Question PLEASE, someone, design this cool phone app for FF Folks.

Maybe this app already is out there but I can't seem to find it.


Imagine ... you want to buy something from Nordstrom or 6pm or Endless or whatever store. Now ... you want to earn more than 1 mile on a dollar so you go to your AAdvantage or Avios or MileagePlus shopping portal and search for that vendor to see who gives the most miles on a dollar.

Problem is ........ you just spend over 5-7 minutes to find the sites, find the retailer, etc.

What if there was an app that checked how many miles you get for a retailer throughout the 4 big shopping portals (Aadvantage, Avios, MileagePlus, Skymiles).

I'd pay $10 easily for that app.

you know this would be an awesome app right? Everyone that uses one shopping portal most likely is signed up to others.

Isn't that evrewards?

If I understand you correctly, Evrewards.com does what you're asking.

It's not an app, but I think evreward accomplishes what you want to do.

Here is a previous discussion of FT.

Yep ... thank you very much. Would be nice to have as an app. Something that stores your FF #s so that all you do is tap GO and you're shopping.

Good info here on this subject

I use LastPass and have it handle all my logins and FF #s. The mobile version costs a whopping $1/month but I find it completely worthwhile - basically I tap "Autofill" and I'm shopping.

See this thread for more info about LastPass.

i find evrewards very useful, but it also surprises me how often their info is outdated. first week of february i was looking to buy something at sears.com and evreward listed it as 10x at ultimaterewards, when it was actually 4x. just checked and that situation is still true (incorrect info).

it is nice that they include amex MR and ultimaterewards malls in the list, but please (if they are reading) keep it updated somehow!

You really want this on an app? Shopping like this is the kind of thing I generally do from a full computer - where I can visit one of these websites.
