Points/miles transfer “calculator”

Points/miles transfer “calculator”

  1. mgarofano

    Is there a “one-stop-shop” website that quickly/easily shows all relationships between airline, hotel, credit card travel programs? Like if I wanted to see which hotels allow transfer of points to Alaska Airlines or who are the air;line transfer partners of Chase Ultimate Rewards or etc.? Or, do I have to hunt all these down from the individual sites? I’m visualizing a “calculator” like interface where you just enter the travel rewards programs and it spits out the compatibilities. Thanks!

    Yep, there sure it. Greg, the Frequent Miler and his team maintain a number of resource pages including the Transfer Partner Master List page. I find it to be super-handy for just the reasons you’re looking for it. Here’s the link to the post:

    Personally I use the Google Docs spreadsheet (link in that post) and have it bookmarked so I go straight to it.

    Thanks, MidSouth Skier. Great resource! I also just found another site that looks helpful – [URL]https://travelbabel.com[/URL] Still running it through its paces but looks accurate.

    Not wanting to hijack this thread… but I recall from some years ago, a site that had a spreadsheet to compare the Number of Points required (by value-per-point) vs. Cash required for a Stay, Flight, etc. Does anyone recall that?

    I DO know that the value of points varies, but this site allowed either a download OR maybe on-site, you could change points value (per program) to figure out whether it was worth redeeming points or paying for something.

    That does sound familiar. It sounds like something either Frequent Miler or Scott at Travel Codex would have but I don’t see it at either of their sites unless I’m just missing it.

    Frequent Miler does have their Reasonable Redemption Values resource page which – unlike OMAAT’s “what are miles worth” value – is the rate that he believes you can reasonably expect to redeem miles for. I think one of the links in the post is to a Google Docs spreadsheet where you can tinker around with the values yourself.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank, all, for the input. Very helpful. Did any of you happen to check out the travelbabel site? It is very close to what I was looking for but I’m still uncertain as to how current/accurate it is. Thanks!
