If you're a frequent flyer, you're always thinking about rewards points. You've signed up for travel loyalty programs, and you have credit cards that help you earn rewards, like first-class upgrades on flights and free nights in a hotel.

However, there are so many rewards programs, and airline, hotel and rental car loyalty programs, that it can be nearly impossible to keep track of them all. However, there's a neat travel app that'll help you find locations that take your rewards cards, to help you maximize the points you earn.

TPG To Go is from The Points Guy website. That site is a great resource, and how-to guide, that helps you find cards and loyalty programs, then guides you to earning as many rewards points as possible.

Its app, TPG To Go, will show you locations like cafes, restaurants and stores that accept your travel rewards cards. Even if you're in a city you've never been to, you can earn points. On its map, it will flag these stores, with more details about each one listed below the map.

TPG To Go will also give you news alerts about your rewards programs. Plus, its My Wallet feature shows you how many rewards points you've earned, and how many you missed out on. It also shows you a top-line overview of your accounts, like the balance due, your credit limit, and an overview of where you've been using that card, like 25% at restaurants.

TPG To Go is a fun and useful site, and it's a secure site. It's an encrypted app that uses bank-level security. Plus, you don't need to input any of your credit card numbers.
