Travel News: The Points Guy Re-Launches TPGtv
TPGtv gets straight to the point: The Points Guy announces the re-launch of TPGtv with a new short, fast, and information-driven format. This one-of-a-kind web series showcases the extraordinary travel experiences made possible by maximizing frequent flyer miles and credit card points and has established itself as an indispensable resource for travel lovers. Since it launched in February, TPGtv has generated over 8.4M views. With the debut of the new episodes, viewers will discover The Points Guy, Brian Kelly’s, smartest travel strategies and personal recommendations in 90-second to two-minute episodes that are packed full of priceless information. Each video was produced with social media in mind so that viewers can consume them without sound and through easy-to-read captions that follow every detail of Kelly’s trips, from the points he used to the dishes he ate.
The next 17 episodes in TPGtv deliver targeted tips for one of Asia’s most desirable locations: Japan. Episode One, How to Book Singapore Suites in 90 Seconds, explains the best tactic for securing Singapore Suites, one of the world’s most luxurious first-class flight experiences on Singapore Airlines, valued at over $7,000, using credit card points. Kelly used Suites to start his epic adventure flying from Los Angeles to Tokyo by using miles and only paying $23 out of pocket. Episode Two, Inside LAX’s Secret Celebrity Airport Lounge, shows how to access a little-known perk offered only to genuine high flyers, which can include those traveling on points. Episode Three, Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt or Andaz, Which is Tokyo’s Best Hyatt?, shares Kelly’s inside scoops on the most coveted hotel rooms in Japan – later episodes feature more in-depth reviews of each property that have become a staple of TPGtv. Additional episodes include The 7 Must Try Dishes in Tokyo, Drone Shots Over Tokyo That Will Blow Your Mind, The Best Places in Japan to See Cherry Blossoms, and finally, ANA’s Star Wars Plane and How I Flew First Class for $223.
