What is the best tool for tracking points and miles?

How do you keep track of all of your points and miles?  For the past few years I’ve happily used AwardWallet, which is available both as a web site and a smartphone app.  But is it the best option available?

I recently stumbled upon this old Frommer’s article: 5 Best Websites for Tracking Loyalty Programs.  The author, Dennis Schaal, lists Traxo, AwardWallet, UsingMiles, PointHub, and TripIt (pro version) as the 5 best options, but doesn’t say which of those he likes best.

Reader input requested

I’ve been recommending AwardWallet all along without really knowing if it is better than other options.  Do you use any of those tools or any others?  What do you like or dislike about them? 

Disclosure 1

I was approached quite a while ago by UsingMiles who asked me to promote their service on my blog.  That’s not something I would do unless it was a service that I used myself and really believed in.  So far, though, I haven’t spent much time with the service so I can’t really recommend it one way or another.  Anyway, no compensation was offered, but they did give me a link that would give my readers free lifetime Premier membership.  That sounds pretty good.  If you’re interested, use this link to sign up:

Disclosure 2

AwardWallet offered to run Frequent Miler ads on their site if I would write about their service.  In this case, I do use AwardWallet (and really like it!) so it seemed like a good deal.  That was months ago, and I’m just now getting around to writing something.  Does this post count?  It might count if this post generates many new signups.  Towards that end, if you haven’t already signed up for AwardWallet, please consider doing so with my link:

I won’t get any direct compensation, but if they get many new signups they might run Frequent Miler ads more often (which would be cool!). 

Also, try applying this coupon to upgrade to AwardWallet Pro for free for 6 months:

If that coupon doesn’t work, check the comments section of this post.  I’ll list additional codes, if possible, or I’ll announce when they’ve run out.

  2. to keep the conversation Elise related to reviews I’ve personally stuck with award wallet for the past year and without the Plus features I would say it’s almost useless but I opted for the 10 dollar upgrade with the card Kingting of all of my programs. so AwardWallet plus Or bust for me.

    and if anyone still needs I have 5 Free upgrades left.
