UsingMiles – If you’re a frequent flyer, you probably have multiple accounts in different companies by which you earn program miles and awards. Although all of these keep you up to date with your latest balance, special offers and more relevant info, it’s hard to keep track of all the different accounts. UsingMiles is here to simplify the process by offering “the best free way to manage your air and hotel loyalty programs and book cash-and-award travel. UsingMiles helps you manage your frequent flier accounts and hotel rewards.”
Although I’m not a frequent flyer per se, I do have two mile award accounts: OnePass by Continental which UsingMiles partners with, and Lufthansa’s Miles & More which the site is not working with as of yet. Despite this downside, UsingMiles looks like a great one-in-all frequent flyer center particularly for US and Canadian citizens (for a complete list of partnering airlines visit their FAQ page). In addition to having all of your mile award programs in one place, UsingMiles offers cash saving travel searches and booking including flights and hotels, with car rental, credit cards and trains coming soon. There is also the flight (travel) alert which can save you both time and money. Give it a try – it’s free!
