Gonna be great!

Great work TPG Team. A few suggestions:

1. The Alaska Miles on the Award Explorer are showing half the real price (you’re pulling the data from their website as a roundtrip price but really they are shown in one-ways)

2. In “Cards,” it would be cool if there was a button for “what are you buying” and then a card recommendation - you could also monetize that pretty easily. Users could select “gas” or “clothes” or you could even break it down by vendor (#ads). Rakuten or Honey would also probably love to get involved in that.

3. I have two cards from the same bank, but it will only list the “current points” for one of the cards on the Points tab even though both are in the Cards tab. Just a minor thing, and I read in your FAQs you can’t fix it yet.

4. Lots of options for the Award Explorer tab. This was a fantastic idea. I would love to be able to put in my home airport and it would give me a list of all the places I could go at various rates.

5. There really needs to be a simple video made about how to turn transferable currencies into flights. I remember getting AMEX points and then realizing how difficult it was to see it through. Transferring to Air Canada - I had to figure it out on my own. If you can make a video called “turn your points into flights” or something it would go along why on the learning curve. Once I figured it out, my world was mine for the traveling.

6. I’ll work with you anytime if you’d like a new team member.

Truly the travel app of my dreams (so far!)

I was so lucky to come off the waiting list for TPG app today and have been waiting for so long since Brian at TPG announced his app. I’ve been in the “credit card rewards” life for a few years now and the biggest problem I have had is keeping track of which card and/or loyalty program is offering the best bang-for-my-buck at any given time in the year. And this app does that.

After entering in my credit cards (all Chase mind you) and loyalty programs, the app not only gives me a current value for all my points, it also intelligently tells me where I missed more earning potential for each category of purchase. Additionally, it has an amazing “award explorer” that will give you the best estimate point redemption for any air travel given the loyalty program you’re enrolled in. As of this moment it does not search actual award charts as it only bases it off published and estimated redemption values, however it is a great starting place when it comes to award travel.

It still needs a little help with some bugs, most notably that my app seems to log me out every other time I launch the app, but given its still in the “invite only” phase I expect that to be patched up before the full release. I am truly excited to see where TPG continues to go with this app!

Has the potential to be the greatest!

Great app! I had a few technical problems early on but I understand that this is a bet version and they have since been resolved. I would suggest that the feature allowing you to check which card is best to use for a certain store or category should be more prominent. It is only located with a single button on the “Cards” tab and when I test it from home I only get a popup suggesting one business that is a mile away from my current location. I think there should be drop down list of locations nearby to choose from. This feature should also have its own tab in the app since I believe it would be heavily used. I would also suggest adding the ability to automatically add or sign up for different card offers like the quarterly bonus categories for the Freedom Flex or the different vendor offers for AMEX and Chase. I still like the easier access to the TPG articles and calculation of points accrued and missed but I suggest adding all of the aforementioned features to make this app the best in the “points and miles” business. I hope you strongly consider my suggestions. Thanks!

Hi DW, thanks so much for your great suggestions. Would you mind contacting our support team in the "More" section of the app for your Amex Platinum bonus tracker? That does sound like a bug we'd love to get resolved for you!
