Last week we announced a very special contest for our Los Angeles readers to attend a reader meet-up, as well as the launch of our new TPG To Go app! The event will be held on Tuesday, October 28th, and in typical TPG fashion, no one will walk away empty-handed. In fact, we’re working on several monster prizes that will make your jaws drop. There will be cocktails, food and oh, yeah – the super-fun DJ Viceroy will be spinning.

TPG To Go is going to be packed with features that will allow you to maximize every single dollar you spend to get the most points possible. It’ll also help you track minimum spend and even anniversary bonuses that have traditionally been hard to keep track of. 

Introducing TPG To Go, coming soon to a smartphone near you!
