    Minnesota-based Sun Country UFly Rewards has transitioned to a revenue-based program.

    Previously, members earned five points per one-way flight in coach (seven points in first class) and roundtrip coach award tickets started at 100 points. Under the new rules, members will earn points based on how much they spend instead of the number of flights flown. Members now earn 10 points per $1 spent on base airfare, excluding taxes and fees. Award tickets start at 6,500 points and members can redeem for roundtrip and one-way flights and upgrades.

    The program has also relaxed the rules around pooling miles. Members used to be prohibited from pooling miles but now up to 10 people can combine their miles to redeem for award tickets. A group of people who would like to pool their miles selects one person to be the pool administrator, who sets up an account and invites up to nine other UFly Rewards members to join the pool. The pool isn't restricted to family members and the administrator can invite friends, co-workers and anyone else they'd like to invite. Each member can contribute all or a percentage of their earned points to the pool and the combined points can be redeemed for an award ticket for any member, but only the pool administrator can request the award ticket. Setting up a pool is free and there are no fees to transfer points.
