Magazines for Miles by Northwest WorldPerks

Contributed by mm | December 8, 2007 4:52 AM PST

magformiles.jpgBesides banking and investment accounts, I also use Microsoft Money to track various mileage programs. For Northwest Airlines' frequent flier program WorldPerks alone, I track five different accounts: mine, my wife's, my kid's, and both of my parents'.

The problem is: since my parents didn't travel much lately, their miles are about to expire at the end of the year. Each of them have about 10,000 miles, much less than the cheapest reward ticket, but enough to feel bad about losing them.

Luckily, the WorldPerks program provides a way out: Magazine for Miles. In exchange for a few hundred miles, you can get 6-month or 1-year subscription to a lot of magazines and newspaper.

Here are a shortlisted version for personal finance and business-related publications:


Magazine for Miles offers a total of over 40 magazines in different categories, including Time, Newsweek, TV Guide, Sports Illustrated, Elle, GQ, Scientific American and Teen Vogue.

Better, you can use it to send a gift subscription your friends or family members with an U.S. mailing address.

So here is what I did: I logged onto both accounts to issue gift orders for my U.S. mailbox address. Since magazines will automatically convert repeated orders to renewal orders, I ended up with subscriptions to Money, SmartMoney, Fortune, Forbes and Portfolio to 2010.

Isn't it good to salvage the miles and convert them to something useful?

thanks for the suggestions. Saves considerable amount if buying multiple subscriptions as gifts.

Rahul Commented on December 8, 2007


Whats the site where you can redeem these miles for magazines?


Tom Commented on December 9, 2007

Great suggestion. My dad is about to have his miles expired and he didn't have enough for a ticket. I'll pass this suggestion off to him.

Adam Commented on December 10, 2007

Thanks for the heads up!

Just as an FYI, other frequent flyer programs may offer the same deals.

My Delta (Skymiles) and American (AAdvantage) have similar programs. The miles-to-magazine amounts are equal for the same titles.

All these programs seem to run thru
