It occurred to me today I’ve never blogged about this, though I guess it’s better late than never.
Milepoint offers a Premium Membership for $59, which comes with many benefits including 2,000 United MileagePlus miles, 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points (or Hyatt Platinum status), 20% off ExpertFlyer, a free GoGo pass, free Executive Status with National Emerald Club, and more (click the link above to see a full list of benefits).
I value United miles at 1.8 cents each and value Hyatt points at 1.6 cents each. So those two things alone are worth $68 to me, more than the cost of membership. I also use ExpertFlyer and will save $20 next year on my membership thanks to the offer. Then you get a ton of other benefits that are icing on the cake.
Anyway, I know supplies are limited (apparently they actually are, not like in an infomercial), so if you have any sort of a United or Hyatt points balance I’d highly recommend taking advantage of this.
