    Is it posted somewhere? I am dying to know, since I LOVE the T Shirt I got for silver. I constantly tell me wife how much I like it...I mean, its just so SOFT! Anyway...that set the bar high and I am constantly wondering what Gold brings....is it mentioned anywhere or is it top secret agent orange double secret probation clearance only?

    Ah, so I can look forward to spilling all over my T-shirt, washing it multiple times for even greater softness. ;)

    Randy Peterson meets you on your next flight and gives you a model plane with milepoint livery...where do you think they got the idea for up in the air (RP=Clooney) ;)

    That may be a lie...this is not

    You mean you guys did not get your 24K gold Milepoint luggage tags? ;)

    I believe it opens access to some other forums, like a Coupon trading site.

    Didn't know about the Starbucks GC, but I do like my new Kiva polo shirt! (which is not part of the Gold package)

    OK, someone owes me 2 minutes of my life that I will never get back! :eek:

    I did like the caption above the video -
    WELCOME to world wide famous Sokoblovsky Farms.
    The best and only breeders of Petite Lap Giraffes.



    They have the market covered!!! :D

    Did you see the link to the DirecTV commercials their giraffes starred in? If you still feel you're owed 2 minutes, I'll see what I can do.

    Well, we were discussing a milepoint/megado plane if Qantas was going out of business.

    How does one reach Gold anyhow?

    $20 Starbucks gift card
    Go to the "More" tab above on the top bar to see what offers you have (like a Marriott account :D) .... as for reaching Gold, that's a top secret ... but I will give you a hint, you already have enough seniority (member since Feb 4th) on MP to reach Gold ... all you need more posts & more "likes" ;)

    Still a long way to go for me, unfortunately :) maybe the reward will have already changed when I hit Gold :)

    I thought it was 1000 points? Or maybe the threshold has changed?

    True to form, I am a cheap elite as I received Gold status with 1000 pts. :D

    under the "more" tab, look for the "award store".

    Whew. 1000 might be reachable for me. But 2000 would be a looooooong ways off.

    congrats!
    Very appropriate since Gold is one of Purdue's colors.

    I just gave you some likes to help you on your quest for gold. Now, you need to post more. :)

    Points are awarded at 40 minutes after the hour, so it is likely that Stimpy will get a chunk in eight minutes. (I'm not sure if either 150 posts or 150 likes, or both, still get points, but we'll see soon).

    edit to add: I guess those aren't thresholds. But the bottom line, at first, just like with airline and hotel programs, points and status look very far off; but with a little participation and attention the balances start to steadily grow, and then they take off.
