    Milepoint, it is not clear how miles created by our frequent flying affect our mileage on milepoint. Can someone throw more light on this. ayummedico.

    FF miles have nothing to do with miles flown, many on here gain them by CC charges, or MS,

    Many have BIS miles, or both.

    Never been ask how many miles I have,

    MP does have active, silver and gold, members but even that is not a measure of time spent acquiring miles, or knowledge.

    MP will give you some ideas, and comments others have had.,,saves a lot of time....Good place to meet,

    Good FTU in SEA. Starting 4/25, Share the Love

    Hope this sheds some light and helps you find your way...

    Depends on what you want your miles/points for. Elite status is something to strive for as airlines, hotels, etc treat you better the higher up you are. Credit card miles do not normally count for elite status with the airlines., and the airlines are day in day out trying to make it harder for those of us that fly a lot.

    Welcome to Milepoint -- if you spend a little time lurking (i.e. reading messages others have posted) you should be able to figure out what this forum is all about.

    We prefer to reward activity and quality of posts here :)

    As you post more and gain more likes from other members here your status change to Silver and Gold. There is no tie to frequent flyer miles.

    Let us know if we can help further!

    Welcome

    No miles earned on Milepoint, but certainly there is information to be gained from your fellow posters and a supportive community for the travel enthusiast.

    As for gaining status, here are some of the benefits - http://milepoint.com/forums/help/trophies from Silver and Gold status. Once in a while there are also contests and other fun events, as well as opportunities like Premium Membership, which provide elite level memberships to travel programs, discounts to travel programs or miles. They are limited programs, so keep a look out for the next offer.

    What's the threshold to go from Silver to Gold?
