Comparing this Years Milepoint Premium to Last Year

Last year, one of the first posts I had written was Yes Get Milepoint Premium! The cost was then $59 and in my opinion, I had gotten my value out of the membership. I liked my extra 2k United miles and got use out of my Platinum Hyatt and Executive status with National. There were other random perks that I really didn’t take advantage of.

Well this year the price is lowered to $49 but you get less United miles (only 1,000) and you get Hilton Gold which is very easily attainable with a Amex or Citi credit card. Here are the other “perks”.

  • One year of ad-free viewing on
  • Free 1-year subscription to or 50% discount for print edition of InsideFlyer magazine
  • Free upgrade to PointsHound Level 2 Status through 2014 and a 1,000 mile or point bonus on first booking
  • Free Upgrade to UsingMiles Premier membership
  • Free Gold membership at WorldMate
  • Free upgrade to National Car Rental Emerald Club Executive Status
  • Free upgrade to AwardWallet Plus account
  • Buy-One-Get-One-Free Trip Pass for Award Nexus
  • One day free parking at The Parking Spot (not valid with DFW valet)
  • 25% discount on “Frequent Flyer Master” e-book
  • 25% discount at LoJack for Laptops
  • 20% discount at SCOTTEVEST
  • 20% discount on yearly premium service 
  • 15% discount to Luggage Forward
  • 10% discount off all Hyatt Hotel Gift Card purchases (up to $5,000 in gift card purchases)
  • 10% discount on KVS Tool

So why am I still interested in Milepoint Premium? Well Gary at View from the Wing stated that the Parking Spot code is not a one time use code and you should be able to use it multiple times. I always park here because they are at both Houston airport locations and I accumulate parking spot points to use for free parking days. Those parking fees do at up!

Plus I am still interested in National Exec status after mine expires in Feb 2014 from the last Milepoint Premium membership I purchased.

Also any memberships purchased in Oct will benefit Breast Cancer awareness in a small way. A nice gesture.
