The inaugural TPG Awards ceremony was this week in NYC, with everything from a live performance by Bebe Rexha to a special tribute to Captain Sully — in addition to awards for the best cards, loyalty programs and more, of course.
While the full list of TPG Awards winners is out, we wanted to give you a closer look at the nominees in each category. Remember, the winners in all categories except the best airline cabins were chosen by readers.
Let's take a look at the Best Mid-Tier Card of the Year category, which includes cards with annual fees up to $300. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card landed the most votes, likely due to perks like 2x points on all travel and dining. If you're not ready to commit to the $550 annual fee of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, which won Best Premium Card of the Year, this card's a great way to get your feet wet with Chase Ultimate Rewards points — one of the most valuable loyalty currencies.
While the CSP got the most votes, here's how the other finalists stacked up, in descending order:
- Chase Sapphire Preferred Card
- American Express® Gold Card
- Marriott Rewards Premier Plus Credit Card
- Citi Premier® Card
- Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card
Overall, an interesting mix of transferable points cards and those that earn rewards with a specific airline or hotel loyalty program.
