If you’re like most travelers, then you probably like accruing miles while trotting the globe. Not only that, but you probably signed up for a ton of different loyalty programs– from United’s Mileage Plus to Icelandair’s Saga Club to Bangkok Airways Flyer Bonus. Similar to the scene in Up in the Air with George Clooney, you could pull from your wallet cards and numbers for as many as 10 different miles programs; everything from car rentals to airlines to hotels. How do you manage it all?
For you miles hoarders out there, a new application helps you manage it all. According to TechCrunch, the new application, UsingMiles, is your one-stop shop for managing all of your loyalty programs. The application is currently in beta, but travelers who are interested in trying it out can request an invite and they’ll contact you when space is available, or you can get a referral if you know of someone who is already using it.
According to TechCrunch, UsingMiles is a free program for travelers. The user-friendly dashboard lets you manage your credit cards, hotel rewards, airline miles and car rental points all in one place. Furthermore, you can also search and book travel from the dashboard. Travelers can use cash, miles or a combination of both when booking. The tool currently covers 90% of the world’s loyalty programs.
