Are there different plans of Premium Membership?
Good question. All levels are the same for the base benefits such as ad-free viewing of Milepoint and discounts with certain travel services including our popular Executive status upgrade with National Car Rental. What is different is the bonus offer. We were only able to acquire a very limited number of bonus miles and points and an early offer at $59 featured them but we are sold out of that offer. Currently the only Premium Membership plan available is our $3.99 monthly plan with all the base bonuses listed to the left but no signup bonus of miles and points.
I just heard about the Premium Membership program. Are there any benefits I missed out on earlier?
No. Members regardless of when they upgrade their account are eligible for all the base benefits including those added on later.
I'm no longer able to see the Premium Membership notice, can I still purchase an upgrade?
Yes you can (assuming, that is, supplies are still available. Keep in mind that only our $3.99 monthly benefits plan is currently available). When logged into Milepoint, mouse over your name in the navigation bar, then select "Account Upgrades" - from there you can purchase a Premium Membership account upgrade. As an aside, if you click into "Preferences" you can also restore any active notices you might have been dismissed.
When do the benefits expire?
The benefits included in the Milepoint Premium Membership package can be activated at any time up to 12 months from your date of purchase, except where otherwise stated.
How/when will I receive specific discount code information for each benefit?
Within a few minutes of purchasing an upgrade to Milepoint Premium Membership you will receive a Private Conversation to your Milepoint InBox account containing a complete listing of your benefits and applicable discount codes. Please be aware that in many cases you will be receiving a unique code that cannot be reused.
If I'm already a subscriber to one of the benefit providers, can I still receive the discount?
Our Milepoint Premium Membership partners are outstanding, and each and every one of them have offered these discounts to both new and existing members of their services.
I purchased a Premium Membership upgrade, but my title hasn't changed. Am I a Milepoint Premium Member?
Yes you are. If you hold an elite status on Milepoint (e.g., Silver, Gold, Platinum or Original Member) that status will continue to display as your title. A badge displayed in your popup profile identifies you as a Milepoint Premium member. Click on your own icon to see your new Premium Membership badge.
Is there any way to get the airline bonus miles that i have heard about?
Not at this point. We were able to only acquire a very limited number of miles and points as bonuses. We are however hard at work for a similar offer next year which we hope will feature some sort of bonus miles and points offer. Many are finding the base benefits of discounts to be quite valuable to them and you might consider than plan to get you started.
