About Us

by James Andrew Scott

Welcome! TripBadger® was created by savvy, seasoned travelers to share what we’ve learned about smart travel. To us, smart travel means minimizing time, headaches, and cost while maximizing fun, comfort, flexibility, and new experiences with friends and family. We enjoy writing and sharing our latest travel adventures with our readers.

We’ve accumulated a wealth of helpful tips and tricks that we share on this blog. We want you to make the most of loyalty programs and promotions to earn free flights, upgrades, hotel stays, and more. The features, fees, and rules of loyalty programs and travel promotions are very different and often confusing. On this site, we’ll review all the major loyalty programs and credit cards to help you make the best choice for you. We’ll keep you informed of new promotions, program offerings, and bonuses as well as general travel and airline news.
