Free First Class Next Month: Sign Up for Award Wallet


Hey! You’re reading an outdated Free First Class Next Month series. Check out the latest version published in April of 2015 here.

This is the third post in a monthlong series that started here. Each post will take about two minutes to read and may include an action item that takes the reader another two minutes to complete. I am writing this for an audience of people who know nothing about frequent flier miles, and my goal is that by the end, you know enough to fly for free anywhere you want to go. Previously Signing Up for Travel Loyalty Programs.

Yesterday you signed up for airline programs. Today I’ll tell you how I keep track of my miles and points:

Award Wallet is a free service that tracks your balance, status, user name, and password in nearly every airline, hotel, credit card, rental car, and loyalty program there is in one place.

Or at least that used to be true. In the last few months, United, Delta, American, and Southwest have all blocked Award Wallet from accessing account information to display on its site.

But I still use Award Wallet because it tracks US Airways, Hawaiian, Jet Blue, Virgin America, and Virgin Atlantic for me plus my transferable points–Ultimate Rewards and Membership Rewards–and hotel points. (More on transferable points and hotel points later.)

Not only are your balances now listed in one place, but you can click the Update All button to see them all updated in a fraction of the time it would take to go to every program’s site.

Another great feature of Award Wallet is that it automatically enters your programs and finds your upcoming travel plans and puts them in one place, the Travel Plans tab.

Award Wallet is a fantastic resource that I use every day to keep track of almost all my balances in one place.

So what are you waiting for? Go to the site now, and open your free account. Populate it with the accounts you set up in Free First Class Next Month: Signing Up for Airline Programs by clicking the Add a Program Link, then searching for its name or finding it listed alphabetically by category.

By doing this, you can forget about memorizing account numbers and passwords, they are all stored by Award Wallet. You can also substantially cut down on the number of programs you have to log into to see your award balances.

Unfortunately the free version of Award Wallet only shows expiration dates for three programs’ miles. I have a free code to upgrade, which will cause Award Wallet to display all your expiration dates. First ten come, first ten served: free-nzulqx (all gone). Here are five more six-month upgrade codes, soon to disappear soon too:


In the comments, TATravelers generously left his code. If you have free codes, leave yours here please.

  1. Thanks for the free upgrade code Scott. It worked like a charm. I just found your site from the NY Times article and am really enjoying it. For the first time, you have enabled and motivated me to get all these travel incentives organized. Prior to now, I have been haphazard about using and applying them because it was just too much work and was always secondary to the actual reasons that I was traveling (work, vacation, etc.) Thanks for your efforts to make sense out of all these promotions and to help us get the most out of them!

    • I think you’ll be very happy with your decision to get organized. More and better awards are in your future. And this is all pretty fun–at least for me!

  2. I love award wallet! I store all my programs there, not just travel-related ones. I’d love the free code, but when I tried it said that the number of times used has been exceeded. Darn!

  3. Most of the airline and hotel reward accounts are just that. The Ultimate Rewards account though provides access to the actual credit cards management associated with the UR account. I don’t know how people feel about it, but I do not feel comfortable giving award wallet access to my credit card accounts. The Chase rep too advised against doing so.

    • I do. I’ve heard people express this, and it’s something or people to consider: their own comfort level.

  4. I tried to use the coupon code but it said the number of times it can be used has been exceeded. It must be dead?

  5. I still use Award Wallet for my login info and total miles for the program I can’t directly connect to. I had to make up a fake program name for American and manually update the miles, but at least the info is all in one place.

  6. Re upgrade codes for Award Wallet. Is there any code for existing users to upgrade for free as when I try to upgrade the App only gives me the choice of paying $5.49 through iTunes.

    Thanks in advance. Love your blog.


  7. if I already signed up for award wallet where can I apply a coupon code, if i still can (hoping one of these work)? Thanks
