Following up on my New Year’s resolution to have more face-to-face with my readers, I have planned a very special event in Manhattan this Saturday, March 1, following the first night of the New York Times Travel Show to do just that!

I am living my dream – I have the opportunity to travel the world and share my experiences and tips and I would love to meet some of my most loyal readers to discuss how points and travel have helped them live their dreams. I feel that you know a lot about me and my life, and after reading all of the amazing blog comments, tweets, Instagram posts and Facebook comments, I would like to learn more about you.

So in that spirit – and to celebrate after my appearance at the NY Times Travel Show – we are giving 30 lucky New York City-area TPG readers invitations to a party this coming Saturday, March 1, from 7-9pm where you’ll get to meet me and the rest of the TPG Team, talk about your travel plans and discuss the site and what you’d like to see. We will have food, drinks and special giveaways for everyone!

If you want to enter this contest, leave me a comment on this post telling me the most valuable thing you’ve learned from ThePointsGuy.com and how my site has helped you maximize your life! Enter by 10am ET on Friday, February 28th, and you must be in the NYC area and available to join us since we won’t be providing transportation, accommodation, etc. One entry per person. Don’t worry, if you aren’t able to make it to this event I plan on having more of these meet ups in different locations across the country.

Good luck and I hope to see you there!
