Are you posting at MilePoint? Or are you still a FlyerTalker? In order to incentivize people to post at MilePoint, Randy Petersen has created a “store” where you can earn free things, in exchange for being an original member or becoming a silver member. The two things I’ve qualifed for are the t-shirt and the luggage tags. Let’s take a look…
Woot! Free shipping too!
I think the shirt is really nice. It’s a nice color, and it’s not obnoxious. I’ll definitely sport this shirt from time to time when I’m traveling!
As much as I like the shirt, I was disappointed with the luggage tags! My Tumi luggage tag got ripped. I then replaced it with a United luggage tag. It broke in transit. I needed a new one, and I was excited to use the MilePoint tags. I thought they would have a slot for a business card, but they are just giant tags that say “more miles” or something similar on them. I think they’re a bit obnoxious. My suitcase doesn’t need any gratuitous pieces of flair on it.
All in all, free is free! I’ll take it. I wish the luggage tags were a bit more useful though. Anyhow, if you haven’t started posting on Milepoint, it’s a good alternative to Flyertalk, and the forum software there is somewhat better.
