AwardWallet Now Tracks Your American Airlines Miles

Award Wallet

AwardWallet is one of my favorite tools because it helps keep track of your miles and points including airline miles, hotel points, and car rental points.

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.

Security

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.

Bottom Line

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.

  1. @D, who do you think will be the next airline to allow Award Wallet to have complete control? Delta? United? Possibly Southwest?

  2. I wonder if usingmiles.com will follow suit.

  3. I doubt it will ever be Southwest though… it seems to be their top priority to make southwest.com the only source to buy tickets and manage miles

  4. Wow, this was already posted last week. Good morning to you, but at least you are getting some money from referrals when people use your link.

  5. Off this topic but I went into CVS today for VRs and they took my license and wrote down information from it…ever happened to you? First time it has happened to me.

  6. @Sazzy, was it on the back of a receipt or on a white piece of paper attached to a clip board. That happens every time in So Cal.

  7. @Grant @DaveL - I’d guess United would be next and Southwest would never join.

    @marc – I don’t get anything if you use my link (but new users get 6 months free).

  8. How do you feel about adding chase ultimate reward account to the AwardWallet? Isn’t it same thing as giving an access to my credit card?

  9. @Jay – As always, do what’s comfortable to you!
