Using EXCEL To Track Your Stays & Earnings

I started tracking my spend in 2018 – I had some missing points and spend, and at that time Points Advance was available, so I used my spreadsheet to forecast our travel and earned points, based upon known work travel.
It’s been through a few modifications since then, and still works well for me to track my annual activity. I mark rows and cells in different colors to highlight them for myself.
  • Red rows/cells have something wrong – points or spend
  • Green rows/cells are finished, properly posted stays
  • Tan rows/cells are future travel with estimates for spend

There are some basic instructions below the download button. I’ll be updating the post with more information, including more insight and instructions, soon.  🙂
