When I tell people I participate in various airline and hotel loyalty programs, the one question that pop up all the time is "how exactly do [I] keep track of them?". To answer this in the shortest way possible, AwardWallet. AwardWallet allows you to store your username and password for each of these programs (always handy since I tend to forget them sometimes) and it will also refresh your account balance and the respective expiry dates.
The one thing I love most about AwardWallet is that basic tracking (which stores your account name and password) is free but in order for you to see the expiry dates on all your accounts (I have over 30!), you will have to make a token donation every six months (minimum of US$5). Seriously, I think that US$10 a year is a small sum to pay for your ease of mind - you no longer need to worry about your points and miles! Do note that as usual, I do not get paid writing this article but I do get my membership extended for every 5 successful referrals - you do too!
