AwardWallet is 1 of my favorite tools because it keeps track of most of our airline miles, hotel points, and car rental points.  For example, you can track your American Airlines miles with Award Wallet.

You Can Use AwardWallet to Track Your Miles & Points

But not all airline programs, like United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and Southwest Airlines, participate in AwardWallet.  But there’s a way you can still add those miles to your AwardWallet account!

But not all airline programs participate in AwardWallet.  Some folks though, have pointed out that while you can securely store your account information, AwardWallet does NOT track Delta, Southwest, or United Airlines accounts.

However, you can send your United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and Southwest Airlines mileage statements to your AwardWallet account and auto-forward them via email.  I’ll explain how!

Log into your AwardWallet account.  From your AwardWallet homepage, click “Manage Users” or “add+” to add an additional user to your account.

  1. Thanks, Daraius, for your very helpful blog. One observation on your AwardWallet item this morning…having airline award statements sent to AwardWallet and then forwarded to our personal email doesn’t seem very efficient, since we could instead have the airlines send the statements directly to our personal email address. Forwarding them through AwardWallet would only seem to make sense if AwardWallet would use the info in the statements to update our personal AwardWallets. The AwardWallet website seems to imply that it will do this, but I’ve tried forwarding my United, SW, and Delta statements to AwardWallet and have not yet seen my miles updated into my personal AwardWallet. Is there some way to do this that I have somehow not understood? If so, perhaps you could explain in the blog how to do this? Thanks!

  2. I agree with the first comment. This doesn’t seem like it solves anything.

  3. Hello, Alexi here from AwardWallet. So the point of this feature is just that – if we get your valid statement we definitely update your AwardWallet account automatically based on that email. I can assure you this feature does work, we have over 250,000 members right now and a ton of emails processed this way. If it doesn’t work, then something went wrong in your specific case (perhaps you sent it to the wrong address or the statement was never sent in the first place). If you contact us via https://awardwallet.com/contact.php we will look into it.

    Also, here is a quick trick / test you can run right now: open the page where your account info is shown (i.e. https://www.delta.com/acctactvty/myskymiles.action) – you can use the auto-login link for that on AwardWallet.com, and send it to your AwardWallet email address (yourusername@AwardWallet.com) by copy pasting the entire page (ctrl-a, ctrl-c, ctrl-v) and you will see that your account will be updated. You can also save this page as a file and send it as an attachment or even print it to pdf and send the pdf file as an attachment. All of those methods should work as long as you grab the right page…

    Cheers,
    -Alexi

  4. How can I use AwardWallet to track my and my husband’s points together? We have several CC (Chase ink, SP) and want to see them all together. Is that possible?

  5. Yeah, I guess people (Ryan/Kelly) dont read stuff entirely, but this AUTO updates your account with the statements that are forwarded to your AwardWallet email address. Alexi made that clear above.
