Travel and leisure media platform The Points Guy launched the TPG app yesterday, which has four key features according to the announcement:

“We have spent the last 10 years helping people see the world. We’re thrilled to unveil this app, which has been years in the making, to help travelers better utilize their points and miles to make their travel dreams a reality,” Brian Kelly, Founder and CEO of The Points Guy, said in an announcement. “This app is groundbreaking in that it gives travelers an end-to-end way to explore and master award travel. I’ve seen hardcore earners track loyalty program rules in Excel sheets and Post-it Notes, so we’re excited for the app to make the chaos systematic and hopefully entice more casual earners to participate in tracking.”

Kelly said that the app’s main goal is to get people to earn more points. “Especially with the pandemic, people are up to their gills in points,” he told CNBC. “They’re spending every day, but they’re not traveling, so this creates a unique situation where there’s just so many outstanding points, and people don’t know how to use them.”
