Yesterday I was talking with Randy Petersen and he mentioned that there are fewer than 500 Milepoint Premium membership packages left.
The limitation is based on what the frequent flyer community has been able to secure from its partners, a limited number of free or deeply discounted benefits.
Milepoint premium was rolled out on a test basis, I blogged it and it turned out to be hugely popular. It was brought back, sold out, and then more packages were made available.
But I’m told that the $59 annual package which includes United miles, Hyatt status (or Hyatt points for those who already have Hyatt status), and National Car Rental status is only going to be available as long as these few remaining packages last. There won’t be anything quite like it in 2012, though we certainly hope to have attractive offers for frequent flyers in the future.
The current offer is $59, which covers a year of premium membershipship and includes one year of ad-free viewing on Milepoint.com and:
Points and elite status:
- 2,000 United MileagePlus miles
- Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum status through Feb. 2014 or 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points if you are already a Hyatt elite member
- Upgrade to National Car Rental Emerald Club Executive Status
