We recently launched milez.biz in the hopes of making the flight redemption rates from the various frequent flyer programs more transparent. The motivation for this project stemmed from our own frustration from finding the most optimal award rates for certain routes. We noticed that there are sometimes widely varying rates, depending on the program and destinations. Milez.biz is very simple: type two city names into the “From” and “To” fields, select from the auto-complete and let the calculator figure out what the rates for return flights between the two selected cities are. The rates in our database correspond to the rates published on the programs’ websites. You no longer need to figure out which zone a city belongs to, or if it is even part of a program, milez.biz does it all for you. We currently track over 40 programs and will be adding more soon. We track both zones and distance based programs.
