Proudly Introducing: Travel-Dealz’ Own Mileage Database

td where to earn featured image

Almost 3 years ago, we posted an article recommending the website, and we’ve been utilizing its data for many years in our flight offers to display mileage credits for various frequent flyer programs.

However, we soon became annoyed by the fact that WhereToCredit only displays award miles. Since the calculation of status and award miles in many frequent flyer programs now differs, and points are playing an increasingly significant role, we have built our own database of credits for frequent flyer programs in the background and combined both datasets.

This year, we reached a point where we already had so many frequent flyer programs in our database that I dedicated a few more working hours to input all (meaningful) frequent flyer programs. The calculation of expected miles is now 100% based on our data and independent of WhereToCredit.

You can find our WhereToCredit alternative at

There are separate tables for award and status miles. You can switch between the tabs easily:

In addition to status miles, it was important for us to consider and display many special cases (e.g., credits by regions and exceptions in the calculation).

We also organize points awarded based on (distance) categories in a clear manner:

We also display the status bonus that frequent flyers would receive based on their status:

Furthermore, we even cover cases where the number of miles depends on the booked fare instead of the booking class:

We have been offering various tools for calculating miles for your flights (mileage calculator), determining the easiest way to achieve status with your flights (status calculator), and calculators for individual frequent flyer programs such as United MileagePlus, Delta SkyMiles, or the British Airways Executive Club. On, you can also find the option to directly display the mileage credit for one or more flights based on the booking class:

We are delighted to provide you with added value through and hope that it makes all the frequent flyer programs more transparent. If you have feedback or suggestions for improvement (or a better name suggestion), please feel free to leave a comment!

    Great tool, thank you! I am a bit confused about the following results though: What exactly does it mean if the calculator prints out both an actual percentage number concerning the distance flown and a fixed amount of miles in the same cell? Example: A flight FRA-ACE with Discover Airlines in booking class Z results in 150% of the distance miles and a fixed (?) amount of 375 miles when collected for Air Canada’s Aeroplan program.

      Hi Ralf,
      the number under the percentages is the minimum amount of miles, in case you fly a very short route. ACE-FRA is quite long, though, giving you around 2800 miles.

      • Ralf says:

        Very nice, thanks! And what if the flight has a flight number of an airline eligible for collecting miles but is operated by a third-party carrier (e.g. LH operated by Air Baltic or LX operated by Edelweiss)? Can such more and more common constellations also be reflected in that tool?

        • Ditmar Lange says:

          As a rule of thumb, Star Alliance programs credit according to the operating airline, while SkyTeam and Oneworld go by the airline in the flight number.
          There are some even more complex constellations, but showing those in the overview would be too much for most cases and defeat the point of having a clean overview.

    Dear Team,
    Keep going, please.
