About RewardExpert

For most people, sorting through hundreds of frequent flier miles, credit card rewards and loyalty programs is a hassle. We enroll in programs with the hopes they will pay off at some point, but what actually happens? We forget about them, and let millions of points go unredeemed every year. Not anymore.

The RewardExpert mission is simple. We believe:

  • Anyone can fly for free if they spend wisely and plan ahead.
  • Travel money should be spent on experiences, not on airfare.
  • Every traveler is different. Personalized reward strategies are best suited to achieve travel goals.

We are a high-energy team of talented individuals with a passion for travel. RewardExpert offers a supportive environment that encourages creativity, productivity and innovation. Perks of working at RewardExpert include a flexible working environment, comprehensive vacation package (we’re all about travel, after all!), healthcare benefits, team lunches, casual dress code, and more.
