#TripItChat is a monthly chat on Twitter, sponsored by TripIt and hosted by me. The chat usually takes place on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the times listed below. I’m joined in the chat by TripIt as well as several co-hosts who help moderate the chat. Every month there’s a new topic from how to get the most out of your hotel/airline points to summer travel tips. We also give away two prizes every month consisting of a 1-year subscription to TripIt Pro and a cool bag of swag.
So what’s TripIt anyway you ask? In my very first Favorite Apps post I included TripIt and it still remains one of my favorite apps on my phone. Simply put, TripIt organizes all of your travel information for you and generates complete itineraries easily accessed through your mobile device. You can input the information manually if you want, but it’s so much easier (and cooler) to have them do it for you. All you do is forward your confirmation emails to them and within seconds a complete itinerary is “automagically” generated and posted in your TripIt account. I am endlessly fascinated by technology and this app really amazes me.
The basic version is free but there’s also a Pro version that’s great for the frequent flyer. I upgraded in last year and have been really impressed with the results.
Want to participate? Great! It’s super easy.
