The Freddie Awards (think Academy Awards of the loyalty program world!) are coming right up, so it’s time for another TPG reader giveaway!

The ceremony itself will be held on the evening of Thursday, April 26, 2012, at the Renaissance Newark Airport. This is the premier award ceremony for travel loyalty programs and millions of votes are cast by travelers around the world for their favorite airline, hotel and credit card promotions. Voting is closed, so I hope you got your ballots in already.

I’ll actually be presenting one of the awards that night, and I’ve arranged to get a whole table so I can give away 4 more (TPG readers John and Rocky got seats for participating in my Expiring Upgrade Exchange)  seats to TPG readers. It’ll be a great opportunity to meet with the people behind some of the biggest frequent flyer and hotel loyalty programs out there, plus it’s pretty fun!

In order to win you have to do one (or any) of the following:

1. Because the big news of the week is the British Airways 100,000 mile Chase Visa bonus, I’ll be giving away two seats to readers who share a tip on using British Airways Avios miles in the comments section of this post.

2. I’ll give away another to someone who Tweets me @thepointsguy with a BA tip including the hashtag: #tpgBA100k.

3. I’ll give the final seat away to a Facebook member who writes on my wall which airline and hotel (please name both) will win top honors at the award ceremony.

You can enter the contest through each method only once, so make your comments, Tweets and wall posts count! Also, please note, this giveaway will just be tickets to sit at my table at the award ceremony.  I will not be providing any travel or accommodations, so you have to get yourself there and arrange your own stay or transportation home.

I can’t wait to hear all your tips and insights, and to meet a few of you at the Freddies in a few weeks!
