I think my goal is AA Lifetime Gold...I live in Dallas...AA flies everywhere. I have my own company and spend about $20K/month. Can I get the Starwood AMEX and then transfer the miles to AA? I would get 1.25 miles on the transfer...I only need 750K more to hit the 1mil mile mark? Can this be done? Not to mention when you convert AA miles to first-class and over seas flights the bang for the buck is huge.
