    I hope that neither the founder nor administrators of milepoint.com suspend my posting privileges for blatantly advertising a tool for frequent fliers that has been useful to me in the past, but perhaps this tool should have its own forum in ConcourseZ.

    I have been a subscriber to the MilesLink newsletter for at least 15 years — yes, even before the current iteration of FlyerTalk.

    In 1996, for example, this e-mail newsletter helped me turn 30,000 United Mileage Plus miles that were about to expire — no, at that time, there was no way to extend the expiration date of the expiring miles — and convert them into 120,000 Hilton HHonors points. To my knowledge, there has never been a similar conversion deal since.

    However, for some reason, I was dropped from the MilesLink mailing list. The last issue I received was on September 2, 2009, which was volume 12, issue 18. I did not know if it still existed, but it does. Although I know I can always read the back issues on-line, I have since subscribed again.

    For those of you who would like to subscribe as well, please click here.

    Endorsed by Canarsie. I'll give it a try. My inbox is already cluttered... another newsletter can't hurt.

    I'd be shocked it the founders of this site had a problem with you publicizing the newsletter as they are the ones who send it out. ;)

    I was wondering when someone would catch onto that...

    I first thought it was mile slink, a support group for people ashamed of being mileage runners and points counters, but once I caught on I signed up and have enjoyed it for quite some time. [​IMG]

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for pointing it out. Same problem here, I got dropped after the September 2009 issue.

    Cheers,
