4 Best Tools for Tracking Your Rewards Miles

Many of the credit card offers that appear on the website are from credit card companies from which Wise Bread receives compensation. This compensation may impact how and where products appear on this site (including, for example, the order in which they appear). This site does not include all credit card companies or all available credit card offers.

One of the most challenging aspects of earning points and miles is keeping track of all of your accounts. Every airline, hotel, car rental company, and credit card program has a separate account, each with its own user name, password, current balance, and possibly an expiration date. It's not that unusual for frequent travelers to have more than a dozen accounts to manage. (See also: Best Credit Cards with Travel Rewards)

Thankfully, there are a few tools that can help you collect all this information, view it all in one place, and even help you use it efficiently. You will never lose or forget about your hard earned rewards again!


AwardWallet is one of the oldest, and most popular websites for tracking points, miles, and other loyalty programs. It currently boasts over a third of a million users who use it to track nearly 70 billion points and miles. The basic version is free and will track the reward balances for an unlimited number of programs for you and your family members. It will also track your travel plans and notify you via email when your balances are about to expire. AwardWallet Plus is available for a donation (the amount at your discretion) and includes extra reward account properties, a historical account balance chart, and the ability to export the information to an Excel format.

Points.com Loyalty Wallet

Points.com is one of the leading companies that work with the loyalty programs of airlines, hotels, and retailers. While much of its business is providing the technological backend to the companies that operate these programs, it also offers its Loyalty Wallet service to consumers, which can track and manage your accounts in over 110 different loyalty programs. While this may sound like a lot of companies, it's far from comprehensive. For example, there are notable absences such as British Airways, Wyndham, and Chase. However, Points.com is unique in that it offers users the ability to exchange points and miles between different programs, but at less than a 1:1 ratio. It also lets you redeem your points and miles for merchandise and gift cards. There is no charge to use this service.

Tripit Pro

Tripit Pro is a travel organizing tool that produces detailed daily itineraries for every trip while providing real-time flight alerts and notifications. It also allows you to stay on top of all the points and miles that you earn from over 150 different travel rewards programs with its Point Tracker feature. And while other point tracking applications require you to manually enter your program details, Tripit Pro lets you forward your monthly and quarterly statements to their email address, and the program will automatically populate the information on your account. This program, which is accessible via both a web browser and a mobile app, will alert you when your points or miles are about to expire. Other features include a seat tracker, the ability to share itineraries, and notifications of when you are eligible for a flight refund. The cost to use Tripit Pro is $49 per year, but you can try it for free for 30 days.

Award Mapper

Award Mapper is a simple website that offers a map based interface that allows you to search for hotels based on the loyalty program they are a member of. This is useful when you are looking to stay at a hotel and earn points in a particular program, or if you have points from one or more programs that you wish to use. There is no charge to use this app.
