I went ahead and opened an account.

Absolutely love it so far.

They give you a free account upgrade if you get five other people to join.

This would definitely be a great feature!

I love Award Wallet. I wish they would support the Travelocity Master Card from Barclay/Juniper Bank.

Award Wallet can access info

So can award wallet gain our credit card info then and use it? Is it safe or not to use? I signed up and I like what I see so far

I guess the technical answer is yes if you store your logins and passwords on their server.

They would have access to your entire profile for each program and if a stored card is there, they would have access to that too. They could even book an award for someone else using your points/miles. That would be very traceable and stupid.

They technically can do it but will it happen is anyone's guess. I personally am not nervous. I equate it to the bank having my account number. Can someone abuse it, yes, will they abuse it, unlikely. However, I can not speak for awardwallet and the safeguards they have.

If you are nervous, store your data on your hard drive, which in itself poses some risk like anything on your drive. Or you can remove your stored cards for each program.

I wanted to address this concern...
  1. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving customer's data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
  2. All of your sensitive data is encrypted in our secure database using public private key technology. Whenever we transfer your passwords we use https secure protocol. We also give you the ability to store your passwords locally on your computer in a cookie. In our opinion this is not any more secure than storing your passwords in our database as most likely our database is better protected than your computer. There are also other advantages of storing your passwords in our database, for example we would be able to automatically check your balances for you and then send you a report with your balance changes. Finally, thousands of people have trusted us with their account information, our service is very mature (we launched our website in 2004) and the website is hosted and founded in the United States of America.

I submitted a suggestion to add the expiration date for Air Canada. Within two hours, I had a response saying:

Sounds good. We will add that to AwardWallet.


I was pretty impressed by that.

I just signed up and it looks good, so far. I had used Miletracker many years ago, but it was so flakey, for so long, I gave up.

So far, so good. I love Award wallet. I just have one suggestion. I love how the service updates the balances and then highlights changes (i.e. up 1500 miles, down 7 points, etc.) for the new activity. I check the site at least once everyday. Is there a way to shorten how long the new activity reflects? After seeing it once or twice, I pretty much know the balance has changed. I then have to cull through and see what has actually changed. Thanks and keep up the great work.

I will be joining AwardWallet based upon the recommendations here. Is there any sort of referral bonus? If so, would anyone like to receive referral credit? I note that zanzibar mentioned the "refer five people and get an upgrade." If this is the only referral bonus, I would request that anyone that wants to receive credit for my sign up be realistic about your ability to actual get four others, or already be on your way to it...

I signed up yesterday and added 39 accounts for me, my wife and kids. This is the coolest thing.
