Last week, I came across a thread from milepoint user Phlee about a new frequent flyer tool he and his colleagues had introduced. It is a web site called Milez.biz and it’s a very simple concept. You use it to find out how many miles an award will be between 2 cities. Now, I know many of us have different airlines’ award charts etched in our brain, but for those of you that don’t, this is a handy tool.
1. Enter your origin and destination airports.
2. Click GET MY MILEZ and wait for the site to gather the information.
3. Check out your results!
It’s as simple as that. They even have links to the log into each frequent flyer program, apply (if you are not a member), and a link to the official award chart from each airline. Again, the pros may not see too much value here, but I certainly do. I have frequent flyer miles spread out over a few programs and when I choose my next destination, I like to know which FF program may be the least amount of miles for my particular cabin. One suggestion might be to have a choice of what FF programs you want displayed as I don’t care to see the results of airlines I’ll never have any business with.
In this example alone, we’re going to Bali (DPS). I have miles AA, AC (Aeroplan), and UA. From this quick search, you can see that my best bet for First Class is AA at 135k miles. UA a close second at 140k, and Aeroplan a disappointing third at 180k miles. So if you’re planning a trip or would just like to brush up on your mileage redemption rates, check out Milez.biz!
