Use SPG Points at the US Open or to Play Ball at Wrigley Field

The SPG Moments program is one of my favorite ways to use points if you aren’t going to use them directly for travel. They offer really amazing access to events via your SPG points, and it is often the type of access you couldn’t buy with cash even if you tried. Two of the SPG events that I have really enjoyed in the past include watching a Cub’s game from the luxury box at Wrigley Field and hanging out in the hospitality suite at the US Open tennis tournament in New York with tennis legends.

Right now via SPG Moments, a very popular and cool opportunity to actually play ball on Wrigley Field is available and the US Open tennis packages will be going live in the near future. The opportunity to play softball on Wrigley Field comes with two choices – either you can buy a package for two people to play, or you can bid to field a whole team of 12 players! Both packages take places on July 30th (the teams play each other) and you get your own custom jersey, food and drinks, Wrigley Field tour, and more with both opportunities.
