It’s important to manage your miles and prevent them from expiring. Odds on if you’re reading this website, you don’t need a newspaper article to tell you that!
But this article seemed like a good prompt to remind you about a free software program called Miletracker. It’s what I use to manage my frequent flyer miles. It checks all your accounts with a single click and can log you into any of them with a click as well.
For a more full service option — including letting you know when your miles will be expiring (so you can do something about it before that happens!), letting you know about current bonuses, and even guaranteeing your mileage against unauthorized use — consider Mileage Manager. It comes with a (very) small cost but is likely worth it for many.
