We had a blast hosting trivia at last year’s TPG Awards — so we decided to bring it back this year. But if you want to participate, you only have a few hours left to register.

Tonight, we’ll be hosting another round of TPG’s Night of Giveaways, a fun-filled evening of trivia as we wrap up the 2021 TPG Awards.

It’s been a busy few weeks here at The Points Guy, with an array of award announcements and live events across our various platforms. But we’re most excited about this final event, as it’s an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and win some terrific prizes, including:

  • $600 worth of Southwest gift cards
  • A round-trip domestic flight (worth up to $500)
  • A new smart-charging system from ARROE
  • Apple AirPods Max noise-canceling headphones
  • And more!

Here are the full details:

Date: Today (Thursday Nov. 18, 2021)
Time: 6:00 p.m. EST / 3:00 p.m. PST
Location: Zoom Webinar — Register here

Sign up for our daily newsletter

Most of our webinars — like last week’s TPG Talks session and Tuesday's Amex webinar — involve just a single platform (Zoom). However, for this trivia event, you need to connect to the webinar and have a second device to answer the questions.

This may seem confusing, but here’s exactly what you need to do to participate:

  1. Register for the Zoom webinar.
  2. Log in to the webinar at the scheduled start time using the unique link from your confirmation email.
  3. Open up the CrowdPurr platform using your second device.
  4. Enter the unique access code for this event, then click Join.

We will send this access code in the reminder email one hour prior to the start of the webinar. It will also be displayed as soon as you log in.

Once the game begins, you’ll hear the audio through Zoom but enter your answers through CrowdPurr — so you must join both the webinar and access the CrowdPurr event to participate.

The trivia will be broken up into three rounds, each covering one of the themed weeks of the awards — airlines, travel (including hotels, destinations and cruises) and credit cards. Some questions may come from the 2021 TPG Awards, but others may be general knowledge. Just be prepared to answer quickly, as you’ll earn points based on not only the accuracy of your answers but also the speed at which you submit those responses.

If you want to take home some great prizes, be sure to register now, as registration will close in just a few hours.


Note that by registering to participate in this Contest, contestants agree to the Official General Rules and Additional Rules. Please reach out to nick.ewen@thepointsguy.com with any questions about eligibility, registration or accessing the event.

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.
