… Any why you should read it regularly
MilePro is not the first travel blog focused on frequent flyer miles, points, etc… The truth is, there are quite a few of them out there, many of which are very interesting and informative. But they tend to be somewhat single threaded, focusing primarily on the leisure traveler and travel credit card offers.
Milepro is written with a wider audience in mind including leisure travelers, business travelers, family vacationers and frequent flyer mile & point junkies.
Our goal is to make MilePro your “go to” resource for expert travel advice, travel deals, loyalty promotions and reviews. Our content will be based on personal experience and centered around the following topics:
- Travel Tips – A lot of “How-to’s” regarding saving on travel, earning more miles, getting elite status, etc…
- Travel Deals & Coupons – Deals for saving on business and leisure trips when you actually have to pay for them
- Promotions – We aggregate the loyalty promotions from hotels and airlines so you can find them all in one, easy to find, place
- Travel Credit Cards – Reviews of the best travel credit cards and tips for exploiting them into a lot of Free Travel!
- Trip Reviews – Honest reviews of hotels, destinations and experiences
- News and Blog – General travel news and information that we think you will find interesting
Travel, whether is is domestic or international, provides the “life experiences” that you just can’t get when staying within a 100 mile radius of your home, no matter where you live. But the reality is, it can be brutally expensive and cost prohibitive for most people, if you don’t know how to work the system of miles, points and deals. That’s where we come in…..
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Through the content provided in MilePro we will teach you to fish, or is this case teach you the tips and methods for getting more miles and points that will allow you (and your family) to travel more, experience more and therefore live a more fulfilled life.
A Little History about MilePro.com
We would be remiss if we did not give a nod to the origins of MilePro.com, since we are not the first to sit on this domain.
While we have no relation to our Milepro.com predecessors, it was originally one of the first frequent flyer “mileage managers” on the market. Developed by a company called Retrieve-It, Milepro was a downloadable desktop tool for monitoring all of your frequent flyer and hotel point balances in one place. Today, there are similar, cloud based solutions, like Award Wallet, but MilePro was one of the first and a true visionary in the field. The downloadable product was born in late 2001 and died in mid 2004.
While we are doing it in a slightly different way, we are proud to carry on the tradition of managing and growing your miles that the original MilePro established in 2001.
