It’s March “Mayhem” (hey I don’t want to get sued, ya know)!  Since this is one of my favorite times of the year, I thought I’d celebrate by running a bracket competition so we can determine the best miles and points tool out there.

You might remember a few months ago when I published my list of the Top 10 miles and points tools (and the honorable mentions!).  Last week we had the 8 first round games

That left us with the following bracket – down to the final 8 tools!  Now it’s time for the quarterfinals!


Here’s our schedule for the quarterfinals

Each game is still open for voting! Next Tuesday (the 29th) we will close voting in all 4 contests and announce the final 4 tools.

Travel Hacking March Mayhem Quarterfinal #3: #1 Award Wallet vs. #9 Seatguru

Our third quarterfinal features the #1 overall seed along with a nominal underdog that won big.  #1 Award Wallet deafeated #16 Boingo Wifi with 83% of the vote, and #9 Seatguru smashed #8 Flyermiler by a 77% to 23% score

awardwalletAward Wallet is a tool designed to keep track of your different miles and points balances.  You can enter in your balances in hundreds of different programs and Award Wallet will track your balance as well as expiration dates (this is limited in the free version).  I’ve also used Award Wallet just to keep track of my different usernames / frequent flyer numbers, as well as I’ve used Award Wallet to keep track of my different travel plans.  Here is my review of Award Wallet

seatguru-logoI often use Seatguru when booking a first or business class flight.  When you need to know what type of plane is flown on a given route, or whether the plane will have lie-flat seats, Seatguru is my go-to app.  It can give you the seat configuration for a given plane as well as what types of seat it will have.  While equipment changes can and do happen, Seatguru can be a great resource.  Seatguru also has a feature that lets users review specific seats which I don’t use as often

So which will it be?  #1 Award Wallet or #9 Seatguru? Vote below!
