    Got an email from tripcase announcing my upcoming trip..... I've NEVER HEARD OF THEM! How did they get my email, trip info, etc? I use tripit - so are they selling/giving my private info out? :angry:

    Sabre owns them, along with a bunch of others.

    Maybe it's related to that rather than TripIt?

    But I don't use Sabre so still don't know how they would get access to my email and trip details!

    Who did you book the flight through? I've received similar from some TAs over the years. It is not TripIt selling that info to another company AFAIK. At least it hasn't been for me.

    Me and my wife have been using TripIt since 2007-2008 I think, and I've never seen this soft of notification about an upcoming trip from anyone else.

    I've seen Google's tentacles all over my phone, reminding me of stuff or related content, but never an actual email from anybody with my upcoming trip details - unless it was something I booked through virtuoso and they sent me a reminder themselves.

    If this is from TripIt it is likely that they are pulling the information either from your linked Gmail account or via your linked award program accounts as part of your TripIt Pro subscription.

    We can get the service for free with the Arrival Card, I did not sign up for it,

    I also receive my wife's info, and she does not have the Arrival Card yet.

    But you still have it. Who cares how you got it?

    Is she a named traveler in your TripIt account?

    Also, this has nothing to do with TripCase.

    So far.....wrote to tripit support. They say they don't give out info and tripcase is a competitor. Don't think UA gave the info out (or I think more people would have complained). Tripit is still trying to help me figure it out.
