Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I sell my points or miles?
There are many reasons why selling your points or miles is the best option. You collect points from your day to day credit card purchases or frequent flyer miles when you fly but never find availability to redeem them when you want. You don’t have the time to fly or you prefer cash-in-hand for some other more important purpose.
2. Why should I buy frequent flyer miles from you?
We constantly strive to provide the best price compared to other mileage brokers. As you may know, you can often redeem your frequent flyer miles for a free ticket. However, many people only have so much miles and often don't have enough to redeem that first or business class seat. Buying that remaining airline miles that you need from us will allow you to travel in First and Business class on major airlines for half the price when buying directly with an airline on a full price.
3. How do I trade my points or miles?
It’s simple. Request a free quote and will do the rest of the work to get the cash or miles in your account. Which ever way you prefer.
4. How long will it take before my points or miles are sold?
Our goal is to connect your points/miles with someone who needs them right away. Since there are sometimes more sellers looking to cash out than buyers, we typically put your name on our inventory list and we will contact you as soon as your name gets to the top of that list. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 30 days.
5. How much will I get paid?
It varies widely on the type of miles or point you’re selling. The average seller receives between 1 - 1.7 cents per mile or point. This means between $1,000 to $1,700 per 100,000 miles or points. Request a free quote with us to get a specific offer price.
