    What do you think are the best ways to stay current with different airline and hotel programs aside from actually flying and staying? While I'm a 1P on United, I don't think I've flown Delta or American in more than 10 years and sadly lost a few miles here and there over the years. Same goes for some of the hotel program points. I know some survey sites and online shopping are ways to stay current and using sites like awardwallet.com has helped me stay on top of knowing when stuff is about to expire so I can take action. Any other suggestions or tips? I'd like to make a program specific list (example earn Hawaiian miles through e-rewards, earn United miles through mileage plus mall, etc.)

    Check out www.GoMiles.com. In addition to tracking your accounts they will provide reminders about expiry dates and specific instructions on how to extend the life of the points for minimal cost and effort. There is more information about the service in the ConcourseZ section of MilePoint.

    Pre order items at walmart, home depot, lowes, etc online with points, then pick up in store
