You can also log into your miles and points account just by clicking on the link in Award Wallet, without having to enter the username and password yourself!
New users get six months of FREE AwardWallet Plus when you use coupon code “MillionMileSecrets” for signing-up.
But some airlines like Delta, United and Southwest don’t let Award Wallet track your miles for you. But there are workarounds and you can still click on the link in AwardWallet to log into your airline accounts.
American Airlines has announced that you can now use AwardWallet to track your American Airlines miles.
American Airlines & AwardWallet
Originally, American Airlines allowed you to track your mileage balance with AwardWallet. Then in 2011, American made it harder to use for tracking your account with AwardWallet, before no longer allowing AwardWallet users to access American Airlines accounts over security and payment issues.
As much as I like being able to track my miles and points in AwardWallet, I also understand why airlines would want to charge AwardWallet for access to their data and why airlines may want to implement specific requirements before allowing other companies (like AwardWallet) to access their data.
That said, I don’t see Southwest letting any third-party services track their members’ points. Heck, Southwest doesn’t even make their fares available on other travel websites. I’d guess that United could be the next big airline which will have an agreement to allow AwardWallet to track miles.
How to Add American to Your AwardWallet Account
Use this link to add your American Airlines account to your AwardWallet account.
Enter your American Airlines login (i.e your Frequent Flier number) and Password, then click “Add.”
Your American Airlines account will show up in your balances.
I can’t tell you if it is safe to store your information on Award Wallet or not. You’ve got to decide for yourself.
Personally, I’m happy to sign-up for as many services as I can online, and don’t really worry about my accounts getting hacked in exchange for the convenience.
But do what you’re comfortable with!
You can store your password locally on your computer or with Award Wallet. If you do store your passwords with Award Wallet, you can access your account information from any computer through the Award Wallet website.
If you store your password locally, you can only access your information from that particular computer.
Award Wallet allows now also lets you track all your American miles.
AwardWallet also has a smartphone app so that you can easily refer to your miles and points account numbers when you’re traveling.
