AwardWallet—the premier tool for tracking your points and miles—just got even better with the addition of a new method of keeping track of your mileage expiration dates. The new function lets you export your account expiration dates to your preferred digital calendar. That way you can see when points and miles are expiring right on your everyday calendar.

Enabling Calendar Expiration Notifications

Adding calendar notifications is simple and straightforward. After logging in, go to your AwardWallet dashboard. Click on views, then select Account Expirations Calendar import.

At this point, you will be prompted to make your AwardWallet calendar public. This does not mean that everyone can see your calendar. Instead, only those that have your specific link will be able to see your expiration dates.

Once you have given your approval, you will be presented with your individual mileage expiration calendar URL. Copy the link and leave it on your clipboard.

From this point, the process will depend on your calendar of choice. We have step-by-step directions for each of the three calendar options:

For those using Google Calendar, open your calendar and click on the plus sign next to “Other Calendars” on the left-hand side.

Then select “From URL”:

 

Finally, paste your calendar link into the new window and click “Add calendar”.

At this point, all your expirations will be automatically added to your calendar. In my case, my first set of expiring miles are on June 30, 2020. My calendar shows me 1,533 Lufthansa Miles and More miles are going to expire:

This is the general view, and if you want more information and links back to AwardWallet, all you need to do is click on the notification to get a window will all the relevant information.

Final Thoughts

The team at AwardWallet has been working hard behind the scenes to add to the arsenal of tools to keep track of your points and miles. This new feature joins other recent additions such as the option to track passports and travel documents and get instantaneous balance change alerts through Balance Watch.

AwardWallet members already have the option to receive balance expiration emails and push notifications through the AwardWallet app. In fact, AwardWallet sent over 1.3 million of these expiration warning emails to members in 2019. These alerts have helped keep the expiration of points and miles tracked through AwardWallet to a minimum.

However, we realize that some members appreciate additional ways of reminding themselves of expirations dates. With this new feature, your day-to-day calendar will give you all the heads up you need to take action and save yourself valuable points and miles.
