Several times a year I am asked about what unusual things I have redeemed miles and points for outside of traditional flights and award hotel nights. Well over 90% of my miles are redeemed for hotels and flights as that is why I collect them, and how I get the best return per point, but like with everything in life there are a few exceptions.
I shared one exception recently for this article about “Unexpected Ways to Use Your Frequent Flyer Miles”. but today another unique opportunity landed in my inbox that I wanted to share.
For 10,000 total United miles you and a friend can participate in the Houston Texans “Field Day Experience” on November 11th. This isn’t an auction, but rather a fixed price item that will give you and your friend access to the following events:
- Admission for two (2) to the Houston Texans Field Day
- Participation in the practice stations at the Training Center
- Appearance by Houston Texans players
- Meet & greet with Houston Texans cheerleaders
- VIP tour of NRG Stadium
- Dinner and a take-home gift bag
If you or someone you know is a really big Texans fan, then this could be a fun and unique way to spend 10,000 United miles. You can view this and other opportunities on the United Auctions website, but keep in mind that not all events are really auctions. Some are fixed priced items that might allow you to use some miles for some pretty unique experiences!
Have you ever spend your miles or points for a neat non-travel related experience?
