If you are a tennis fan with some Starwood Preferred Guest points to spend, then be sure and check out the SPG Moments redemption opportunities that just came out for the US Open matches that will be happening in New York in late August and early September. Some are auctions and some are fixed point redemption opportunities – I’m sure the final auction price will depend greatly on the associated match.
I visited the SPG tent and watched some matches as part of the SPG US Open event last year (as a guest of SPG) and found it to be a really well done event. Lots of food, lots of drinks. and even Monica Seles and autographed tennis balls (that I shared) on the night we visited!
When I went last year I ran into several SPG junkies who had redeemed points or taken advantage of a pretty reasonably priced purchase option that went out last year. I have plans to attend as a guest again this year, and am looking forward to it. I hope to be lucky enough to run into more SPG points junkies/tennis fans!
