Amex - NY Fashion Week

Call me a purist. Call me a snob. I'll plead guilty to both.

American Express sent the below information to its Starwood card holders. It's so sad to think of all the effort we went through trying to scam seats to shows while in college, design school or just playing poser. For just $250 you can now preview all the fashion week shows without even changing out of your Banana Republic chinos. The all the information you need is below. Just don't be surprised if you hear chuckles as you turn your back.

That can't be right. I just got the email this morning.

I have a Amex Plat, and I got notifications of their package maybe a month ago? It was $750 for the whole hair/make-up and a whole day of shows. Same deal as in Sept (you don't know the line-up when you book). With so many cancellations though, why risk it?

I just called. The rep was asking me "which package specifically" and "you should have received an invite to be eligible" Also noticed it says "Starwood cards.

The way the economy is going, they better do all they can to get clients excited to purchase in this environment.
