In the past, we’ve hosted reader events at cities throughout the U.S. — San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and others. But, there are a few cities that we haven’t been able to visit yet, and we always get requests for meet-ups in cities across the country. So, I’m so excited to announce that we’ll be offering more reader meet-up events in the coming months — and, yes, in cities that have eluded us.
Next week, in partnership with Starwood Hotels, we’re coming to Boston, Philadelphia and Dallas. TPG readers will be treated to an evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, all while talking about maximizing points. Before the end of each evening, one lucky reader will walk away with two free nights at any SPG property in the world (up to SPG Category 6). Think of all the possibilities and value you could get! TPG “swag bags” will be distributed to each guest, so you’ll be able to flaunt your loyalty.
I just returned from a PeaceJam conference in Cape Town, South Africa, and it was an incredible weekend, so I’m even more excited to share the news that SPG members will also have the opportunity to bid on a 30-minute, one-on-one points consultation with me. To enter to win the consultation at each event, go to the SPG Moments page and select the number of Starpoints you’d like to bid — all proceeds will be donated to PeaceJam through Points for Peace. The winner will be contacted, and our 30-minute, one-on-one discussion will take place at the venue before the evening kicks off.
If you’re interested in coming to any of the three events, RSVP by telling us on Twitter or Instagram which SPG property you would visit if you win one of the two free nights. Be sure to mention @thepointsguy and include #TPGSPGBoston, #TPGSPGPhiladelphia or #TPGSPGDallas, depending on which event you would like to attend. Those who RSVP will be contacted and given exact information about each location. Good luck!
Here are the exact dates for the three events so you can plan accordingly (stay tuned for more events, being announced soon):
- When: Tuesday, October 18 — 6:30pm-8:30pm
- When: Wednesday, October 19 — 6:30pm-8:30pm
- When: Friday, October 21 — 6:30pm-8:30pm
