Last chance to vote for the winners at this year's TPG Awards
The TPG Awards are back — and in a big way.
For the first time in three years, we’re thrilled to celebrate the best of luxury travel, loyalty programs and credit cards with an in-person event. On Dec. 7, we’re coming together in New York City for the 2022 TPG Awards, and for the first time, we’re opening the fun up to you, our readers!
If you want to join the celebration — including cocktail hour, sponsor activations, the awards ceremony, a special musical guest and after party — tickets are now available through this link.
However, we also need your help selecting this year's winners, as you have just two days left to cast your vote.
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 11) for the 15 Readers’ Choice honors we’ll hand out next month. These categories cover all aspects of the travel and loyalty industries — including credit cards, aviation, hotels and cruises. It’s your chance to have a say in which brands will take home trophies this year, and if you vote today, you'll be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to attend the live event.
We’re even donating up to $50,000 to charity on behalf of our voters, so completing a ballot today will support a great cause as well.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Readers’ Choice categories at the 2022 TPG Awards.
2022 TPG Awards voting
To cast your vote for this year’s Readers’ Choice awards, visit this link to complete your ballot. Be sure to make your picks carefully, as voting is limited to once per person. The link will remain open through Friday, Nov. 11 at 11:59 p.m. (EDT) — so you must open and complete the survey prior to that date and time.
Here’s an overview of the 15 trophies we’re handing out this year at the fifth annual TPG Awards:
|Credit cards||Best Premium Travel Credit Card (annual fee of $300-plus).
Best Travel Rewards Credit Card (annual fee of $1-$300).
Best No-Annual-Fee Credit Card.
Best Business Credit Card.
Best Airline Cobranded Credit Card.
Best Hotel Cobranded Credit Card.
|Airlines||Best U.S. Airline Loyalty Program.
Best Airport Lounge Network.
|Hotels||Best Hotel Loyalty Program.
Best Luxury Hotel Brand.
Best Affordable Hotel Brand.
|Cruises||Best Mainstream Cruise Line.
Best Luxury Cruise Line.
Best Family Cruise Line.
Best River Cruise Line.
Note that each one of the 15 awards does require a response (and you can even select up to two candidates for the cobranded card awards).
However, each question does include a “Not applicable” answer choice — so if you can’t decide or don’t feel informed enough to answer, simply select that option for those honors.
Prize for voting
We've already given out an array of prizes to randomly-selected voters, including guidebooks from Lonely Planet and one-year memberships to ExpertFlyer (both of which are owned by TPG's parent company, Red Ventures). But we've saved the best for last.
In addition to making your voice heard, casting a vote for the Readers’ Choice award winners today will also earn you a chance to win a trip for two to attend the 2022 TPG Awards!
This prize includes a pair of round-trip, domestic flights from anywhere in the lower 48 states to New York, two nights in a hotel room in Manhattan, plus two tickets to attend the event on Dec. 7. This year's celebration is sure to be one to remember — including specialty cocktails, various interactive experiences, a surprise musical guest and an after party (featuring DJ Lina Bradford).
Note that the giveaway is open to legal adult U.S. residents. You must be at least 21 years old to win. You must also opt in for the giveaway when voting — see the full rules at this link.
Cast your vote today for a chance to win this terrific prize!
Eligibility: Vote must be received by Nov. 11, 11:59:59 p.m. (EDT). Approximate retail value: $2,000.
Charity donations for the first 50,000 votes
There’s one more reason to complete the survey and help pick this year’s winners. New for 2022, we’re including charitable giving as part of voting. Specifically, we will donate $1 for every submitted vote to Make-A-Wish, up to $50,000 in total.
Make-A-Wish is an incredible organization that provides life-changing experiences for children with critical illnesses, frequently using travel as a force for good to make these wishes happen. We’re excited to turn your votes into a donation that will impact an amazing charity.
Ticket sales are now open
If you aren't fortunate enough to win the grand prize for voting, you can still join us at the live event. Tickets are now on sale for our readers, and you can purchase them at this link.
The doors will open at 7 p.m. at New York’s Terminal 5 event venue, at 610 West 56th Street in Manhattan. You can purchase up to eight tickets, though please note that the event is only open to readers 21 and older.
