Just got an e-mail today that I've been selected to use the service. Registered a few of my programs and it pulled in all the account info. So far, so good. I think it's a great idea and looking forward to checking it out further.
I actually like the site, i tried award wallet, and various others, but I actually like the interface that usingmiles offers. Not for booking, but keeping track of the various progrsms. I only recently noticed that there was a testimonal from randy!
Did you do a write-up/review of these sites? Or is there a thread elsewhere on FT or even an external review?
I've been interested in service like this but been wary of trusting them enough to give my account information.
I started putting my confidential information in the sight and it just didn't feel right. I sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and my email bounced back. How do you really know where your information maybe going?
Programs: MR LT PLT, SPG PLT100/LT PLT, HH GLD, US LT SLV, AA GLD, UA SLV, A3 BLU, EK SLV, Hertz 5*, Avis 1st
I finally got time to start using it, after playing with AwardWallet and GoMiles for a while, and I'm unimpressed so far. My initial session of trying to load the 20 programs available (I have 28 in AW) yielded an hour of frustration, 8 programs loaded multiple times, and two hung browsers. Some more work tonight to get all 20 in and 8 say "Hold tight, this program will be available soon!". And one of the "hold tight, coming soon" is Midwest Miles, which no longer exists.
It also tells me that I'm somehow CP status on USAir with 509 miles. (hint - several digits are missing). I'll see how their support is - I emailed GoMiles with a glitch not long ago and it was fixed in a matter of hours. First I need to figure out how to report the glitch - it's listed as a Beta product but there's no obvious "report a bug" feature (maybe I'm spoiled by the Firefox 4 beta reporting features I've been using)
I've yet to play with the Alerts for Find Flights functions, but so far it's way behind AW and GM as an award program tracking tool.
EDIT: I just noticed two of the hotel programs are also missing multiple digits, so it has 9 programs correct, and 3 of those are zero balance that may or may not actually be right.
Does anyone have more recent experience with this tool?
I am particularly interested in using it for award travel searching (so I wondering things like do the search function, and the booking link, work well? can it search multiple dates? will it do automated searching with email notification?).
They are asking for $30 for a yearly subscription, which isn't going to break the bank, but also isn't cheap for a product they describe as still being in beta, so any additional info. on whether people have found it reliable and useful would be appreciated.
