Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
As we announced yesterday, we're giving away a slew of prizes over the next several days for readers who cast their votes for the inaugural TPG Awards. The "10 Days of Travel" contest runs through Thursday November 1, and all you need to do to enter is vote! Once you complete our secure Google poll, you'll automatically be entered to win that day's prize and all future prizes.
Yesterday's giveaway offered one lucky voter the chance to have an annual fee on a top travel rewards credit card paid by TPG for one year. We used Random.org to select from the thousands of readers who submitted their ballots before midnight Eastern Time, and the winner was Maggie O. from California! She is a proud cardholder of the United Explorer Card and will now have the $95 annual fee paid for a year. Of course, this particular card can be well worth it in the long run, but now Maggie will enjoy a year of using the card without any out-of-pocket expense.
Today's prize is simple: a $500 Southwest gift card. This carrier is a great option for families and also has flexible change and cancellation policies. But will its Rapid Rewards program take home the award for Best Airline Loyalty program? Only time will tell, but if you vote today, you'll have a say in which credit cards, airlines and hotel programs take home a TPG Award in December.
Here's a complete list of the prizes through the "10 Days of Travel" contest:
Day 1 (Oct. 23) — TPG pays the annual fee for one year on any one of your credit cards (Winner: Maggie O.)
