In what areas that awardwallet.com is better than points.com? I only have accounts with points.com and thinking about trying something new. Points.com seems a bit slow to me.

It's a pretty different animal, really. Points.com is largely about trading and buying points, and is, at the moment, extremely slow, buggy, and all around painful to use.

On the other hand, AwardWallet is really just for tracking points, and is fast, efficient, and pretty lightweight.

I agree with others that the interface could use an upgrade, but not at the expense of the Points.com upgrade, which basically ruined that site for me.

I really like AW especially the fact that they log you in automatically when you click. why can't mint.com have such a feature (or fo they?)

i tried awardwallet but was bugged that it didn't work with southwest, it was a little clunky to, i liked that they logged you automatically in the programs, but i recently switched to usingmiles.com and it works great! a lot better than awardwallet and points, and they support southwest RR credits.

Question Any updates on problems?

I'm thinking of using AW, but would like to know whether the problems that SD1K and others reported are still going on. Any updates on this?

AwardWallet is excellent. Yes it tracks all your FF programs. The real jewel is the flight tracker and change updater in the Plans module. AW is on the way up. Points.com is on the way down.

Has anyone else noticed that in the past few weeks aw hangs? It is getting a little annoying. Maybe my computer?

No hanging on my end. Maybe try clearing your broswer's cache?

when a program changes its webpage (e.g., like delta did a month or two ago), awardwallet has to change the way it accesses that page to get updated info. you can click the "contact us" link to send them a message about it. they seem to take care of changes within a few weeks at most.

there are other factors that can cause hangs, such as a lot of traffic at the program's website making it difficult for awardwallet to log in. checking your balances when the program website is updating (3-6am EST is probably the most common window) could also cause timeouts.

if you store your passcodes locally, check to see if you've lost data. i recently wiped my firefox browser's cache, cookies, and history, and had to re-enter my passwords.

One of my rewards accoutns currently has 0 points, but awardwallet is showing almost 300,000. Too bad I can't redeem through awardwallet directly.

AwardWallet is fantastic and I have no issues with it. It might occasionally get stuck during an update, but almost always resolved pretty quickly.

Sucks they dont do Southwest, but thats because WN is blocking them, not because they dont want to support them.

I track over 30 programs for 4 people, and its a fantastic resource

Autologging into my Delta account has not been working for the last 4 or 5 days. Just hangs up.
