AwardWallet is my go-to choice for tracking all my miles and points. I’ve enjoyed how easy it makes my job of tracking miles for the various family members I help.
A while ago, American Airlines essentially told AwardWallet to bug off and stop accessing it’s site. I was a bit bummed, especially since AA is usually more customer friendly than it’s legacy counterparts. I had hoped AA would reconsider.
Unfortunately, it looks like the tide is headed in the opposite direction.
There’s already a discussion on Milepoint.
No doubt I’m not a big Delta fan. But, this is definitely not good news. Here’s hoping this doesn’t start a wave of programs choosing to block access from third-party sites such as this. I get that there could be some fundamental security issues here, but in the name of technological advancement, it seems there has to be a way to make this work. Trying to track all my miles and points across 30 different platforms, well, sucks.
