Traveler Tools

These are some of my favorite tools for managing and maximizing my loyalty programs and managing my travel plans:

AwardWallet - keep tabs on all your loyalty program balances and expiration dates

evreward - search all the major loyalty program shopping portals to figure out which has the best deal for a given retailer

SeatGuru - figure out the best (and worst) seats on your plane

TripIt - easily keep track of all your travel details in one place. The travel agency I now have to use for work syncs with TripIt, which makes it even easier.

AwardTravelr - search enging for finding award availability on all three of the major alliance
