LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an email he had received after voting for Freddie Awards earlier in the year that was offering a MilePoint Premium-membership for $49.95. The reader wanted to get my opinion about this product.

As a matter of fact, I already covered this product on my piece that I wrote about it on October 11, 2013 (you can access it here). [click to continue...]

Milepoint is having a membership drive again and is offering certain premiums included in the $49.95 membership price.

Milepoint is basically a failing FlyerTalk clone that was started by the founder of Flyertalk after he sold the website to Internet Brands and the non-competing period run out. He thought that he could basically move the traffic away from FlyerTalk to Milepoint and likely ca$h out again. Doesn’t seem to be happening. [click to continue...]

Yesterday, I received  email spam from MilePoint about an ability to “invest” to Wall&Main and to essentially buy United MileagePlus miles at around 3 cents each. You could purchase a $30K package and get 1 million miles & Platinum Premier status. Wall&Main would also throw in Bose Quiet Comfort headphones.

Note that you would not own any equity of this Wall&Main, but would essentially just get the miles and the United status and that’s about it. [click to continue...]

Milepoint is apparently having a premium membership drive and offering a nice package just for $59.

Here is a list of benefits & discounts that you will receive for $59.

Let’s say that if you value your Hyatt and United points at 1.5 cents each then the value of these two is greater than the price of $59 that Milepoint charges for their Premium membership. I have circled in red the benefits & discounts that I have found to be useful.

Conclusion

This is a very good offer that I will take advantage of as well. Buying 2000 Hyatt Gold Passport points and United Mileage Plus miles for just $59 is a very good deal.

Milepoint is a Flyertalk clone that was (surprisingly) founded by the founder of FlyerTalk (after selling the latter to Internet Brands).  For frequent traveler related information I have found the FlyerTalk to be far more useful than the Milepoint.
