Priority Award Alerts & Fare Deals

Premium members will receive business and first class Award Alerts and fare deals at least 72 hours before Economy members.

In addition to providing the exact dates you can book award tickets, we will provide insights into the best ways to book so you can make the best decision based on the miles and points you have. We’ll even provide you with precise booking instructions so you don’t have to stumble through the process.

Increased frequency of Award Alerts & Fare Deals

While Premium members will get a head start on Economy members, only Premium members will receive every single Alert and fare deal. Some deals simply won’t last very long – like $410 round-trip business class tickets to Brazil. Only Premium members will get these opportunities.

Priority Search Criteria

Premium members will be provided with a survey to complete upon joining. This survey will provide us with important information regarding preferred departure airports in North America, destinations, airlines, priority programs for earning points and miles, and more. This info will inform our efforts to find award space and fare deals most useful to you.

Text Message Alerts

One of the most requested features since Straight To The Points launched has been a text alert system. To ensure you don’t miss an Award Alert or fare deal because you haven’t seen inbox zero in years, we provide the option to get notified via text message (standard messaging rates may apply).

Discounted Award Booking Service

If there is a specific trip that you need (or want) to book but don’t have the time or energy to dedicate to finding award space on the exact dates you need, leave it to us. As a Premium member you’ll get a 20% discount on our award booking service.

Monthly Happy Hour + Q&A with Industry Experts

As a Premium member, you’ll have access to monthly video happy hours. At each happy hour, an industry expert will join to talk about their experience with points and travel as well as answer your questions.

Unlimited Luxury Hotel Bookings

As an affiliate of a travel advisor, we can provide access to a variety of luxury booking platforms including Hyatt Privé, Virtuoso, Hilton Impresario, Marriott STARS, and more. We will book these special cash rates for Premium members at no extra cost.

Premium Member Success Story Features

If you book an amazing trip thanks to an Award Alert or fare deal we send, we will happily share your success by featuring you on the website. We’ll even feature some success stories on an Instagram Live episode. Maybe then your friends will start to understand how you did it!
