Happy Pride Month, all!

This week, we decided to try something a little different.

While we always love to discuss everything related to points, miles, travel and aviation, today we’re coming to you from our headquarters in New York to talk about a very important part of who The Points Guy is. This is Brian’s coming out story:

We’d also like to introduce you to Rainbow Railroad, an organization that provides support for LGBTQI+ refugees as they seek safe haven from state-enabled violence, murder, or persecution around the world. By donating just $10 (or more — go as high as you’d like) to Rainbow Railroad via our Prizeo campaign, you have the chance to win the trip of a lifetime planned by TPG with 1,000,000 Chase points! Learn more about it, here.
