If you’re like me, you play in more than one frequency scheme. While my primary programs are American AAdvantage and Hilton HHonors, I hold a stash of miles in several programs, and sometimes it’s a challenge to easily keep up with all of them. I recently re-upped my membership with MileageManager to help me with monitoring my mileage and points accounts. With MileageManager, you can track all of your accounts on a single screen, monitor your progress towards elite status, and monitor the expiration date on your miles or points. You can also establish email alerts for any bonus opportunities your programs may offer from time to time.
MileageManager has been around for a while, and I’ve used it in the past. But the site was recently relaunched with a fresh new look, and a compelling new beta feature called AwardPlanner. AwardPlanner will search for award seats in all of your programs based on dates you select, and if no seats are found, the system will continue searching for them on a daily basis. When seats are found, you get an email alert. No need to continually surf around to different websites. Other sites, notably ExpertFlyer (which I also use), offer a similar ability to search for awards on multiple carriers, but I’m not aware of any other site that can perform searches of all of your frequency programs (that you list with MileageManager) and alert you to award availability just by setting up a single query. Feel free to comment to the blog if you know of one.
At $14.95 per year, MileageManager offers a decent package of benefits for the price.
