TPG has grown quite a bit over the past few months. We’ve added editors and contributors, integrated new tools and made reporting news quickly and accurately a top priority, bringing you the stories you want to read within a few hours or even minutes of when they break. Still, we can do better — and we will — but to get there, we need your help.

Today, we’re very excited to introduce a new platform for you to interact with TPG. As of this morning, we’ve launched a dedicated tips inbox, which we hope will aid in reporting brand developments, program changes and general travel industry news more quickly than ever before. When you spot news that you think would be a fit for TPG, please send us an email at Tips@thepointsguy.com. If we run a story based on your pitch, we’ll give you a $100 Visa gift card to use during your own travels (or for anything else).

As we expect a lot of volume, please make sure your email follows the sample format below:

Subject: Delta raises partner award redemption rates

Text: I was booking an award with my Delta miles for travel in October and noticed that the award redemption rate for JFK-ICN has jumped from 70,000 to 80,000 miles in business class. There’s a FlyerTalk thread discussing this development as well. If you run this tip, please credit [Your Name].

And finally, a quick disclaimer: Note that a news story may already be in the works when you email, or we may have received another tip — if we publish based specifically on the tip you provide, we’ll reach out to confirm your mailing address so we can send a $100 Visa gift card your way! Finally, note that we’ll generally only respond once your tipped story has been published, though we may be in touch to request more details, if necessary.

We look forward to seeing your news tips!
