A Brand-New Way to Get Your Daily Points and Miles Fix From TPG

If you’re one of the 100,000+ readers who gets their daily TPG fix from your email inbox, you woke up to find an entirely different newsletter waiting for you this morning. If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can register in just a few seconds right here. It’s the result of months of work by various members of the team — with such significant changes, I wanted to walk you through what’s new.

Aside from the design — part of which I’m going to share in a moment — the biggest change is that this newsletter is curated, often by yours truly. Our editorial team will be handpicking the stories you’ll see each day, including a mix of points and miles content and general travel industry news.

First, there’s a brief introduction, highlighting some of the most interesting stories of the day — this morning’s is just below:

Imagine returning from a trip to find that your keys no longer open the front door — and, oh wait, there’s a stranger living inside. One Georgia family now has a thank you note from their unwelcome intruder, and quite the story to share for the rest of their lives.

Today, we also check out some of the sharpest looking credit cards — including one that you can only sign up for through tomorrow — and we help you make the most of your points and miles, with a look at how much each currency’s worth this month.

-Zach Honig, Editor-at-Large

You’ll then see five of the day’s top articles, with custom headlines and summaries — you can always click on the title or image to bring up the full article.

The section below will change from one day to the next — this first edition features a newsletter introduction, though we’ll also use this space to share points and miles or travel tips, a reminder of deals with an end date just on the horizon and more.

Finally, we’ll round out each day with 10 articles — a mix of the most recent news, and content that didn’t quite find a home further up in the email. You can always expect to come across something interesting down here, though.
