The Points Loyalty Wallet from Points.com is being retired next month, according to the website.
Here’s what you need to know.
Points Loyalty Wallet Coming to an End on September 6
Like the popular AwardWallet, Points.com’s Points Loyalty Wallet product helped people keep track of their miles and points in 1 single place. The wallet offered real-time point updates every time you signed in, bank-level security to keep your information safe, and access to these records via your phone or tablet through the Points.com app.
There’s now a banner that appears at the top of the Points Loyalty Wallet page that reads, “Please note that the Points Loyalty Wallet is being retired on September 6, 2022. Please visit the website(s) of your loyalty program(s) to check your balances. We thank you for using the site and wish you the best!”
There’s no indication as to why the service is being sunset. The feature allowed travelers to exchange points and miles between programs (often at a less than 1:1 ratio) and redeem them for shopping and dining gift cards.
More than a dozen points programs were featured in the service, including some popular programs such as Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, Delta SkyMiles, IHG One Rewards, and World of Hyatt.
Every program featured in the Loyalty Wallet had the ability to track your points. You could also exchange points in some programs like Amtrak Guest Rewards and Delta SkyMiles, and redeem Icelandair Saga Club and IHG One Rewards points, among others.

An Alternative to the Points Loyalty Wallet
If you’re looking for another service to keep track of your points and miles balances or expiration dates, you may want to consider using AwardWallet. It’s free to create an account, and the free version includes services like automatically tracking your reward balances, notification when balances expire via email and push notifications, and more.
A paid version, which costs $30 per year, includes everything in the free version, plus historical transactions for some of your loyalty accounts and the ability to export your award balances into Excel or PDF formats.
The Points Loyalty Wallet feature from Points.com is being phased out after September 6, so make sure to check your balances directly through your rewards programs. This may be a good time to consider the switch to managing your points and miles through a product like AwardWallet.
If you have a small number of orphaned points or miles that you’re not sure how to redeem, consider donating them to charity (our guide can show you how)!
