Maximizing

Starting this morning, reward cardholders will now be able to signup for consolidated, online, reporting of frequent traveler credits. Chicago-based MaxMiles, Inc. and Excite, Inc. have teamed up to offer an online frequent flyer mileage management service called ‘MileageMiner’. The new co-branded service enables travelers to receive all of their frequent flyer account information in one online consolidated statement. In addition to offering consolidated account balances, the ‘MileageMiner’ service also highlights the most current mileage promotions and offers, searches for missing mileage credits and warns travelers of mileage expirations. Through Excite, customers can enroll in the service for $2.95 per month with the first three months free. MaxMiles says the average traveler is enrolled in 4.1 airline programs, 3.1 hotel programs, and carries two mileage earning credit cards. Therefore, the company says, the typical business traveler receives nine different account statements in the mail each month, most of which are usually weeks out-of-date.
