For years you’ve been following Brian Kelly’s luxurious travels on Instagram. But now that The Points Guy has grown from one man into a full-blown, trusted media brand, covering everything from breaking travel news to must-have credit cards, we’re adding another piece to the TPG family: A brand Instagram account @ThePointsGuy.
The new brand account, which went live today, offers travel tips and inspiration, all forms of AvGeekery, and of course, everything you need to know about maximizing your points and miles game. Join us on Instagram stories for daily takeovers from our editors (as well as the occasional guest host), sneak peeks at the best lounges, cabins and hotels around the world, plus surprise quizzes that allow you to win some TPG swag.
The new @thepointsguy page enables us to provide even more earning-and-burning tips and insider knowledge than ever before. Followers will come away with not only serious wanderlust — gorgeous destinations, hidden natural wonders, and first-class cabins to die for — but also the knowledge and tools needed to make dream vacations a reality.
Have a tip of your own, or a great redemption you want to share? Follow and tag us on Instagram and join the TPG Lounge on Facebook to interact with our editors and even get the chance to be featured on our new account.
