MileHighSwap � Where You Can Barter Frequent Flyer Miles
new web site aims to provide users with
the ability to barter their frequent flyer miles for products,
services and other miles. Plus you can also list items you'd like to
exchange for an award ticket or specific number of miles.
The developers of the site compare
milehighswap.com to eBay, except people are using frequent-flyer
miles instead of cash for transactions.
Signing up and posting an item to barter is free, but it will cost
$0.99 to contact another user about a possible exchange. If you
sign-up for a subscription, you may contact as many users as you�d
like for one monthly fee.
If your transaction includes a transfer of miles, you or the person
you are trading with are responsible for paying the transfer fees
imposed by the airlines. Or you can agree to split the fees, however
In general, it costs approximately $10 per 1,000 miles, plus a $25
to $30 service fee to transfer miles between accounts.
The web site is similar to
LoyaltyMatch.com (where members can buy or trade award
merchandise with members of other loyalty programs) and
(which allows members to exchange miles and points).
The difference is that MileHighSwap takes the idea one step further,
allowing members to exchange miles or points for anything someone
else wants to �sell.�
