I’m excited to announce the launch of the TPG Lounge, a new Facebook Group where we can all come together to chat about travel, points, miles and credit cards. This does not replace our existing Facebook page; it’s a platform where readers can share and discuss their experiences with other points and miles enthusiasts.
Here’s what you can expect to do in the TPG Lounge:
- Connect with other members and share tips about deals, award availability and points/miles redemptions
- Post your own flight/hotel reviews and Reader Success Stories and have them potentially featured on the site
- Get advance previews of upcoming articles and participate in group polls and discussions
- Score invitations to the TPG office during scheduled open-house events
- Enter exclusive contests and find out about other upcoming members-only surprises (this is where we’ll be going with last-minute giveaways)
Visit the TPG Lounge for a full breakdown of guidelines and post do’s and don’ts.
It wouldn’t be a TPG launch without a giveaway! At the end of this week, 25 lucky members will be chosen to win a TPG-branded duffle bag full of surprise swag such as portable chargers and luggage trackers. And by Friday, I’ll be selecting one reader to attend a VIP event as a guest of mine in New York City — look for details later in the week.
Ultimately, the TPG Lounge is all about more interaction among readers and TPG staff — myself included. I look forward to hearing your stories.
