The Miles to Memories Team

Shawn Coomer

Founder & Managing Editor

Shawn Coomer has spent the past decade carefully studying bank & travel loyalty programs and credit card offerings. 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 with the goal of helping readers achieve their travel dreams.

Shawn’s travel experience began in 2007 when he 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 his first big adventure, but it has been followed by countless others.

As part of his travels, 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, have allowed him to travel in style around the world for pennies on the dollar.
