The inaugural TPG Awards is taking place on December 4, and you can take part in our “10 Days of Travel” contest in connection with the awards. In case you missed earlier posts, all you need to do to enter is vote for winners in our Readers’ Choice categories. As soon as you complete the secure Google poll, you’ll automatically be added to the list to win that day’s prize and all future prizes, culminating in an incredible giveaway on November 1: a first-class flight on Emirates!

Yesterday’s giveaway saw one lucky voter walk away with a $500 Southwest gift card. We once again used Random.org to select from the thousands of readers who voted prior to midnight, and the winner was Hans M. from Texas. He will undoubtedly get some great use from the prize, especially if he has the Southwest Companion Pass. Even if he doesn’t, the carrier also provides added value by not charging for checked bags and allowing travelers to adjust their flights without incurring change or cancellation fees, so his newfound $500 can go a long way.

Today’s prize is a $500 Delta gift card. Atlanta’s hometown carrier offers a consistent in-flight experience, and this prize can help you qualify for Delta elite status before the end of the year. But will its SkyMiles program take home the award for Best Airline Loyalty program? We’ll find out in early December, but if you vote today, you’ll have a voice in which airlines, hotel programs and credit cards will walk away with a TPG Award.

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.)
