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.

Chicago Seminars & Frequent Traveler University

If you’ve been collecting miles and points for more than a few years, I wouldn’t attend a miles & points conference solely to learn something new (you might learn a new trick or two), but to meet other folks who won’t roll their eyes when you talk miles and points (and share something new with you).  In my experience, the connections and conversations together with the presentations are what makes miles and points seminars great!

Points Envy Delivers 2013 State of the Points World Address

Note: This post is satire and you shouldn’t follow any of Points Envy’s suggestions, nor should you break the law.  Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

Also note: The following is a transcript of Points Envy’s 2013 State of the Points World Address, delivered February 14 at our local JPMorgan Chase branch.

Mr. Morgan-Chase, Mrs. Teller, fellow points fiends and miles junkies:

More than forty years ago, a man employed by Western Direct Marketing, a small advertising firm looking for a way to build customer loyalty for its client United Airlines, had a vision that would forever change the world of travel.  Relying on his G-d-given creativity and breakfast whiskeys, he had the revolutionary idea of rewarding customers in direct proportion to the number of miles they flew.

Over time this idea spread to other airlines and even to hotels.  As customers started building accounts with the new rewards they received for traveling, banks saw an opportunity to reward their customers with the same luscious non-currency in return for the customer accumulating debt.  And so reward credit cards were born, working with modern loyalty programs to comprise what we righteous points fiends refer to endearingly as “The Game.” Continue reading

Points Envy: Travel Hacking Goes to Business School

Note: This post is satire and you shouldn’t follow any of Points Envy’s suggestions, nor should you break the law.  Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

We all know that business travelers comprise a large portion of the general population of miles and points junkies, and that FlyerTalk is littered with rubbish MBAs.  This week at Billion Mile Secrets we head to the forefront of elite American education to lend our expertise to a revolutionary new curriculum designed for tomorrow’s foremost business professionals.

The connection between business schools and frequent travel is incredibly strong, resulting largely from MBA programs breeding consultants and other professionals who regularly fly around the world spouting knowledge for a hefty fee, all the while racking up points and miles on their companies’ dimes.  Hell, we even occasionally get consulting gigs just for the points earnings, as we’re usually able to take about eight to ten free trips before getting fired.

Of course, we all know that business school is, like business class, a huge joke.  History clearly demonstrates that either you are born rich or you will never understand business.  That is, until now. Continue reading
