Some of my favorite uses of points in the last few years weren’t actually on a hotel or airline awards, but rather for a unique experience via SPG Moments and similar programs. For example, a few years ago for my husband’s birthday we watched a Chicago Cub’s game at Wrigley Field in the SPG Luxury Box for just 7,500 total SPG points!
The points prices have gone up a little since then, but the opportunities via SPG Moments remain pretty much the same. If you want to go to a game at Wrigley Field in a luxury box on SPG points, or give your kid’s some on-field time at Wrigley before the first pitch, then go check out some of the new SPG Moments opportunities before the sell out! These are not auctions, but rather fixed price items you can buy with your SPG points.
Chicago Cubs SPG Moments Opportunities:
- 7-13 year old kid can take the field with the Cubs + two game tickets: 12,500 SPG points
- Two tickets to see the game from the SPG Luxury Suite (food and drinks included): 12,500 – 15,000 SPG points (children under 6 not permitted in the suite)
- Two tickets to see the game from the Club Box Seats: 7,500 – 10,000 SPG points
There are many games still to choose from throughout the season, but some have sold out, so don’t wait if you want in on this!
If you don’t have a stash of SPG points to spend on things like this, then I’d consider adding the Starwood Preferred Guest Amex to your wallet when the time is right so you can not only have some SPG hotel award stays, but be ready in case a SPG Moments opportunity pops up that looks perfect for your family!
