Tracking frequent flyer miles for different airlines can be a complicated task. But the good news is that there are online resources to help travelers get the most out of their miles.
One of the tried-and-true mileage tracking services is MilePort.com.
It’s a user-friendly site that tracks loyalty programs for multiple people and accounts, and users can sign up for regular summaries of their accounts.
However, one of the biggest concerns when travelers join multiple airline loyalty programs is that miles can expire after a certain period of inactivity.
The mile tracking Web site AwardWallet.com, not only organizes the information from several programs, but also sends alerts if the account is about to expire.
The site also offers trip planning options including reservations for cars, hotels, or airlines.
The service is free, and you get more perks with a paid membership.
But get this—you decide how much you want to pay.
Another useful site called MileageManager.com also monitors miles and expiration dates, but the downside is the free service only tracks for one person at a time—meaning you can’t also track for your spouse or other family members.
But the big bonus with this site is that it helps travelers search for award seats, which is often what we’re collecting those miles for in the first place!
