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 #4: #2 Autoslash vs. #10 Flight Aware

Our final quarterfinal should be a great matchup – #2 Autoslash defeated #15 Osmand by 72% to 28%, while #10 Flight Aware BARELY beat #7 Hotel Hustle, 52% to 48%

autoslashI’ve written before about Autoslash, which is a tool that you can use to get the best price on a rental car.  They have an option that can let you book your rental car directly with them, but I have not found that to be as effective.  Where the magic happens is that you can book a car anywhere online, and then enter your details into Autoslash.  It’s how I got a car that Avis was renting for over $100 / DAY for just over $100 for AN ENTIRE WEEK!  More recently, I had another huge success with using Autoslash to save about 50% on my car rental

I use Flight Aware to track aircraft movements.  It lists historical flights for just about every possible combination.  I’ll often use that when I am tracking my flights, to make sure what type of aircraft flew a particular route, along with what the exact takeoff and landing times were (because you know, I like to keep accurate records!) 🙂

So which will it be?  #2 Autoslash vs. #10 Flight Aware? Vote below!
