Yesterday I was cleaning up my Awardwallet account. For those of you who aren’t aware about Awardwallet, they are a fantastic website which tracks miles/points for all your programs as well as your travel plans. You can signup for Awardwallet here.
Essentially, instead of logging in to all of your programs they will do it for you.
Awardwallet shows you when your mileage balances go up:
Awardwallet also shows you when your miles with expire (although they have a disclaimer saying that you should check directly with the award program):
It also shows how many miles you have in total. I am tracking 47 accounts and I wish I had more miles, but you can’t have everything in life or at least that is what someone told me. Awardwallet shows that I have just under 700,000 miles over 47 accounts I control.
I have some free upgrade coupons for first time users left, so you can use free-wswdgy as a code when you signup for Awardwallet for those of you who don’t currently have an account. First come first served.
To my awesome loyal readers who decided to scroll down and is obviously not a beginner, read here.
Now why I wanted to write this is obviously
because I wanted you to sign up with my Awardwallet link so I can get a free pro account because I had a question I wanted to ask you.
I feel fairly confident with Awardwallet‘s security so I personally put my passwords for accounts that I don’t have valuable miles in with their website, and my nice accounts (SPG, AA, UA, etc.) passwords on my local computer. Yes, they are different passwords.
So I want to ask you, what do you do with storing your passwords?
Vote or my poll plugin isn’t working so comment below. Or tell me to go away and I will just censor your comment.
Lastly, signup for Awardwallet here. It isn’t the last day to do so but it’s just a good reminder that that you do because I get free very tiny small miniscule amount of referral credits for a Pro subscription if you signup my for my Awardwallet link here.
Now didn’t you find that
annoying amusing strange? Back to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow. But I just wanted to make a point about links in posts and I can promise that I won’t link bomb my post for clicks on links. Since you’ve been so kind to read all the way down to the bottom, let me know that you think that linkbombing is bad in the comments below. More comments = more feedback for me.
