14. Connect your accounts.
Whenever possible combine your account with your partner’s accounts (or your children’s accounts such as frequent flyer programs) so you can combine your efforts and all work towards a common mileage goal.

15. Keep track of your purchases, hotel stays and points used.
Nothing is worse than losing rewards points because you weren’t keeping track of what you earned and what you used. Guard your miles, protect what is yours and keep tabs on what you have already used so that no dollar goes unrewarded and no mile goes unused.
