For those of you who are on the fence about getting MilePoint Premium here are some great blog posts as to its benefits and value.
The Points Guy states that he personally feels that he would reap his $59 membership fee and more and he likes to support others in the frequent flyer community and a portion goes to charity.
U Can Fly Free 2 is definitely going for the premium membership and values the Hyatt platinum membership the most.
The Hustle Blog already bought his and says to hurry as there is minimum number of memberships available.
To reiterate the benefits, here they are:
2,000 United MileagePlus miles
Gold Passport Platinum status through Feb. 2014 or 2,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Free 1-year subscription to InsideFlyer.com
One year of ad-free viewing on Milepoint.com
One Free Gogo Inflight Internet 24-hour pass
Free upgrade to UsingMiles Premier Membership
Free 3-month trial of Clear Free upgrade to AwardWallet Plus account and a free AwardWallet OneCard
Free upgrade to National Car Rental Emerald Club Executive Status
20% discount on ExpertFlyer.com
20% discount on BookYourAward.com (one of the best award booking services out there)

I've got mine and I've already received my cost back in my opinion.
