Today, TPG Senior Points & Miles Correspondent Nick Ewen indulges our love for crowning a champion, as he continues with the finals of the TPG Travel Rewards 2015 Tournament.

Last month, we announced the TPG Travel Rewards 2015 tournament, and over the last few weeks, thousands of TPG readers have weighed in on which travel reward is most valuable. Today, I’m excited to announce the two rewards that have earned a spot in the championship game: the Southwest Companion Pass, and Stopovers and Open Jaws!

The Companion Pass decisively took down the off-peak awards offered by American Airlines. However, Stopovers and Open Jaws on award tickets was in a dog fight with the Chase Ink Plus 5x Bonus right up to the end, barely squeaking by with a 51% majority. It’s now once again up to you to decide which of these two valuable benefits will be crowned champion!

Here’s what the updated bracket looks like:

I won’t rehash the details of these rewards, since I’ve already covered both of them in depth in the previous posts:

Instead, I will simply open up voting to TPG readers. Vote in the poll below to tell us which reward is most valuable to you!

It’s down to Southwest Companion Pass and Stopovers & Open Jaws. Which will come out on top?

Southwest Companion Pass vs. Stopovers & Open Jaws

Voting for the last round will only be open until Monday, which coincides with the NCAA men’s basketball tournament championship. On Tuesday, I’ll wrap-up the series and officially crown the winner of the TPG Travel Rewards Tournament. I’ll also share some of my general thoughts on the tournament, including the results I found surprising.

I’d also like to thank those of you who cast a vote for the championship (or in any of the rounds of the tournament). It has been fascinating to see which benefits and programs TPG readers hold in high regard, so I appreciate you taking the time to read and weigh in on the match-ups.

Cast your votes, and check back in on Tuesday to see who wins!
