For the most part I like to use my miles and points for travel, but every now and then I stumble across a pretty reasonable deal to use points for something else. Over the past few years I have seen some decent opportunities to use SPG points via the “Moments by SPG” program to gain access to different events. Today I saw some packages posted in the SPG Moments program that seem pretty decent to me if you are a baseball fan, so I wanted to share.
If you like the Cubbies and/or just want to see a game at Wrigley Field in Chicago, then you can do that by using a few thousand SPG points. Here are a few of the packages available:
- Two Club Box Seats for 5,000 SPG points with several games to choose from. From looking at the Cub’s website it appears that these tickets sell for around around $100 each with the price varying some according to the specific game. So, 5,000 points for two of them is a good deal, even though I personally value SPG points pretty highly (likely at a little over 2 cents a piece).
- Two Luxury Suites Seats for 7,500 (this comes with food and beverage throughout the game). From a cursory look on the Cub’s site I don’t see this type of seat for sale, but presumably if it were it would be for even more than the Club Box seats since it comes with refreshments.
- “Take the Field Fridays” for 7,500 (includes two club box tickets and one spot for your kid 12 or younger to take the field during player introductions before the game). The details indicate that your son or daughter will join eight other SPG(R) kids in taking the field with the Chicago Cubs during the team introductions.
There are also tickets available for Cub’s road games for 5,000 per pair and some auctions for various Cubs related experiences as well. These tickets go through the end of the regular season, but do have limited quantities. I’m a bit tempted myself as I would love to see the Cub’s play at Wrigley and what is more family friendly than a baseball game? …and Lord knows it’s painful to watch my own home team, the Astros, play these days.
