Frequent Flyer Programs
Almost all airlines have frequent flyer programs. Major online travel agencies such as Travelocity and Expedia also have Frequent Flyer sections where you can track your miles. Below are listed some of the most popular websites that offer information of interest to frequent flyers and that will track, manage, and tell you about offers related to spending those miles.  Today, you can accumulate and spend miles from airlines, hotels, car rentals, and many other sources. 
Some of the airlines are now offering "goods" for miles where you can trade in your miles for points toward buying "stuff".  These include Delta, American Airlines, Northwest, Continental, USAir and TWA. 
Milepoint.com also offers this type of service for some of the airlines mentioned above, as well as, for Hilton HHonors.  Most frequent flyer programs also let you donate miles to your favorite charity.

Wikipedia has a good article on Frequent Flyer Programs.
