Friday's, Panera Bread, and Open Table are supported by the site.
Users can track program miles and points, which are displayed in a dashboard, and search for rewards. The site allows users to book free travel and find bonus deals for shopping or traveling.
A premier $29.99 annual membership, which users can try free for a limited time, lets customers search airline seat and hotel room availability; see how many miles, credits, or points are needed to book reward travel, and then book the trip; and receive alerts when miles and points are about to expire.
