Reward Redemption Comparison Tool?

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for a website that will let me input my redemption flight goal (e.g. NYC to Heathrow) and then help me figure out which program would be best for redemption (AA vs. Delta vs. Chase, etc.)

I know I saw something similar somewhere, at some point- but I've lost the URL. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a tool like this?

On a similar note, I'd also appreciate any tips you have for finding lists of current redemption deals. I have a handful of vacation ideas in mind but am pretty flexible about which one I take, so I'd love to be able to find some sort of way to figure out the best options for my points. The majority of my miles are with American, but I also have some United mileage and Chase UR points.

Thanks!

I don't know the link offhand but the wandering aramean has such a tool.

My approach to this is keeping a spreadsheet with all mileage opportunities out of my home airport. Takes some initial legwork but worth it to me.

To previous poster: I don't think a hotel comparison spreadsheet exists.
