How to keep track of award miles and points?
Keeping track of your miles and points balances can be difficult. Especially if, like me, you are a member of more than 20 different airline, hotel, bank and retail programs. One way to keep track of your mileage balance is to create a spreadsheet and manually visit the various program web pages on a regular basis to update the sheet. As this process is necessarily time consuming and fairly effort intensive, there is a much easier way of keeping track of your mileage balance. A few years ago, I stumbled across an app called AwardWallet which allows you to enter your login/membership details for the individual reward programs. AwardWallet will then automatically check your balance and display an overview on the app interface. If you want to try out AwardWallet, you can sign-up to the free version here or you can visit your Android or Apple app store and download the app. The free version allows you to track your mileage balance for redeemable miles, whilst the paid version also tracks expiry date and other key data.
