The Trick to Using AwardWallet to Track Your United, Delta and Southwest Miles
Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full advertising policy: How we make money.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.
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!
AwardWallet Does NOT Track Delta, Southwest or United Airlines
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!
How to Track United Airlines Miles With AwardWallet
Step 1 – Click “Manage Users” or “add +”
Log into your AwardWallet account. From your AwardWallet homepage, click “Manage Users” or “add+” to add an additional user to your account.Note: You can skip to Step 4 if you’re setting this up for yourself (and not an additional user).
Step 2 – Click “Just Add a New Name”
On the pop-up screen, click “Just add a new name.”
Step 3 – Enter Name & Email
Then you can add a new user to your profile. Enter the new user’s name and email address, then click “Add to your profile.”
For this example, we’re using the name, “Jeff Smisek” and the email [email protected].
To add the new user to your account, click “Continue.”
Step 4 – Add United Airlines Account to Your Profile
The next step is to add an account to Jeff Smisek’s profile. From your AwardWallet homepage, either click the “+” icon at the top of the screen or the “+” icon next to the name.

United Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines, are technically not supported by AwardWallet, as you may have noticed by AwardWallet’s disclaimer.
However, you can forward your United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and Southwest Airlines statements to your AwardWallet account and your email via Outlook, Yahoo, or Gmail.
Step 6 – Click “New” to Update Your United Airlines Email Address
