Twenty percent of reward miles and points are never used, according to AwardWallet, a rewards tracking website. It’s easy for rewards points and miles to slip through the cracks depending on your organizational skills and time.
American Airlines recently partnered up with AwardWallet to offer AAdvantage members an effective way to track their miles – either through the website or by using a newly launched app.
AwardWallet was launched in 2004 to help members track their rewards in a wide range of reward programs including frequent flyer miles and points earned through hotel loyalty programs, credit cards or rental car companies. They currently have 167,000 members keeping track of more than 33 billion miles and points in over 600 loyalty programs, which now includes American Airlines AAdvantage.
Current AAdvantage members who are already signed up for AwardsWallet can use the site to track their AA miles now too. Those who haven’t joined can register and begin tracking their rewards.
Mobile consumers may want to use their smartphone to track their points. AwardsWallet also has an app that can be downloaded to an iPhone or Android-powered phone making where and when you track your points and miles more convenient.
Not just about tracking
A surefire way to waste points and miles is to never use them or by let them expire. Knowing what you have and for how long they are good for can really pay off. An intuitive interface on the site and in the mobile app helps members keep points and miles organized, as well as letting you know when you’re in danger of losing them.
Security, security, security
Whether using your credit card online to buy something or using technology to track rewards and points, security is often a big concern for consumers due to identity theft and fraud. American Airlines allayed this concern by working with AwardWallet to fine tune their security before signing the pact. For more information, go to awardwallet.com.
