As we approach the one-year anniversary of our TPG To Go app, which lets you maximize your credit card rewards on the go, we’re excited to introduce a fantastic new tool to the TPG family! Available today, the TPG for Google Chrome browser extension recommends which card to use for online purchases.
The extension works with the same account you use with TPG To Go, so all of your credit cards are instantly available when you sign in within Chrome. Then, whenever you visit a website, the extension analyzes the URL, displaying the best card to use for any given site. You can also cycle through your other cards, ordered based on your potential return, just as you can with the mobile app.
Here’s how it works:
You can browse the internet as you usually do. Then, when you’re ready to check out, click the TPG button (seen here in the top right corner) to see which card you should use. In this case, with Staples.com loaded, the extension is recommending the Chase Ink Plus Business card, which offers 5 points per dollar on purchases at office supply stores.
When you visit Starwood Hotels, you’ll see the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express.
And when you visit an airline website, you’ll see an airline card if that makes sense (such as the Aviator Silver when you visit AA.com, since that gets you 3 miles per dollar). Otherwise, the extension will recommend the best points-earning card; in this case, the Citi ThankYou Premier Card.
The extension currently supports more than 1,700 sites, however if you come across a site that isn’t yet supported, you can click to request that it be added to the database. TPG for Google Chrome, TPG To Go and the TPG Maximizer are brought to you by our friends at Walla.by. Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
