Travel Realized

Shawn Coomer has spent the past decade traveling with his family & carefully studying travel rewards programs. He earns and redeems over a million miles/points per year across multiple airline, hotel, bank and other loyalty programs.

Miles to Memories was formed to bridge the gap between the points/miles you earn and the memories you create with them. A part of the BoardingArea network, Miles to Memories launched in 2013 as an evolution of the family travel blog Family ‘Round the World which dates back to 2007.

In 2007 Shawn Coomer set out with his wife and then 7 year old son on a year and a half long journey around the world.  That trip was Shawn’s first big adventure, but it has been followed by countless others including multiple month long excursions in the U.S. and a three month family European backpack trip in 2013.

An expert in saving money, Shawn stays in luxury hotels, flies in premium cabins and carries elite status with more than a dozen loyalty programs. His on the road experiences combined with careful study, make him an expert on how to travel for the least amount of money possible while also taking time to experience different cultures.

He started Miles to Memories with one simply goal. The site is here to teach you how to realize your financial and travel dreams while saving money and spending less. To accomplish this, our team shares their expertise when it comes to credit cards, rewards programs and travel.

If you do have any questions about anything on the site or are just looking for advice, you can reach Shawn personally by emailing shawn@milestomemories.com. You can also contact us via Twitter or join our Facebook Community with over 2,000 members.

Happy saving and safe travels!
