I admit that I am an award junkie. Nothing makes me feel better than to look at my frequent flier / hotel accounts and see that there are enough miles/points for a great get away. We are firm believers that these miles should be used for up front International flights. As for hotel stays think places like Mauna Kea Beach Resort and St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.
There are a multitude of websites that discuss mileage/point earning and usage. In our house, however, keeping track of all of the programs can be a difficult process. We came across a site called Award Wallet www.awardwallet.com
The award wallet site is free and will track and monitor all of your award programs and itineraries. It will also notify you as your balances change and most importantly when they are in danger of expiring.
