Good news for all of the loyal subscribers to the Million Mile Secrets newsletter — we’re changing things up!
You may have noticed that this past week you didn’t get a daily email. This wasn’t an accident. For the rest of this year (and longer if it goes well) we’ll be sending out less frequent, but more helpful emails. Starting today, you’ll be getting a curated email from us every Wednesday and Saturday, although that may change. (Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to find daily story updates on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.)
We want to make the newsletter more interesting and helpful for you, so we’d like to include your questions and feedback in our revamped product. (Read on for details.)

Million Mile Secrets newsletter changes
In the past, the newsletter has been an automated daily round-up of the posts we had published or updated that day. Because of the once-a-day timing, some deals would already be expired by the time the newsletter went out.
We’re fixing that. In addition to the semi-weekly newsletter, we now will also occasionally email you separately about deal alerts, last-chance reminders for limited-time offers or very important time-sensitive news.
For example, a couple of weeks ago American Airlines had 10,000-mile round-trip award flights available to New Zealand and Australia for just a few hours. Under the new system, that’s the kind of thing we’ll notify you about quickly. Or, if we happen to know in advance when the limited-time 200,000-mile/$2,000 cash back Capital One Spark offers are ending, we’ll give you a shout out so you can plan accordingly.
Now that we are switching to an email curated by an actual human, we’ll also be able to include lots of fun new stuff, from our favorite miles and points deals to anything that inspires us, from travel tips to our favorite destinations.
We also want to make our semi-weekly email a place for you to ask questions and get answers, so we’re asking you to reply to the email (or comment on this post) with any questions you have. If it’s something you need an answer to, then chances are that someone else does as well. We will include the most helpful questions and answers in future emails.
Just keep in mind we aren’t an award booking service. So we won’t have time to help you find and book awards to Christmas Island during the crab migration, but we can point you to helpful award booking guides or otherwise get you on the right track to be able to do the research yourself.Featured image by Rawpixel.com/Shutterstock.
