Hi she1,

Uhh... points tracked by the various airlines (United, American, Northwest, etc) such that you can redeem them for free flights based on a schedule they offer.
Northwest Airlines partners with tons of other businesses such that any business (Joe's sign company, Jack's printing, etc.) can offer NWA miles with their services.
Was your question more specific?

Hope this helps.
