TRAVELERS ARE CHECKING THEIR FREQUENT FLYER MILES MORE THAN THEIR CREDIT SCORES
We at the Traveler Confidential aren’t sure whether this is a good or bad thing. A new survey shows that there are more people monitoring their airline frequent flyer miles than there are people checking their credit scores each month.
According to the 2016 Mile Satisfaction Survey by MileCards.com, 17 percent of people saving miles check their balances monthly compared to 15 percent who check their credit scores each month. And, it seems millennials are guilty of doing it the most. The study showed that 24 percent of people ages 25-34 look at their balances at least monthly.
With travelers closely monitoring their airline rewards miles so often, you might think many people are content with their frequent flyer programs. But, that’s not the case. More than half (53 percent) are indeed, satisfied but 28 percent admitted they were dissatisfied, and 10 percent don’t even think the mileage programs are worth it.
