A Milestone & A Giveaway

To start, I want to thank each and every Miles to Memories reader. I am truly humbled by all of the kind words and support of the site. On Friday Miles to Memories hit the significant milestone of having at least 5,000 readers per day for 7 days straight and yesterday made 8!

Over the past week the site broke its single day traffic record four separate times. Wow! I am glad that so many of you are finding value in the site’s content. I promise to continue to work hard to bring you high quality material. As always, feel free to email me with your questions any time! (shawn@milestomemories.com)


I wasn’t planning on a giveaway, but I have some unclaimed prizes from the last giveaway and milestones are worth celebrating! This giveaway was unplanned so I don’t have a lot of huge prizes, but stay tuned for bigger things in the future.


There are a total of six prizes. Each entrant can win only one.

  • 4 Award Wallet Plus Upgrade Codes
  • 1 Gogo one-time use code
  • 1 $10 Amazon eGift card


To enter simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59PM Pacific on Monday 5/4/2015. Each person can only get one entry and the final determination of eligibility will be made by me.

I will assign a number to each entry chronologically starting with 1. When selecting winners, I will randomly generate six winning numbers. The first four numbers will win the Award Wallet code, the next one will win the Gogo code and the final number will win the Amazon gift card.


Thank you again for visiting, reading and commenting on the site! On a side note, what sorts of prizes do you like? Do you prefer gift cards, electronics, miles/points? Let me know since I have some giveaways coming up that will take a bit more planning. Have a great Sunday!

  1. Wow congrats! I love all giveaways really but I suppose if I had to pick a favourite prize it’d probably be gift cards. But all 3 categories are great continued success to you!

  2. I enjoy reading your blog Shawn even if I don’t fly very often. Thank you for having giveaways. It’s a good way to grab readers who might not take a look at the articles. Once inside, they’ll see there is a lot to enjoy!

  3. Congratulations on your own amazing milestone! I am one of your new devotees, and I’ve been leading others to your website as well. Thank you for the chance at a give-away. You provide very worthwhile info for travelers like me who want to make smart choices. As for what to offer as prizes? For me, I like surprises, actually! For instance, I’ve I’ve never used GoGo and don’t know what an Award Wallet Plus Upgrade Code even is, so if I won this, I’d learn about something new. Fabulous!

  4. Thanks for being generous and kind with your wealth of knowledge about travel tips and advice!!!
    Have a great day:)

  5. Great! Thanks for sharing! Congratulations, and keep enlightening us with great content! P.S. If I get selected please put me down for a Award Wallet Plus Upgrade Code. I thought I left a comment last time you were giving this away, but I couldn’t find it later and the comments were closed 🙁

  6. I’d like Delta global upgrade certificates and fare vouchers/coupons as prizes. Thanks and keep up the good work!

  7. Thanks for all the great info…….I am new and learning a lot………we just got the companion pass with SW…..so excited !!!

  8. Congrats on 5K!!

    I find your postings are some of the most well written and most easy for ME to “fully understand”, compared to the majority of the blogs I read. Plus, there is no heavy sales pitch, which I greatly appreciate.

    If selected, I would appreciate anything but mostly the award walket upgrade. My tracking spreadsheet is getting a little big to manage!!

  9. Shawn…Your blog has been a great source of information about all the miles/rewards all around.
    Thanks for all your contributions !

  10. Shawn –
    We love the blog and the down to earth simple approaches you take to maximize mileage& points!

  11. Congrats on your milestone! You have some good travel tips worth reading. For giveaways, gift cards are good prizes since they can be used for hotels, airline tickets or car rental for traveling.

  12. Thanks for the contest! Gift cards and miles/points are preferred, I think Gogo is a mess to deal with. But Amazon is a sure hit every time!

  13. Congrats on 5K/per day. Enjoy reading your blog everyday! Giftcards and miles are great giveaways. Keep up the good work!

  14. Congratulations on your milestone and thanks for all your hard work. It means a lot to those of us who benefit from your knowledge.

  15. Congratulations! I know I’ve helped you reach those record page views as I only recently discovered your site and have been poring over old posts soaking in massive amounts of knowledge. So thanks as well as congrats!

  16. Congrats on the milestone and thanks for all the helpful info you provide on your blog. Much appreciated. And thanks for having a giveaway, too.

  17. This blog is awesome. You’ve truly inspired a travel hacking newby of a few months. 300k points already & I now know it’s possible to take my family of five hobbits on amazing, mostly free, lifetime of memories vacations. Keep the posts coming.

  18. This brought me to your website – i was looking for another source of information on this game. Thanks!

  19. Your site definitely delivers value – thank you for your work! Miles and gift cards are the best giveaways!

  20. Thanks for educating us everyday! I would not have gotten into the hobby if not for your informative blog posts. Cheers to a great milestone!

  21. I can believe you’ve set records. Posts last several weeks have been knocking it out of the park! Congratulations and nicely done. Cheers.

  22. I love your blog content! And that you don’t shamelessly flaunt credit card referral links like so many other blogs out there!
