This past weekend, Team TPG had the opportunity to meet up with some of our most loyal readers in the Chicago area at our 2nd TPG Reader Meet-Up at the newly renovated W Lakeshore. We held a contest and 80 readers were picked to attend, and it was a great opportunity to connect with our readers, talk about some of the latest mileage and points news, plus give away some great prizes. We held a raffle for tickets to the Starwood Preferred Guest Luxury box at last night’s Chicago Cubs game, and we held an Instagram and Twitter contest for a 2-night stay at the W Chicago City Center, prizes courtesy of SPG. We had some great food and drinks and all guests left with some TPG and SPG swag. Here are some highlights, but definitely check out the full album on our Facebook page.
