One the problems we have as frequent travelers is keeping up with all of our points and miles in various programs. It is difficult to remember all of the loyalty account numbers, sign in user names, and passwords. The worst part is if you are not up to date on your accounts you could have miles expire before you even get a chance to use them.
This year I finally setup a way to centrally manage and track my hotel, airline, and other loyalty account balances. I no longer have to worry about remembering all of those account numbers and I was able to get rid of a bunch of loyalty cards that were weighing me down on the road.
I set up an Award Wallet account to track my points and miles bankroll. I like it so much I had to write a quick post to share how easy it is to set up the account and start tracking your bankroll.
I can now easily track my award balances online across all programs and AwardWallet will even notify me when balances are expiring across each program. One of their features, OneCard, will help reduce program cards, by documenting your account numbers and the associated program phone number on one small credit card sized card.
AwardWallet Points and Miles Tracking Account
The award wallet account allows you to track your points and miles across a number of programs. I can track Delta SkyMiles or an obscure program like the Starbucks card rewards program. Regardless of what your favorite program is, it will likely be there. There is one program which comes to mind that requires a work around, that program is American Airlines. Their program requires a browser plug in to track miles, but the process to get this plug in to work is easily provided by Award Wallet.
They really make it easy to track your account balances.
The part that will give you the most joy is when you log in each week and see your balances going up and the expiration dates getting pushed out.
AwardWallet One Card
The AwardWallet OneCard is a normal loyalty / credit card sized plastic card. Card features include:
- Personal account numbers and program phone numbers printed on the front and back sides
- Can hold up to 30 different loyalty program accounts listed
- Comes in gold and silver
- Gold is for those who have over 1,000,000 miles and points
- Silver is for those with fewer than 1 million miles and points will get a silver card
- The cards will be shipped internationally as well as within United States via regular USPS service
The award wallet team has helped me centralize points and miles tracking. In addition, I no longer have to carry all of those cards in my bag because of the OneCard.
