looking forward to trip reports.

– I just received an email from Amex offering $5 off $30 worth of gasoline at Exxon/Mobil stations through December 31st (1-time use). Register any of your Amex cards, though I used my Amex Blue Cash Preferred since it earns 3% on gas already.

– Air Berlin is adding service beginning in May: Chicago – Berlin goes to daily from 5x per week. JFK-Berlin and JFK-Dusseldorf go to 10x/week from daily. That’ll give a few more options to go to Europe using Avios points without fuel surcharges.
