More about Rainbow Railroad

Rainbow Railroad is an organization with a dedicated team of human rights defenders and advocates on the front lines of the fight for global LGBTQIA+ rights. Specifically, the organization helps LGBTQIA+ people facing violence and oppression around the world get to safety. And Rainbow Railroad’s work could not be more important than it is right now.

We’ve partnered with this organization many times in the past, and this year, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Chase Sapphire to give one lucky winner a trip worth 1 million Ultimate Rewards points. All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is donate at least $10 to Rainbow Railroad.

THE POINTS GUY

You don’t even need to be a Sapphire cardmember to win the grand prize — though here at TPG, we strongly recommend that you have one of these cards (especially with the current offer on the Chase Sapphire Reserve).

Ultimate Rewards points can be incredibly powerful, whether you're looking to transfer them to partners like World of Hyatt or United Mileage Plus or using them to book travel directly through Chase. And if you win the grand prize of a trip worth up to 1 million points, you'll have plenty of opportunities to make the most of them.

How to enter

It’s simple to enter the sweepstakes: Simply donate at least $10 through this link in support of Rainbow Railroad.

Yes — that’s it.

Additional donation levels will unlock even more prizes including TPG swag, autographed books by friends of the brand (like Matt James and Gaby Dunn) and more.

This is a great opportunity to not only support a phenomenal organization but also be entered for a chance to win fantastic prizes.

However, this campaign ends on Sunday, so be sure you submit your donation by 11:59 p.m. EST to secure your entry into the drawing for the grand prize.

Don't wait — donate now!

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
