News, Tips & Tricks

Milepoint.com, the second largest frequent flyer
community forum is once again offering limited premium memberships with

MileagePlus miles + more) for only $49.95. Full details here

Of course, if you missed it yesterday be sure to check out our latest feature:
Rewards Canada’s Guide to Business Class Lounge Access

In the bonus offer section, two offers of note:

The first is from Melia International’s Mas Rewards
program. It is a buy points offer and while there so-so value in
buying the points for actual Melia stays there can be great value in
buying them for transfers to two airlines. Mas Rewards only began
selling points late in 2012 and we broke the news that you could use
them for getting business class flights on Air Berlin for cheaper than
buying them outright (see our posts here and here)
and then Jeff over Boarding Area discovered another great redemption,
transferring to Miles and More for first/business class redemption
within the U.S. or Canada. You can read his take on this here.
The only word of warning seems to come in the comments on his piece
that some people’s miles that were transferred to Miles and More have
disappeared from their accounts.
