    I've used FlyerTalks coupon connection a few times over the years and found it useful. Anything like that planned, or did I miss it in looking over the extant threads?

    I'd love to see this concept expanded much more beyond just a forum, but an actual marketplace, like "points.com" but 100x better (as in, not a rip off to use).

    MP could charge some nominal fee per transaction and act as the broker between parties.

    Obviously this would take a lot of effort to implement (not to mention some level of coordination between programs), but it would be amazing to have it happen

    UPDATE: We have a meeting today to discuss some of the final small details we hope to achieve with this initiative. As we have previously noted, our goal all along was to put into place a simple and easy way for members to exchange the favors of membership.

    we're actually ready for launch pending some feedback from a number of members that the co-founders: gleff, tommy777 and pizzaman received. As soon as we feel that feedback was acknowledged for value, we'll get this out to you.

    Thanks skit for following up on this- I am sure the MP group is very busy, however this is something I am looking forward to see as well when time permits.

    Apparently, although frankly I don't see it. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I though that there would be more of a public, concerted effort to launch/promote/grow this IBB. Just my opinion, guys, no need to explain yourselves.

    Randy et al, It's been 8 months since this question was first posed and we would certainly like to know if there are any updates on this. What progress has been made so far? How can we help?

    There certainly has been progress, in fact the program has been in place for two months now and appears to be working just fine. I've heard nothing but compliments for how it works, the unique structure of the program and that it seems to work for such a young community for the frequent flyer. A program like this is best when it just works. Suffice it to say that those who show a consistent and helpful manner in assisting milepoint to be of great value to others may be able to eventually count this as a personal benefit of themselves.

    That's wonderful news! Randy, can you be a little more explicit as to what are the criteria by which we qualify into this program?

    Thanks!
