Hello, guys! As a 23-years miles junkie, longtime FT member, ex-BA blogger, and loyalty industry professional, my team and I had an idea of building a great real time mega search engine around late February. This idea came to me after having to open 11-13 browsers to search for awards nowadays. We started development around mid-April, and now it is ready to go live and play. We are not the coolest, but we are the most powerful and useful one so far.

www.pointsyeah.com

The features included in this V1 are (most of them are unique to us):

1 It is Free
2 Speedy real time search of all banks and 19 programs in average of 10 seconds (international flights involving co-terminal are btw 13-15 seconds, rest are btw 5-8 seconds)
3 Preselected searches by banks or promotion
4 Show bank transfer promotion and points required (with bonus) on one page

5 Sort by points, tax (Cash is the king), quickest flights
6 filter by points range, programs, airlines, stops, and departure or arrival time.
7 Including Frontiers and Spirit airlines.
8 Show buy miles promotion with price per mile.
9 Cancellation policy of selected airlines
10 Recent search history for easy reference
11 Filter out all mixed cabin with 25% or less
12 Redirect to airline final booking page, so you dont have to enter again (most airlines)
13 Fully optimized mobile user experience

We will continue to roll out our new features in the next few weeks, please let us know your feedback and any bugs you find!

Thanks again for building the best product together.

How Does Points Alerts work?Unlike other alerts where you either have to enter lots of information to track one flight or only receive an alert once, our Points Price Alerts offer unlimited and continuous search capabilities with a maximum of 3 active alerts each time. Unless alerts are paused, deleted, or pertain to past travel dates, we will continue searching for you. Many award tickets are fully refundable (we also have most programs' change and cancellation policies on the search result page), enabling you to book now and exchange for a better option if the price changes. Once an alert is paused, deleted, or expired, the limits will be reset, and you can pause, delete, or modify them anytime you want.

The alert can track both price movement, like kayak/google price alerts, and new seats/changes in awards based on the maximum points users want to spend or other filters such as the number of stops and mixed cabin percentage.
We are not tracking by flights; we are tracking by all programs or banks' programs or loyalty programs. Each day will be counted as 1 active alert, and you can track all programs for particular travel dates.

You say you filter out mixed cabins with under 25% in biz/first. Yet it showed me results for LAX-YVR (biz), YVR-TPE-PNH (coach). (Jan 14)

This looks great! I noticed on mobile, I don't have the option to limit search to just programs with transferrable currencies.
