In February, we launched the TPG Maximizer, which is an all a new tool that takes our expert points knowledge, the best sign-up offers, and big data to recommend the best new card for you, personally. It is still in Beta, but it has helped hundreds of TPG readers analyze their spend and choose the best card that aligns with it.

TPG Maximizer, the best tool for you!

The TPG Maximizer can help you maximize what you’re spending in your wallet, so we thought it would be fun to give away a chic “Laltiro” wallet from luxury goods maker Bally. I have a similar wallet that is great for passport, credit cards and all sorts of foreign currency.

To enter, tweet to me (@ThePointsGuy) and tell me what card TPG Maximixer suggested to you with the hashtag #TPGMaximizer. You have until 5pm ET on Monday, May 12th to be eligible. You can only enter once, and the winner will be chosen at random and announced next week.

And the Winners of Last Week’s Prizes of a $400 American Airlines Giftcard is…

Last week, I asked what your favorite US Airways destination was and how many miles it would cost you to get there is you have the US Airways Premier Mastercard. We had tons of great responses, but there was one that real stood out from me, from TPG reader Will B. who said: “LAX to Lisbon (via Philly) could be had for as little as 60,000 miles with the right timing, or 55,000 with the Premier World card discount, and before you can say “umas ferias bem-merecidas,” I’d be taking a tram up to the Alfama to hear some Fado, or a bus to Evora to see the ruins.  Either way, I can promise there would be vinho verde and port involved sooner, or later, or both.”

Beautiful Lisbon!
Beautiful Lisbon!

Umas ferias bem-merecidas means “A well deserved vacation” in Portuguese, and I would have to agree will! Congrats on the $400 AA gift card, hopefully you can use it to get to Lisbon!
