2019 is shaping up to be a huge year for The Points Guy. As we continue to grow our brand across channels, our editorial team is expanding with several key hires. Today we’re thrilled to announce that Benét J. Wilson is joining the team as Credit Cards Editor.

Wilson comes to The Points Guy from MagnifyMoney and CompareCards, where she’s worked as Associate Editor for Travel and Rewards. She’s an avgeek at heart — you may recognize her as AvQueenBenet on Twitter — with experience covering the industry for trade publications and working for aviation nonprofit organizations. She serves on the boards of the Online News Association and Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism.

In her role as a Credit Cards Editor, Benét will serve as deputy to Senior Credit Cards Editor Sarah Silbert. She’ll help improve the breadth and depth of one of our core editorial verticals, and will also be jumping back into the world of aviation from time to time to work on features.

TPG continues to grow, with a recently launched UK site and more than 10 positions currently open for new hires.
