Resurrection!…. and managing accounts.

Hello everybody!  I’m back from the dead.  Throughout my hiatus, I was meaning to update this blog, but enjoying my destination kinda got in the way.  Sorry.  I’ll be writing my reports from my first round the world trip back in April and this trip too.  Stay tuned.

After signing up for a few credit cards and doing various promotions, I have too many accounts with various airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and other miscellaneous reward programs to keep track of.  Luckily I came across Award Wallet.  Not only does it store your account numbers and passwords (can have the website securely store it, or store your passwords natively on your computer), but also shows your balances, as well as expiration dates.  Its free to sign up, and nowadays, I’m not sure what I did before without it.  Currently it helps me remember information for over 15 reward programs (airlines, hotels, car rentals, survey sites, casino points, credit card rewards).  Even if you don’t have that many accounts, even if you only have 2 or 3, its still a valuable tool to keep track of all your expiration dates in one place.

One of the great features of the website is that you can use it to manage multiple users.  Lets say I manage my entire family’s accounts of frequent flier miles.  I could use the site to store all their account numbers & passwords/pins and I can label them “Mom” or anything I choose.

Sign up for a regular account is free.  I was skeptical at first, too.  But then all the major players of this travel hacking game use this site too.  Can’t be that bad or unsafe then.  (Here are the FAQs if you are still a little wary.)  Until they last, I have a few free coupon codes to upgrade to an Award Wallet Plus account.  As long as you are a new user, you too can have a free Plus account.  From the FAQs, here are the benefits of upgrading:

Regular vs. Plus account

I have a referral link for anybody interested in joining.  (Get Gowing Award Wallet referral signup link)  If you are interested in the code for a free upgrade to Award Wallet Plus, leave a comment here or on the Get Gowing Facebook Page and I’ll send you one.
