Yesterday's Winner and Day 4 of Giveaways for the TPG Awards
The countdown marches on to the inaugural TPG Awards on December 4, and we're also continuing our "10 Days of Travel" contest to reward our loyal readers for taking time to vote in the Readers' Choice categories. We've already given away over $1,000 in prizes, and all you need to do to enter is complete the secure Google poll and let us know what credit cards, airlines and hotel programs are worthy of an honor. You'll then be automatically added to the list to win today's prize and all future prizes. The earlier you enter, the more you could win.
Yesterday's giveaway saw one lucky voter walk away with a $500 Delta gift card. We once again used Random.org to select from the thousands of readers who voted prior to midnight, and Tyler E. was chosen as the winner. He will likely get some solid value from the prize, especially if he's chasing Delta elite status. The SkyMiles program may not have published award charts anymore, but the carrier is still a favorite for domestic travel and has run a number of flash award sales this year.
Today's prize is 50,000 Marriott points, worth $400 based on TPG's most recent valuations. The recently-integrated Marriott and SPG program got off to a rocky start, though there are some terrific values in the full award chart. But will the combined program take home the award for Best Hotel Loyalty program? If you vote today, you'll have a say in that very question as you help choose 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.)
