Just curious, why travelcodex over awardhacker? Awardhacker has all the programs that travelcodex has and more.

One notable difference I see is the lack of southwest so U.S. domestic flights appear much more expensive travelcodex than awardhacker depending on location.

Awardhacker lets you know what’s *theoretically* possible, but doesn’t actually check available inventory.

It actually checks inventory? From the description it doesn’t seem that way. It says it checks the award charts, but makes no claims about inventory.

“The Award Maximizer will match these to the award charts of 14 different airlines and return the cost of an award ticket”

If I didn’t enjoy the search so much I might give Juicy Miles a try at the $10 level, but the $30 level just seems too high. If I start seeing more stories about people having great success with it or they give a free trial I might be interested. I tried Expert Flyer before and think that’s nice, but its more than what I need; the though trial allowed me to know what it can do and that it’s there if I ever needed it.

Flight award search sites that make you pay-per-month feel bad — travel doesn’t happen monthly and the point of award travel is to NOT spend cash. I feel like ad revenue / crypto mining (i.e. they use a % of your CPU while you browser their site) make a lot more sense — let me pay you indirectly or if you really have to, show me a video every X searches.

Unless everyone says this is the ultimate tool for flight searching and it saves a fortune of money & time then I wouldn’t even consider it for $30 per month.

Any company that destroys ScamPal is great in my book

Juicy Miles can uncover gems.
Paid for the 5 day trial yesterday. Kinda of cool . Ran about 40 seaches last night uncovered a gem.

Almost booked this but were short 2K UR for me and DW for this fall.

Quantas First class seats PDX – MEL flight time 15:55 in First class on Qantas
Airbus A380-800 for 60K UR.

Australia’s on my bucket list, just further down but I dread 14-16 hours in a Economy seat, so gonna pass.

Will say that at this time the $30 for a month would be good for planning annual vacation for people with inflexible jobs and fixed PTO. not enough value for year round for most.

Love Juicy Miles. I think the fee needs to be lower for them to scale, but it’s very, very good.

Used Here for years to save favorites, plan trips. Stuff has inexplicably (to me) just disappeared from g-maps favorites but never from Here (now Here we go). Add to that Here has always worked off line and still works better off line than g-maps. In Europe Here had spots g-maps didn’t. In Venice (albeit many years ago) g-maps was a bad joke for POI & navigation walking/boating around, Here was close to flawless.
