Travel Apps :: mileBlaster

mileblaster iphone appToday I'm excited to tell you about one of the most well received and user-friendly mileage tracking apps out there: mileBlaster, selected by CNET Reviews as one of 10 essential apps for frequent fliers. What's different about mileBlaster in relation to other mileage and loyalty program tracking apps is aside from showing your progress for each travel reward program entered, providing details on your progress towards awards and alerting you to mile expiration, it informs you about current and relevant mile bonuses. Trip Styler Tip :: Many airline mileage reward program miles expire after no account activity over 18-months, so having an app to help you manage multiple accounts can mean the difference between a free flight and expired miles.

Because of this app's added features it costs a cool $5.99, but here's the kicker: if you have multiple accounts like me {ie - two fairmont president's club memberships}, or want to share the app with a family member, you can both enter your airline and hotel loyalty programs into this app {on one phone}.

Using the App, I just found out that I have 16,000+ miles expiring in 6 months with Flying Blue {Air France and KLM miles program}. To this end, I got an email from app providing me with 4 ways I could use, extend or redeem my miles. Invaluable. If I let the miles go, that's basically part of a free flight or hotel stay that's going into oblivion, but being on top of it I can quickly figure out my options and make the most of the miles earned.

As mentioned above, this app tracks airline miles and hotel reward programs, but it really, really excels in the airline miles tracking department!
